This year, we are requiring that students in Class 4 wear leather soled dance shoes.
Our recommended shoes for girls is the So Danca 1” Buckle Strap Character Heel. Other shoes may be substituted, but they need to have a leather sole and a heel that is 1″ or less.
Boys can wear a leather soled dress shoe, but it is important that the shoes have a flexible sole. Boys wearing up to a size 8 in mens can purchase reasonably priced shoes online (see below), but if they have bigger feet, shoes get more expensive. Contact us for more information!
