Dance and Exercise Supply Terms

Dancing is a great form of exercise that's fun to learn and is enjoyed by both children and adults. Because there are so many different forms of dance, the types of supplies and apparel required for each style can vary greatly. But whether you're learning belly dancing for fun or learning competitive ballroom dancing, you're going to need the right apparel and supplies. After all, you wouldn't want to wear a ballet tutu when you are tap dancing. Wearing the right clothing for your dance workout makes it easier to move around and keep you from getting distracted by accessories when you should be concentrating on your moves. After all, you won't want to be wearing ballet shoes for ballroom or belly dancing! Here are some common dance clothing and costumes you'll want to be familiar with.

  • Ballet Bar - It's a simple, but essential part of every ballet workout, the wooden bar that runs along a mirror in the studio. Every ballet practice begins with exercises along the bar.
  • Ballet Shoes - Ballet shoes are simple, canvas or silk slippers with a thin, but sturdy leather sole. Along with the tutu, they are the most recognizable dance equipment.
  • Leotard - A form fitting one-piece outfit that covers up the torso, but leaves the legs free. They are actually named after the man who is credited with originally designing them, Jules LĂ©otard.
  • Pointe Shoes - Thought they're frequently confused with standard ballet shoes, pointe shoes are quite different. They're reinforced with a thick leather sole and a toe insert that help ballet dancers perform complicated jumps and pirouettes.

    When it comes to choosing exercise and dance apparel, there are many options to choose from. Whether you want comfortable active wear for fitness classes or a leotard and tap shoes for your next dance class, you can find a plethora of options at wholesale discount stores and online. Workout wear has become big business as more men and women learn about the health benefits of exercise, but not all apparel and supplies are right for every type of fitness class. It is important to identify your specific exercise needs and determine the best fit in workout wear to ensure your apparel does not detract from your fitness regimen. Whether you are heading to jazz, ballet or a ballroom dance class, the gym holding the lessons may be temperature controlled. To ensure you remain comfortable throughout your class, layer your apparel with a leotard, a shirt and jacket. That way, you can remove clothing as the instructor's workout gets your body heat rising. Pants can also be worn over shorts and tights to keep you warm as you travel to and from the gym. Layered apparel also works for outdoor exercise, allowing you to workout in just about any weather. Cotton apparel is a popular choice for dance and exercise apparel, because it can absorb moisture during your fitness class. Look for supplies that advertise extra wicking, since this feature draws moisture away from the body and keeps you cooler and more comfortable during dance or exercise. Shoes should also breathe well and be exceedingly comfortable throughout your tango class or exercise session. Both wholesale and retail stores offer a wide range of clothing, supplies and shoes to allow the best fit for both men and women.
