Special Note on Shoes

It is very important for the safety and health of your dancer that he/she wear shoes that fit properly. Allowing too much room for growth may increase the potential for accidents (tripping) and ankle/knee problems from increased torque on the joints while changing directions or turning. Jazz and Ballet shoes will stretch as they are worn, and the foot shortens when a dancer points their toes, so please take this into consideration when purchasing your dance shoes. A good rule of thumb is to fit your child’s dance shoes like socks, rather than athletic shoes. For the health and safety of your child, your teacher’s decision is final regarding the fit of your child’s dance shoes.
