Attitudes Dancewear, Etc. to move, expand within Carriage Parkway

WICHITA — Attitudes Dancewear, Etc. is expanding at Carriage Parkway, which is going to necessitate a move within the shopping center near Central and Edgemoor.

“We are busting at the seams,” says owner Beth Rea. “Dance has just gotten more and more popular.”

The store, which is in about 1,000 square feet, has been open near the middle of the center for eight years.

“It went really fast,” Rea says.

The new store, which will have about 2,400 square feet, with be on the southwest side of the center. It opens July 9.

“We’ll have a lot more visibility from Central,” Rea says.

Tony Utter of Utter Commercial Real Estate and Joey Ritchie of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

The additional space will allow for new and expanded lines, Rea says.

“We’ll definitely carry more ballroom and other lines of dance(wear) that we currently have.”

She says eventually she’ll be able to add clothing for gymnastics and possibly cheerleading as well.

Rea says the dance business has been growing for the last decade.

“If that continues, I have bigger dreams for it, but we’ll just see how it goes.”
