How Adults Dress for a Ballet Class

I recently stopped by the SoHo Ballet Beautiful studio to take a class taught by none other than founder Mary Helen Bowers. Dressed in a sleek black leotard with a bow-tie closure in the back and a pair of tights, I quickly remembered why I love the art form so much. Not only does it mould your body close to perfectly, it also integrates fashion and personal style. This got me pondering about how—once you’re past teenage years—an adult should approach dressing for a ballet class. Luckily, Bowers knows a thing or two about the subject and was lovely enough to answer all of my questions. Scroll down for the Q&A, and be sure to pick up your favourite pieces for your next class!
