Shoe Painting Tutorial
Written by Erin Sforza on May 15, 2018

It’s shoe painting time here at DC, and for all of our first-time recital families (or at least our first time painters!) we’ve put together a quick video on how easy it is to paint your dancer’s shoes for recital. A few things to remember:

  • It’s best to paint your dancer’s shoes after their last class but before Dress Rehearsal.
  • Hold on to the leftover paint and your brush for touch ups between Dress Rehearsal and Recital.
  • Don’t use too much paint. A thin coat that covers the shoe works just fine, and it can delay drying time which will make it take longer to get that all important second coat on.

If you have any questions feel free to give the studio a call or stop by the reception desk and we will be happy to help. Happy painting everyone!
