Few things are as magical as a new tutu. But what goes into the creation of this iconic ballet costume? We followed a National Ballet of Canada Swan Lake tutu—made for first soloist Emma Hawes'debut as Odette/Odile—from sketch to stage.
Happy Halloween, dance friends! Wearing costumes is part of our job description, so when we get the chance to create our own, it's no surprise that we get a little #extra (in the best way, of course). Check out some of our favorite dancers' spooktacular ensembles.
So, it's Monday. And that means the struggle is super real right now. Which also means that just like everything else on Mondays, your hair is probably not cooperating. Which is a big problem for dancers, who need it to just. stay. put. through even the roughest of combos.
News flash, guys: Halloween is LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY. We know how easy it is to get caught up in the endless cycle of school, rehearsal, rest, and repeat. And if you're nodding to yourself right now, thinking "#Storyofmylife," we feel you—and we're here to help. Behold, our favorite dance-movie-inspired Halloween costumes that you can most definitely pull together by Tuesday!
