Designing a skirt that makes one feel the strength and beauty of their dancing, is exciting. It’s a joy to receive notes from store owners, dancers, and parents, letting me know the beauty of the Gretchen Evans Designs Dance skirt. I am also very grateful for the kind and positive comments from my ballet school students about their experiences in class.
  Our dance studio has been ordering skirts from Gretchen Evans Designs for several years and each time we get a new shipment it is a joy to open up the box and look through all of the new patterns and colors. When we put them out, the students all gather around and debate which is their favorite and they can never decide!
  As a teacher, I love the pop of color that they add to class while still allowing me to see the proper alignment and posture, and the student love the individuality it allows them in the otherwise uniform world of ballet.

We have used all the skirt lengths by Gretchen Evans Designs in our musical productions each summer. They are great for our young performing artists because they flatter a variety of shapes and move so nicely. I even wore the long skirt on opening night!

We have carried Gretchen Evans Designs since her inception. Her skirts are simple and elegant in their flow. The quality is impeccable, and delivery of product is very punctual. It is a pleasure doing business with Gretchen because of her professionalism, and we look forward to continuing for a long time.

Attending Gretchen Evans ballet school for over 3 years has changed my life for the better. I eagerly look forward to going to class, it is something that I crave and it gives me a much needed escape from life’s day to day challenges. Gretchen is very passionate about ballet and I know she cares about me as a person. I have been to other ballet schools but none of them have truly taken the time to get to know me like Gretchen has. She treats me like a family member. The atmosphere is always positive and friendly.

I have been taking ballet dance lessons from Gretchen Evans since I was 4 years old! She is a wonderful person and I appreciate all the personalized attention she gives to improve my technique. She makes the classes fun. I love that we have live piano music. The strength and endurance that I have developed as a result of ballet has helped me tremendously in soccer and eliminating injuries.

My daughter has taken ballet classes from Gretchen for over 8 years and now I am enjoying taking her classes. Gretchen’s love for ballet and her passion for teaching is unmatched. Ballet for me is like a puzzle for the brain, your mind must remain focused at all times. I love the strength and endurance that is developed through dance, my feet and ankles are stronger than ever before and I feel that my muscles and joints are healthier. I like the wide range of ages in the classes. I enjoy interacting with the other dance students as they have all become my good friends. I highly recommend Gretchen Evans Ballet School!      ~ Amy Wall
