Baile Vida Designs
Your dancewear is an integral part of your performance. It should compliment the language of your dance. It should speak with your movements. A whisper or a shout, a sly smile or a single tear. It should be fused into your performance as to be unable to stand alone. It should be noticed, yet let your talent be the focal point, not your clothes. They should help you move from the inside, not just the outside.
This requires an understanding of the dancer and the dance. We at Baile Vida Designs work not just with fabrics and sketches, but with music and rhythm.You could say we dance with our fingers.
We offer ready to wear leotards you will find nowhere else. They are one of a kind, and we consider them affordable art. If you see a style offered that is not in your size, contact us and we will work with you.
Dancers are not rich. At least not most. So we are not charging couture prices for our leotards, even if you request a certain style in your size. We just ask for a little more time.(For custom costuming,please see below.)
We are a small family company at this time, with a big dream. There are many leotards offered by big name companies that lack a certain creativity. We understand that stage performances are the time when you aim to bring it all together, but wonder why you can't be inspired by what you wear while you are learning.
Our intentions are to bring a line of clothing which will inspire the youngest dancers and athletes, as well as offer maturing and learned men and women a way to enhance their expression. We hope to bring you beauty,elegance, grace, funk, razz-ma-tazz and fun. We feel differently with different music, and never see dancewear reflecting this.
Many Dancing Schools require certain "uniforms" or colors, and if requested, we can try to help you fit into the mold with your own style. Our leotards are designed with rehearsals in mind, when you want to feel good while working yourself ragged. A little dazzle can always raise your spirits. A little sparkle can help push you that extra half hour! A "little black dress" type outfit may be how your feeling that day.And there is never a wrong time for the classic tutu derivation!
We will also be offering a custom costuming service for solo performers after August of '03. Competition teams will only be considered on an individual basis, for that is not where our desires lie at this time.
