About Us

The Dance Bag was founded in 2001 in Ridgewood, NJ. We are currently enjoying our second decade
in business at our new superstore, located at 485 Route 17 South in Paramus, NJ. TDB is owned and
operated by Sandy Cocuzza, who has thirty plus years of business and management experience as
well as a lifelong dance experience. The Dance Bag was conceived as a true one-stop-shop which
specializes in full service and product for the performer. We have quickly become the place to shop
for your entire dancewear, skate, yoga, exercise, and performance needs. Our product offerings range
from shoes, leotards, tights, custom costumes, funky dance clothes, hair-wear, jewelry, art, tchotchkes,
make-up, and lots lots more!! We recently installed TDB Designs and Manufacturing, which is a part
of our business that is dedicated to cutting edge, customized team and studio gear. We are thrilled to
anounce that TDB Designs has created original pridewear for some of the countries largest and most
prestigious competitve dance & cheer teams. Check out the link above, 'TDB Designs', for more info!
