We hope everyone had a happy and fun holiday break and, like Raw Dancewear, you are
looking forward to 2013.
Although there are so many activities available for our children to do, it is gratifying
to see that there seems to be a upsurge of girls and boys enrolling in dance
classes this year. The confidence and co-ordination that is
developed when a child learns to dance is something they can carry with them
all the lives. Because of the wide range of dance genres – ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop (the list goes on and on), a child can take their choice of what suits them best.
If you need to purchase or replace any worn out shoes and tights please contact us at Raw
Dancewear and we will help you with anything you may need.

Check out a fantastic hip hop routine. A truly brilliant dance routine.
Here at Raw Dancewear, we only sell top quality dance shoes and dancewear, all at an affordable price. However, when shopping for dance products, you might be tempted to purchase those which are of an inferior quality, especially if they are available at an even lower price. Here are just a few reasons why quality really should be a priority when making an investment in dancewear.
Firstly, it is important to be aware that the quality of dancewear, particularly dance shoes, can actually have an impact on the dancer’s performance. This can be especially important whilst being taught as a dancer, and continuously learning new moves and steps. Imagine trying to cook a meal in a faulty oven, or trying to play Cheekybingo on a defective computer? You would be unlikely to get the best results, and this would surely prove frustrating. The same can be said for dancers who are trying to learn new steps and routines with low-quality dancewear.
In addition, dancewear which is of a lower quality tends not to be a cost-effective investment. Such items are far more likely to fall apart more quickly – so you may find yourself buying three of four pairs of shoes, when you may have only needed one or two pairs in a higher quality. Although it might seem like you are saving money in the short-term, you may actually end up spending far more than you had expected.
Lastly, it is worth considering that top quality dancewear is much more likely to be of a professional standard. If your child has dreams of becoming a professional dancer, then having access to dancewear of this standard can be hugely beneficial. These are just a few of the reasons why it can be advisable to invest in dancewear which is of a good quality, even from a young age.
When you decide that you want to learn to dance, find a dance studio that specialises in the type and form of dancing that you are most interested in. ‘Classical ballet’ is the most formal of the ballet styles; it adheres to traditional ballet technique. There are variations relating to area of origin, such as Russian ballet, French ballet, and Italian ballet.
Other types of dance that may interest the student include: Modern, Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop or a combinational type, known as “Broadway”. Be aware that “Jazz” and “Hip Hop” may incorporate sexual movements (ie hip thrusts and suggestive shoulder shakes and rolls) that may be inappropriate for young children. Ask the studio about age appropriate movements or restrictions they impose.
Next, check out the qualifications of the teachers. Many excellent dancers to not make good teachers. Your teacher should not only be a great dancer, but be able to instruct people with different body-types, abilities, and learning styles. A teacher with an impressive dance resume may not know how to describe movement for children or beginners. Ask if you can sit and watch for a while, but do not be upset if visitors are not allowed as they can disrupt class. Some studios offer ‘open classes’ designed to give future students a feel for the rigor of the instruction. Teachers should give positive reinforcements to students and be able to point out muscle alignments to improve technique. It is normal for schools to use older students to demonstrate to help train the younger ones.
Note that very young children (under 5 or 6) cannot follow the strict nature of Ballet class, so often they are often enrolled in “Baby Ballet” classes. These are designed to introduce the child to learning to following instructions, sit and stand quietly, leaving other students alone and listening to the music. Above all, introductory classes should be fun for the very young child.
THE STEPS IN ASSISTING YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT DANCE STUDIO
1) Think about what you are looking for in your dance studio. Are you training to be a professional dancer? Are you trying to lose weight? Are you dancing for fun? It is important that if you are serious about dance that you don’t get stuck in recreation oriented classes. At the same time, joining a difficult class if that isn’t what you want can lessen your enjoyment.
2) Talk to local dancers you know. See what they have to say about the dance studios. Dancers have usually attended more than one dance studio in their lives, if they’ve been dancing since they were young, and they will probably have a suggestion. They will know who to avoid, too.
3) Make a decision on how far you are willing to commute. Do you want to be able to walk there? Is driving for 30 minutes going to be okay?
4) Call the studio. Depending on your goals (weight loss, fun, improvement…) you may not be willing to alter your schedule a lot to include classes. Be sure you explain to the owner of the studio when you could take class, as well as your skill level. He or she will probably have a schedule, but the names of the classes can be confusing. Sometimes intermediate classes are classified as advanced, just to separate them from an even more intermediate class.
5) Narrow down your list by class times and varieties, go to the studios still on your list to watch a class. Usually, you can participate in a class without paying if you ask. Don’t be put off by the exterior of dance studios. Usually, the outsides are really, really trashy, but often the inside will be brightly painted and welcoming.
6) Find out the class size. If you want individual attention, don’t go to a school with 15-20 dancers. If you don’t want a lot of attention, and enjoy being part of a group environment, go to one with 15+ dancers.
7) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY – Choose your favorite!

Are you finding it hard to work out the best size shoe to buy for you or your little dancer?
At Raw Dancewear we have developed a new dance shoe sizing chart which makes it easier to identify which is the best shoe size to buy.
This printable shoe sizing chart has a metric (cm) ruller down the edge of the page, combined with the correlating dance shoe sizing increments.
That way you know your foot lenght and the appropriate dance shoe size equivalent. When purchasing online with Raw Dancewear all our dance shoe products display both the metric (cm) measurement and the correlating dance shoe sizing to make it easy to identify the right shoe size.
Very soon our printable dance shoe sizing chart will be downloadable via our website. On our front page (HOME) and in our online shop (SHOP). In the mean time feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to email you the printable pdf of the shoe sizing chart for you to use at home.
This chart is a great way to size your foot prior to buying any dance shoes online.
Having worked in the performing arts industry now for over 20 years I have seen time and time again the problems associated with dancers using old, tired or worn out dance shoes.
This poses the question, ‘WHEN SHOULD I BUY NEW DANCE SHOES?’
There are a number of factors to consider when posing this question.
How much longer to I intend to dance?
Will this pair of shoes get me through to the end of the year?
Are these worn out shoes causing me pain or discomfort?
and importantly Do I have the money to replace these shoes?
Obviously finances is a factor when considering any new purchase. But if you are in the process of considering buying new shoes due to older ones wearing out consider the following commentary.
• Dance shoes that are worn out and tired to not supply the same structural foot support that a newer pair of shoes deliver
• Dance shoes that are worn out do not supply the same cusioning that a newer pair of shoes deliver
• Generally the sole grip on new shoes is better than those on older worn out Dance shoes
• Dance shoes that are old and too small can impinge on the free growing of a child’s foot
• Dance shoes with holes and worn out toes have decreased shoe stability
If any of the above comments are consistent with your situation, you MAY be a candidate for buying new dance shoes.
Feel free to call us here at Raw Dancewear and we can discuss with you, your dance shoe situation. We will help you find the right dance shoe, that fits and is suitable to your needs.
Call us or email us: 02 90069200 or email@example.com

As we all know some shoes, dependant on manufacturer size differently. Here at Raw Dancewear we have a dance shoe sizing chart which shows both centimetres and the US shoe size conversion for each shoe.
