Attitude Dance and Active Wear provided me with expert advice and outstanding service in an emergency situation. My daughter was at the Bolshoi Summer Intensive in Connecticut and needed an extra pair of Cloe pointe shoes. Our Manhattan source was unable to get the shoes, so I searched online and found Attitude. Kristin, the owner was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and guided me through the intricacies pointe shoe sizes and helped me create an emergency package of shoes, ribbon and elastic. Then she took it herself to the post office to mail it to my daughter at the Bolshoi! Happy dad, happy daughter and happy feet! I'm seriously considering doing our ballet needs shopping with Attitude instead of in the city. Thank you Kristin!
Attitude is stocked both online and in-store with an amazing assortment of beautiful dancewear, accessories and gifts for any style of dance--but what makes this store so magical are the people who work there--absolutely wonderful staff who treat you like family. Outstanding online customer service too!
This is the place to go for all things dance, gymnastics and activewear. The owner is passionate and kind. She puts so much work into her shop and it truly shows. The staff is warm and friendly. Also a great place to shop for gifts. They also offer many USA made products. Great shop and fun shopping experience.
My daughter has struggled to find the right pointe shoes for a while, and when we came here we figured out her shoes were all wrong for her particular feet. The staff was so nice, especially Kristin (owner) who did the fitting, she was so knowledgeable, patient and professional! My daughter finally found the right pair that fit her, and they look and feel AMAZING! Well worth the hour and a half drive, one way, to get the right shoes!
The absolute best Dance apparel store. Great, knowledgable and friendly staff in a beautiful, clean, well curated space. What more could you ask for? Ribbons sewn on pointe shoes, they do that too! Cant say enough good things about Attitude.
Drove 100 miles (one way) to Attitude based on CCB recommendation for my daughter Leanna’s first pair of pointe. It was worth every mile and every minute of our time. Kristin the store owner worked tirelessly until she found the perfect. Fabulous personalized service with years of experience. We are so pleased that I refuse to take a chance and go anywhere else knowing the right fitting reduces chances of ballet related foot injury. Just made an appointment to go get a second pair as Leanna out grew her first one.
Accurate inventory and extremely fast shipping. My order of 3 pairs of pointe shoes that aren't in stock at my local stores was shipped the day after I ordered it and received on the east coast 2 days later! I won't hesitate to order again if the need arises!
Really like the service and product selection at this store! Best of all staff is super friendly too! You should go shop there!
I love Attitude so much. I’m am 15 and I live at nutmeg ballet year round and Attitude is so reliable anytime I need pointe shoes and everything else! Definitely go there‼!
My first visit to Attitude was to have my daughter fit for pointe shoes. Kristin was wonderful; she took time and tried at least a dozen shoes on my daughter - with each pair talking through the fit - before she was satisfied that she had the right shoe. It was worth every penny we paid for the shoes and they still were discounted 10%!
The second visit was at the request of the same daughter for accessories. Since we were in the area on a Friday evening we drove by to see if the store was still open. It was 5:55 PM. The sign outside said they closed at 5 but Kristin's mom was still inside helping a customer. We poked our heads in to ask if they were still open - the answer "technically no but come on in." She finished w/ the other customer and took the time to fit my second daughter for new ballet slippers while number one chose her accessories. Despite the fact that we offered to return on Saturday she was willing to help us and stay as long as necessary.
I am a confirmed internet shopper but Attitude is worth the drive across town for their service. A great place.
I preface my review by stating that I did not go to buy pointe shoes here, I'm far from needing those types of items but if I needed them, I'd surely return to get advice and order them from the woman who run this store. I did stop in to check out their workout gear and found an array of beautiful items to purchase not only for myself but for any ballet loving niece or daughter I might have!
Kristin and Ginny own the store and provide personal and attentive service. If you can't find what you are looking for, I'd be surprised as the shop is filled to the brim with all the things you would want as a dancer and even things you didn't even think of.
I visit a lot of Dancewear stores, this store is just amazing with the selection of product, the amount of leotards, shoes, tights, and everything else for dance.
If you want to get a good pointe shoe fitting, this is a place for you. This store has the best selection of pointe shoes, from Capezio, Bloch, Grishko to even Wear Moi and others.
And the amount of leotards they have is unsurpassed.
Between knowledgeable staff and great selection, this store gets my recommendation.
Kristen is a great pointe show fitter. Even with a busy store she took the time with my daughter to find the right fit. She knows her stuff and is very genuine in her desire to do the right thing for her dance customers. They have a great selection in leotards and all other dance accessories.
The sales people were so helpful and friendly. My son is in a New Canaan High School play and needed character shoes. I had a hard time finding any online that fit my his big and wide teenage feet. Attitude Dance gave me three great options upon my first visit. He was able to dance in their shoes comfortably, right out of the box. Such a relief after having purchased and returned several pairs from other online stores. I'll be heading straight to Attitude Dance for any future purchases, you can't beat their service! I highly recommend them.
Can't praise Attitudes enough. Kristen helped my daughter find the best pointe shoes for her feet. Helpful, knowledgable, friendly staff. It's an 86 mile round trip for us but well worth a tank of gas!
i walked in on a hunch .. With an Achilles injury looking at any option for a shoe !! My brother owns a boxing gym in Stamford where I spend hours a day .. These ladies were so helpful and understanding ! The dance ladies guided me into better shoes for boxing / boot camp !! Who would think ?? Thank you so much!
The owners are exceptionally knowledgeable. Wonderful pointe shoe fitting experience. Couldn't be happier.
An amazing dance store with everything you would ever need! The staff treats me like family.
The best dance store on the East Coast!!! This store has everything you need for all kinds of dance. Twirl and leap at Attitude... lol. Really though this is an awesome store.
Wonderful store that has a terrific selection and knowledgeable professional staff. If you love dance then you'll love Attitude.
Great store, great inventory and great owner and staff!!!
