For your convenience, leotards, tights, dance bags and shoes in sizes toddler through adult may be purchased in our Dance Boutique. 

Benefits of purchasing from our studio:

  • Quality & Affordability – we carry a complete line of high quality leotards and shoes from top manufacturers at an affordable price
  • Proper Fit – our staff is available to help assure the best fit.  
  • Easy Exchange – in the event there is an issue with a shoe fit, we’ll gladly swap out for the proper size.
  • To allow the instructors to view the body line easily, it is important that proper attire is worn and hair is secured to the head for every class.  Click here to view a video with instructions on how to put your child’s hair in a bun.
