We are a dance community striving, like so many others, to provide the best care for our students and families. In order to move on to the next decade without losing our costume history (and soul), and to appease my accountant, ‘Penny’s Dance Costumes For Hire’ was born.
Over the years the majority of our costumes are purchased by our families to a preset budget. If we need to exceed this budget to fill our brief then we keep them. Ten years on I find myself storing hundreds if not thousands of costumes, all of which have taken more time to create than I'm willing to admit and more investment than my accountant will ever comprehend.
For us, costumes are one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of performing. They light up our students’ eyes and minds and are often the first point of transforming a character, or the finishing touch. Costumes can also present an arduous almost daunting task. I have often found online costumes too restrictive in fit, style, movement, colour, taste and cost. Skirt lengths, neck, back and bust lines, leotard widths, waist measurements, even when made in lycra often require individual adjustments. I have spent the last decade researching and refining ideas, half of that with the most impressive AND patient costume designer and creator (lucky me). It’s a priority of mine that students always feel comfortable and confident in what they’re wearing, in all styles of dance. Designing costumes that allow for supportive yet discreet underwear has proven to be the perfect start.
Who is Penny? Our beloved receptionist and ex dance mum who is on a mission to find order, no matter how chaotic studio life becomes. She is also our guardian costume angel.
