The pictures on the top of this page show some of the beginner girls with their hair curled and some dancers in school costumes with wigs. This is the older wig style. Look at the Curl page for more info.
The Costume Page
Every dancer should have the appropriate shoes for their dance level. It is important to be used to shoes and have them broken in for each child's success. It is important that the ghillies have a snug fit.
Ghillies (soft shoes) and hard shoes are available through Sean Hastings and at feiseanna.
Second hand shoes are available much of the time. See Clare at the start of class if you are interested.
The procedure for ordering NEW school costumes is changing. Please talk to Clare and keep an eye on the site. Thanks.
Links to sites that sell second-hand solo dresses are at the bottom of this page.
Our school costume identifies us when we dance at a competition or in a performance.
Which costume is for you? Please click the link at the right for a description of each of the costuming levels.
The Skort Blouse combination is available through French Toast school uniforms. (no substitutions) Ordering information is further down on this page. To complete this costume each dancer needs: a headband (available through Elizabeth Lynch), a scrunchie, poodle socks and the appropriate dance shoes.
Boys: For performances boys are wearing black slacks with a white button down shirt and a purple tie. For feiseanna you can wear black pants and a solid color shirt and tie with or without a vest.
Solo Costumes: These special costumes may be purchased when a dancer qualifies for Prizewinner competition. Read the Trends/Traditions piece for more information. All solo dresses need approval before purchase.
The McInerney Dancers will be wearing class uniforms. These will consist of school logo shorts, t-shirts, poodle socks (for girls) and appropriate dance shoes. A longer style of shorts will be added to the order form options with the next order so there will be a choice between those and the cheerleader shorts.
(They won't be the mesh because they were too long.)
