Sizing guidance

Please seek advice from your dance teacher or the experts at The Dance Spot, Chippenham.

This link is for reference only: Size guide for dancewear.

Shoes

Ballet shoes

Ballet shoes should fit (almost exactly) with the toes flat and to the end of the shoe. The shoe will mould to the foot as they are worn. Elastics need to fit snuggly over the instep so please re-sew if they are baggy.

Tap shoes

Tap shoes should fit well, so the shoe shouldn’t have more than 1cm growing room. This enables the dancer to make a good, strong sound with the toe tap.

Character shoes

Low-heeled style must be worn for grades 1 & 2.
Cuban heel height is for grades 3+

Fit is similar to ordinary shoes and must fit securely.

Pointe shoes

Must be fitted by a professional. Please contact The Dance Spot, Chippenham to book an appointment.


Approved hairstyles for dance classes

Ballet

Ballet hairstyles

Long hair should be in a tidy bun for ballet.

Shorter hair must be clipped away from the eyes or held back with a band.

Tap, Modern, Contemporary

Tap, Modern, Contemporary hair

Hair should be secured up for Tap & Modern. For Contemporary, we recommend a low/flat hairstyle so floor work is not restricted.
