Shoes and Socks
Girl’s wear Irish dance shoes called “ghillies” and Irish dance socks called “poodle socks”. Boy’s wear reel shoes, and both girls and boys eventually wear “Jig shoes” or “hard shoes” once they’ve reached a certain level. All shoes and socks can be ordered directly through the Sheeaun Academy. If you need shoes, please talk to your teacher at your first class, they will check our inventory and let you know how to go about ordering if we don’t have your size.
The SAID store opens for orders periodically throughout the year. All registered families will receive an e-mail each time it opens, and your orders will be distributed at class approximately two weeks from when the store closes.
*The SAID practice uniform is required for all dancers:
Girls: skort or compression short, tank top (black or white) or t-shirt (fitted or unisex)
Boys: reversible mesh gym short and t-shirt or tank
