About Us

Second Skin Shop

Second Skin Shop is a family business that started in 1976 as the largest dancewear shop in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We are centrally located in the Masonic Building in Downtown Marquette. Our customer service, quality of product, & competitive pricing makes us a dancer's delight!

In 2002 we created our online store, which has become the premier dancewear site for both recreational & professional dancers world wide. We offer competitive pricing on top brands of dancewear including Ballet Rosa, Bloch, Body Wrappers, Capezio, Eurotard, Gaynor Minden, Mirella, Mondor, Sansha...

In 2020 we started the #Bunheadstrong campaign encouraging dancers to make a difference by sewing face masks & donating them to local school children. We also hosted virtual dance classes & lectures with pro dancers from across the US.


Top Elite Dance Retailers Award (2010) by Capezio for recognition of our success in the dance community through community outreach programs.

Art Business Honor Roll Award (2017) by the City of Marquette Arts & Culture Center for our charitable work with the dance community.
