SOME SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHERE TO PURCHASE DANCE SHOES AND DANCE WEAR:

CAPEZIO WELLESLEY
330 Washington Street
Wellesley Hills, MA 02481
(781) 237-5526

DANCER’S IMAGE
612 Washington Street

(617) 964-4070
They have everything you need for any dance form at Dancer’s Image including lots of gift ideas for your dancer! They have a very supportive and knowledgeable staff.  Pointe shoe fittings is their specialty.

REMEMBER – wherever you choose to purchase your dance shoes, you MUST try them on as dance shoes need to fit like a glove and the sizes will be different, in most cases, than your street shoes.  You should put students name on the inside of all dance shoes with permanent marker only AFTER I have checked for a proper fit.

BALLET STUDENTS:  The elastic for your ballet slippers must be sewn in the proper place.  Ask the sales person fitting your slippers to show you where that is.  If, for some reason, you forget or they do not know, WAIT FOR THE INSTRUCTOR TO SHOW YOU TO AVOID HAVING TO REDO THEM!
