Hip Hop shoes: 
Dancers in recreational classes with Hip Hop and boys only classes with Hip Hop will be required to purchase Black High Top Converse shoes for recitals. The rims of the sole should be white, however the color of the bottom of the sole does not matter. Other brands may also work as long as they look the same as the Converse brand and do not include any additional colored detailing. These shoes will not be available through WDC.
Dancers will need to purchase them through local retail stores. They are often sold at Famous Footwear, Kohl’s and JC Penney as well as many online retailers. 

**Shoes will need to be purchased prior to picture week: March 27th – April 1st as dancers will need to wear shoes in pictures. Shoes should only be worn for pictures, dress rehearsals and recitals.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Looking for an easy way to style your dancer’s hair for recital and pictures? Try a hairpiece!
Put up hair in a bun, attach a 'curly hair' scrunchie or another available style and you are set! Just make sure the hair piece is secured with hair pins for the show. Lots of colors are available in the WDC Boutique.
