The origins of tights is that ballet originated in Europe, where the winters are cold and warm clothes were necessary. Which leads to the question: in Australia, is the wearing of tights practical or just a holdover from a distant cold climate history?
In fact, there is a wide range of practical and sensible reasons to pull on your tights – even in Australia – even in summer.
In classical ballet, it is the norm in classical ballet for females to wear pale pink tights and males to wear light or dark coloured tights in a solid colour. There are some aesthetic reasons for this. For performances the corps de ballet need to be uniform in appearance and for the form and musculature of the dancer to be observed from the audience. Light tights also help the dancer’s form to be visible against coloured sets and the stage floor itself, which is usually black in colour. Under stage lighting, light coloured tights also help to define the dancers’ legs and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the movement.
