BLOCH. OUR STORY…
BLOCH… THREE GENERATIONS DEDICATED TO DANCE!
Founded in Sydney, Australia in the early 1930’s by Eastern European immigrant Jacob Bloch, a craftsman who began his career producing exceptional hand-made pointe shoes for revered ballet dances worldwide. So successful was Jacob that a full dance range quickly followed. Since that time, the rapid growth of Bloch’s reputation has established the brand as one of the most trusted in the industry.
Today, guided by the third-generation of Bloch’s family, the company’s international recognition has marked it as a leader in the technical dance market. More recently, the introduction of a dance inspired fashion line for the street has been an instant success worldwide.
Our design features, material selection and construction are all linked to dance. As the industry leader, our dance DNA is found in every pair of shoes we make.
Quite simply, our business is all about dance!
IT ISN’T OUR JOB. IT’S OUR LIFE.
Our respect level for the artists we serve is infinite. If we can contribute to the dancers artistry in any small way, by making their life easier then we have achieved our goal.
We confess to a secret jealousy in not being able to achieve the level of artistic integrity of many of our clients. Nevertheless, we are at least artisans working in a beautiful field. We do not pollute, we are not deal makers, we are simply at our best when we can engineer the most suitable product to meet our dancers utilitarian desires.
In our ranks there are ex-professional dancers and our Bloch All Stars are some of the world’s leading professional dancers.
Quite simply, Bloch’s dance DNA is in every product we make. Today Bloch is fulfilling the promise made by its founder all those years ago.
“CYD? has been a great way to connect with our customers and other industry people doing similar work and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience to be at the heart of all things dance. Fantastic networking exposure and a great source of forecast for brands. Each event has inspired us with new ideas and how we can make an impact in our own organisation. What Matt and Tom have created and established is a very special annual interactive dance exhibition that the UK’s leading dance schools and dancers look forward to attending each year. Very well organised, always enthusiastic and a helpful team to work with. CYD? 2018, let’s go!”
