So today I sent an email out with the following...
All children should have either Jazz shoes or Ballet
Slippers. Children’s sizes of these can
be found at Payless Shoes and larger sizes can be found at the Dance supply
stores here in the Our Area. Because
dancing shoes are not sized the same as street shoes I would advise trying these
on in person before purchase.
All girls are asked to wear either a white or light colored
camisole or tank top with form fitting (non-denim) shorts. This is to be worn under all costumes to facilitate
costume changes with modesty in the dressing rooms. With the exception of a few girls (noted
below for your child) girls will be able to wear whatever stockings or socks
they are most comfortable with.
~~~~~~~~~~~~I hear back...
I am a little confused you asked that all children should have
either jazz shoes or ballet slippers. Then in the last paragraph you
said girls will be able to wear whatever stockings or socks. Can the
girls wear either ballet slippers or socks? Can you please clarify?
~~~~~~~~~I write back...
or shoes they can wear either Jazz shoes or ballet slippers... for leg
wear they can wear stockings, tights or socks. They do NOT want to wear
socks without shoes on the stage as it is just painted plywood and
prone to ripping up clothing.
I'm still curious to know what in the first email suggested that the girls could wear just socks??? I would like to hear your thoughts cuz I need to hear something different.
