LA Dance

LA Dance Uniform

LA Dance has great uniforms which help both the students and teachers get the most out of dance classes. Uniforms are useful so that teachers can see how the dancer’s body is aligned and help to develop the dancer’s technique. The jazz uniform is unique to our dance school while the ballet uniform is in line with the BBO requirements.

LA Dance sells almost all the required items through our shop. If you have any questions about the uniforms or fittings please don’t hesitate to ask your teacher.

Second-hand uniforms are available in Kelburn, we have an honesty system where you can often find a great deal.

Shoes

Shoes can be ordered through our store anytime. At the beginning of each year, we do a callout so we can get a discount for a bulk order. Feel free to try the second hand-box first. If you are thinking of buying second-hand shoes on Trademe please check with us first as there are many different styles and we are quite specific on the style required for our syllabus.

Jazz

All jazz levels students require black split sole, slip-on jazz shoes. Please order these through the shop.

Tap

All tap students need tap shoes – open shoes for junior students, and closed shoes for seniors.

Contemporary

No shoes are required, just foot undies.

Ballet

Ballet shoes have to fit and should not have growing room. Pre-Syllabus, Pre-Primary, Primary, Grade 1 and Grade 2 students wear elastic across the shoe, whilst the higher grades need to have ribbons. It’s best to get fitted for a pair of ballet shoes – a good place to buy them is Gubbs on Wakefield St.
