Mimi's Farewell

mimiferrie To my Boulder Body Wear Community, Beginning in December 2013, I will be leaving my managerial position at Boulder Body Wear to focus on professional dance performance and education. It is with gratitude and love that I leave Boulder Body Wear. It’s been a pleasure to serve the Boulder dance community over the last ten years. I’m very proud of my years at the store, starting as a part time employee in 2004.  Serving as a pointe shoe specialist and manager, I’ll be leaving with fond memories of the people I have come to know and love here. With my departure Amy, Christine, or Jin will be contacting you if I have been working specifically with your school. Don’t hesitate to contact us in the next two weeks if you have any specific information you would like me to pass along to the store management. I know that Boulder Body Wear (and you) will always be a part of my “dance family” and leave with excitement of what’s to come for all of us in the future! Best, Mimi Ferrie

Angel Organic & a clever idea by Christine Moore

It's that time of year when we start cleaning out our closets and drawers of endless black stretchy garb that has been lovingly used in yoga and dance class. The newest fashions along with the tried and true basics are in Boulder Body Wear now and there is an itch to replace the old with the new. Christine's clever idea is that you bring your old gently used yoga clothing to us between May 21st and June 11th... We in turn will give it to Angel Organics to distribute. You will get $5 off your next purchase at Boulder Body Wear. Get something new and know that you helped someone else while doing so. Angel Organic cultivates and nurtures a meaningful path to integrative health and healing pracitices within under served individuals and communities. Your gently used items will be distributed to those who can use them now at the Boulder County Safehouse and the Family Learning Center of Boulder. Learn more about Angel Organics and all they do for those in our community by visiting www.angelorganic.org.

Kids today....

One of the wonderful benefits to being owner of Boulder Body Wear is working with young people and their mentors. Lately, I have been lucky enough to attend many performances from these young creative souls. Poetry, choreography, dance and music. My comment on kids today is this- faced with a world of new technology, tightened economic possibilities affecting education and nutrition and an ever changing world of politics and war, these young people are creative, resourceful, intelligent and caring. They have wonderful mentors, teachers and adults. The outcome is beautiful. Support your local arts groups by attending performances. I guarantee you will benefit in ways beyond the obvious. I'm so excited for our future.

Complete. Restart. Smile.

June is a busy month at Boulder Body Wear.  A full circle of events seem to bring dancers into see us, closing out the year with performances, getting gear for intensives and camps, starting new classes. It's a lot of fun to see new ballerinas, tappers and gymnasts getting excited to learn something new during the summer break. Theatrical camps have students exploring new roles. Older students travel and challenge themselves.  Thank you to everyone who donated to our used clothing drive. We were able to deliver a respectable amount of very nice and usable clothing to Angel Organic. A round of applause goes out to Revolution Power Yoga for their very large donation. Once again, yoga fashion shines bright. In the coming weeks you'll see the BBW staff out at The Avalon and the St. Julien promoting our incredible social dance shoe selection. We will be traveling out of state to fit pointe shoes and service areas that are without a local dance store for their fall dance gear. Our wonderful shoes are available to any customer online for 20% off. Use code bbwshoes20 at the checkout to not only save money but also time and fuel. You can also check out our video library to learn about pointe...
