Allegro has crossed the pond! Want to know the real story behind Allegro Dance Boutique's European expansion? Read about it here!
Allegro is a fun, friendly spot for dancewear that's as expressive and unique as you are. We carry a curated selection of dancewear from all over the world so you can always look your best while doing what you love to do.
Built on a foundation of our passion for dance and a love of beautiful, hip dance apparel, Allegro is a boutique retailer that aims to provide a fun and relaxed shopping atmosphere for you, our customer. We believe that all bodies in motion feel better and perform better when they are comfortable and look great.
Allegro Dance Boutique began in 2007 in Evanston, Illinois, a charming suburb right next to Chicago, Illinois. Allegro quickly gained a reputation as Chicagoland's premier pointe shoe fitting destination. Our team of 100% passionate dancers is what keeps our company fresh, relevant, and growing. We pride ourselves on being a "by dancers, for dancers" shop that understands the needs of our customers more than anyone else. Allegro opened our second Chicagoland location in 2011 in Barrington, Illinois.
Our new, unexpected expansion is the result of what happens when two people fall in love! Allegro's owner, Victoria Lyman, met the owner of the Portuguese dancewear brand, Ballet Rosa. They eventually got married and now split their time between Chicago, Illinois and Porto, Portugal. Opening a third Allegro location in Portugal was a natural next step! Allegro is proud to carry a fantastic selection of Ballet Rosa products, as well as a wide range of products from other top dancewear brands from around the world.
While in Portugal, Victoria and Luis became friends with a local couple from Braga: Catarina Veiga and Ricardo da Costa, two people who are deeply involved in dance, the arts, and business. Catarina and Victoria are proud to share their love of dance with the local dance community in Portugal by providing a unique selection of products, a high level of customer service, and expert pointe shoe fittings for dancers from near and far.
We are also thrilled to be shipping products to all European customers from our online store. For customers in North America, please visit allegrodanceboutique.com
