Belly Dance


“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time,  this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” 

              -Martha Graham

Theatrical and Specialty


I always tell my kids if you lay down, people will step over you. But if you keep scrambling, if you keep going, someone will always, always give you a hand. Always. But you gotta keep dancing, you gotta keep your feet moving.” 

                           -Morgan Freeman

“In order to fly, you need to let go of things that weigh you down."



​​“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.”

                          -Martha Graham



“Skating was the vessel into which I could pour my heart and soul.”

                      -Peggy Fleming 

A costume is so much more than just a garment that you wear while performing.  It is the first visual impact that you make on your audience and your judges.  The minute you walk on, a great costume should make people say “Wow, I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!”   It should draw your viewers into your performance, and it should do all that while fitting and moving perfectly.

At Illuminescent Design we know how to make great one-of-a-kind, custom designed costumes.  We make unique performance apparel and competition outfits for athletes around the world in a wide range of disciplines from Ballroom to Skating to Synchronized Swimming to Gymnastics to just about anything you can imagine.  

So browse our galleries and then contact us to see what we can do for you.



“You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang

 in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.”

                      -Merce Cunningham
