Dancers Haul Fitness Haul

Here is another great haul to add under the tree. The fitness haul is amazing for any athlete. No dancer has ever said, “I’m so flexible and my strength is as good as its going to get. I’ve reached the end of the road.” Yep.. that has never happened. If there is one thing about dancers is they are always striving to push themselves to new limits and new goals. The fitness haul was designed to help dancers achieve their goals in strength and flexibility, health and as always… a little style!

Dance Tip Tuesday- DIY Costumes

DIY Dance Costumes

Competition and recital costumes can be very expensive, especially when you are in a bunch of dances. Here are some ways you can make your own costume, using basics from DanceWear Corner and adding fabric and embellishments. To start off you want to choose what type of costume you want to use… two piece, one piece, skirt, shorts… Below are some of our favorite basics.

Now that you have picked out what costume you want it’s time to decorate. You can add rhinestones, fabric, trimmings, appliques or a combination of all of them. Here are some of our favorite techniques.

Rhinestones

You can pick up rhinestones from your local craft or sewing store or you can order them online. You can cover the top completely in rhinestones or scatter them. You can create a sunbeam or ombre pattern as well. Also don’t be afraid to mix colors and sizes, it gives the costume demienson.

Fabric

Picking out the right fabric to add to a costume is very important. If you can’t sew you don’t want to get a fabric that needs the edges to be hemmed. We suggest you use a mesh lycra, or stretch lace fabric. Once you get the right fabric there is so much you can do. You can make a sash, or drape it in the back. You could attach it to the sides of the top and criss cross it in the front. One of our favorite techniques is to take a lace fabric and covering a nude bra with it.

Appliques

Another one of our favorite techniques is using appliques. Appliques come in all shapes and sizes. You can place them anywhere on the costume. They can be glued or sewed and you can add rhinestones to give the costume some shine.
