Default Re: What would you make for dancers

I am a dance educator as well as a dance mom (and a hair accessory addict!) I teach at 2 studios, and right now it is a big trend to have a small clip in the front (many of the girls wear a low bun with a side part) and then a coordinating bow in the back over the bun. This is popular with girls from kindergarten through jr high.

The older girls (jr/sr high) also love the singed fabric flowers. I made them as part of a costume piece for our dance concert last year and the girls still wear them for everyday and to class.

Many studios have a dress code for the type of leotards and warm-ups that are permitted in class BUT there is nothing said about hair accessories. So while our kids have to stick with the same leo for everyone, they can express their style and mood with their hair accessories.
