Get help from people who know

When we first created Allegro we set out to create a company that was specifically run by and staffed "By Dancers" who would provide the best care "For Dancers".  Over the years we have stayed true to this vision and therefore have stayed in tune with the latest needs of the dance community.

We share your passion too

Since our start in 2007, we have employed over 100 members of the local dance community. Allegro employees attend area performances, promote local arts events and serve as resources for customers with dance-related inquiries. We are professional dancers, teachers, directors, and choreographers. We currently take class, attend auditions and wear the apparel that hangs in our shop. Collectively we have backgrounds in ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, tap, gymnastics, theater, yoga, Pilates, Zumba, massage, and more.
