Please note that when preparing for examinations, Grade 1 and above, girls will need RAD regulation leotard with belt, character skirt and both boys and girls will need character shoes.
All uniform items except the Pre--School/Pre-Primary tutu are available to purchase, online at https://fla.mydancestore.co.uk
Alternatively, I keep many items in stock just text or email your requirements and if I have the item available, you can collect at your next class.
Ballet shoe sizes are very unpredictable so I keep ballet shoes in all sizes in stock for £10 per pair. To save disruption to class, ballet shoe fitting will take place by prior arrangement at my home or at the studio before a session starts or after it ends.
So long as students are appropriately attired we are not strict about uniform and there is no obligation to purchase via Flamingos Dance. Children feet grow very quickly so we operate an informal, ‘help yourself’ shoe exchange which is basically a collection of used shoes that you are welcome to take, borrow or exchange when your child has outgrown their old shoes. It would be appreciated if the shoe box is left tidy and organised and any shoe donations are clean (machine washed is fine) and paired up - one inside the other.
If character skirts and shoes are kept in good condition they will have 2nd hand value when they have been outgrown.
