When designing and creating ballroom dance dresses, I draw upon my extensive knowledge and experience in the field. With over 35 years of experience, I am well aware of the styles and colors that complement different body types and dance styles. Additionally, I prioritize the comfort and budget of my clients to ensure their satisfaction.
As a little girl, I dove headfirst into the world of Barbie dolls, then channeling my creativity and designing fashionable outfits throughout my school years. Now, with my extensive background in fashion and my passion for ballroom dance (since the ancient times of 1981), I proudly present to you a collection of stunning and bespoke ballroom dance dresses and so much more! Whether you're gliding gracefully across the dance floor or busting out your best Latin moves, these dresses are sure to make a statement. But wait, there's more! We've got men's Latin-rhythm shirts, social dresses, and so much more. And hey, if you've got a special occasion coming up – prom, pageant, or even a solo dance performance – I'll custom make a dress or costume just for you, because why settle for anything less than fabulous?!
You can choose from existing designs or we can work together to create whatever you desire from classic,conservative & simple to very ornate, elaborate & risque…plus anywhere in between to suit your personality, event & budget!!
Customer satisfaction is a priority! I give my clients exclusive, undivided, special attention! Consulting with you, giving very special attention to your individual needs & desires for style, color, fit & budget, from the simple designs for beginner ballroom show dancers or those who desire simplicity, to the very ornate, elaborate for the more seasoned ballroom dancer who desire to sparkle & shine with a lot of glitz & glamour… to assure you are satisfied… plus feel like a star!!
In this age of technology & being able to purchase many of my dresses online, I really love working personally with my clients & giving them individual, private & special attention! So, if you see something online that you would love to purchase & have questions or you would like something similar in a different size or color, or more dazzle, call Linda Crystal at 440-327-7121. I would love to help you pick out the perfect dress especially for you!
Once your ballroom dress is done & delivered or picked up, if there are any adjustments of any kind that need addressed, they are taken care of in a timely matter!
The ballroom dress designs, along with any others I produce, are meticulously designed with a genuine passion. Furthermore, it brings me immense satisfaction to offer personalized creations for my valued customers.

Let me tell you about the most thrilling part of my life: owning a Fred Astaire Dance Studios for 13 adventurous years, where I taught ballroom dance and dominated the competition scene for over 20 years! My students and pro partners were beyond amazing, not to mention all the awards I collected for my dancing and teaching prowess. In 1994, I decided to take a leap of faith and embark on my own journey, treasuring every single person who shaped me into the talented dancer and teacher I've become.
