Our Story


Encore Dancewear has been a presence in Toms River for over 30 years. We’ve been taking care of dancers for a long time! The local dance and theatre community has grown to trust Encore with all of their needs. We at Encore value that trust a great deal. We are constantly working to provide the very best in personal care and attention to each and every one of our customers.

Sharon Wolf is the owner of Encore. If you’ve been to Encore over the past 14 years, chances are Sharon has taken care of you! Sharon has been at Encore, falling in love with the local dance community for the past 14 years. Additionally, she has been involved in the dance community most of her life. Sharon has danced throughout her school years and has been a “Dance, Gymnastics and Theatre Mom” throughout her years of raising her 1 boy and 3 girls… so… She can relate!

We know you have many choices when buying dancewear in this modern age and we hope you will enjoy the unique shopping experience that we provide to our customers. We are a business with small business values, offering the most competitive prices possible. We are a family owned and operated business. Our “staff” consists of Sharon (Mom) and Jacki (youngest (21 yr old Seton Hall student) daughter). In a pinch and during events and busy season Joel (wonderfully supportive Hubby) is also at hand and if you’re really lucky you’ll get to meet one of the other kiddos or a Grandbaby or two! It is of utmost importance to us to always treat people exactly as we would like to be treated. Customer care and personal service is what we are all about.
