My name is Giancarlo Gabellini, originator of Gabellini Dance Shoes. Gabellini is
a dance shoe company that started in Montreal, Canada but now operates and warehouses
in New York. We offer dancers a dance shoe that is unique in styling and form. I
am a salsa dancer but strictly for fun and to enjoy the health benefits and social
aspect of the dance community.
The idea for dance shoes came to me after a year of taking Salsa lessons and I wanted
to find shoes. After shopping around I realized there were few options. I would
not wear a jazz slipper that offers neither comfort nor style and the standard ballroom
latin shoe was out of the question. I have owned businesses all of my life so production
and manufacturing are second nature, the decision was obvious, to design my own
dance shoes. Experienced
in styling through in garment industry I simply designed shoes for men that I would
wear and fashion forward styles for salseras, that formula continues to be successful.
80% of our styles are available for women who usually come looking for comfort after
a long weekend of workshops and social dancing.
After launching at my first congress in 2005 the shoes were a huge success with
instructors, performers and social dancers. I enthusiastically expanded the line
with new styles and colors. Salsa is not like other dances, we have our own style,
music and fanatically enjoy social dancing. We deserve dance shoes to match our
The saying goes
"if you want to be successful do something you're passionate about".
Building this business allows me to be a part of the salsa community and traveling
allows me to dance and meet people across North America and Europe.
By attending over 40 Salsa Congresses I get great feedback from the best dancers
in the world so my shoes are continuously being improved with new features. Gabellini
Dance Shoes are also making inroads in other forms of dance such as West Coast Swing,
Hustle and Ballroom.
We have also been expanding into Europe to put Gabellini Dance Shoes on the feet
of anyone who loves to dance. We promote our shoes at all the Salsa Congress across
North America, if not in person our representatives will give you the same service
as I do. Dance studios, instructors and performers throughout North America do a
great job promoting Gabellini Dance shoes.
