WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT
1) Product development:
Our in-house designer creates our Move Dance and Alegra products through meticulous market research and expert knowledge. We work closely with our models and other dancers within the industry to understand what's important to them in their dancewear.
We carefully select our manufacturers then visit our factories to ensure the highest standard of garment. The best performing fabrics are selected to suit the functionality of the product, but we also seek out new and innovative fabrics to manufacture. The product development team watch over the lifecycle of our products, starting with their conception to final quality assurance checks.
Quality assurance ensures that all products that we sell - particularly under the Move Dance and Alegra brands - have the intended fit, fabric, colours and follow a critical path to guarantee that the product life cycle is approved to the company's standards and procedures. We confirm this through fabric and factory inspections, and our in-house quality control team. The team also monitors returns rate and customer reviews to understand customers' expectations of fit and quality, then uses this knowledge to improve styles when we repeat their manufacturing.
Our buying team has worked closely with trusted suppliers over the years, and is often approached to establish links with new suppliers globally. The team strives to find products that meet the demands of our dancers at the best value and quality. We only work with manufacturers who are the best at what they do and regularly sample their products for quality assurance.
Our buyers tailor their range hunts to key areas of our customers' interests. They're always looking to add new, exciting lines and products to our range to cater for all dance styles, ages, and genders. The products that we offer are always on-trend at competitive prices. Attending trade fairs, loving dance, and being in constant touch with dancers and suppliers ensures that we always know what's hot.
3) Fulfilment team:
The fulfilment team spring into action when we receive an order to add the final touches before shipping. They carefully and accurately pick and pack our dancers' purchases, and are motivated to get the customer's order to them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Every team member cares about the quality of the packaged product, ensuring they get every aspect of the order right, and on average dispatching all orders well within 24 hours. To make sure we always meet the needs of our dancers, we carry deep stock levels to ensure first pick availability.
We only choose reliable delivery partners that offer the best standard of service for our parcels' destinations such as Royal Mail, DHL, DPD and Colissimo. The speed of delivery is determined by the type of service chosen, yet our customers always have the choice for fast delivery. The team have constant communication with our couriers so we always know the status of orders, and some couriers that we work with also offer order updates through text messages to customers directly. In the event of returns, the team responds efficiently within our specified returns period, and secures the desired outcome for the customer.
