If one is recognized by one’s clothes then a dancer who looks like one goes part of the way in convincing people that they are a dancer. If apparel proclaims the person, a change of apparel proclaims a different person. What better idea than to change into ballet clothes and feel like a dancer? The dancer’s attitude in class will be one of elegance and confidence. Proper dance clothes will also teach students discipline, helping with overall focus and energy. By “dressing the part,” dancers feel like dancers.
In a traditional ballet class room, black and only black leotards are the norm. Pink tights sometimes along with a skirt totally completes the dress. Pink ballet shoes that fit properly are essential.
Dressing in black leotard and pink tights ensures that the teacher will be able to see a dancer’s alignment and positioning. The teacher needs to be able to see a dancer’s mistakes. Baggy clothing can mask bad habits, making corrections impossible.
There is no better treat for a teacher to look into a mirror and see a class dressed in black leotard and pink tights. Looking into the mirror seeing several different colors of leotards and tights just makes for disorganization .
