It’s wonderful to discover another brand from the beautiful country of France. I have this thing about Europe in general, so you can imagine how happy I was to find a brand named Dansez-Vous. Translated to English, I believe that means Do You Dance?
Dansez-Vous has a collection of soft slippers with names like Vanie, Nevis, Ana, Nina, and Lili.
They also manufacture two pointe models at the moment; the Margot and the Elene.
Don”t you love it when pointe shoes have girly names?
The two models are almost identical in specifications, but are made for different levels of pointe work. Both have u-shaped vamps with elastic drawstrings and 2 widths to choose from. The platforms are generous on both models.
Dansez-Vous has an interesting way of doing business. Instead of having their own storefront for the public, they have a Plateforme Logistique , also known as a Logistics Headquarters in English.
The address of their Logistics Headquarters is 154, Rue de Preize, 10000 Troyes, France. This address comes back to a dance shop named Coppelia. Très intéressant, no?

According to their website, they manufacture products in *several factories, so I am guessing that inventory is moved from the factory to the Coppelia shop for main distribution to registered retailers.
I placed an email inquiry on the Dansez-Vous Website about where the Margot and Elene are made to be sure they are a genuine French brand. I won’t hold my breath, but I look forward to an answer.
