Dress Code

Turning Pointe Dance Studio sells quality dancewear and shoes at an affordable price. We custom-fit your dancer for the size they need and keep most items in stock.

 

Shop Online through our Online Dancewear Store and have your items sent directly to the studio with your dancer's name on it and ready for pick up the following week!

 

Proper dress for dance class is extremely important as teachers need to be able to see a dancer's body in order to give corrections on placement and alignment.
