We carry dance shoes by Capezio and So Danca -- ballet slippers, jazz, ballroom, jazz sneakers, tap, and character, in sizes from toddler to adult.
For the character shoes, we stock a range of heel heights, and T-straps as well as the traditional style.
As our dance section grows, we plan to order additional brands such as Bloch to serve local dancers and their students. Group shoe fittings are available by appointment, and we are happy to do special orders.
American Backstage Company has a broad selection of dance tights (sizes up to 4X), skating tights, standard leotards, and tutus, in many sizes and colors. We also carry many dance accessories. If there are specific types of dance shoes and apparel you would like us to carry, please let us know.
Dancers might also be interested in our theatrical makeup (Ben Nye, Kryolan and Mehron brands). If allergies are a concern, please ask for advice about which brand would be better for your skin.
Come to American Backstage for knowledgeable help with dance products, and a proper fitting -- essential for dance shoes. The size and fit do not necessary correlate from one style shoe to another. Also, it is a mistake to select children's dance shoes with "room to grow in." If a shoe doesn't fit properly it can cause injuries from slips and falls.
We have even more great shoes and boots as part of our costume collection (see left).
