What to Wear to Dance Class

Class Attire:

You may purchase all items you will need for class on our page on this site: The Shop at DDC

For Summer & 6 Week Workshops, your dancer may go bare foot or wear shoes you may already have- since the class is a smaller time commitment (and you may be trying it for the first time), the shoe color & style requirements are reserved for our school year recital program.

School Year Program (with Recital Performance): Please purchase all of your shoe needs through DDC, using The Shop at DDC here on our website. Please feel free to call us (854-2221) for fitting assistance.

Adults- please wear what you may already own and are comfortable dancing in
