Dancewear by Design
Diana Root is the owner of DanceWear by Design, located 264 S. Carbon Avenue, 637-5733.
A graduate of Orem High School, Root took design classes at Brigham Young University while she worked for MiniWorld, a clothing factory for girls dresses.
Root worked for MiniWorld for over five years, and after moving to Price she did custom sewing. Soon it became an operation for outfitting costumes for local dance teachers, drill teams, the high school choir, ballet groups, and cheerleaders. Eventually she found herself creating for out-of-town dance groups, the University of Utah, Cyprus High School, Olympus High School, UVSC, Orem High School and others.
"I design and sew all my creations and have over 34 years experience in manufacturing and design," explained Root. She also adds, "I am grateful for the support of the community. I really enjoy being creative and having them support me in my passion."
Diana also started her own aerobic business in 1980, and has been teaching for 24 years while teaching at CEU for the last 12 years. Root holds three national certifications in aerobics including one from A.F.A.A. and is certified in kickboxing as well.
