Gaynor Minden opened its doors in the Chelsea section of Manhattan in 1993. They had one employee and one product, the patented pointe shoe made from high-tech materials that Eliza Minden had developed over the preceding eight years.
Today, they serve several hundred dance-specialty stores world wide, and Planet Dance are delighted to be one them. Gaynor Minden pointe shoes are worn by almost every major professional ballet company in the world including American Ballet Theatre, England's Royal Ballet and Russia's Kirov Ballet.
The Gaynor Minden collection has expanded repeatedly to accommodate their rapid growth and a wide range of new products including extensions to the original line of pointe shoes, and Planet Dance are delighted to bring you a wonderful range of both dance shoes and garments.
