An Ultra Soft and Durable Pair of Tights For Dancers
What makes an excellent pair of dance tights? That’s the question the Inspirations team asked dancers and dance parents. The response we got was simple; a dance tight needed to be soft and durable enough to stand up to hours of practice. We took the suggestions to heart and designed the Inspirations Convertible Dance Tights. Soft to the touch and ultra-durable, our tights give a dancer the comfort and support they need to bring out their best performance!
Inspirations Convertible Dance Tights Feature:
A dancer feels most confident when they look their best. The knit waistband shapes a dancer's figure and creates a smooth line under all costumes and outfits. No more lumps, bumps or creases to get in the way of a fantastic performance!
Ultra Soft, Flexible, Breathable Fabric
The silky smooth fabric feels soft and comfortable as it hugs the dancer’s skin. Durable and flexible, the material stretches and bends with a dancer’s every move allowing them freedom of movement and expression. The breathable fabric keeps dancers cool, dry, and comfortable.
Reinforced Foot Hole
A reinforced foot hole prevents any rips or tears when transitioning the tights from footed to footless.
A reinforced gusset provides extra strength, comfort and support to our tights.
Why Dance Tights Are Important
Tights Allow Dance Teachers to Better Identify Flaws in Performance
Tights shape a dancer's form. They tighten up and elongate the leg line, allowing a dance teacher to quickly spot and correct any flaws in a dancer's performance. The faster a teacher can spot a flaw in a dancer's performance, the faster the dancer learns and progresses!
Tights Make Dance Shoes Last Longer
Are you tired of wearing out dance shoes? Tights extend the lifetime of a dance shoe by creating a barrier between a dancer's foot and the soft sole of the shoe. Tights eliminate the friction from bare feet that wears down the inside of the dance shoes.
Convertible tights help keep dancer’s healthy by offering a layer of protection for the feet that stops the spread of germs and fungus between dancers. Wearing tights also creates an extra layer underneath a bodysuit. Tights are washed after every use, while, realistically, a bodysuit might be worn 2-3 times before it gets washed again.
When to Wear Dance Tights
All Skill Levels, from Beginner to Professional Dancers, Wear Tights
It doesn’t matter if it’s a dancer’s first time in the practice studio or their tenth stage performance; all dancers need a high-quality pair of dance tights. Our dance tights offer the comfort and durability required by beginners and professional dancers.
Dance Performance Tights Need to Be High Quality
High-quality tights are the first step in making sure a dancer looks and feels their best during a performance. The smooth nylon-spandex blend fabric glides softly across the skin, keeping a dancer comfortable during even long performances. These ultra-stretchy tights smooth out the leg line, eliminating any creases, seams, or folds. Our tights come in two colors: Pink and Beige. Both colors are perfect for performance and are virtually indistinguishable from tights from the major dance brands.
Dance Practice Tights Need to Be Inexpensive
A dancer gives their all in practice. Long hours of repetitions are hard on tights, and purchasing new tights can quickly eat a hole in your pocket. Wouldn’t that money be better spent, on say, a post-performance celebration? We think so, that’s why we set our tights at a price point that allows you to stock up regularly on quality tights without breaking the bank.
Styles of Dance That Commonly Use Our Tights
Convertible Tights are great for all styles of dance! Some of the favorite styles of dance for these tights are:
What's A Convertible Tight?
“Convertible” Means You Can Transition Tights Between Footed and Footless
Convertible tights have a small stretchy elastic hole in the foot’s sole. By slipping the tight over the toes and heel, the tights become footed for dancing in shoes. When a dancer wants to go footless, they stretch the tight back over the toes and heel and allow it to rest seamlessly on the ankle.
Wear the Same Tights from Dance Class to Dance Class
Are you switching from a Ballet class to a Modern class? With transition tights, a dancer can slip the tight on or off the foot to quickly and easily transfer between classes, saving time.
Convertible Tights Last Longer
Are you tired of losing tights to tears, rips, or holes? With convertible tights, a dancer can slip the tight up the ankle backstage, preventing them from getting caught on on loose objects or picking up dirt and grime. Convertible tights don’t get as dirty, because they can be transitioned up to the ankle when the dancer is walking around without shoes, which makes them easier to clean and extends their lifetime in comparision to other styles of tights.
The Best Selling Dance Tights
Convertible tights are a favorite for dancers everywhere. They are our #1 selling style of tight, outselling other styles 20 to 1!
How to Care for Your Tights:
Care & Washing instructions
Follow this step-by-step guide to wash your tights:
Hand Washing Dance Tights
Tights are meant to be hand washed. Here’s how to hand wash your tights:
- Combine cold water and a mild detergent
- Add tights to water and gently scrub
- Rinse off detergent with cold water
- Hang the tights up to air dry away from direct sunlight and heat.
Machine Washing Dance Tights
Let’s be real, most dancers don’t take the time to hand wash their tights. If you’re going to wash tight in a washing machine, follow these steps for best results:
- Insert tights into a mesh bag/lingerie bag to prevent tights from getting wrapped up in your machine.
- Set your washing machine to a gentle, cold water cycle.
- Use a mild detergent
- Hang tights up to air dry away from ALL direct sunlight and heat.
How to Ruin Your Dance Tights 😮
If you want to get the most life out of your tights, there are two things you absolutely NEVER want to do with any brand of dance tights:
- NEVER wash your tights in hot water
- NEVER put your tights into the dryer or any other high heat machine.
Heat breaks down the elasticity of the tights and they’ll never be the same again.
