Dress Up & Dance is a costume and dancewear shop in St Albans. Previously known as Funzone Fancy Dress, it was taken over from the previous owners by four local friends in December 2019, modernised and given a new fun and fresh brand and look.

We are the only traditional fancy dress and dancewear shop for many miles, a treasure trove of beautiful costumes for hire as well as a wide range of adults’ and children’s fancy dress clothing, festival-wear and accessories for sale.

The dance and gymnastics range has been expanded and now covers all RAD regulation dancewear and accessories, tap, ballet and jazz shoes, as well as many styles of gymnastics leotards and shorts. We have tights and hair accessories too. We are delighted to source specific dance shoes and clothing if we don’t currently stock them – please ask!

We sell coloured contact lenses, theatrical and prosthetic make up and a huge range of wigs, beards and moustaches. We stock both character masks and masquerade masks, and fancy dress hats and animal heads and faces. We have bucket hats, visors, funky glasses, bumbags and garlands. In fact, we have such a huge range of goodies, it would be impossible to list them all!

We are a friendly bunch and we pride ourselves on helping each customer find something fabulous to suit his or her requirements, be it a full Mad Hatter costume or a stylish string of 20s pearls… To us, dressing up should be fun for everyone – it doesn’t mean having to look silly (unless you want to!) or feel self-conscious. You can look stylish and feel fabulous! See our Testimonials page for some lovely comments from our customers.
