Inventory Check: Dance Teacher Dancewear

Stylish yet professional: the latest apparel and shoes to stock with teachers in mind

For a dance retailer, what more important group is there than dance teachers to keep as happy, loyal customers? Not only will they buy for themselves, but they can influence generation after generation of new students to purchase their dancewear at your store—a pipeline of potential customers for life.

The unique demands of a dance teacher’s calling—long hours requiring super-comfy duds, different styles of classes scheduled back-to-back; the list goes on—in turn demand thoughtfully designed clothing, shoes and accessories. Here is our current crop of favorites. Let’s hope the repertoire only expands from here.
