Hip-Hop students should purchase a clean tennis shoe that can be worn for class only (no outside shoes in dance rooms).

Dance Dance supplies can be purchased at Fanci Footwork's, located in the Plaza on the corner of 23 Mile Road & Van Dyke (Near Planet Fitness).

DANCE SHOES - Important! Check with your teacher for proper fit before you wear your shoes in class. Ballet shoes and jazz shoes should have no more than a thumbs width for growth. Please consult with your teacher before purchasing Pointe shoes. When purchasing new Pointe shoes, please have the shoes fit without toe pads (lambs wool would be best). The use of bulky toe pads inhibits proper manipulation of the feet in the shoes and feeling the floor. Although toe pads may be more "comfortable," settling into the shoe occurs rather than pulling up out of the shoe with the legs. Certain structural problems will be individually addressed if necessary. Do Not sew ribbons on pointe shoes until teacher checks for proper fit.
