Frequently Asked Questions

How long should I allow for my fitting? - If it is your first time being fitted for pointe shoes, and you’ve made an appointment—we like to plan for about an hour. We want your first shoe fitting to be a memorable, educational, and fun experience where we take the time to find the shoe that’s just right. If you’re a returning guest, 30 minutes is average. However, our part of our mission at the Dancewear Center is to make sure everyone finds the right fit for them—so we will take as long as necessary to get you in a pair of shoes you’re happy with! Please note that we are unable to take pointe shoe fittings later than 5:30pm.

What information do I need to have with me? - We always ask where you are currently dancing, and if your teacher has any specific requirements and/or preferences in regards to shoes or padding.

What if one foot is bigger than the other? - Most of us have one foot that is slightly bigger than the other; however, in some cases the difference is great enough that it requires 2 different sizes be worn. In this case, the dancer purchases 2 pairs—one in each size.
