Children’s dancewear varies depending on the style of dance and whether it is performance or rehearsal-wear. In ballet little girls wear pretty tutus and leotards; both of which make them look similar to grown-up ballet dancers. On the other hand, boys wear leotards, tights, or pants for ballet. They also look similar to adult ballet dancers of the same gender.
Some of the most important pieces of children’s dancewear are the shoes. In ballet the shoes are slip on ballet shoes or toe shoes. For other forms of dance the shoes are often soft and comfortable to wear.
One of the most common pieces of children’s dancewear is a leotard. Leotards are worn during almost all forms of dance. But some of the most common forms of dance where children wear a leotard are: ballet, jazz, tap, and lyrical.
