"I've been going to the Dance Shoppe since I was a kid, and now my daughter gets ALL of her dance supplies there. They are always extremely knowledgeable and helpful!"

"There's a reason this store is crowded...this is the ONLY place anyone in KS or MO should be fitted for pointe shoes!!!! I'm so jealous that this store is up north because I drive 45 min. now because whether my kid needs pointe shoes or not, this is the only place I spend my dance dollars in! They have a beautiful selection of leotards and practice wear and the best dance shoe selection in MO or KS! Susan and her husband are lovely and knowledgeable and they have great sales!!! One time my daughters pointe shoes died right before an audition and Susan spent an HOUR rebuilding her shoes...literally ripping out the lining, replacing all the nails, and jet gluing so she could get through her audition, AND she didn't charge us a dime!. You can't put a price tag on people that truly care about their customers. My daughter now attends Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan (Susan's magic on her pointe shoes worked!) and when she needs something, I send Susan an e-mail and she ships directly to her, and always includes little "extras" like a care package, they make her feel so special!!! Gladstone is lucky to have you Dance Shoppe!!!"

"We have been going to the Dance Shoppe for a number of years now. Every single visit no matter who is helping is has been stellar. The place is small & cramped but clean. They have everything you need for any type of dance. Pointe shoes are hard to fit as well as hard to find places that will sew your strings on but Dance Shoppe will, right in the back. So, I always tell them please sew those puppies on. There are a wide variety of leotards for everyone's budget which is so awesome because I always don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on dance gear. There is a long laundry list of items that my daughter wants from this store so please continue to have sales & items priced at various price point, my wallet thanks you. One time my daughter needed a new dance bag. I looked around and as I always do look for sale & clearance items. Well, I found one! It was perfect for her. great color, enough pockets, she loved it. I took it to the register to ask why was it on clearance & he showed me the area that need attention & I thought ok I still want it. I can just take it some where to have that part sewn back shut or something. He just walked away. moments later he returned with the bag & had sewn it up for me for NO extra charge! WOW...So, now it's not a clearance item correct? of course it is, he said. We stand by our pricing & the products we sell. Well thank you! This is just one of the reasons I continue to go back. Customer service is EVERYTHING to me."
