dance warm-up pants


Recommended Posts

I saw these Harmonie mercure pants on sale and am wondering if anyone has tried them, since I can't return them if I buy them and I won't have a chance to try them on. I have some of Harmonie's amplitude viola pants (see picture at top), but they fall down a little bit, so I thought that the mercure pants might stay up better, since they have a belt.


If you have any other suggestions for warm-ups that stay up well, please post!

My solution would be to provide your own belt. Get an inexpensive web belt off the rack, and use that for holding up all sorts of things.

To hold up my wool tights I cut the waist band out of old pink tights , put that around my waist over the tights, and then fold the excess down over the belt, it really works great and then I am not wandering around the studio hiking up my britches. You can also use a hip alignment belt, if you have one.

I use a wider hip alignment belt.

I allow hip alignment belts in my class - as long as they're worn around the waist! :rolleyes:


Wear the belt at the waist, hike the leg-warmers or whatever up over them, tuck the excess under the belt, then roll the belt once, hiking up the whole assembly one last time.

Mel, you just brought up my biggest pet peeve! I can not stand seeing those belts down around the hips, yes, it is a HIP alignment belt, but it is to be worn around the waist! Gads.


Sorry, just had to vent.

That's exactly it, Mel!
