About Us
From Studio to Stage....
With the ever-growing popularity of competitive dance and cheer, along with the
influx of more studios offering a wider variety of classes, it has become
increasingly important for the traditional dance shop to keep up with the needs
of its more fashion conscious and savvy cliental.

Carrying a full line of standards, we also keep an eye on new trends in
costumes and accessories to insure customers have access to the best
selection that the area has to offer!  The dance community has been wonderful
about helping to spread the word.  We now offer a new line of performance
make-up and Swarovski crystals for customizing costumes!"   Many
accessories are available such as wigs, gloves, hats, boas, body glitter and
just about any other items you can think of for performing.  

Costumes for solos and groups can be ordered  with lots of styles and colors
to choose from.  Liturgical basics can also be ordered for small or large
church groups.  There is a great selection of in-stock merchandise to choose
from as well.  Our knowledgeable staff can help you find what you need and
outfit your dancers completely.  For cheerleading, we carry styles of Kaepa and
Power cheer shoes and the very popular Soffe shorts and pants.

Always on the lookout for new and unique dancewear, we have the latest styles
from such fashion forward companies as Frontline, Funky Diva, Trendy Trends,
 Sansha and Katrina to basics from SoDanca, Leos, Body Wrappers, Eurotard
and many more.  From traditional black leotards and pink tights to a line of
street inspired dancewear for the funky hip hop look, we can outfit your dancers
completely.  In addition, with the increasing popularity of ice skating, skate
tights and apparel is also available.

Little extras have helped make us the largest and most complete shop of its
kind in Wilmington!  Visit our information center for local studio information and
to find out all of the local happenings for dance, cheer, skate and theatrical
productions. Wherever your interests lie, everything you need to look and feel
your best from studio to stage can be found at Dance Exchange.  
Getting to know you....
Please stop by and introduce yourself to our staff.  Over the years, we and
the dance community have created a dance family within our store.  Some
customers just stop in to say hi, some just come and browse new items
and some just stop in to say they love our window displays that week.  We
want you to feel like part of the family when you're shopping with us.  We
appreciate your business and your friendship over the years.

Thank you Wilmington and the surrounding areas for your support since
