- All ladies need a solid black leotard, pink footed/convertible tights, black bottoms of choice for modern, and at least on additional leotard of any color and style. In addition, pink split-sole ballet shoes (leather or canvas) and black leather split-sole jazz shoes (slip on style preferred). (Split-sole shoes have two soles – one at the ball of the foot and one at the heel. Please note that all elastics must be sewn directly to the shoes.) (Black pedinis are acceptable for both AM and PM classes as well.)
- AM and PM ladies should have either black or tan, split-sole, leather jazz shoes and/or black pedinis. (AM and PM Dancers will need tan slip on jazz shoes and black pedinis by mid-October for our winter performances and black tap shoes for the start of 2nd quarter.)
- Ladies will need to have their hair secured off of their face and neck in a bun or twist for ballet class.
- Gentlemen need black canvas or leather, split-sole ballet shoes and black leather jazz shoes. In addition, a white tank top or tshirt and black gym shorts.
All of the above items and supplies should be purchased individually (see attached list of stores and websites) and be brought to class by the 2nd week of school. If you have any questions about the fit/style of your new dance shoes, please bring them the first day of class and I will check the fit before they are sewn/worn. If you are concerned about expense, please contact Ms Heininge via phone or email as soon as possible.
