Practice tutu-does it help?


Recommended Posts

My DD is doing a pas de deux for the Nutcracker (Columbina doll) Her and her partner are both 12. They do a number of turns and lifts. Her partner has not dealt with a tutu in a performance before. Would it be helpful to have a practice tutu, or would that be an unnecesary expense.

In that particular case, yes. The practice tutu should be as much like the stage version as possible in terms of length and rise.

Most companies/schools have rehearsal tutu's available to the students. If not, does wardrobe have an old tutu that might not be "performance worthy"? If so, ask if it can be used for rehearsals...no need to purchase!
