Long Time Customer

“Grand Jeté couldn't be a better resource, or guilty pleasure, for anyone who needs to move their feet and DANCE!”


Professional Dancer

“I have been going to Grand Jeté since I was a tiny two-year-old 'ballerina.' I hopped and bopped around in a little pink outfit and ballet slippers and thought I was obviously the real deal. Well, Grand Jeté took me from that phase of my ballet life to the professional one, and it's never disappointed me."


"Grand Jete has been a wonderful Scottish Highland dance resource - helping us fit jig shoes and most recently, with pulling together a gorgeous choreography outfit. Thank you!"

Jenni Linge

"Adrea was fit for her first pair of point shoes today. Staff was amazing! Very knowledgable, patient, & kind! They also understood the excited moms need to take photos of firsts! Thank you so much and look forward to working with you in the future!"

Stacia Lynch

"Stopped in today for the first time to get shoes for my daughter in three genres. She has very hard feet to fit and we have always had trouble at our local store. The staff at Grand Jete were fantastic! They were able to pull the correct sizes in all three pairs if shoes on the first try!! Their knowledge and understanding of the products and how to fit a dancer correctly is amazing! Thank you for the wonderful experience! We will absolutely make a trip back!"

Tera Koxlien Gullicksrud
