Also, put some strong gel to ensure that it will remain unruffled all throughout your performance. This is really important as to keep the focus on your dancing and your other accessories.
Check for holes in your leotard. Make sure that everything is clean. Sew up leotard pants or at least get a good one from a trusted boutique. This way, you are able to make those arabesques without any difficulty or fear that it will be ripped out.
Wrap a cloth around the thigh region. Cut it accordingly and add glitter and design to it. Sew in sequins as you deem applicable. Secure it with a rubber band or elastic band.
Color Coordinate Your Purchases
Make sure that the colors match. Stuck with a theme? Make sure that you are complying to the theme requirements of your performance. If you are doing it for fun, just mix and match various colors until you find the right combination that represents you.
Practice Your Moves
