Dress Code

Welcome to another exciting dance season! We look forward to once again seeing our returning students and, of course, meeting all of our new dancers. Your dress code items can be purchased in our shop at our River Oaks studio or online.  Although most orders arrive within 7-10 days, please allow enough time to receive your order before the start of classes. It is best to come into the studio so we can fit your dancer for the appropriate size ballet shoes and leotard.

If ordering online from Corps Dancewear, use coupon code KD_RIVEROAKS (case sensitive) to receive a discount. Leotards ordered online will not have our logo printed in case an exchange is needed.

Important Notes

Please do not purchase shoes from Amazon, Academy, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.  They are typically not leather and don’t fit properly or comfortably.

Please label all items – especially shoes so if they are left behind we can get them back to the right student.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
