As entrepreneurs, we know how courageous it is to take that next step in your business. That’s why we were thrilled to host a trunk show at M.A.Zing Dancewear in Monroe, NC, which had recently opened at the end of August.

Owner Kerry Thomas’ mother-in-law owns two other M.A.Zing Dancewear locations in Florida, and Thomas was looking to expand the business.

Because the other locations were already doing well with Russian Pointe®, Thomas decided that Russian Pointe® would be one of the first brands she would offer in her new store, and she began by carrying the Entrada, Muse, Almaz and Rubin models.

Already, dancers are flocking to M.A.Zing Dancewear to try on the new Russian Pointe® shoes. On Sept. 14 and 15, Russian Pointe® team member Megan Bentz held a trunk show at the new store, and more than 30 dancers came in for pointe shoe fittings over the course of two days.

The store was buzzing with excitement because many of the girls who were being fit for pointe shoes had just come from Nutcracker auditions at Bonita School of Ballet, located just down the street, and everyone was talking about what parts they hoped they would get in this year’s production.

One of the most special moments of the trunk show was when one mom surprised her daughter, Sarah, by bringing her in on her 12th birthday. Sarah went home with the best gift ever ― her very first pair of pointe shoes!
