The Glitter and Dance Story

Glitter and Dance has been an industry favourite for dance fabric supplies since opening its doors in Brisbane, Australia 1994. We are a family run operation that is dedicated to providing the very best in customer service to help our customers create the perfect costume.

Our customers are some of the most respected dance organisations in Australia, including:

  • The Australian Ballet Company
  • The Queensland Ballet & Theatre
  • Warner Brothers Movie World Productions

We have also supplied fabrics and costumes to major TV shows including “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing With The Stars”. 

We continue to be one of Australia’s preferred suppliers for all major musicals, TV dance shows, Australian film and theatre productions including Baz Lurhmann’s “The Great Gatsby”, as well as the go-to dance fabric store for local dance schools and dance mums.

Why? Simply because we know and love dance. We know which fabrics look stunning and will last the rigours of dance performances without sagging, stretching or losing embellishments.

And we treat each customer – from the first-time dressmaker through to our major production companies with the same level of courtesy, attention to detail, support and advice.

That’s why we will often ring to double-check orders with our customers to ensure they achieve the results they are looking for – and not just cut, send and hope for the best.
