Meet our Owner


My name is Leonela Hernandez, founder of rutte Dance Apparel! I graduated form Belheaven University with a BFA in Musical Theatre in May of 2020, and I started this project in 2019 before our world was shut down, due to COVID-19. I have always been a plus size performer who had a hard time finding active wear for dance class, gym, or to even wear out. I took a pause on this project due to the pandemic, and I decided to make this dream happen back in October of 2021. After a whole year of hard work, I can say, I couldn't be more proud to bring rutte into the world. I hope you love it and enjoy it as much as I do and get ready for new launches!
Con mucho amor,
