Footwear Return Policy:

Ballet/Jazz Shoes/ Dance Shoes: Make sure your feet are clean and dry before putting them into the new shoe. Imprints will be left on the inside if tight or your feet are damp. We suggest you lay down a towel before trying them on. Shoes soil easily and the satin on the pointe shoes become scratched and marred easily.

Taps/Sneakers: Please try shoes on a carpeted floor only. The taps scratch easily and would therefore be non-returnable.

Please do not wear any shoes for class outdoors, or for any length of time if you plan to return them.

Footwear can only be exchanged for store credit if it is returned in its original packaging and having all tags intact. We will not issue Return Merchandise Authorizations for footwear items that show any signs of wear.
