Arden

Arden began dancing at age 8 at Studio Fusion in Huntington Beach, CA. She dove right into 14 competitive teams and a solo her first year and loved every minute of it! She continued the competitive route until high school where now she dances on the Cathedral Catholic dance team in San Diego. During those 6 years of competitive dance, Arden searched and purchased tons of dancewear from other brands. Usually they came in and they were ‘ugly, terrible fit, washed and threw away’, or the fabric was so thin or shiny it was like paper—we decided to do it on our own. Arden founded Blue Water with the vision of high fashion, quality dancewear that SHE loves and would wear. We take pride in and took a long time sourcing our hearty fabric that stands up to literally hundreds of washes, our manufacturer who is pickier than even we are in terms of quality of product, and in our styling that is comparable to high fashion brands and from where we take our inspiration. And we take pride in the fact that even though it is more expensive, we are beyond proud that we are 100% USA MADE. Arden also fits every piece we produce, wearing to practice and ensuring that it is perfect for the athlete in every dancer. We formed this company because of her and are beyond blessed that it has taken us well beyond our mission and dreams.

Why We Love Her:

Our heart and soul. Arden is the reason we created Blue Water. She is our creative leader, our positivity guru, our driving force, our biggest critic and our greatest champion. she inspires us, leads us and keeps us moving forward. not only is she a beautiful dancer, but she’s a beautiful person. Everyone who meets her falls in love. her inner light shines and will guide Blue Water well into the future. Our original Blue Girl.
