In 1982 Franck Raoul-Duval, a 25 year-old Frenchman with a passion for dance created a new type of ballet shoe. After numerous trials and adjustments he came up with an innovation that changed the life of dancers everywhere. The split-sole ballet slipper, fitting the foot like a glove, was born. First dedicated to Professional Ballet dancers, it was called the “Pro”. Since then, dancers from all levels have used it very successfully.

Sansha now manufactures an extensive range of dancewear and dance shoes, and has become a leading global brand present in the dance capitals of the world. From ballet to jazz, hip-hop to flamenco, ballroom to tap, Sansha is always closely collaborating with dance professionals, teachers and store owners.
