In 2017, World Dance Apparel was founded after we realized there were not enough performance wear options that were affordable, stylish and would be able to stand out during a competition.
We have made it our goal to provide fashionable options WORLDWIDE!
Each item is hand selected; giving you a variety of options to chose from. Shoes, apparel, and performance costumes; we got it all!
Are you an instructor, Director, or influencer? Then we would love to partner with you! World Dance Apparel offers discounts and sponsorships to schools, teams, and influencers who are involved in performing arts. For more information, please send us a message by visiting the "Contact us" page.
CUSTOM MADE ORDERS:
Custom made orders will NOT be discussed by phone - please keep all details in one email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please read the information below. We will need the following information to provide an accurate price estimate.
- Are these item(s) for a professional production? If you are part of a performing group (i.e. Theater, Opera, Ballet, Salsa Team, Drag Queen Performance, Mardi Gras, Bachata Team or Singers, etc.), or are producing for film, TV or other media, please inform us of your production deadline, the number of actors/characters/individuals involved, and what your specific design/construction needs are including sketches, pictures, or any ideas you may have.
- What is your deadline? Please prepare for your performance/competition with PLENTY OF TIME (We suggest at least 1-2 months in advance, specially during holiday season). Lead times will vary depending on the complexity and quantity of items needed. Once we receive all relevant information we will be able to give you a time estimate.
- What type of garment do you need? Please be prepared to show photos, sketches or other details related to your custom order. Although we understand the need to get inspiration, we will not accept sketches, photos, or other items stolen from other designers. Our staff will ask that you modify the garment significantly so we respect the artistry done by those designers.
- Do you have a fabric preference? Fabric choices will vary according to the complexity of the costume and the look of the costume. Other factors to consider are durability and comfort, your climate, and whether the outfit will be worn indoors or outdoors.
- What is your height and size information? (i.e. height, chest, waist around the belly button line - not your pants waist size - and hip circumferences) This will help us estimate yardage requirements. Please note we need your actual body measurements, NOT store bought garment sizes obtained from the labels, i.e. pants, shirt or coat sizes.
- What is your budget range? We strive to offer handsome, durable, yet cost-effective goods and garments professionally made from the best quality materials available. Once we know your budget range, we can make suggestions for fabrics, stones, and design methods.
Once we review all details and agree on a design, we will send a measurement sheet for you to fill out and return back to us. We will send an invoice and once we receive FULL payment we will start production.
