Beauty In Motion Dancewear Boutique

Meet Me: Mandy Halbur, Owner

I have been passionate about dance since I was a young child. I grew up dancing at a studio in my home town of Carroll, IA as well as participating in numerous opportunities at my High School. From Swing choir to the dance studio I always knew that music and expression through movement were my passion and kept me going.

After High School I quit dancing, I went to college at Iowa State University and started thinking about my future career. I took some dance classes to fulfill required credits, but I didn’t continue to pursue my passion. At the time I didn’t think much of it, but now looking back, I regret not pursuing dance further.

I never had the “picture perfect” dancer body, I never thought I looked cute in a leo like so many of my friends did. Now that I have a daughter of my own in dance, it hurts me to look back at my past and think that my image of myself is what stopped me from pursuing my passion. This is a large reason behind my desire to bring Beauty In Motion Dancewear Boutique to the Dubuque area. I want to empower young women to do what they love regardless of any barriers standing in their way.

My store will carry brands and styles that are inclusive to all body types and genres of dance as well as gymnastics. I will carry class attire, shoes, accessories and gifts to ensure that all dancers have what they need to succeed and grow in their passion.
