When it comes to designing dance clothes Dansez has always been seen as an innovator, with a passion for creating a true ‘second skin’ for dancers. From our own studio in Kent our wonderful and highly skilled team have been creating beautiful dance clothes for nearly 50 years.  A few years ago we made a big change to our business and decided to lead the dance world with a stronger environmental message that encouraged dancers to make a lifestyle choice when choosing their dance wear. We had to convince them to embrace our ‘planet friendly’ ethos and join us in our #wastetowear revolution that would take plastic and nylon waste and turn it into high performance and beautiful dance wear.

Working with world leaders in fabric and thread sustainability we have been able to show how it is possible to buy sustainably, place the future of the planet centre stage but still wear something that delivers confidence in performance. The feedback we have from dancers at all levels is that we achieved something very special, dance clothing with a conscience that still offers outstanding performance in movement. 

We are delighted that many of the UKs’ leading ballet schools and organisations have chosen Dansez and made the change towards sustainable dance clothes for their uniforms and recommended examination wear.
