The very best dance costumes for kids are those that are constructed with the same high-quality standards of design that are found in adult dance costumes. Just because a dancer is young, doesn’t mean he or she should ever settle for a poorly designed dance costume.
Working with young dancers means understanding their sensitivities and expectations. A young ballerina has many dreams! Going out on stage during a performance with an ill-fitting dance costume can ruin that dream and restrict the young dancer from moving freely.
What should a ballet mom look for in a dance costume for kids? Start by finding a reputable dance costume designer that has experience creating dance costumes for kids. The designer with attention to detail will always make sure a dance costume has these characteristics:
- A good fit. The costume is designed to fit the child now and not when they grow into it.
- Comfort. A dance costume should not scratch, poke, or pinch the wearer.
- Ease of movement. A beautiful costume that doesn’t allow full range of motion is useless during a performance.
- Professional appearance. A beautifully designed dance costume is proportional to the young dancer’s body shape and makes the young dancer appear just as professional as an older, more experienced dancer.
Having a dance costume with these characteristics will guarantee proud ballet moms and very happy young dancers with their ballet dreams intact…
