For the first time in the United States, you can nab dance wear from Japanese brand Chacott and British label Freed of London under one roof. Whether you’re a professional dancer or merely spent your childhood in a tutu, you’ll be in awe of the floor-to-ceiling 14-foot-long wall boasting Freed of London pointe shoes ($94) and ballet slippers ($20–$30), which are styles famously worn by members of the New York City Ballet. Stock up on rehearsal gear such as Chacott tights ($14–$28) and Freed of London leotards ($38–$102), and get ready for the stage with cosmetics including powder puffs ($8) and full-body foundation ($42). The store also has professional fitters who spend a full 40 minutes to properly size you, and offers custom-order costumes ($500–$900) and handmade tiaras ($268–$384). Yoga buffs can also get in on the action with Chacott apparel ($24–$189) and Manduka professional mats ($98).
