5. How long should these items fit my child? It is impossible to be exact with this question. Every product page has a recommended purchase size. These recommendations are based on our 17+ years experience in fitting dancewear. Please follow our recommendations and you will obtain the maximum time in these items based on how fast your child grows over the next few months.

6. How do I know which size shoe to purchase? On the home page and every product page, we have listed a link to our fitting chart page. Once you have measured you child using the provided chart, every product page tells you what size to purchase based on the child’s measured foot size. Some of these styles fit exactly to size, other styles you will purchase either 1/2 size larger or 1 whole size larger than your measured child’s foot size. These fitting guidelines are based on how we fit in our Richmond, Virginia store everyday. Also, if you need our assistance, you can fax an outline of your child’s foot on our fitting chart to Conatct Us. On the fax include your name, telephone number and email address, plus the name and item number of the shoe your wish to purchase. We will then email you the size to order.

7. What if a particular item I’ve order is no longer available? We will make the best effort to find a suitable replacement. Many styles of products change names and colors from year to year. If a specific product you ordered has been replaced with a different stock number and name, we reserve the right to ship you the replacement style if the item you ordered is no longer available.
