During the busiest time of the year (August-September) at Footlights, we anticipate wait times to exceed three hours for in person shopping on Saturdays. Weekday evening wait-times are anticipated to reach an hour to two hour wait times.
To help reduce this wait time, here are a few things you can do.
1) Shop during the week; the best time to arrive is mid-day, before 2p. No matter what, come prepared to wait for assistance and stay calm.
2) Know exactly what you need. If your studio has uniform requirements, you need to have that information for yourself. To get your uniform information, please contact the studio. Be prepared to know what you're looking for and reach out in advance with any questions you may have.
3) Where able, please leave the kids and adults who don't need assistance at Footlights, at home. Due to capacity restrictions, we will have lines outside for waiting to be allowed in. Trimming down the entourage gives other dancers & parents the chance to shop around and move the line along quicker.
4) Don't really need a fitting? Shop our online boutique instead. See more of why Online below.
