Dance Costumes

It is becoming a tradition to recycle, redo, or create from scratch, the costumes for my daughters’ solo dances. We all enjoy the process, and we save lots of money. We have also been able to get what we want, rather than just settling for something out of the costume catalog. Recorded here is the process we went through to get to each of our final costumes.

2016
Dulcinea, dream variation from Don Quixote

2015
Golden Vine Fairy, variation from Sleeping Beauty

2011
Dirty Orchestra, contemporary pointe solo
Norteña del Sur, contemporary pointe solo

2010
Coppelia, solo wedding variation
Flames of Paris, solo variation

2009
La Fille Mal Gardee, Lise variation
Pas de Trois, solo variation from Swan Lake

2008
Woodland Glade Fairy, variation from Sleeping Beauty
