FVAD second-hand dance-wear
We sell second-hand dance-wear on consignment at the Academy. We always do our best to keep the cost of dance training as low as possible, and to reduce waste wherever we can. Any of our dress code leotards and some shoes, plus all outer wear that we sell (hoodies, shorts, skirts, leg warmers, sweater wraps, etc) can be brought in to the office for re-sale. For hygiene reasons, we do not resell tights.
Once the item sells, it is put on the family’s account minus a small mark-up. Cheques are mailed out each term for any families no longer with us.
For ballet slippers and toe pads, which have less of a resale life, we simply maintain a swap-box of used shoes. Just swap your old pair for another set that fits. The swap-box is also very handy when students forget their ballet slippers – as they will inevitably do!
There are so many benefits to organizing these second-hand items for sale, and we’re pleased to facilitate the process for everyone. You just have to remember to bring in your old items for resale – we’ll do the rest!
