Ballinvilla - Today, you’ll not find it on any map, but this long-forgotten location in County Mayo came to America with a proud group of immigrants who called it home. We adopted it for our company name as a way of expressing our mission to bring the finest products from overseas (and the US) to our customers here. For the Irish dancer, Ballinvilla means quality shoes and accessories. Every item on our website is selected for its ability to meet the performance standards of the most dedicated recreational and competitive dancer.
Our company grew out of one family’s life-long commitment to the Irish Dance community. We hope it reflects the devotion and love we put into each and every feis we attended over the years with our daughter, and the pride we felt as she moved up through the various levels of competition. Like other families, we had to sacrifice to provide her with what she needed to perform at her best. We learned how and where to economize and, even more important, when and where not to. We became firm believers in the concept that quality is often the best value - particularly when it comes to the dancer’s most important tool, his or her shoes.
