If you’ve followed my blog long enough, you’ll know the search for new tights, especially, online has been an epic fail.
Capezio changed the brand I used to wear into something more see-through. My reliable Sansha brand has also been hard to find, even in the dance store I shop at when I have no other choice.
I have to credit Merciechatons with helping me actually find a pair that is opaque enough to wear to class. I followed the link to Discount Dance Supply and took one more chance.
They came yesterday. I didn’t get hopes up until I put them. They were the right fit and very opaque (finding the right fit, too, can be a challenge because men’s sizes are all over the map.
For the record, for any guy out there trying ballet who is brave enough to wear tights, the brand I bought was an M. Stevens pair (first time I’ve ever bought their brand). The only question now is how durable they are. Guess I’ll know that in a few weeks. I intend to buy an extra pair or two, but they are a little pricier than Capezio or Sansha.
As for dancing itself, we’re on spring break this week. I’m feeling a bit like a sloth and can’t wait to get back into the studio. Right now, that’ll be Sunday with Cinderella rehearsal. But I’m hoping they’ll offer a class between now and then.
