From The Beginning
Being a home economics major in college provided Geri Slavin with
the training and creativity necessary to produce quality garments.
She would design and sew clothing for her 3 little girls growing up.
They would be decked out for every holiday and family event in a
Geri Slavin original. Raising these 3 little girls become a
full time job until the youngest finally reached high school.
With all three in dance, the next chapter of Geri's life was about
Geri's youngest daughter starting
competing for Linda Diamond's Academy of Dance. She was on the
road traveling from competition to competition when she realized
what was missing in her daughter's dance drawer at home: fashion!
With this, S.I.T., Inc. was born.
SIT, Inc. is the parent company to
both Step in Time and Tia's Dancewear. Step in Time started
producing custom warm-ups, bags, and hats all embellished with
silk-screening and embroidery. From Step in Time emerged Tia's
Dancewear. Tia's Dancewear manufactures fashionable dance
apparel for all ages. With her artistic mind and great
business sense, Geri has turned her two companies into recognizable
brands that both parents and kids prefer.
Tia's Dancewear can be found all over the country from
California to New York and everywhere in between. In the past
3 years, Tia's has expanded internationally to Australia, United
Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Norway. In addition
to dance retail stores, Tia's can be found at most major dance
competitions nationwide including Starpower, Nexstar, Co. Dance,
Applause, Dance Caravan, Stars of Tomorrow, PDTA, American Dance
Awards, and more. . . Please call us for an official Tia's
