Shoes and Boots
Ballet Folklorico Fuego de Phoenix requires folklórico style shoes for all students. Boots must be purchased within the first month of attending class. Folklórico shoes and boots have small nails on the bottom of the heel and toe tip, with rubber grip soles. Do not purchase flamenco shoes as the tall heel for this style of shoe can negatively affect young dancers’ ability to perform simple steps. 

Practice Skirts
Ballet Folklorico Fuego de Phoenix girls must wear a practice skirt to ensure they can learn the basics of folklórico skirtwork.  Skirts must be Doble vuelo (2) circle skirt and solid colored.

  1. If you are hand making your skirt, please see your child's instructor for specifications.


Performance Makeup
Female students ages 10 and up are required to wear makeup at performances. Please be sure to check with your students’ instructor before purchasing any makeup for a performance.
