The Original Mission of Body Dreams

Founded by Mark Stone, and formally known as "Body Dreams", Avenue of the Arts Dancewear has been a staple within the arts community since 1995. We are a small, local business, located conveniently right on South Broad Street- the Avenue of the Arts!

Here at Ave Arts Dancewear, we are committed to providing you with all of your dance apparel needs.

Avenue of the Arts Dancewear is fully invested in our thriving dance community, and we love to work closely with dance studios, dance companies, and universities. We provide discounts to the institutions that we are involved with, and also offer discounts on bulk ordering.


We Miss You Mark!

Under Same Management

Mark left us a legacy. A beautiful thriving legacy in the heart of Philly. For young people to have a space to learn the arts. Our mission goes far beyond the dance apparel or the costumes. Our mission is to clothe those who have a dream. A passion. A mission to create a beautiful space with their dance and movement. 

Our store is still under the same management. Leanne grew into a management position while Mark was operating Ave of the Arts. She is tightly connected to all aspects of the store. 

She is in love with the art space and continues to provide dancewear with a mission. The grand re-opening will showcase the many high end fashion pieces and functional dancewear that has made their debut on many dancers and models. 

There is no change of the guard. There is a continuation of a legacy happening here. The store, the dancewear, the customer service will all linger on in memory of Mark. 

All of our staff here are highly trained, professional dancers who are knowledgable about our products, and eager to assist you in finding the best fit for yourself.

To our loyal fans: we look forward to seeing you again soon...and to our new friends: we look forward to meeting you!
