This partnership guarantees RP customers continued access to exceptional dance footwear and apparel, supporting their dance aspirations and achievements. I eagerly anticipate contributing to Bloch's leadership team in aiding in the growth and success of RP."

David Wilkenfeld of Bloch shares this enthusiasm, remarking, "Incorporating RP into our portfolio is an exciting step. We are committed to the transformative power of dance and are dedicated to upholding the brand's legacy of quality and effectiveness, while also seeking new avenues to innovate and enrich its offerings. The unique identities of the Bloch and RP brands will continue to evolve with their own individual personalities.”

The commitment to customer satisfaction remains a top priority, with both companies focused on manufacturing and delivering the quality of product and innovation that customers have become accustomed to.
