Hello Readers

We feel it is most important to tell you about who Alvas Barres Floors Mirrors is as a company..

Our history began with a love story between Rosalie and Alva. They met in 1940 while dancing at the Miramar Hotel and started their career as a dance team in 1941. The same year they were married. In 1952, Alva built Rosalie her own beautiful dance studio and theatre in San Pedro, California, USA. Over 30 years ago, Alva retired and passed the company to his son, Matt.

Combining the tradition started by his parents with Matt’s inventive, economical and enthusiastic spirit, Alvas Barres Floors and Mirrors was born.

Currently the largest manufacturer of wood ballet barres, as well as one of the top three manufacturers of Marley-type flooring in the United States. To this day, we continue to run as a small business, with that “mom and pop” feel. Our commitment is to provide superior customer service. Our staff takes great pleasure in ensuring that our customers get exactly what they need. We also provide recommendations and technical support both nationally and internationally.

Today, our team continues to look for ways to share and inspire others with the same love and passion for dance that our founders began the company with.

This blog will be a testament to just that. Here we will speak about the dance world, our products, and will do our best to educate the reader, giving them confidence in their purchases- whether with our product or not. So, stay tuned for advice, interesting facts (or at least we think they are interesting), upcoming events and all things dance.
