Ballerina SilhouetteBallet costumes are worn for dance performances, recital or competition.

Ballet CostumesWhen a ballet dance is to music other than classical music it is considered to be neo-classical, slow modern or lyrical.

Still ballet, it is a softer, more flowing form of dance than classical ballet.

There are several moves or steps used in neo-classical ballet that aren't used in classical ballet.

The neo-classical costumes reflect this different style of dance.
They have softer lines, are flowing and often have a very feminine feel to them. They allow for movement, yet at the same time are important in giving a feel to the particular dance.

The ballet costume is used more in these categories to create a whole picture, to express the emotions of the dance, to tell a story, and the dancer portrays this with the dance, music and costume.

Flowing Ballet CostumePopular styles of costumes are ballet dresses, with wide flowing skirts to knee or mid calf length.
Still in this style of ballet dress, another option is to wear a leotard with a flared skirt attached.
Many designs use a sleeveless or long sleeved leotard as a base and add skirts or loose pants to finish off.

Some simple designs can be turned into exquisite costumes with a few accessories added to them such as a beautiful piece of lace, beads and of course, sequins.

ballet shoes

Many dance this barefoot, with stirrup tights and Capezio Foot Undeez or Dance Paws. Less common, but still acceptable is to wear Jazz Dance Shoes.

The best Dance Tights to wear are pink ballet tights, but you can also wear footless, stirrup, convertible or shimmery tights.
