SHADES Dancewear

SHADES Dancewear

SHADES dancewear is an inclusive UK brand that allows dancers to retain their identity and embrace their ethnicity from the minute they step into their first dance class.  We believe SHADES dancewear will revolutionise the way dancers of all skin tones view themselves, in a space that has yet to fully acknowledge inclusivity.

Please see Lorraine to check out SHADES tights colour samples.
