Please read FULLY for some very important information

WOW! We are super excited about starting the school year dance season at your child’s school!. We absolutely love being part of your children’s lives each week and truly love watching them grow and learn. Tippi Toes will have some opportunities throughout the year for you to come and watch your child shine! Tippi Toes generally follows the calendar of the school system where your child’s classes are being held (Hoover, Shelby County, etc…) along with its cancellations (weather/holidays). We would love to keep you in the loop about all our events and great things that are happening with your child in class. Email is our number one means of communication. Please be sure that your email in our system is correct and you check it regularly for our important emails! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email us!

What to wear?
For classes at one of our school partners, Tippi Toes Dance Company® encourages each dancer to wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move around in. For public classes (BTJ, or Tippi Pro) we ask our dancers to wear leotards and tights.  Starting August 2021 ballet slippers are REQUIRED for all dancers. Please write your child’s name in the inside of all shoes. For classes at school locations, somebody will be there to help your child slip out of their school shoes and into their dance shoes, if necessary. No tap shoes are needed. We stick to the soft-soled shoes since each location is graciously allowing us to use their facilities — we don’t want to scuff their floors.

Ballet Shoes for Class
Ballet shoes are REQUIRED for all dancers Pink ones for girls and black ones for boys. Just buy them in our online store! Easy peasy! And sizing is a breeze! The ballet slippers we offer are so great because they are specifically made for children and sized just like your child’s regular school shoes! AND…. no ties that they have to fool with or worry about coming untied in class. To order just go to our online store in your parent portal! If your child already has ballet shoes, those will be just fine!
