Dancers entering Kindergarten are eligible to enroll in the following classes. If dancers want to enroll in both disciplines, it is suggested that dancers NOT enroll in back to back classes. Kindergarteners, especially at the beginning of the year, have a big transition to full-day school. We recommend spreading classes out throughout the week and not signing up for more than one class a night!
TAP/BALLET COMBO: Dress Code
Leotard (any color or style) & dance tights
Pink Ballet Shoes (Bloch or SoDanca brand only)
Tan/Carmel Tap Shoes
It is important that dancers have proper pink ballet shoes from name brands (Bloch or SoDanca). There are many off-brand, lower-quality shoes being sold in stores like Walmart and Target and many online retailers like Amazon that are NOT quality brands (Capezio Daisy, Capezio Love, Stelle, ABT for Spotlight, etc…).
These shoes do not provide the same support and do not allow dancers to point and flex their feet. These factors lead to dancers developing poor habits and technique, which is the opposite of our goal!
HIP HOP: Dress Code
Comfortable activewear or, if dancers are coming from another class, leotard & dance tights
White Pastry brand hip hop sneakers (available at Madison's Dancewear)
Dancers should swap out laces with elastic ties (for purchase at Madison's) to make the shoe process more efficient.
Dancers should NOT wear their Hip Hop shoes outside!
