A Wayzata business gets a chance to "shine" tonight on a popular cable series.

"Dance Moms," which airs at 7 p.m. Tuesdays on Lifetime, will showcase at least two costumes designed by Crystal Couture, a suburban store that opened in 2005.

For those not familiar with the reality series, it takes place in Pittsburgh, where dance-studio owner Abby Lee Miller helps train young hoofers. Crystal co-owner Deb Blankenship said Miller visited her shop this past January when she was in town to help judge a dance competition.

She shopped for nearly an hour and picked up at least 20 different costumes, including a" Les Miz"-peasant type number and a sparkly jazz outfit, both of which will be featured this evening.

Blankenship said she doesn't know how many more of her purchases will be featured on the series, which is now in its third season.
