Dance has always been a popular pursuit for children, and why wouldn’t it be? It allows kids to expend energy and express emotions while fulfilling their desire for dress-up and role-play. Many find it’s an excellent alternative to traditional sports for fun, fitness, and friend making. Dance also has a tendency to bring out a bit of the glam diva instinct, with girls gravitating toward eye-catching costumes and accessories where diversity and variety are key. The Giggle Guide® applauds the following brands for leading the troupe: Lexi-Luu, Pomchies, Funky Diva, and Sassi Designs.
