For Ballet

First stop: leotard. Leotards are generally made from a stretchy material and can come in many different colors and designs. Some have velvet, some have rhinestones, some are neon pink, but every ballet dancer owns one.

If you decide to purchase a leotard, begin by finding out if the dance class you are planning to take has any requirements on what type of leotard you should buy. Some studios request that leotards are kept as basic as possible and some ask that you wear certain colors to certain classes. Once you have checked on the requirements, head to your nearest dance store. When trying on leotards, be sure not to buy them too big or too small. If they are too big they might slide around, and if they are too small they can constrict your movement and even be a little painful.

The next item on your list should be a pair of tights. These also come on hundreds of different colors and designs, so, again, check with your studio before buying any to be sure they meet studio requirements. Just like with a good leotard, your tights should not be too big or too small.

For Other Dance Forms

Most other dance forms are much less strict when it comes to clothing; however, each type generally has its own distinct style. For jazz, for example, you probably only need to add a pair of black jazz pants to your ensemble and you are good to go. However, with something like hip-hop, dancers generally prefer to toss on T-shirts and sweatpants. If you are considering taking another type of dance class outside of ballet, just ask around a bit to find out what that studio prefers you to wear.
