FOOTLIGHTS Dance & Stagewear was established in 1996, with a vision of providing a great choice of quality dancewear, dance shoes and everything needed for enjoying and performing dance in and around the Liverpool & Merseyside area FOOTLIGHTS is owned and run by a team of highly trained & experienced dancers and performers - between us we have over 120 years experience!! Most of our team continue to be involved in dance and stage performance including teaching, choreography, performing with various local theatre groups and performing backstage duties such as props, wardrobe & makeup - and everything in between !! So its safe to say that we know what we are talking about and we LOVE what we do. Our customers are SO important to us, and we see our job as helping them to enjoy dance - and we do that by: 


  • making sure our DANCERS get what they need, whether that is for class, for examination or for shows
  • making sure we help our TEACHERS by ensuring they and their students get the correct items
  • making sure we help PARENTS by understanding what the children should be wearing
  • providing professional advice & guidance on products, classes and anything our customers need to know
  • providing an exceptional & reliable service, good choice of stock and great discounts for regular customers
