About our SEMINARS. It is not just sewing skills that are required to make or “build” a tutu, but the experience and knowledge put into its design, fabric choices, construction, and fitting that make a quality tutu. With some practice, most intermediate sewers can follow a pattern and “make” a tutu for a recital or student dancer, but the demands of a professional require more than that. It starts with knowing a dancer’s needs. Our Seminars teach just that! From construction methods, working (fitting) on dancers, to the "Art" of the tutu (design and embellishing). Classes cover more than just the sewing techniques you need to know, but also "How's" and "Why's".
• How total freedom of movement is essential, through the cut of the bodice and skirt.
• How the cut of the costume is also designed to show off the dancers’ body and lines to their full potential.
• Before building a tutu you must also consider the choreography... Will they be partnered? What lifts will be done? Will your tutu work in this situation?
• Is this for a soloist or principal dancer (custom fitted) a company (easily altered to fit others), or for a competition? A student or a professional?
• The construction, including fabric choices, should be sturdy enough to last many years,
and through many alterations. Learn new skills or hone skills you already have. Join others in learning more about this art form. Much of the information provided is only learned as apprentices or “hands-on” in a costume shop or over many years of experience.
