Your child has signed up to ballet class, isn't that wonderful? It sure is an amazing feeling knowing that your child is about to embark into the world of dancing. But, alongside the feelings of excitement comes the looming anxiety of being thrust into a world that you're not completely comfortable with. Ballet clothes for kids and teenagers. After all, you want to give your child the best quality clothing to ensure they're fully prepared for a dance class but you also want to know you're getting the best value on the market.

This is where we come in.

After working hard to perfect our adult range of tights and leotards, through popular demand it was time to extend our expertise to the stars of tomorrow. The kids who will be taking centre stage in 5 or 10 years time. The teenagers who are just about ready to dip their toes into serious ballet. They needed the support that the professionals trust and they needed it today.

After the exciting release of our kids and teens collection, we wanted to share with you an insight into the world of ballet clothing and why exactly you should be choosing high-quality tights and leotards for your children's dance classes.

If you think ballet clothing isn't important, then think again. Whilst getting ready for a dance class, your child's clothing and appearance are two of the most important things. Did you know that in official examinations the examiner will grade your child on presentation? Those with beautifully intact tights, neat and tidy hair and complimenting leotards will max out the scoreboard. That boost is the best feeling. It's down to you, the parents, to get it right, and with Zarely, you will.


ballet dance tights for children

There are many different variations of ballet tights available but your little girl deserves the best, which is why Zarely tights are the best bet for setting your child up for dance class. Good quality tights for 5-year-olds and above are hard to come by. Tights that won't rip and snag after one quick change, tights that won't start to go bitty after two or three washes. Tights that are not only durable but supportive and comfortable. After all, comfort is one of the most important aspects of ballet.

After persevering through the dreaded high street ballet tights, we knew it was time for a change for the stars of tomorrow. Washing your 5-year-olds ballet tights only to find that the knees were saggy and that beautiful tone of pink had turned to a dirty pink after only a couple of washes was not only irritating and unhelpful, but it was also not economical. Constantly replacing shabby ballet tights were burning holes in pockets, and fast.

That's why we perfected and made our Z1 Rehearsal Tights for Kids available. Trusted by many of the world's best ballerinas, the Z1 ballet tights are beautiful, high-quality tights handcrafted with the finest Italian material to ensure that your child and you can rely on them to keep intact, wash after wash, wear after wear.

Starting at a size Petite ranging up to Large kids, the Z1 rehearsal tights will keep up with demanding rehearsals whilst achieving an amazing leg sculpting impression. Not only do they feel good, but they also improve your child's performance. We're all proud of our little ones no matter how they do, but with the Z1 tights, the light will be reflected and their leg lines will be accentuated increasing their performance. After all, doesn't everybody want their child centre stage, shining like a star? Z1 rehearsal tights, available in pleasing pink or brilliant black, the instant confidence booster for kids.

Once the rehearsals have finished and its show time, many parents will invest in a good pair of performance tights. Available with or without a seam, the Z2 Performance Tights are a big hit among the professional dancers for shows and performances. After gruelling rehearsals, the performance is the end result, the time to let them enjoy it, this is what they have been working so hard for. The Z2 tights will accentuate your child's leg line whilst giving an extra element of freedom with compromising on durability or placing additional stress on those all-important growing joints and muscles. After scrolling through Instagram seeing all the beautiful photos of some of the world's most acclaimed principal dancers, your child can feel that level of professionalism and importance too. Available in two jaw-dropping colours, pink and stage pink, the Z2 Performance Tights give your child the chance to be the star, whilst feeling comfortable and confident, meaning she can focus on what's important, the performing.
