Wendy Vitelli started her career over 2 decades ago studying many different styles of dance for then choosing dance as her major in college. For 20+ years, Wendy worked at a successful local dance supply store, started part-time and worked up to full time store manager, handling all ordering, scheduling, training, supervising, and all costumes and tickets for student recitals. She also set up the online store initially, and processed all online orders from order placement to shipping products. Wendy handled all inventory procedures, customer complaints, issues, and group orders for liturgical and other performances. She also ordered pointe shoes for the ballet company, as well as fabric and other supplies needed for costuming. Wendy even found sources for ringlets and other hair pieces for Nutcracker.
Wendy’s daughter and granddaughter are both dancers, She knows a thing or two about what a dancer needs. Step Up Richboro is proud to have Wendy Vitelli on our team to provide the best pointe shoe fitting possible.
Fitting pointe shoes has become Wendy’s favorite part of working in the industry. “It is an honor to help a dancer find a shoe that suits her foot”. “Of course, we never know for sure if that is the right shoe until she wears it in a class a couple times”, Wendy states. She has even had the pleasure of fitting male dancers in pointe shoes!
