From 80302 to 80026

Although it feels strange that BBW is moving to a new zip code, our support of the Boulder Arts community as well as East Boulder, Longmont and North Metro is unwaivering. Our new location will enable us to reach more families and households with more resources than our current location is growing into. As a native of Boulder, a graduate of Fairview and CU Boulder, I personally am dedicated to the continuation of availability, growth and quality of arts in our community. Although BBW is a supplier of things that you need or want, we also have enjoyed establishing ourselves as a community hub and a place where memories are made. In our final days at the Canyon location, we are reminiscing about all the people who have been a part of our time here and the incredible exepriences we have been priviledged to have. As my family has grown up and many of my staff have stayed, left and come back, moved on to build new families and communities, we all have stood together through the personal and national tragedies. This has been my home away from home. As an owner, the gratitude I feel towards our customers, my...

Essentrics for Dancers

Essentrics   Essentrics for Dancers By Heather Corey, Essentrics Master Trainer and Owner of Verve Movement Studio, Longmont. Essentrics was created by Miranda Esmonde-White, a professional ballerina who wanted to keep her body strong and flexible after she retired from the ballet. Since its creation, Essentrics has been used by professional ballet schools worldwide, including National Ballet of Canada, Ecole Superieur de Danse du Quebec in Canada and the Ballet School Of Cinderella Peru. Locally, Essentrics has been used by Longmont Dance Theatre, Dance Dimensions & Broadway Performing Academy of Longmont.

Pointe Shoes & Preparing for Summer Intensives

Is your student attending a ballet Summer Intensive program this year? Now that auditions are out of the way, it is time to start making a list of everything you need to bring with you! Planning ahead of time will help make the experience less stressful. Here are some helpful suggestions to make sure your dancer has what they need for the entirety of the program. If your student is going to be dancing on pointe, prepare for the shoes to break down at a more rapid rate than normal class wear and tear. There is nothing worse than wearing a dead pair of shoes during the peak of training! For beginner pointe students who will do some pointe work, but most of class in slippers, we recommend taking 1 pair of shoes for every 2-3 weeks of intensive. For intermediate/advanced students who will be on pointe for a majority of the day, several days a week, we strongly recommend taking 1 pair of shoes per week. If your intensive is located in a region with high humidity, take extra care in keeping the pointe shoes dry. We recommend starting the shoe ordering process at least 4-6 weeks in advance....

Networking within the Arts

  Community engagement within the arts is important to the future of communal arts programs.  Relating community arts to networking, whether it be in-person networking or social media networking, it is key to growing the connection within the community and the arts.  An arts community is supported in-person by attending functions and supporting the arts through donations.  Social media supports the arts community by blogging, liking, reviewing, and by advertising an event.  Supporting an arts community in-person and through social media are two essential connections that need to be made. Performing arts are a growing trend within the community.  For example, local community centers are making an effort to promote a wider variety of the arts genre.  Saturday nights one could go to hear a pops concert from the community band.  On Wednesday a local theatre troupe has their opening show of Annie.  In-person promotes community performances by attendance and by critiquing the event positively so others will attend in the future.  Putting posters up in one’s favorite hot spots and using a local radio and television station to advertise and publicize prior to the event are all different ways to promote an event in person.  The audience for a...

Youth America Grand Prix, Denver 2016

  Once a year, Boulder Body Wear is chosen to represent a vendor at YAGP Denver.Dance schools from all over the region bring students to represent their training programs, and hopefully obtain scholarships to some of the most widely known companies and summer intensives in the industry. This year, Bloch graciously asked BBW to represent their brand. I loaded up my car with various products and giveaways and headed down to Teikyo Loretto Heights University in Englewood, CO. Upon arrival, I could feel the energy and anticipation in the air. Finishing touches on spectacular handmade tutus were being made, touch ups stage makeup were applied and performing pre-show rituals were just a few of the preparations happening in every room. This year, Bloch sent a Misty Copeland pop-up banner that certainly grabbed people’s attention. When parents and participants came to my table, I took the time to show them new products, as well as best selling items that we have to offer at Boulder Body Wear. Bloch’s new ‘EuroStretch’ pointe shoe got the most attention out of all the pointe shoes I had on display. This is because the split outer sole provides a different aesthetic than the traditional full...
