Hip Hop shoes: Dancers in recreational classes with Hip Hop and boys only classes with Hip Hop will be required to purchase black hi top converse shoes with white soles for recitals. 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: April 2nd – 7th, 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!
