The Best Dance Costume Companies for Your Every Need!

Posted by Deb on Sep 15, 2016

Best Dance Costume Companies for Your Every Need!

Selecting the right costume is vital to a great performance. When your team looks great, they perform great! So where do you start?  With so many dance costumes to choose from, finding the right look can feel daunting! 

Don't stress though!  To help with the selection process, we’ve assembled a list of the top dancewear companies and categorized them by their specialties.  When narrowing down the list for your team, consider two key things to make the selection process easier:

  • Be clear about what you are looking for and why. Example:  If you have a team that has special sizing needs, select a company that offers custom fitting services.
  • Know the differences. No two dance costume companies are the same! Select companies that best meet your needs.

Read on for a list of over 25 tried and true dance costume companies to get you started!

All About Dance (AAD) is proud to be a part of Chicago's thriving dance community, and is a studio passionate about what they do. They focus on hard work, but above all they strive to create a warm and loving community for their dancers. They are a family, first and foremost. And we, at The Line Up, were honored to have the opportunity to work with them for the first time this year.

AAD came to us from Jen Kopka, the Company Director. Jen had worked with us before at her previous studio, and when she moved to AAD we were excited to hear she wanted to continue working with us! We asked her a few questions about her new studio and the costume process and loved what she had to say! Take a look:

Posted by Laura on Apr 30, 2013

DanceXchange studio in Edina, Minnesota sent us some great pictures from a competition this past weekend! They designed quite a few fun costumes for the 2013 season! For their production number, they had a tribal theme and selected three online styles but used the same fabrics and custom changes to coordinate all together. They selected the Suki, Shadow, and Leandra Solid, and also ordered some custom boy's tops. They also had a smaller group that did a Circus routine, and selected our online Ringmaster jacket and 580 shorts with custom fabric and changes. They had two solos as well. The first was the online Hadley, and the second was one of our new tryout tops and 580 shorts and they added their own bustle onto the back of the shorts.
