Owner, Ashley Kelly, grew up dancing in the Daytona Beach area. She shopped at Dance Depot as a young dancer herself and the founder and previous owner, Shirley Van Hise, fitted her for her very first pair of pointe shoes. Her love for dance did not fade after high school, and she danced on the dance team throughout her tenure at Stetson Univeristy.
Purchasing Dance Depot has been such a blessing to Ashley and her family and it has been so exciting for her to reconnect with the dance world and give back to the local dance community. When you come into the store, there's a good chance that Mattison, her youngest, will be there to greet you with a smile. We are a family business and we can't wait to meet your dancing needs!
