Welcome to Rochester, Michigan's newest business, Tutus and Tendus.

Tutus and Tendus is filling a much needed need for dancewear, dance shoes, and accessories in downtown Rochester.  Their grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony was on February 2, World Tutu Day (2/2, get it?).  

Owner Cindy Raffel also owns and operates 2nd Street Studio of Dance in Rochester, a non-competitive dance school teaching students from age 2 1/2 through adult.  


Tutus and Tendus is located at 120 E. University in Rochester.

Thanks, Lou!  My daughter dances, and we used to have to drive nearly half an hour to get her shoes!

Thanks, Dorie Dillard .  I hope they do well!  It's tough being a small business, and I love to shop local if possible.  I actually let my Amazon Prime expire recently so I would be more likely to support local businesses.

I'm so bummed that I missed National Tutu Day.  Mine is just in my closet gathering dust.

My granddaughter joined a ballet class 3 weeks ago. Little girls love to dance and dress up! For me, it was hard to find a store that sells specific for this type of dance. I bumped into a stranger who paved the way!

Your advertising this store will save prospective consumers who are looking a lot quicker! I hope every little child who wants to dance has a chance!

I'm sure you'll love having them nearby so you don't have to drive for ballet shoes and tutus any longer, Beth Bromund!  Great localism post and I'm sure they appreciate the kudos too!

HI Beth- it's so good to give a shoutout for a local business.  And, these are items not easily purchased on the Internet.

Beth, how adorable is this?? Takes me back in time. I don't think I ever got to wear a true tutu, because the dancework I did as a kid, was more modern dance. My granny had a dance studio, (and boy, she had the best legs!), and my 85 year old mom still does tap dancing on a regular basis. It keeps you young, both physically and mentally to recall all of those routines by heart!

Gayle, your comment about your mom brought a great smile to my face.
