We are celebrating 40 years of business by launching a competition for budding dancers and their dance schools to win a show stopping collection of dance wear worth up to £500.


Dance Gear Managing Director, Peter Turner, said: “Dance has always been our passion, and we have been very lucky to turn it into our profession. It seems only fitting that we celebrate our anniversary by profiling dance superstars and give one lucky school the opportunity to win a bespoke collection of costumes for their show.”


Dancers, parents and teachers can be in with a chance to win a made to order collection for their next show. Our very special prize will give one dance school the opportunity to put on a champion performance.


The Prize: Up to 25 dancers from the winning dance group will be invited to create their very own show costumes.


Dance Gear Dancewear comes in more than 70 designs, each in 10 sizes for children and adults and with over 90 exciting fabrics to choose from. Choose from Leotards and Catsuits, Jazz Pants and Crop Tops, Legging and Shorts, Tutus and Skirts and much more. With our Made to Order Costumes Menu our winners can choose to create a bespoke costume made in two different fabrics and colours or patterns. There is a choice of Nylon Lycra, Cotton Lycra, Shiny Metallic, Patterned or Velour and you can mix the fabric types too.
