Introducing the

Promising beautiful textures and flattering silhouettes so dance educators can outfit their entire studio with award winning costumes

Coral Springs, FL, May 21, 2018 -The past years have held numerous disappointments in the competition dance costume world. From the closing of family-owned businesses such as Liberts, to the missed delivery dates from the big-name catalog companies, dance educators have fewer options than ever when it comes to reliable costume selection.

Black Sapphire Design intends to fill that void. The handmade company, based out of South Florida, keeps its small-batch manufacturing process in house. This ensures that the industry’s high standards for both quality and timeliness are met. This May, their company will introduce its fifth award-winning costume collection to the professional dance sector.

The “Chic” Collection combines classic and trendy silhouettes with beautiful fabric textures. It includes flowing hemlines beautiful for the lyrical genre, classy leotards and skirts perfect for ballet class, and separates intended to create the edgiest contemporary or modern stage look. Complete with eye catching details such as lace overlays and mesh cutouts, costumes from this collection are sure to capture the judges’ attention at every competition.

The styles also allow for color customization – perfect for creating unique fashions for dance teams or soloists. A carefully coordinated, site-wide color palette allows studio owners, coaches, or teachers to design the perfect costumes – ones with a unique look they know their competitors won’t be wearing. The carefully vetted and sourced fabric means a costume can have all three elements – stretch lace, stretch mesh, and Lycra, and be sure the result will have a professional appearance.

The collection can be found on the company’s newly updated website. Special rates apply for dance educators – including studios, schools, and dance retailers.

"The response from our customers this past competition season has been amazing! With so many of the dancers bringing home awards for 'Best Costume,' we are so excited to continue our momentum and release this new collection to the public."
