About Us

Frank Kinney moved his Family Department Store located on East New York Street in 1976 and became Kinney Dancewear, located at 62nd & Keystone Ave. Kinney Dancewear remained in this location for 44 years. In 2001 Kinney Dancewear expanded to Louisville, KY on Hurstbourne Parkway and then in 2007 opened their Noblesville, IN location.

Jeff Kinney has been involved in operations since the age of 14, fitting pointe shoes since the age of 18. Jeff purchased Kinney Dancewear along with his sister in 1987 and they ran it side by side until 2008 when he became the sole owner. He now runs Kinney Dancewear along with his wife and dedicated coworkers where we now offer on-line ordering as well.

Kinney Dancewear has always taken great pride in providing excellent customer service to all levels of dancers and dancers’ needs. Our unparalleled, large selection of dancewear and dance supplies has been a staple since our early beginnings. Kinney Dancewear has over 6,500 square feet of retail space dedicated to helping dancers find what they need, making us one of the largest and an industry leader.

Kinney Dancewear is proud of our partnerships with the local Dance Community and our longstanding place in the market as THE place for Dancewear. Few things bring us more joy than serving another generation of dancers. Our national recognition for Pointe Shoe fitting is something we work hard to earn each and every day.

Kinney Dancewear strives everyday to help our dancers Meet the Challenge of Dance with Confidence!
