A One Of A Kind Experience
My daughter and I live in the outer banks of North Carolina. Our closest place to purchase pointe shoes is Virginia. After a few years of trying on many shoes and not being happy, my daughter decided she needed a change. We researched different stores in the Raleigh area, as grandparents live there. We found Dance Etc. The fitting made us feel like dance stars. She took her time and explained to my daughter proper shoes should look and feel. Needless to say this was worth the trip and we will be repeat customers. Thank you for a one of a kind experience.
Dance Etc. is the absolute BEST!!
Thank you Danea at DANCE ETC. for your expertise at Pointe Shoe Fitting! I have NEVER met a better fitter! If you live in the Triangle, Dance Etc. is the absolute BEST!!
I Sincerely Appreciate Having Someone I Can Trust
Thank you so much for your help with my students. I sincerely appreciate having someone I can trust with that first pair of shoes. Your support means a lot to me and you are our first choice for pointe shoe fittings and dancewear. Thanks again for all you do for me and City Ballet.
I came up about 6 weeks ago from Wilmington with my daughter, Emily for a Pointe Shoe Fitting. First off, I want to tell you that you are AMAZING!! We were so very impressed from the second we walked in your door. The time you spent and expertise and kindness you have is beyond anything I’ve ever encountered. Thank you so very much. I am so glad we found you and wish we had 4 years ago!
We Were Very Impressed
Thank you for your help today with Laura Anne. We were very impressed by your personal service.
The changes you made regarding Lauren’s pointe shoes are wonderful. Thank you so much for your help yesterday!
We feel so lucky to have you!
Madeline loves seeing you and would stop in every day if I let her. Thanks so much for supporting City Ballet, and on a personal note, thanks for supporting my girl. We feel so lucky to have you!
We love Dance Etc.
We love Dance Etc. for all of our ballet, tap and jazz shoes, ballet leotards and tights and accessories! Thank you for always keeping us outfitted to do what we love!
You are a gift.
Danea – Thank you so much for your patience, extension of knowledge and kindness. You made my girls first pointe experience memorable. I have never in all my years of teaching had the level of trust with someone else fitting my girls the way that I had in you. You are a gift. Thanks again.
Hi Danea, We appreciate your support very much. And our family always loves the care we get at your store. Thank you.
A Joy to Work with and a Breath of Fresh Air
Thank you for this kind email!!! You were a joy to work with and a breath of fresh air to fit my girls. It has been a struggle to find someone as knowledgeable as you! I plan to send all of them to you from now on.
Thanks again to you and your team for being so organized, well prepared, and making the fitting run so smoothly!
I really think very highly of you and your business. You have always been very supportive of my school and dance company.
Kind and Helpful
I shopped at your establishment on November 16th, 2013. I don’t know the names of the two young ladies who were working that morning, but they were very kind and helpful. I just wanted to say thanks. They both deserve recognition for their customer service and kindness. Because of them I will recommend and return to this establishment.
Danea has been a tremendous asset to our dance program. She has made the costume ordering process extremely simple and stress free. We love that when the costumes arrive, each child’s costume is individually bagged with their original order form. Our staff loves working with Danea!
Thank you so much for helping us and going the extra mile!! We really appreciate you!
I just want to thank you so much for all that you have done for me and I thought you would like to know that I have not experienced any pain in my toe during or after pointe class since being in my new pointe shoes!
We really appreciate you!
Thank you again for your assistance with my daughter’s audition attire earlier this evening. Please… know that we really appreciate you!
So helpful and kind!!
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all the time and effort your put in to me and my shoes. =) Having to fit me 3 times plus having my teacher come in, and all just to keep the same ones. I know that was a lot on your part. So, thank you so much for all that you did. You were so helpful and kind!! I really like these and hope that they work well and I can stay in this style. Thanks again and have a great rest of the week!!
Incredibly Friendly, Helpful and Knowledgeable on all things Dancewear!
The most comprehensive fitting I had ever seen…
The treatment and kindness that Danea showed my child was priceless.
The fall of 2015 was the beginning of my child’s 2nd year on pointe. My child loves ballet and has been taking lessons since she was 3 years old. She was having some trouble and a classmate suggested we come to Dance Etc. I was skeptical to drive 2 hours for my daughter to get a pointe shoe fitting. I am beyond thrilled that we took the trip! My child was struggling in the second semester on Pointe. I had no idea that her Pointe shoes were “dead” and not the proper shoe for her. Having not been a ballet dancer I was ignorant to all the particulars. The treatment and kindness that Danea showed my child was priceless. The care that was taken to fit her was extremely professional. Instantly, my child could do all the things she struggled to perform in the spring recital. Not only did Danea help my child get amazing pointe shoes, but also gave her renewed self confidence and sheer joy. I will continue to bring my child to Dance Etc as long as she is dancing on Pointe.
Daughter left very happy!
We had a great experience! Staff was very polite and knowledgeable. A very big selection of dance attire. Daughter left very happy!
