Let's talk ECO.
Did you know, according to IBIS World, there are 66,266 Dance Studio Businesses in the United States as of June 2021.
If each studio has an average of 150 students taking just one class, that is 9,939,900 costumes a year....
Now if each student takes an average of 3 classes that is 29,819,700 costumes... A YEAR!
Dance Xchange gives you the opportunity to think a little more ECO-friendly and help give your costumes a second life.
Like all businesses, Dance Xchange began as an idea that seemed almost too big to achieve. Margeaux McCarthy was a small-town dance teacher that saved every paycheck from the studio to fund this idea.
As a teacher in the competition world and a former professional dancer, Margeaux saw so many dance costumes with essentially no other use.
Each costume has a life of its own and tells a unique story. Most costumes live in a closet or an attic after the season is over. Dance Xchange gives the opportunity for that story to continue.
