DanceWear Corner Spotlight Dancer Lauren Mortimer

Lauren Mortimer did a beautiful photo shoot with Jessica Wallis and Alexis Ziemski from Ballet in the City, but we wanted to know a little bit more about her.    

1. What did you love about the experience?

I was honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Dancewear Corner and Ballet in the City for a photo shoot to model dancewear.  I loved modeling and posing in beautiful dancewear and accessories outside, while it snowed.  Jessica Wallis and Alexis Ziemski are awesome to work with and we had fun traveling to a greenhouse for the photoshoot too.  Alexis is an amazing photographer! It’s an experience that I will never forget.


2. What challenges have you overcome in dance and how has that made you a better dancer?

One of the biggest challenges that I had to overcome in dance was four years ago.  I broke my foot five weeks before my studio’s recital.  I was in a boot cast for 3 ½ weeks and had little time to rehab my foot before the recital.  I managed to strengthen my foot and perform in seven numbers.  This injury taught me to focus, even more, on proper technique.  More ballet classes make a stronger dancer!

3. What they liked about the dancewear?

Dancewear Corner provided leotards, tights, Capezio leggings, and other accessories from “Crushing It” the Nutcracker Collection including a white crop tee, bag, white tumbler, and lip balm for the photoshoot.   The dance attire was beautiful, stylish, and most important, easy to move in.  The Nutcracker Collection is perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  I love all of the items!



4. What’s next for you in the world of dance?

In the coming year, I plan to attend more Ballet in the City master classes.  I am preparing for spring dance competitions, our dance studio’s recital, and a trip to NYC.  Thank you to Dancewear Corner and Ballet in the City for selecting me for this project.  I had so much fun!

What Should I Wear To A Dance Convention

Dance conventions can be exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time. They’re a great place to meet and connect with choreographers and other inspiring dancers. These connections are extremely important because one day you could find yourself working with a choreographer that you met at a convention. So you will want to make a good first impression to everyone in attendance as well as stand out from the crowd. That’s where your outfit choice comes in.

Bra Tops

It can get pretty hot in a room full of dancers all vying for there own space to dance. That’s why a fun and comfortable bra top is a good starting place for your outfit-of-the-day. Something brightly colored can catch the choreographer’s eye, then all you have to do is let your personality shine. But no matter the color you pick, the most important thing is that you feel great in your clothes. So whether that is a black bra top or a yellow one, you can feel free to dance your heart out. If you need any inspiration for what bra tops to wear you can click here.  



Boy Shorts

Boy shorts can also be a great way to combat the heat of the room as well as show off your personality. A plain top and brightly colored shorts can just as easily bring attention your way as a matching top and bottom can. It’s all about showing off your lines and showing off your confidence.  For some boy shorts click here


Let’s say that you don’t want to show that much skin. That’s okay too! A great pair of legging can go a long way in terms of comfort. Let your personality shine through everything you wear and you’re sure to make a great impression to everyone you meet. You can find leggings and dance pants here



Let’s not forget your feet here. What you put on your feet is very important in a convention. Usually, the classes are on a carpet so please whatever you do don’t dance barefoot. Some people will just wear socks, but jazz shoes are a good alternative. The footwear will depend on the class you are taking, so plan ahead and make sure you have all the shoes you need for all the classes. That means pack your tap shoes, jazz shoes, hip-hop shoe… you know what just to be on the safe side, pack all the shoes.


Now, this isn’t part of your outfit but it is important. You need something to keep your shoes, hairpins, coverups, water bottle, and other accessories that you brought all together. Too many times things are lost or left behind because they fell out of a bag. So make sure that whatever bag you bring is big enough for all your things. If you don’t have a bag click here to find some. 


More important than what you choose to wear is continuing to wear it throughout the day. If you choose to wear a blue tank top keep the tank top on, even if it gets hot. Choreographers end up associating the dancer with what they are wearing so if you take away the tank top, the Choreographers will likely forget what they thought of your dancing because they didn’t see Blue Tank Top after the water break. Overall no matter what you wear, wear it with confidence, a smile, and let your dancing do the rest.
