The free New Student Lesson is important so that we can help prepare the dancer for their first class.  Part of this is having the right attire and shoes.  As a mother of three, I know how those expenses can add up so we will assist you to get quality attire as inexpensively as possible.

Shoes.  We strongly recommend Sansha canvas ballet shoes.  The Evergreen School of Ballet maintains an inventory of Sansha shoes.

Leotards.  We have an onsite inventory.

Dance Tights.  We recommend convertible tights for women and girls and have an onsite inventory.

Hip Alignment Belts.  (Does not apply to Pre-Ballet, One Class Walk-in, or Stretch and Conditioning students).

Many vendors carry these or similar items.  However, we can order them for you, usually for less, so we can ensure your dancer has the correct size and will have a consistent look with their classmates.  If you prefer to order your own, we strongly recommend using DiscountDance.com.  Click here to access a list of items specially selected for the Evergreen School of Ballet.  Be sure to ask us for a discount coupon if you choose to order any items from Discount Dance and always add Teacher Code 122788 to your order to get all applicable discounts.  For optional items such as ballet skirts and tutus, we are happy to provide advice and can order these for you, generally for less than you will pay from other vendors.

You may place orders at the studio or by contacting us.  You will then receive an  invoice and may pay online or by writing a check payable to "THP Music Consultants LLC."
