OUR STORY

CREATING

Created in 2013 by Tom Kilps, he is a former dancer of Texas Ballet Theater. Having a professional career in the ballet, he knows the types of garments his fellow artists need to execute their art in the studio and on stage.

ACHIEVING

An essential garment for a male dancer is the dance belt. We have been working hard to perfect the design and evolve it from the first model. The innovative result has created your favorite dance belt.

DEVELOPING

Male dancers have a very limited selection of dancewear today. We understand the need for quality in men’s dancewear. With an all-new design of the dance belt complete, we are currently moving forward with development of more product.

PROGRESSING

We will continue to strive for success and create apparel for performing artists. We will continuously work with performing artists to ensure satisfaction.
