Students should have a dance bag for shoes and belongings. Label all shoes and attire with first and last names.
Locally, dance shoes are available at Aptos Shoes and Apparel in the Rancho Del Mar Center in Aptos, and Victoria’s Dancewear on Soquel Ave. in Santa Cruz. For other sources, please ask the office.
