Sizing Guide

Dancewear sizing can vary between manufacturers, brands and even within different clothing ranges for a particular brand. We make it easy!

We use our 30 years or experience fitting dancers to ensure that when you shop for dancewear on our site, you can buy the age and size of clothes that you would normally buy. For example, if you usually buy age 8 to 9 clothes then any of our age 8 to 9 clothes will fit, no matter who the manufacturer is.

Where you are not sure of the size you need you can view the Size Guide for each item of clothing.

For footwear, we have made recommended size adjustments against your normal UK shoe size. These can also be found on the Size Guide for each shoe.

The size guide for each product can be found by pressing the Size Guide button to the right of the product image.
