At DanceWear Corner, we know dance dads. In fact, our President and Owner is a Dance Dad himself (and a Dance Husband.)
Jon DeMott and his wife Rosemary opened the first DanceWear Corner location in Kissimmee, Florida in 1996. At the time, the owner of a local dance studio approached his wife Rosemary about taking over a small dancewear business. His wife Rosemary taught at the studio and they decided to go for it. What started out as a few leotards in the corner of the studio, has grown into the largest Dance Superstore in the Central Florida area and one of the largest in the country.
DanceWear Corner is only part of what makes Jon a Dance Dad, however. While dedicated to outfitting dancers, Jon is a devoted husband and father to two successful young men. His oldest son Jonathan Jr. works for the Florida State University Athletics Department, Go ‘Noles. His youngest son Jason also works in the dance business, at DanceWear Corner by day and teaching dance at night, alongside mom, Rosemary.
As you can see, dance isn’t just a business at DanceWear Corner, it’s a way of life. So from all of us here, we wish all the Dance Dads a Happy Father’s Day!
Dance Dads, the next time you’re in Orlando’s only Dance Superstore, stop by to say hello to Jon and the family.
