Shoes & Tights

Shoes & Tights: Shoes and tights are NOT included in the costume fee. All costumes requiring tights will be charged to your account. You will be responsible for one pair of the same tights. For example, if your dancer is in two routines and they both require pink tights, you will only be charged for one pair. If you would like additional pairs as backup, you are welcome and encouraged to purchase them. Tights must be purchased at the studio and should be clean with no runs or holes on them.

Underwear is not required to be worn under costumes except those that come with pants or shorts. This is to avoid them being shown through their costume on stage!

Make sure you have the right color and style of shoes for each routine. If you are unsure, please refer to the checklist on the costume bag. We sell ballet, lyrical half-soles and jazz shoes at the studio. Shoes are available to purchase in studio, but if you prefer to shop online please see these links below as a helpful guide.

Lyrical Tan Half Soles

Black & Tan Jazz Shoes
