At LOLAstretch, change is our constant and we are currently plotting a rather large and exciting reinvention of ourselves. In the meantime, we have a few questions for you:
1. Do you like to make things, bake things, create in any way, shape or form? Please tell us about all of your interests and hobbies that intersect with or depart from dance.
2. Do you or any dancer you know make fine art pieces or high-quality crafts? Please recommend your friends or yourself and include any links to work or projects and your contact information.
3. Who are your greatest inspirations inside and outside of the dance community?
4. What would you most like to learn or be able to make?
5. What do you see yourself doing after your dance career?
Please send an email to email@example.com answering these 5 questions and we will email you back a $15.00 off Sale Code for any item in Candice’s Closet or hook you up with $10.00 Stars Legwarmers!

So much fun! Great job @ksloan
The Fall Photo Shoot with Paul Taylor Dancers was such a blast! Here’s a sneak peak at what inspires Featured Liaison, Eran Bugge, to dance…
-What inspired you to pursue dance professionally and what continues to inspire you to
I can’t remember not wanting to be a dancer. It’s hard to say what initially inspired me. It’s always been a part of me. I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love Paul’s work. It is so varied. Within his repertoire there are so many different styles. You are constantly stimulated and challenged. The other dancers provide such a source of inspiration. I think they are some of the best dancers in the world. There is something about his work that feels very human allowing us to always find ways of connecting with each other on stage. Everyone is totally committed and there 100%. I can’t help but to be inspired working in the studio with Paul and the other dancers.
It’s a Lola legwarmer epidemic! Saw Tory North in a pair of star legwarmer in Deborah Wingert’s class at MMAC today
emilyscott asked: Why wont you bring back custom designs? I really loved being able to make beautiful leotards exactly the way I wanted for less than Yumikos.
We replaced custom ordering with LOLAline and the Special Orders option mainly because we could not afford to keep offering such a labor intensive service at a $48 price. We wanted to be able to design more new styles and curate small but fantastical collections of bright colors while still being able to keep a price our customers could afford, so that is how LOLAline was born. You still have the option to inquire about a special order of any style; we will then look at each special order individually and give a price quote and production estimate that is accurate for that order and covers our costs.
I know many of our customers did enjoy custom ordering, but as our company has grown and we have had to think about how we can make sure our business is sustainable. The unfortunate reality is that making dancewear made to order, in the USA, is expensive. We see these two options, LOLAline and Special Orders, as our best attempt to offer fashion at an affordable price and special order options for those who are willing to spend more for a made to order garment. Please also keep in mind that you can continue to find unique color combinations in many out of stock styles in Candice’s Closet.
Thanks for your support and interest in our company!

Tonight I got to interview our Fall Featured Liaison, Eran Bugge of the Paul Taylor Dance Company. It was awesome getting to hear her story. I can’t wait to share it with everyone. We ended up bumping into her fellow PTDC members Michelle Fleet and Laura Halzack. What a fun group of ladies! This is going to be a great photo shoot!
