Dance Shop FAQs
Q: The Dance Shop is a small, independent retailer, so does that mean your prices are more than online retailers or department stores?
A: No. Just because we are a smaller store does not mean that we charge you more for your dancewear. In many cases, our prices are lower (especially when factoring in shipping expenses!). At our Dance Shop, you know you’ll receive great, personal service – and dancewear and shoes truly made to last and support your dancer.
Q: Don’t they sell dance shoes at Wal-Mart, Target, and Payless?
A: They do… well kind of. These stores usually carry a small selection of “dance shoes” and leotards during the back to school season. These shoes are not made by dance manufacturers and are not made of quality materials. In many cases they have cardboard soles! Believe me, I love shopping at Target just as much as anyone – but their dance shoes are poorly constructed and not built to last and support a dancer’s feet. Our ballet and tap shoes for young dancers are priced within a few dollars of these shoes, and will last twice as long.
