About Us

Thank you for visiting our website!

Empire Dance Shop was founded in 1950 and has proudly served thousands of customers from all genres of dance and all parts of the world. Over the years, its fine reputation has been built and from 1984 until mid-January 2016, Phillip and Sally Broadbent carried on the tradition as the second family to own and operate the shop.

On January 13th, 2016, the Mick family became the proud new owners of Empire Dance Shop. The legacy of outstanding customer service and commitment to supplying and supporting the Dance and Performing Arts community remains the number one priority. It is the generations of loyal customers that have shopped with us that have made Empire Dance Shop so very special. As the new owner, we understand the importance of traditions. Melanie, as a young dancer, bought her very first dance shoes from the founders of Empire Costume. Her last pair of pointe shoes purchased from the shop in the 1970's have now found a home in the display case! The dance tradition continued in the Mick family, with Izzy and Emily purchasing all of their dancewear from Phillip and Sally. Our love of the shop, the staff and the incredible service we always received, made the decision to continue the legacy very easy.


Empire Dance Shop serves customers in all corners of the world and knows you have many options when it comes to buying dancerwear. In today's changing marketplace, we have proven that complete customer service is still a priority for the discerning customer looking for selection, product knowledge and the competent fitting skills that are our trademark.
