Carmel’s Dance Wear in Metairie is celebrating its annual “Back to School” sale starting Monday August 13th, 2012 and ending Saturday September 29th, 2012. The dance wear store has been in business for decades and has catered to the dance instruction community with personal, one on one, pointe shoe fittings, as well as dance attire and accessories.  The sale will offer 15% off entire purchases during these dates and operating hours will be extended throughout September 1st – 22nd.  The store will also open on Sundays in September (2nd, 9th, and 16th).

Carmel’s Dance Wear carries a wide variety of pointe shoes including Russian Pointe, Gaynor Minden, Bloch, Suffolk, and more; jazz shoes, tap shoes, leotards, tights, etc. and anything else needed for dance school uniforms, for children and adults.  In addition, Carmel’s staff is knowledgeable in pointe shoe fitting, which is of the utmost importance to avoid injuries when someone dances on pointe.

Carmel’s also has a long-lasting relationship with many dancing schools including Giacobbe, Helena Hosch, Dancer’s Pointe, Kelli’s Kreative, and many more. Each school is contacted before the sale, making sure the correct merchandise is in stock and ensuring the uniforms are what the dance companies require their students to wear.  The owner, Mindy Carrigee is not only a permanent fixture in the store but she’s also an alumnus from NOCCA and Labourdette. Carrigee has not only studied locally, but also with the dance companies Hubbard Street in Chicago and Malashock in San Diego.  In addition, Carrigee was trained by Turkish Ballet Master, Ceyhun Ozsoy and has competed and won in numerous solo and group national competitions throughout her career.  All of the staff at Carmel’s Dance Wear is ready to help with any questions or concerns customers may have regarding dance uniform needs.  Gifts for that special dancer are available for purchase, as well.

Check out their Facebook page by searching “Carmel’s Dance Wear Metairie” or give them a call at 504 457 0101.  This “Back to School” sale is always a success (Saturdays being the busiest), so don’t miss out on saving a ton of money; 15% off an entire purchase is a substantial savings during these lean economic times.  On top of the savings, Carmel’s participates in a program, year round, called “loyalty points” that will add up in customers’ “personal store accounts” on purchases during the year and during the sale (but the points can only be redeemed during non-sale times).  They add up quickly and provide some extra savings customers can enjoy later on in the year!

Carmel’s Dance Wear is located at 3004 Cleary Ave. in Metairie, in between Veterans Memorial Blvd. and the Cleary I-10 overpass.
