Dance Attire

These guidelines provide for more ease of movement ensuring our dancers aren't held back in their executions, as well as helping the teacher to see what to correct in body alignment and technique. We encourage labeling at least a first name on dance attire & water bottles in hopes there are less lost items. We have a 'Lost Box' so if you missing anything, please inquire. 

Stores that you will find these items at include "The Dance Box" in Langley or Coquitlam or "Jazzmatazz" in Abbotsford or online.
