About Us- a short story of a family owned business

     Applause Dancewear is a family owned business that opened in 1996. The owner of Applause is Theresa and her daughter, Melissa, is the manager. Melissa began dancing at 3 years old and continued for 17 years. Theresa realized there was a need for a dancewear store in the western area of Nassau County, so she opened Applause in Garden City, NY. After 6 years in that location, Applause grew to a point where we were exploding at the seams. (Thanks to our loyal customers and studio owners!) We needed a bigger location. We found that location at 1602 Hillside Ave. in New Hyde Park. We are presently in this location now and have been for the past  15 years. We love it and are doing great!

     We are proud to be serving our community for over 20 years!

     At Applause we pride ourselves on a pleasent shopping experience. Most of our customers we have known since we have opened and have seen their children grow up into young adults. It is great developing close relationships with your customers!

We make it our priority to get you what you need as soon as possible. We carry a number of different supplies for each individual dancer but we also cater to cheering, kickline and gymnastics teams as well. We sell items in bulk at a discount and we do except tax exempt forms from schools, churches and non-profit organizations.
Selling dancewear online is a difficult business because the sizing is often different from your regular street size. If there is something you need you can call us with any questions to ensure the correct fit. Customer satisfaction is our main priority so call us and let us help you get what you need when you need it.

     Applause Dancewear takes pride in making your online shopping experience extremely exciting and rewarding. Our professional staff is known for being extremely knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. Your business is appreciated and we show it by giving you the best service possible.
