About Rhea, owner

Before I became a small business owner, I had a long, successful career in the corporate sales world. Those who know me well, know that I have always been a performing artist at heart.  I have been performing on stage my entire life in both dance and competitive classical piano.

People often ask why I opened a dance store. Being able to combine my extensive business experience with a passion for the performing arts is a dream come true. I have poured my heart and soul into On Pointe Dancewear. Working with the dance community and being a part of someone's dance journey is extremely rewarding.  I  believe in the personal benefits of the performing arts for all ages - the discipline, the mind-body connection, developing grit, experiencing the rewards of long-term hard work, and developing the skills to focus under pressure. Most of all, sharing the joy of dancing with others feels amazing!

Fitting pointe shoes is another love of mine. I can talk about pointe shoes all day and have literally traveled the world to work with and train with some of the best professionals in the pointe shoe industry. One of the greatest joys in my job is seeing a young dancer's smile when she goes up in a perfectly fitted pair of pointe shoes. It's the best! These days when I'm not operating the store, I'm spending time with my husband & 2 kids and of course, still taking ballet, modern, and jazz classes every week.

Thank you for shopping and supporting your local dance store. I hope to meet you at On Pointe in Bellevue.
