Home Pop Culture Fashion Danskin


Danskin dance apparel got its big break after movies like Fame and Flashdance made their big-screen debut in the early 80s.

Danskin offered legwarmers, tights, swimsuits, dance skirts, leotards, dance shoes, and even headbands.

When Jazzercise and aerobics became the craze after Olivia Newton-John‘s 1981 hit single Physical and Jamie Lee Curtis’ starring role in Perfect, Danskin offered pastel colours like baby pink, teal and sky blue.
