Ballroom Dance Shoes, Latin and Salsa Dance Shoes, Men, and Boys and Girls

That's why, due to popular demand, we have selected (and will continue to select) only the most comfortable dance shoes for the price. We understand that to dance well, one must use a dance shoe that not only looks good with what you are wearing and performs well for its intended purpose, but most importantly fits well and is comfortable. After having road tested more than a dozen brands of shoes and over fifty individual styles, we have selected some of our favorite brands to share with you. And, we often get new styles.

Custom Designs

At International Dance Design, we believe that each person is unique. Your body style, personal taste in clothing, hair, skin and eye color, manner of movement and what you want accentuated, are all part of what make you who you are. Our goal is to enhance your best features and deemphasize slight imperfections, while allowing for expression of your personal style. Our Custom Orders create something very special just for you. For example, you may have an idea of the kind of dress you want, but, unfortunately, we do not have that particular design currently available. In these cases, we can make a completely new costume, from scratch, according to your ideas. On the other hand, if you have no idea what you want, we can offer you a design developed personally for your needs.

In addition, at International Dance Design, we minimize customization fees in order to make it easier for the "real person" to afford. Therefore, even if you don't have a celebrity's budget, you will still look like a "star" when you go out in style wearing a piece of clothing designed and created especially for you.

Visit our store to view some of the fabrics we have "in stock" and ready to use for your "perfect" outfit.

History of Stafford, TX

“The people of Stafford and their leaders have compiled a growing list of impressive and unique accomplishments. They have taken a fledging agrarian city with a few stores and many farms and transformed it into a respected, culturally diverse, well financed urbanized suburb. They have fought the powers in the state capitol, federal courts and public forums to create innovative educational, economic, social and cultural opportunities, that have gained attention, and in some instances, notoriety for doing the unpredictable. They have overcome numerous adversities and many doubters, and steadfastly pursued their stated goals. In doing so, they have adequately equipped the City of Stafford with the ability to continue to set standards for other cities to emulate, and often envy. They have built a city that runs a fiscally responsible ship, provides outstanding services, enhances a prominent infrastructure and plans and prepares well to address the many challenges that the city is likely to face in the coming years and beyond.” Mayor Leonard Scarcella

In 1820, when the land that is now Texas was under the rule of Spain, Stephen F. Austin took advantage of a Spanish offer to settle a vast area of the territory in exchange for expansive land grants. William J. Stafford became intrigued with the offer and was one of Austin's “Old 300” families that made the migration west and settled here. In 1824, Stafford was granted a league-and-a-half of land, which became known as Stafford's Point, and aided by a horse-powered cotton gin, began farming on his plantation and operating the gin to bale his and other farmers' crops in the area. It marked the beginning of the business friendly climate that remains as a trademark of Stafford today.

The prominence and influence of Stafford's Point flourished until 1836, when General Santa Ana, leading the Mexican Army, continued his invasion of Texas. After overrunning the Alamo in San Antonio, he headed for San Jacinto. He and his troops stopped in Stafford's Point for the night, and before departing on their incursion, pillaged and burned this thriving community. By 1840, settlers had returned to begin to rebuild the town. Sugar cane was gaining in stature as the preferred economic product and replaced cotton as the primary source of income for the revitalizing economy. Attracted by this expanding community, Stafford´s Point became the terminal point of the first railroad tracks built in Texas. On September 1, 1853, the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos and Colorado Railroad made its maiden twenty mile trip from Harrisburg to Stafford's Point. After a couple of years, the rails were extended westerly. Today, there are over 12,000 miles of railroad tracks in Texas.

The Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation resulted in a dynamic shift in the direction and economy of the area. By 1869, a U.S. Post Office was established bearing the new name of Stafford. Freed slaves, who established numerous small farms, became the dominant landowners. By the turn of the century, the population rose to around 300, but then began a significant decline. By 1914, only about 100 people called Stafford home. Over the next four decades, immigrants turned the tide and began to filter in. Led by a contingency of Italians looking for both business and farming opportunities, the future of Stafford began to take shape. However, sandwiched in was a raucous and, in retrospect, somewhat humorous period during the infamous Prohibition Era which featured widespread bootlegging and gambling that gave the town an image throughout the area that is still remembered with a wry smile by some of the surviving old-timers.

After World War II, the townspeople began to organize. They played a prominent role in obtaining authority from the state legislature in 1946 for the creation of the Fort Bend County Water Control and Improvement District No. 2, which provided safe drinking water and proper disposal of sanitary sewage. A year later, the Stafford Volunteer Fire Department was born. Today, the outgrowth of that organization is ranked as one of the top firefighting
