The range of dancewear available for women is as wide as the range of dance styles that women want to take part in. As well as dance clothing, there are dance accessories and footwear and each is available from various different brands, with every brand offering a different take on quality, style and fit.
One of the fundamental garments of women's dancewear is the leotard. Dance Depot, Sheree, Roch Valley, Carpezio and Bloch all offer their own branded leotards in various styles with both short and long sleeved options available.
When it comes to tutus and skirts, the brands and styles available are endless. There is everything from short, chiffon skirts to layered tutus to long, graceful skirts. Tops and dresses are equally versatile, offering everything from laid back, training outfits to beautiful performance dresses. The range of colours available is even wider than the style selection, with each brand offering their own take on these essential parts of your outfit.
Footwear is just as important as the outfit itself when you are dancing. Dance footwear needs to be superior in comfort, fit and quality to ensure that your performance is not hampered by inflexibility or discomfort. The shoe styles available include ballet shoes, jazz and tap shoes, Latin and ballroom, shoes and sneakers. As well as the shoes themselves, the ribbon on ballet shoes is an essential element, and will be changed more frequently than the rest of the shoe. Capezio offer an interesting addition to the ballet shoe, in the form of FootUndeez, which provide additional support to the parts of the foot that need it most when worn underneath ballet shoes.
As well as the extra support required in the foot area, underwear and tights are also important hidden garments. When it comes to tights, these can be far from hidden when dancing and as a result, there are numerous styles available from neutral to bright colours and even stripes and patterns. There are also shorts and briefs available offering maximum support and comfort, whilst remaining unseen throughout your dancing. Bra tops offer you extra support where you need it and yet remain subtle. It is important to match your bra top with your dancing outfit to ensure that it remains unseen.
