Many companies manufacture dance wear, costumes and fleece warm up clothing for professional ballet dancers and students of ballet. Ballet dancers usually wear either tights or leotards for comfortable body maneuver. The tights worn depend on the type of slippers that the dancer wears. They can be footed with an elastic strap at the foot that is hooked onto the heel. Tights can also be footless ending at the ankle. Ballet tights are made of nylon, micro fiber, fishnet and other materials. Tights come in a variety of colors, with the most popular being pink and black. Most dance schools require pink, footed tights for girls and black tights and white socks for boys. Brand names include Prima Soft, Danskin, Capezio and Mondor.
