About Us

Contra Costa Dancewear opened in 1990, and has been located in the same area of Walnut Creek ever since. We continue to offer dancers of all ages a wide variety of ballet and point shoes and apparel as well as our very special “Sew & Send” service.

McGarry Caven, a former professional dancer and currently a dance instructor, performer and producer, saw the need for this unique “Sew & Send” program many years ago. And, Contra Costa Dancewear has been providing it to their in-store customers ever since.

Unique Products & Services For Dancers Of All Ages
If you are a dancer who knows your style and size and wants ribbons and elastics sewn onto your shoes so they are ready to wear, we can sew the ribbons and elastics for you, and you pay nothing extra to have that done if you purchase the shoes through us. We do charge a fee for ribbons and elastics. If you send us other shoes, we will charge you a fee to sew them on those shoes.

Helpful Staff Awaits
Our experienced staff has been with the company for many years, and each can provide you with valuable assistance if needed—in store, on the phone, or by e-mail.
