Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! With the addition of our new online store, you can now purchase many of our beautiful dance merchandise options online. Our Franklin boutique will always have more in-store options than what is offered online (one of the many perks of shopping in person) but we strive to offer as many online options as possible for our out of town customers. From dance-wear, activewear, accessories and even gifts, your cyber shopping just got easier and a lot more fun!


We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm. Bellissimo is closed Sunday and Monday.
Bellissimo is conveniently located right off I-65 in the Cool Springs shopping area of Franklin, Tennessee. We are at 100 Mission Court, next to Graham’s Lighting on Cool Springs Blvd.
While Bellissimo is mainly focused on dance and fitness fashion, we also try to carry the shoes most dancers in our area need and prefer.

Unwashed and unworn merchandise may be returned to the boutique for a full refund within 10 days of purchase.

Shipping costs (if applicable) are not refunded. Note: Sale items, tights and undergarments may not be returned. Gift certificates are final sale.
Of course! You can purchase gift certificates in person at our store or by calling us at: 615-674-5484. Gift certificates cannot be replaced and sales are final.
Yes, Bellissimo offers dancewear, fashion, shoes and accessories for children 2T – Youth XL, and Adult XS – XL. Our current dance and fitness wear lines come from Portugal, Canada, Australia, Spain and all over the United States. We spend a lot of time searching all over the world for the most beautiful, high quality, cutting edge clothing for all ages because we know how important fashion is to our Nashville area dancers. Come see us!
No, certainly not. We have a great selection of fitness wear – perfect for our yoga and pilates lovers, as well any fitness buffs. Leggings and sports bras are for everyone! In addition, Bellissimo offers “Street to Studio” fashion: clothing that can be easily thrown on over leotards, sports bras and dance shorts to and from the studio, but can also be worn out and about with friends.
Unfortunately, we do not carry pointe at this time. We are, however, aware of the high demand for pointe shoes in this area and hope to carry a substantial selection in the near future. When that time comes, be assured that our employees will be fully trained in fitting pointe to provide the best fit for each and every ballerina.
You are in the right place! Nashville, and its surrounding cities and communities, is overflowing with some amazing dance studios for dancers of all ages, experience and dance styles. We would love to visit with you about your dance preferences and help steer you toward some schools that might be a good fit for you. There is also a page on our website that shows all of our area dance studios.
Absolutely! Throughout the year, we offer many sales and promotions that you can find out about via social media, so be sure to follow us on Instagram (@BellissimoDanceBoutique) and Facebook (bellissimodanceboutique). You can also find out about our great sales by signing up for our email list on the home page of our website.
Most of the items in our boutique list care instructions on the tag but in general we recommend dance and fitness wear be washed in cold water and hung or laid flat to dry. We also suggest avoiding fabric softeners as they will inhibit the fabric’s wicking abilities.
Yes, we do and we would love for you to be a part of that distribution list. Please sign-up below.

Tights, undergarments, sale and clearance items, and gift certificates are final sale. Once tights have been tried on, they are considered used. Because it is impossible to tell whether or not a package of tights has been opened or not, we do not accept tights for return. We want to be sure we are not selling used tights to our customers. Similarly, we don’t take returns on undergarments.
We would love to! Please sign up for our email list or follow us on Facebook or Instagram so we can keep you up to date with all our fun!
As we thought about who we wanted to be, the word “beautiful” kept popping up. Beautiful clothes. Beautiful shoes. Beautiful dancers. We want every dancer to know that they ARE beautiful – just the way they are. And we hope that dancing makes them feel beautiful. Bellissimo means beautiful… Be bold. Be yourself. BE BELLISSIMO.
