Dancewear and Shoes

The dancewear shown above is available by special order. It is offered for convenience, and is not a required purchase.

WDA always make an effort to keep tights on hand for immediate purchase

NOTE: WDA will not place customer orders for shoes or attire without payment up front.

Requirements for ALL students

Hair Pulled back off of neck and away from face either in a bun*, ponytail or braid

Jewelry is not permitted in any class, except stud earrings. Leave necklaces, rings and bracelets and wristwatches at home.

NO Gum allowed in any dance room.

NO baggy clothing such as sweat pants, shorts or t-shirts.

The instructors need to see the dancer’s body in order to make proper corrections.

Students may be asked to sit and watch class if they are not dressed appropriately.

NEVER wear your dance shoes outside at any time. They will wear out fast and also track dirt in from outside, damaging the dance floors. Bring all appropriate shoes with you to class in a tote bag or backpack.

Be sure to put your name inside all shoes. Our Lost & Found bin fills up quickly because shoes are not labeled.

Girls, you are welcome to store your belongings in any locker located in the ladies restrooms on either level, however, locks are not permitted and Waterford Dance Academy is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
