Where can I buy the required shoes?

We also highly recommend Bloch shoes and tights as this is the brand we use when recital time comes around. There is a link below to Bloch’s website where you will see our shoe requirements as well as an option to purchase directly through them.
If you prefer to purchase your shoes in a store, we recommend Dance Line located in Paoli, or Motions located in Drexel Hill.
