Day Three: For Us By Us: Black-owned Dancewear Companies Wednesday, April 27, 2016
About today’s theme:
Do you know about Ballet Cafe Naturals, FleshTone, Kinetic Essentials, Mahogany Blues Apparel, Nude Barre, and Shades of Dance? These black-owned companies create products such as tights, shoes, leotards, undergarments, and shoe polishes that match various shades of brown! These bold entrepreneurs got in the game to serve dancers of color after being frustrated in their own searches for nude products for themselves--they, too were #dyeingtomatch. Created by dancers for dancers, these product lines and the dedicated people behind them deserve our support, promotion, and celebration! Today, we’ll honor these companies, promote their products, and thank them for creating dancewear just for us. Click Here to view these companies websites.
