Dear Students and Parents,

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:

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.

Online: 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. 

Dress Code Required Items:

Little Leapers Mommy & Me Class:Comfortable play clothes, bare feet.

Toddler & Pre-Ballet Classes:Pink tights, pink skirted leotard, pink ballet shoes.  This is all classes EXCEPT Tuesday 4:00 HCC, Wednesday 3:45 SJD, Thursday 3:45 SJD, Thursday 3:15 ROBS.

Costumes & Dancewear at 1503 Dunlavy is our preferred vendor. We recommend you visit the store so they can properly fit your child for ballet shoes.  Please do not purchase shoes from Target, Wal-Mart, etc.  They are typically not leather and don’t fit properly.  If you can’t get to the store, you can order online through my website:

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

These are required items.  Additional items you may want to purchase are: dance bag, ballet sweater, extra tights.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Let’s Dance!
