Ivivva is word created to embody the strength and beauty of all girls.  This past weekend, my daughter had the chance to attend the Ivivva Dreams Dance Convention, hosted for free by the Chicago Ivivva stores at the famous Hubbard Street Theater.  The girls spent the afternoon with some of the best teachers in Chicago learning contemporary, jazz, hip hop and ballet. ivivva dreams dance conventionBut more than just dance combinations, Ivivva Dreams was about setting goals and being inspired.  Each dancer received an Ivivva tank, snacks and paper to journal where they see themselves in 5 years, what inspires them and what keeps them from attaining their goals.

Ivivva is the children's branch of Lululemon Athletica.  Ivivva focuses clothing and accessories that allow girls to perform their best in all activities.  Stores have easily moveable fixtures and can be quickly transformed into spaces for community run clinics, dance classes, a yoga studio or hold a neighborhood event.  Ivivva's strong ties to the community are what sets them apart from typical clothing brands.


This was Ellie's 3rd dance convention in a row.  Yes, every weekend of October has been spent at a dance convention!  But this was by far her favorite.  The energy of the faculty for the day was contagious.  Setting goals for dance and life - like training to get her pointe shoes and being a good friend - created an inner positivity that I haven't seen before.  After Ivivva Dreams, my girl is ready to take on the world!

As I mentioned, each dancer received an Ivivva tank to wear to the convention.  The quality is amazing.  The fabric is soft with a built in shelf bra (not that we are needed that around here yet, but for the more mature dancers, it was a nice feature.  Ivivva also gave Ellie a pair of shorts and she purchased a headband at the trunk show following the event.  The shorts fit perfectly.  The waist band is comfortable and stylish.  The headbands have a nonslip strip that keep them in place after a full day of dancing.

As always, Ivivva events are complimentary.  To learn more about Ivivva and what events are coming up in your area, visit Ivivva.com.


Thanks to Ivivva for including my little dancer in their fabulous dance day!  All opinions are honest and my own.
