At Not Just Another Dance Studio we believe that wearing appropriate dancewear sets the student up for success in their dance class. Appropriate dancewear also encourages discipline and focus while in class. Students are expected to come to class ready to dance. There is no specific colour or style required for our classes…half the fun for students is deciding what outfit to wear to dance class each week and suits your child’s style! Any style/brand of dance shoes are acceptable. NOTE: Outdoor shoes are NOT permitted in the studio.
We sell Dancewear and Dance Shoes! Effective September 2021 we will be selling dancewear and shoes to make it easier for our Dance Families. Orders can be placed online.

- Heels – Whatever makes the dancer feel like their BEST SELF. Body suit and fishnets, leggings and a crop top, booty shorts and a t-shirt-from athletic to sexy, anything that makes you feel good about you. Shoes that have ankle support, (having a strap or something around the ankle for safety) and open toe is generally easier (but that’s a personal choice as well).
