“Where did you find that?”
We have heard that question repeatedly over the years from dancers, dance teachers and moms of dancers who would inquire about a snack container, or water bottle, or dance bag or cover up that Tyler was using. We loved pointing dancers and moms in the direction of our finds, but we soon came to understand that much of the interest was driven by “gifting”. Of course, dancers wanted the items for themselves, but they also knew it would make a great birthday gift for their dance friend. And moms of dancers saw our finds as the perfect gifts for recitals, competitions, holidays and more.
barre + bag was launched to offer elevated gift collections of dance, wellness and lifestyle finds for dancers.
As a pre-professional ballerina, Tyler has had opportunities to dance summers with Boston Ballet and Joffrey Ballet among others, and attend University of North Carolina School of the Arts - a year round dance conservatory. Those experiences combined with our network of professional and pre-professional dancers around the country mean that we have insight into the best products, tools and wellness trends in the dance industry.
