At Sparkle & Shine we know the expense of starting children in a typical dance program. We pride ourselves on being flexible and open to many different ways of dress that are appropriate for your dancers personality and body type. Students will never be held back from partaking in classes if their attire is not up to snuff. We simply want safety to be of the utmost importance! Please remember this when reading your dancers class attire list below! Some classes do have required dress code items. We want to make the dancewear and shoe buying experience as easy & stress free for parents as possible!
