History

Little Robby GThe Gravity Dance name and logo came to me in March of 1993. Doodling on paper, pondering life experiences and reflecting on the magic of riding powder all day in the trees of Vermont. Feeling grateful, happy and tired, wondering... "What are these activities that influence my life's direction, my education, employment, travel adventures, connecting me to so many amazing people and beautiful places, giving me experiences and pleasures beyond words?”

Age 3, 1968, my amazing dad (ski patroller aka: the Dancing Bear) put skis on my feet, that eventually led the way to Skateboarding and Snurfers (1973), naturally gravitating me to Snowboarding (1983). The Snowboard then lured me to Surfing like trout to a mayfly. So magical, sacred and inter-connected are these sports, it occurred to me… they are all Gravity Dances! For many of us, these sacred Gravity Dances are an essentlal part of our lifestyle!

A very special book came to me in 2005 (The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho), inspiring me to merge my love for these sacred modern dances with, quality, timeless, warm, cool, comfy apparel and artistic creations that represent the dances we love to do.

Happy dancing to all the kidz of planet Earth and thank you for purchasing Gravity Dance Apparel & Creations!

OUR STORY

Gravity Dance officially started in 2005 (lifestyle clothing and creations company geared towards snowboarders,surfers,skateboarders,skiers) as a side project to other forms of employment. Selling a small line of logo embroidered fleece jackets/ vests, afew styles of hats, hoodies, t-shirts and hand crafted sterling silver pendants. Dedicated to representing the lifestyles of snowboarders, surfers, skateboarders and skiers. We're building a clothing company people can feel a soulful connection. We're building a social net work of folks fed up with the hype and who do our Dances for the Love of the Dance. We encourage and  share ways and organizations that help teach people how to Dance. We participate in teaching people how to Dance. We donate to good causes... and always looking for ways to contribute and share where we can.

We live a corporate world that primarily see's us and our Dance's as mere dollar signs, with little or no care and respect for riders and our Dances!

We're born from Love of the Dances and we're doing what we can to help keep the Soul in our Dances...

OUR MESSAGE

Brand Message: Dance for Your Soul!

Many of us... older, new, even really new school kidz have watched our "sports" become "extreme selling advertisements" for this or that. Presenting our Dances as 24/7 "extreme radness".

I have heard it first-hand of kidz quitting or not getting into it for fear of not being good enough, just put some time and effort into and "it" (Post Dance Bliss) will eventually all come together in the form of amazing fun! IT JUST DOES NOT MATTER: how many times you can spin, flip, trick... how big a cliff you can huck your body off of... how big a wave is... how fast you go, how you think your sport is better than someone else's... how many camera's are filming you... how many sponsors you have or how much the prize money is.

No doubt as we progress we take bigger calculated risks, but none of this is worth dying for or ending up brain dead paralyzed, just to win a prize, get the shot or so your pals will think you're cool... it happens more than you know or hear about. We do it for the love of the Dance, for our own personal accomplishment, well being... knowing we will Dance right up to our last years of a Fun and Full Life! To hell with "extreme" networks media, garbage energy drink companies and soul-less soul sucking corporate entities blowing up snowboarding, surfing, skateboarding and skiing into Roman theatre celebrity (and non-celebrity)death shows... all nicely packaged for you with shiny things, kewl kidz telling us "this is what its all about"... with really kewl advertisements and contests. Make no mistake, we have nothing against contests that are soulful or progression inspired from within.

Gravity Dance Owner/Founder, Rober F Graham Jr.We all wear the Dances we love to do, we hope you like what we're about and choose to support a Vermont-born and -based company with a true soul and passion for Snowboarding, Surfing, Skateboarding, Skiing!

We are a new and different clothing company, conducting business in a way that does not adhere to the ever present, rampant, greedy, corporate american business structure. We are not a subsidiary company of a mega-corporation, nor do we answer to share holders. We will Always remain steadfast in our commitment to heckle and make fun of corporate "extreme sports" ooze and people committing stupid human tricks, as deemed necessary!

Its rare for any business to start out exactly where you want to be and this applies to us too, but we're growing... Look with us to the future for new and original styles!!
