As “The Dance Store for Men” approaches it’s first anniversary of being open, we look back and remember why we started in the first place. There is no good place to buy men’s and boys’ dance clothes. Well, we are proud to be still here as THE solution. Boys' dancewear in particular was the most challenging. To find a pair of ballet tights for boys might have been “simple” for some, “annoying” for others, and “impossible” for most. Even if someone found a place for boys' dancewear, the selection was miniscule, the service was probably way under par and the environment surely screamed “no boys allowed.” Boys' dancewear is not a luxury, it is a need; for boy dancers at least. We found that boys' dance belts and boys' ballet tights were the most popular items in our boys' dancewear selection.
Having fun getting your son in a boys' dance belt for the first time? Probably not. Well at least they have a decent name. Dance Belt. Better than Jock Strap in my opinion. When you look at the dance belt you don't really see anything alarming except for the thong. Is it really necessary to have a thong? Yeah.. I wish I could say no but, it is. It would look like a diaper under tights, leotards or bike shorts. I would choose the thong over the diaper if I was a 7 year old. As I mentioned in a previous blog about boys' leotards, the thong is really not a big deal. Unless you are getting a cheap dance belt. They are torturous. Cheap, yes. But torturous. Don't do it. It's worth the extra bucks to get a nice one like our Wear Moi dance belt for boys. Wouldn't you pay $5 to not hear the complaints?
Dance leotards for boys... is it really that scary? Well sort of. I remember when I was a gymnast and we had to get uniforms, they were boys leotards and a pair of small shorts. 16 boys tried to fight...
