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.

You have two options for purchasing your dancewear:

Shop In Person

You can get everything you need for ballet class at Costumes & Dancewear, 1503 Dunlavy, Houston.  They have a package specific to our dress code including tights, leotard and ballet shoes.

Order Online

You can purchase dancewear at River Oaks Dance Online Store.  Kindly note that although most orders arrive within 7-10 days, please allow enough time to receive your order before the start of classes.

Important Notes
