Links for Flying Irish Dancers
Read the information on the rest of this site, including the Parents' Handbook, to determine which items you need for classes, shows and competitions.
Dance basics for all dancers: shoes, socks, practice music, class attire.
Girls Reel Shoes (leather sole for beginners only; Intermediate/Combo dancers & up any other shoe)
Jig Shoes (Sound Blaster Tips required for Prizewinner - Champion dancers)
Poodle socks (ankle height for shows/competitions), sock glue, music CDs, accessories
Buy shoes from a dedicated Irish Dance shoe merchant (such as Rutherford) ONLY or you may be sold shoes that do not fit properly (and which will have to be replaced with ones that fit prior to performances & competitions).
