ILLUSION DANCE ARTS
CLASS UNIFORM GUIDE 2022-2023

We discovered on June 28, 2022, that our usual supplier for dance clothing, Johnny Brown, has closed their business. 

We will now be using Twiggz at Mic Mall Mall in Dartmouth, as our main supplier to ensure each dancer has the correct style of dancewear for the fall.
