Every year, thousands of hopeful, young ballet students enter dance competitions. These young dancers need all the edge they can get to compete for the winning spot. That includes having a flattering, well-fitted dance costume that functions perfectly on stage.
Can you imagine how nervous and excited a dancer must feel when she is preparing to dance in a competition? Not only does she have to rehearse her part until her ballet technique is near perfection, but her appearance will be judged as well. That can be quite a lot of pressure for a young dancer!
Experienced ballet costume designers are used to working with dance competition students and do much to alleviate nervousness over appearance. The young, beautiful ballerina in the photo above made a wise choice to have her competition tutu designed by Costume Creations.
Everything comes together as far as design to give this ballerina a great start to winning a competition. Notice the impeccable fit of the bodice on this dancer. Every seam on the bodice is placed to enhance natural curves giving her a beautiful shape. The embellishment placement on the bodice and tutu skirt give what I call the “magical” effect. There is never too much nor too little embellishment on the most regal of ballet costumes. Experienced designers have that “magic” touch with embellishments.
Combined with the magical appearance of her costume, and her ballet technique, the young ballerina in the photo above won a bronze medal in her dance competition. Mom must have been proud. Congratulations!
