Danskin clothing has been leading the dance wear market since 1882. Danskin provides clothing choices for women and young girls. The company began as a small, family owned business that provided clothing for New York dancers. Today the company has grown to provide active wear, casual wear, fashionable clothing, shoes, and accessories as well.

Danskin Clothing Options

Danskin clothing can be found mostly in dance wear or active wear stores. You can visit these stores personally to find clothes that fit, or if you already know your size, you can order from online dance wear websites. The company offers a wide range of female sizes between 2T for girls and women's size 26. Danskin is well-known for combining stylish clothing designs with quality materials, the most current technology, comfort, femininity, and a great fit.

Danskin was the first clothing company to produce knit-tights, leotards, and fishnet stockings. The company was also the first to create the colors Ballet Pink and Theatrical Pink for dance tights. To this day, pink tights are a standard for ballet classes and performances. Danskin now offers many different styles of dance wear, including jazz pants, unitards, leotards, legwarmers, footless tights, hot shorts, tops, shoes, and dance bags.

In addition to dance wear, Danskin clothing also caters to the general active woman. Danskin has a large collection of active wear that can be worn for yoga, jogging, aerobics, sports, and triathlons. The Danskin signature fabric for active wear is Supplex with Lycra. This fabric is long-lasting, comfortable, holds its color through washing, and dries quickly. Danskin has recently introduced their O2 Performance fabric which is made from cotton, nylon, and spandex and provides a free flow of oxygen to the body.
