I'm so excited about this new line of dance clothing and accessories created by Jamia Ramsey. One of the big trends in dance apparel for kids is getting the skin tone right. Blendz Apparel has a color for every skin tone and helps young dancers feel beautiful and confident.

Trends in Dance Apparel for Kids

There couldn't be a more important time to talk about small business owned by Black women. Ramsey, an African-American woman, created the company to make high-quality, professional dance apparel and shoes for ALL SKIN TONES.

How Blendz Apparel Started

Ramsey has been dancing since the age of two, and often wore tights and ballet shoes that never matched her complexion or spent countless hours and money on pounds of make-up, shoe sprays, and dyes attempting to match her tights and shoes to her skin.

Twenty-five years later, she started my own dance academy, DanceMoves and saw her dancers and their parents still doing the exact same thing, so she created Blendz Apparel.
