Shades Dancewear FAQs Updates November 2023

Shades Dancewear is an inclusive UK brand that allows dancers to retain their identity and embrace their ethnicity from the minute they step into their first dance class. We believe Shades Dancewear will revolutionise the way dancers of all skin tones view themselves in a space that has yet to fully acknowledge inclusivity.

While our dance community continues to lack diverse dancewear, Shades Dancewear bridges the gap and caters for Global Majority dancers and performers of all skin tones. We want every Black and Brown dancer to embrace their skin tone by wearing dancewear that truly matches their skin.

Our four shades are Bojangles, Raven, Ailey and Pearl, and we hope to add to our collection in the future.


We are dedicated to ensuring that every voice is heard, and every challenge faced will be addressed with empathy and compassion.


We collaborate with partners and stakeholders, to continually drive the changes with passion and engagement.


We are innovative and inclusive, ensuring diversity of thought through motivating mindsets and embracing perspectives.
