The Dance Collection was established in 1986 in Dover, Delaware.  This is our 33rd Anniversary! We are the only full service dance retailer in Central and Southern Delaware..

The Dance Collection is owned and operated by Patricia A. Land. "Miss Patti" was the founder and owner of "Danceworks Dance Studio" in Newark, Delaware from 1988-2005, when she sold the studio and retired to Central Delaware.  Being bored with retirement, Patti is sharing her expertise and knowledge by becoming the owner of The Dance Collection in 2012.

The Dance Collection has grown over the years and currently carries over 15 major dancewear manufacturer's product lines and many styles of pointe shoes made by many different vendors. Patti and her staff are expert pointe shoe fitters. If you are physically and technically ready, The Dance Collection has a pointe shoe for you. The Dance Collection also carries basic Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Social Dance Shoes, from many vendors, suited for students of all levels of dance. In addition to dance shoes, The Dance Collection also carries apparel, tights, accessories, and gifts covering all the traditional dance forms of Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, and Social Dance as well as Praise/Liturgical, Gymnastics and Cheer. Apparel and Shoes come in styles, colors and sizes that will fit Toddlers, Boys and Girls, adult Men and Women, including plus sizes up to 4X.

The Dance Collection has recently added a Second Hand Section where gently used items may be purchased.  Store credit is given for donations.

Now serving an even wider audience with a wide variety of NEW and USED items!
