ADA is thrilled to now carry the Zyia Activewear line and with limited people allowed in the studio, we are excited to offer this shopping experience online! Zyia is the official activewear of the Utah Jazz Dancers and many compare the Zyia brand to Lulu and Athleta ....but at a more reasonable price! Zyia uses a 4-way stretch, compression, form, fit, and comfort to design their activewear. Tops are made with an anti-microbial fabric and they carry both adult and children sizes! This page will feature new items released weekly and popular items people love and can be used to place an order.
