Helpful Hints for shoe advice and parents of New Dancers
 

Shoes which fit properly are fundamental to the learning process. We encourage parents to provide dancers with quality dance wear and shoes, so they can benefit fully from their dance classes. P.K. Dancewear is an excellent source for dance supplies and is located on Lancaster Blvd in Lancaster. Similarly, Discount Dance Supply is a wonderful online store for all your dance attire needs at affordable prices!

Ballet shoes – we discourage wearing used ballet shoes, Ballet ‘slippers’ sold at target or Walmart or purchasing ballet shoes several sizes too large in hopes that they can be worn for several years. Ballet shoes should fit exactly (almost like a pair of socks), so that teachers can see problems and make corrections.  There are many excellent brand names available — we suggest a split-sole style. Elastics on ballet shoes should be sewn with one strap at the ankle.
 

Tap shoes – Bloch and SoDanca have a good sounding taps and quality brands for younger dancers. If possible, a lace-up tap shoe would be ideal.

We can’t stress enough the importance of having good quality shoes that fit (not too big, not too small).  If you’re looking for the best place to invest your “dance attire dollars” — it’s in shoes.  Good shoes are essential.
