For all other classes, dancers purchase our wonderful JPSD uniform pieces, that can be mixed and matched for weekly classes.  If your child is taking an exam, be sure to purchase the required pieces as all students taking the exams need to be wearing the same items. Same too with shoes and stockings. Remember dance school at JSD are not street shoes therefore not worn to and from class. Carry dance shoes and change in the studios.
