Northamptonshire School of Dance Uniform

We are on hand to provide the correct uniform required for each dance discipline as the correct attire must be worn for every class>.

We recommend that dance shoes are ordered through Northamptonshire School of Dance to ensure quality and teachers will check fittings. Pointe shoes should be professionally fitted and we arrange for expert fitters from A Dancer's World in Northampton to visit our school periodically to fit new shoes.
