Who We Are

Created in 2013 by Tom Kilps, former dancer at Texas Ballet Theater. Having a professional career in the ballet he knows the type of garments his fellow artists need to execute their art on stage and in the studio. He continues to consult with his peers to create the dancewear they desire.

What We Are Doing

An essential garment for a male dancer is the dance belt. We have been working hard to perfect the design and evolve it even more. The innovative result will be your favorite dance belt. We strive to provide a high level of quality and comfort for your dancing.

Why We Are Here

Male dancers have a very limited selection of  dancewear today. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of options. The current dancewear products for men are outdated. 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.

Stability & Longevity

We have big plans for the future. We will continue to strive for success and create apparel for performing artists. We will continuously work with performing artists to ensure satisfaction. Our aim is to be the frontrunner for men’s dancewear needs.
