About Us

In 2004 The Dance Shop opened its doors in a tiny corner of Embroidery…Just For You!, inside the Logan Valley Mall in Altoona, PA.  With a few employees and just a small assortment of shoes, tights and dancewear, we outgrew that corner almost overnight. 

Today The Dance Shop services dancers, twirlers, gymnasts, cheerleaders and skaters from all over Pennsylvania and surrounding states.  

We have what you need!  Our 3200 square foot store at 3614 Sixth Avenue, Altoona, PA is extensively stocked for dancers of all ages and levels: toddler to senior, beginner to advanced. The Dance Shop was recently named one of Capezio's top 200 retailers nationwide and is the area's only authorized Capezio dealer.

At The Dance Shop our first concern is helping find the perfect fit.  We do not work on commission and we strive to make customer satisfaction our top priority.
