You've gotten your supplies for the new school year. But what about the dance year? It is important to go through our checklist and make sure you are prepared. The first day back to classes can be chaotic, so having everything you need (or if you have a young dancer, making sure they have all they need) will make you feel like a "Rockstar" and allow you to dance your best! PLEASE do not wait until 5 minutes before class to try to get everything. (Plus we don't sell shoes on the first week back as shoe fittings take a good amount of time). Go through our checklist. At the bottom of this page is requirements for each class attire.
Go through our Back to Dance Checklist:
Check to see if all your shoes fit from last year. If they have holes in them, it’s time for a new pair! If you are taking any new classes like lyrical or hip hop check that you have the required shoes. If your shoes are merely too small and not worn out, consider donating them to the studio's borrow bin!
Check that all your dance attire still fits and has no holes. Get new tights if they have holes in them. You dance your best when you feel your best. So make sure you get new leotards, leggings or tops if yours are getting ratty or smelly! You can get leotards and tights at the studio. If you need fitted, affordable black dance attire, consider checking out Marshalls or TJ Maxx!
Clean out your dance bag from last year. Wash the bag if it can be washed or get a new one if it is tattered. Spray it with fabric freshener or put a new air freshener inside. We sell adorable dance bags at the studio in lots of fun colors for all ages!
Inside your Dance Bag
Make sure you have all items necessary in your bag:
non-perishable nutritious snacks
a baggie or zipper bag with hair necessities including: hair ties, Bobby pins, hair net, small brush, small can of hair spray.
quarters for water at the studio.
Make sure you have a CLEAN water bottle. Water bottles hold a lot of germs so give it a good scrub. Pack extra money for days you may forget your water bottle at home and need to buy one from the studio.
Put your first initial and last name on EVERYTHING... shoes, attire, water bottles, etc. Please don't put just your initials as this makes it more difficult to find you.
