In 2006, my mission in creating dance etc. was to build and foster a dynamic entirely sourced by the community we served – Dancers helping Dancers. I am proud to say, many years later, that we have stayed steadfast and true to that mission from day one. We have maintained incredible standards and encouraged a foundation of support and networking, for both our Staff and Clients. This vision has led to a wonderfully, woven set of relationships in our vast artistic community, of which we are humbled and honored to be a part…and for that, I am immensely grateful and proud.
Over the 14+ years you have shopped with dance etc., you have been helped by members of the local dance community that we have employed. You have also shopped and likely purchased products, created and produced by dancers, both locally and nationwide. These motivated, creative, and artistic individuals have been employed as Interns, Apprentices, Seasonal Associates, Sales Assistants, Fitters, and General Store Managers.
dance etc. Employees attend area performances, promote local arts events, advertise in your programs and serve as resources for customers with dance-related inquiries. We are current and retired professional dancers, teachers, directors, and choreographers. We currently take class, attend auditions, conduct auditions, wear the apparel that hangs in our shop and the shoes that line our shelves. Collectively we have backgrounds in ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, tap, gymnastics, theater, Pilates, and more. It is significant that this is true for all of our 4 current employees and another 3 who provide seasonal help when their schedule, school, or artistic pursuits allow.
While this is an unprecedented time for everyone, small business is no exception.
We must remain focused on the future and a time when we will all be dancing once again.
Please consider supporting small, supporting local, and supporting us…
We need you now more than ever…
