Our Approach

We understand that having a really good fit is everything to a dancer. It's why people from around the globe visit On Pointe Dancewear to get fitted correctly for dance shoes and to enjoy the opportunity to try on our amazing selection of carefully curated dance attire. Not only do our customers love supporting their local family-owned dance store, they appreciate the value of a professional shoe fitting, our convenient location, and having a trusted advisor to help them through the myriad of product choices out there.

We believe that having a helpful attitude, setting the right expectations, and a smile goes a long way when it comes to providing quality service.  On Pointe is intentionally a boutique - meaning we don't have every dance knick-knack out there but we think you will love what we have to offer. Rest assured that there is nothing pretentious about shopping at our boutique. We love working with people taking their first dance class just as much as helping a professional dancer. Our staff is committed to making your shopping experience fun, relaxing, and personal.  Thank you for supporting your local dance store.

About Rhea, owner

Before I became a small business owner, I had a big job in the corporate sales world.  It was a wonderful career but as we all know, life changes and dreams evolve. I have always loved the arts, having performed throughout my life as a dancer and classical pianist. Even as an adult, I still relish in the joy of continuing my dance training and being a part of this wonderful community. In the summer of 2017, I decided to take the leap and create the company I always wanted.

I have poured my heart and soul into On Pointe Dancewear. I feel passionate about working with the local dance community and being a part of a dancer's journey. I love seeing the excitement on a little girl's face when she puts on her first tutu or educating a young ballerina about her first pair of pointe shoes. Or helping dancers find the perfect dance audition outfit and hearing how it all went afterwards. Fitting pointe shoes for me isn't just a job, it's kind of an [healthy] obsession. I absolutely love what I do.

These days when I'm not operating the store, I'm spending time with my husband & 2 kids here in Bellevue and of course, still taking ballet and modern dance classes every week.

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