DOMYOS

DECATHLON's dance brand offers useful suggestions for your dance practice.

A particular ballet outfit is often recommended or even required by ballet teachers. It is generally different for lessons (training) and performances (galas, shows). The minimum items required are a leotard, tights and ballet slippers or demi-pointe shoes.

LEOTARDS

There are different types of leotards:

●     Leotards with wide straps: these are the most basic and are common for toddlers.

●     Leotards with narrow straps: often more sophisticated and elaborate, with straps that sometimes cross over at the back.

●     Short-sleeved leotards: they are warmer, elegant, plain and comfortable.

●     3/4-sleeved leotards: they are also warm and make your arms look slender while remaining elegant.

TIGHTS

Tights are essential in ballet as leotards are never worn with bare legs. Opt for light-coloured tights in white or pink. They are worn under the leotard and help keep it from slipping.

DEMI-POINTES

For footwear, leather demi-pointes are recommended for beginners of all ages. These sturdy models come with full soles that support the foot, which is vital for beginners.

A wrap-over cardigan is also useful for dancers.

It will keep their muscles warm before and after class!
