Ballet dresses – a symbol of elegance

The ballet is not only popular because of the elegant movements and the graceful dance, but also because of the special dress of the dancers. Made of delicate, often translucent fabrics, ballet dresses are particularly fine and underline the graceful movements of the dancers perfectly. Meanwhile, there are ballet dresses in a variety of variations. Made of high quality materials, the clothes ensure a high level of comfort and maximum freedom of movement. And despite the variety of dancewear is probably the best known ballet dress The tutu is still the most popular among the dancers as well as the audience.

The most famous ballet dress: the tutu

Although the tutu has a long history, it can still be seen in modern ballet pieces. The tutu received its name around the year 1881 around. However, there are several theories about where the name comes from. Some say the name „tutu“ is simply derived from „tulle“, that is, the name of the substance from which the ballet dress consists. Others say that the term „tutu“ comes from French. The word „cucul“ („popo“) is presumed to be the namesake, as the dress allowed the spectators to see the „cucul“ of the dancers. This theory is certainly the funniest explanation for the origin of the term „tutu“, but whether it is true, is not yet clear. The tutu, as we know it today, was first seen on stage in 1832. At that time, the Italian ballerina Marie Taglioni wore him in the ballet piece La Sylphide. This first version of the tutu was still a long, bell-shaped skirt, with which the dancer’s footwork could be seen particularly well. The tutu quickly became the most popular ballet dress , And not without reason, because in the time before the dancers often wore only simple street clothes on stage. The short tutus now allowed the ballet dancers to move better and jump higher.

Variants of the tutu

From the classic tutu, several variants have developed, all of which are still popular ballet dresses today. The so-called bell tutu, for example, is a short, stiff skirt that consists of at least five tulle layers and has a bell-like shape. Since the end of the 18th century, there is also the pancake tutu. This too ballet dress consists of several layers of tulle and is usually worn with a tire. The pancake tutu is shorter than the bell tutu and is located at the level of the waist parallel to the ground. The pancake tutu was the first time the audience was able to see the impressive footwork of the ballet dancers. Only since 1950 there is the powder tassel tutu. His name does not come by chance, because this Tutu variant is very fluffy and made of soft tulle. Since it is not so bulky, the powder tassel tutu gives the dancers a lot of freedom of movement and makes the dance look extremely graceful. In addition, there is the plate tutu, which looks similar to the pancake tutu. In the case of the Tutu Tutu, the top is flat, while the pancake tutu is a little bit puffed up.
