The Basics of Ballet
Assuming you would like a general overview of the basics of ballet:
Ballet is a type of performance dance that originated in the 15th century in Italy and later spread to France. The early form of ballet was known as court dance and was performed by nobles at social events. Ballet eventually found its way to Russia where it became a formalized art form. The first ballet academy was opened in 1738 by French dancer Jean-Georges Noverre.
The word “ballet” is derived from the Italian word “ballare” which means “to dance”. A ballet dancer is known as a ballerina. Classical ballet is based on traditional ballet technique and terminology. The basic steps of ballet are en pointe (on toe), pas de chat (cat’s walk), jeté (throw), relevé (rise), fouetté (whipped), chassé (chased), and pirouette (turn).
How To Wash a Pair of Tights
Assuming you don’t have a washer and dryer at your disposal, here’s how to clean your tights in a sink. First, fill the sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of mild detergent. Swish the tights around in the water for a few minutes, then let them soak for about 15 minutes. Next, gently rub the fabric together to work out any remaining dirt or grime. Finally, rinse the tights with cool water until all of the soap is gone. Squeeze out excess water and hang them up to dry.
Tips on Washing Tights
– machine wash on a delicate cycle in cold water with a mild detergent
– hand wash in cold water with a mild detergent
– air dry or line dry
When it comes to washing ballet tights, there are three main methods: machine washing, hand washing, and air drying or line drying.
Machine washing is the easiest method, simply set your machine to a delicate cycle and use cold water with a mild detergent. Hand washing is a bit more time consuming, but will help prolong the life of your tights. Simply soak them in cold water with a mild detergent before rinsing and air drying or line drying.
Air drying or line drying is the best way to prolong the life of your tights, but it can take longer for them to dry completely. Whichever method you choose, be sure to follow the care instructions on your tights to ensure that they last as long as possible.
