It is important to children to dress the part when they are in dance classes.  Although there are many dance classes that allow freedom of choice in dance attire, we do recommend a range of dance wear to our students that suit their style of dancing.  Having the right style of shoes is also very important and can affect how your child will be able to move and perform.

Although the style of dance wear varies according to the different dance types, it is important that the garments are made with lightweight, breathable, stretchy fabrics which provide dancers with comfort and freedom of movement.

Children who wish to take exams in their chosen dance style will be required to wear the IDTA (International Dance Teacher's Association) dance clothing.

International Dance Store supplies Charlene Melling School of Dance with a range of clothing and shoes.

Our customer online store can be found at  We have made it easy for you by selecting our recommended products that are both affordable and suitable for our classes.  We also sell branded wear, such as hoodies, at the studio - just ask our team.
