“We’re excited to offer Mequon and North Shore dancers, gymnasts and cheer teams the largest selection of dance apparel and accessories in the Midwest,” said Anna Zuckerman, the owner.

“We’ve selected our brands based on research we gleaned from local dance and gymnast instructors,” she added.

Zuckerman also has taken the lead on designing a new line of clothing for kids, teens and young adults. Designed in Wisconsin and made in the United States, the line includes dresses, skirts, tops, leggings and accessories.

The store is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday; 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.
