About Professional Ballet Tutus
According to Dance Magazine, ballet's iconic costume, the tutu, made its stage debut in 1832 in "La Sylphide" with Marie Taglioni performing in a romantic style tutu. Professional ballet tutus take hours of intricate production work to complete the designs. A short classical tutu contains 10 layers of tulle, while a longer, bell-shaped romantic tutu has five layers. Making a tutu by hand can take 60 hours or more. Ballerinas can find professional ballet tutus suitable for many roles in a variety of colors and sizes among the vast inventory on eBay. They can choose iconic pink or white classical styles or find bright, flashy colors for roles in contemporary ballets. Romantic style tutus are perfect for roles like Juliette and Giselle, while a black ballet tutu accented with gold makes a beautiful Black Swan. For novice or child dancers, ballet costume tutus are available in sizes that start as small as toddler sizes. These adorable costumes are perfect for dance recitals, costume parties, and even fairy princess tea parties for little ones who just love layers of tulle.
