Dancing Fair was founded in 1955 by Theodore Schroepfer. The Fair started out as a family department store that sold orthopedic shoes. Theodore Schroepfer helped out dancers with foot problems. He used his orthopedic expertise to make comfortable shoes for dancers. He would customize any shoe to meet the dancer’s needs. In 1988 the department store closed, and Theodore started a wholesale dance and theatrical shoe company. Since then, The Fair has grown from a one-man operation to a full-service manufacturer and distributor of quality shoes. We have expanded from shoes to legwear, bodywear, orthotics and a whole host of extras. Dancing Fair has been providing exceptional service and support to dance studios and professional dancers all across the globe for nearly 50 years.
