Tiler Peck appeared at DanceWear Corner for a special event to celebrate the launch of her new Body Wrappers clothing line. The whole event included a master class, a fashion show, and a meet and greet including an autograph session with Tiler Peck.
This Master Class was a great opportunity for young dancers to get someone on one criticises and pointers from a professional and accomplished ballet dancer such as Tiler Peck. The Master Class was also observed by the parents of the dancers as well as others who were in the store. This video shows a little bit of this one on one experience.
Tiler Peck then spent some time explaining her process and reasoning behind her new line of dancewear. Because this line was created with someone with the knowledge and experience of a lifetime lived in leotards you can be assured that comfort, wearability, and durability have all been taken into account as well as style. The line includes many unique pieces that every dancer is sure to love.
Then it was time for Tiler Peck to sit down and answer some pressing questions from the dancers followed by a meet and greet as well as an autograph session.
Overall the event was a success and proved to be an excellent opportunity for dancers to learn from and hear some insider information from Tiler Peck herself.

New York City Ballet Principal Dancer Sara Mearns teams up with worldwide dancewear manufacturer So Danca to release a line of edgy yet beautiful dancewear that every dancer is sure to love.
Named as the “Great American ballerina of the era” by Alastair Macaulay of the The New York Times, Mearns has spent nearly all of her time in a leotard since she first walked into a dance class at the age of three in South Carolina. Now as a Principal Dancer for New York City Ballet she knows how a well fitting leotard can boast a dancer’s confidence. It is because of this that she has the ability to identify quality dancewear and put forth exceptional designs in her collection with So Danca.
Known to some as a rockstar Ballerina, she wanted her collection to reflect this, but she also wanted the line to remain classic and show off the dancers form. This is why she choose the materials that she did as well as the design. The collection is called SMxSD for short and will be available in stores come January 2018. The collection includes 13 pieces all together of leotards, tops, leggings, and a romper. Even though the collection releases in January you can still preorder the whole line through Dancewear Corner by clicking here.
In an article from Informa, Sara Mearns talks about her vision of the line, how it was working with the team at So Danca, her photoshoot and commercial experience, what inspired some of the pieces and which pieces from the line are her favorite.
Here are just a few excerpts from the Informa article, but you can read the whole article by clicking here.
“Mearns says, ‘I think it’s very hard to get the fit of a leotard just right, and Só Dança has done that. The leg lines, and then how
it fits snug in all places, is amazing! I feel I am able to wear many different styles and still feel confident when I don’t have anything else on to cover up.’
She continues, “An exceptional leotard or dancewear line makes the dancer look the best they can and allows the dancer to be confident and dance their best. When I feel pretty in my outfit, I always dance better.’”
“‘We wanted to create something that the maker hadn’t seen before,’ Mearns shares. ‘The Só Dança designers in Brazil had this beautiful scalloped lace they had come up with, and we wanted to find a way to incorporate it in a fashionable way. We didn’t want to overload this first collection with too many ideas. I wanted it to be sleek but edgy. People have described me as a rockstar ballerina, so I wanted to somehow translate that but not go overboard. There is much more to come with that, so this is just a taste.’”
“‘I was so nervous the first time I put it on. I was in the bathroom by myself, and you just never know until you see it in the mirror for the first time. I am very hard on myself and very judgmental about my looks, but when I saw the leotards on me, I started getting emotional. I felt beautiful in them. I knew this would be a dream collaboration, but seeing my looks on myself for the first time really cemented it. It’s like the leotards came to life and made me want to dance!’”
“More than anything, though, Mearns is delighted to see how her collection can help young girls and women feel their best and confident.”
Sara Mearn continues to break boundaries and through her line she courageous dancers to be confident and feel beautiful and we can’t wait for her line to hit the stores.
