Girl's Dance Leotards
It can be difficult to find a wide range of dance leotards for girls and children. You can consider a wide range of materials and styles to find an option to suit your needs.
What Are the Factors to Consider When Selecting a Girl's Dance Leotard?
When selecting a leotard it's important to consider the fit, material and style of the leotard to make a good choice.
- Materials used: The materials you find in girls leotards are most commonly lycra and spandex. These materials provide a good level of stretch in the fabric to make it easier to put the leotard on, and to perform dance routines.
- Fit of the leotard: The leotard should fit correctly, which generally means it needs to fit tightly. This means it does not get in the way of dancing for the performer and makes the movements of the performer more obvious to a crowd.
- Style of the leotard: You will also need to consider the style you prefer for the leotard, and whether you want long sleeves or short sleeves. Furthermore, gymnastics leotards may not offer what an instructor wants in her students' dress code.
What Are the Styles of Girl's Dance Leotards?
Every dancer has different needs in their performances and different styles will suit particular styles of dance more than others. You should consider the following to make a good choice:
- Colour and print
- Length and skirt
- Style of sleeves
Some will be more appropriate for certain styles of dance. The best way to be certain of this is to consider the preferences of your child's dance instructors, but also other elements like the weather and what range of movement they need.
What Can a Dance Leotard Be Worn For?
There a few scenarios where childrens dancewear is appropriate to wear, and its important to consider the type of dance or performance when selecting the girl's leotard. Common ballet leotards might differ, style wise, from those you need for jazz or tap dancing. What's more, pairing a dance leotard with other layers (like ballet tights) might serve as great fitness wear for an afternoon of active exercise and play.
