Who We Are
At Costume Gallery, we love dance and we love dancers. It's impossible to look at a little girl in her recital costume and not smile!
We're privileged to manufacture products that bring joy to dancers around the world! Our mission is to delight dancers and their teachers, by bringing them phenomenal styles that are well constructed and delivered on time or whenever possible, early. Every year we publish a catalog offering an amazing array of close to 400 completely new styles, with the latest fabrics that stretch and sparkle!
The extremely low turn-over rate of our employees is evidence that something magical happens in our factory in Burlington, NJ. For example, one of our sample makers started with the company in 1961! The employees at Costume Gallery make every effort to bend over backwards to not just satisfy customers, but to turn them into enthusiastic fans. The shared spirit of camaraderie and passion to create a special dance experience is what keeps studio owners not only coming back year after year, but recommending Costume Gallery to their colleagues. Check out the Testimonials section of this website to see what we mean.
Costume Gallery is a growing company because studio owners, teachers and coaches know that with this company they’re not just buying costumes they’re buying peace of mind.
What We Believe
Principle of Professional Cooperation
In an effort to build respect, maintain open communications and promote goodwill between vendors and dance studios/teachers, UNITY Inc. has created the "Principles of Professional Cooperation." These principles offer a foundation for building integrity and mutual respect between the dance education community and those who wish to provide customer services. Teachers/studio owners recognize the importance of timely and concise communications with vendors. In order to achieve their goals, UNITY suggests that Teachers/studio owners:
Communicate with vendors in a timely manner
Place orders promptly
Clearly state "required by" date
Clearly state special needs
Specify their preferred method of communication, e.g., email, phone, letter
Pay for orders as agreed with vendor
Be able to check order status at anytime
Allow sufficient time for order changes
Partner with vendors to solve special needs
Vendors appreciate the opportunity to exceed the Teacher/studio owners expectations. In an effort to do this, UNITY suggests that Vendors:
Communicate with teachers/studios in a timely manner
Assure accurate catalog descriptions and pictures
Specify lead time needed to build costumes
Clarify preferred and alternative communications, e.g., email, phone, letter
Send order confirmations in a timely manner
Secure the order date only upon payment
Observe “required by” date - If not possible, please issue timely notification
Accept order changes, given sufficient time
Assure that costumes are wearable upon arrival
Partner with teachers/studio owners to resolve problems and suggest alternative solutions.
UNITY is a non-profit coalition of dance education and associated organizations. It promotes cooperation and dialogue within the dance profession and speaks with a unified voice on dance education and dance related issues.
