6th Annual Fashion Show!
October 2, 2022
On Sunday, October 2nd, 2022, Bellissimo presented "Better Together", its 6th Annual Back to Dance Fashion Show, highlighting the latest and greatest in dance and fitness wear from around the world. This unique production has become a favorite among dancers, teachers, studio owners and the community as a whole. This event is more than just a fashion show; it provides a rare opportunity for all of Nashville’s dance community to come together in a non-competitive setting to celebrate a shared love of dance, fashion and friendship. More than anything, this event is about COMMUNITY.
Because of that, this year’s show theme was “Better Together.” When it comes down to it, dance isn’t just about trophies or jobs. It is about pushing ourselves as artists and athletes, and when the dance community comes together in unity, we can push each other. And we can have a great time doing it! As witnessed during our 2022 Fashion Show, the Middle Tennessee dance world is so very special, and we are honored to serve it.
This year’s models featured 59 models, representing 32 Greater Nashville dance programs. These beautiful ladies showcased 25 brands and 185 looks in the 2022 show. In addition to the fashion show, booths featuring all kinds of local businesses related to dance and fitness were set up for shopping and information; and the Bellissimo Pop Up Boutique was also on-site!
Our mission at Bellissimo has always been to find that perfect “beautiful” for each and every one of our customers. Fashion is an expression of who we are and how we feel about ourselves, and when it comes to dance, it is an expression of who we are as dancers. By consistently researching new styles, trends, and brands, we hope to have something for everyone and make every dancer feel beautiful in their dance clothes. Be bold. Be yourself. Be Bellissimo.

Feeling Wobbly? Try These Four Exercises for Longer, Stronger Balances
-Madeline Schrock with Pointe Magazine
If you're feeling wobbly in adagio or wish you could hold your piqué attitude a bit longer, there are ways to assess and improve your balance. Try these four exercises, recommended by Heather Southwick, Boston Ballet's director of physical therapy.
* painter's tape or masking tape
* something sturdy to tie the TheraBand to, like a chair leg
* Airplane Series
The airplane test assesses dynamic balance, or how stable you are as you move through positions. "It can be a helpful indicator of where in the chain is difficult for you," says Southwick. This progression lets you focus on balance and strength simultaneously, while preparing you for adagio.
Start in parallel passé and extend to arabesque, creating a straight, horizontal line from head to toe. Hold your arms in a T, like an airplane.
Why Ripstop Pants?
Also called trash bag pants (or shorts), these loose fitting garments have been a dance staple since forever. The technology behind them is nothing new: wear fabric that is not breathable, and your body will get warmer and sweat more. There is no doubt that it works. Wearing trash bag pants during warm up or backstage before a performance will ensure that the legs (especially the hips) are warmed up enough to dance without injury. And, of course, they’re pretty cute, too!
Seriously Big Sale!
Bellissimo's Annual Bin Sale begins today and runs for one week! With prices slashed to $5, $10, $15, $20 and $25 on some of your favorite styles and brands, this is one BIG SALE you SERIOUSLY don't want to miss. In-store only.

September 30, 2018
Ushering in a new season of dance means it’s time to debut all the new “beautiful”, as well! And what fun we had doing just that with our 3rd annual “Back to Dance Fashion Show. This cutting-edge, fashion-forward event highlights and debuts dancewear from American designers, as well as those from Canada, Australia, Portugal, Spain, Israel and the United Kingdom. Over 40 different brands and 160 “looks” were presented throughout the event, with even more brands, designs and styles available in the boutique.
This year’s models featured 59 dancers representing 34 dance programs throughout Williamson, Davidson, Rutherford and Sumner Counties. Approximately 300 guests attended this year’s event.
While relatively new to the event scene of Nashville, this unique production has quickly become a favorite among dancers, teachers, studio owners and the community as a whole. It provides a rare opportunity for all of Nashville’s dance community to come together in a non-competitive setting to celebrate a shared love of dance, fashion and friendship.
The mission of Bellissimo is to empower all girls to feel beautiful just the way they are. Bellissimo, which means “beautiful,” reflects the belief of store owners Patrice Powell and Kelley Descher that when you do something you love and are passionate about – with all your heart – your inner beauty shines and cannot be contained. This fashion event reflects the mission of Bellissimo: “Fashion doesn't make beauty - YOU do. It comes from inside; beauty is WHO you are. But, fashion does allow us to express our own individual beautiful. Cute, fun, edgy, elegant. What is YOUR beautiful? At Bellissimo we strive to find the perfect dancewear that allows each dancer to express their own kind of beautiful."
