This year, in order to make sure everyone is fully prepared for recital, we are checking shoes in class and communicating with parents that may need to purchase or borrow a new pair or clean up their current shoes. It is important to reiterate that details matter for a stage ready look. When checking shoes, take the following into consideration:

  1. Correct Style
  2. Correct Color
  3. Proper Fit
  4. Condition of Shoes

If parents require redirection, make sure you give them plenty of time to properly replace shoes. Last minute notices may create unnecessary tension or frustration. When you approach it collaboratively, it will usually yield the most successful results!
