Sparkly Tutu Skirt

Well they’re normally made from layers of tulle which is a fine, light-weight netting and the magic comes from the wearer. Not only are tutus beautiful, but the movement of the light layers of tulle show off the ballet dancer’s intricate footwork and exaggerate their graceful storytelling. This short video is a great intro on the different styles of tutu and well worth a watch:

When it comes to young children, tutus certainly have the power to transform the wearer into a magical world. It’s great fun to watch the transformation in a child when they put on their tutu: they immediately turn into a little ballet dancer doing lots of turns, little runs on their tip toes and big leaps. Fascinated by seeing how the skirt moves when they turn and seeing the beautiful, fairy-like fabric, is a great motivator in encouraging them to dance and be creative.
