In recent years, those in the dancewear industry have started coming out with ballet slippers that match the color of darker-skinned dancers. At Dance Jox we are applying a similar principal of equality of dancewear color by producing a brown dance belt.
In the world dance, male ballet dancers are going to need the proper dance belt to practice and perform in. And this is where we come in.
What is a dance belt? In a nutshell, a dance belt is like jock strap. There is nothing really fancy about it. The sole purpose of a dance belt is to protect the genitals of a male dancer. In fact, they look like normal men’s underwear. There are no fancy patterns or pretty colors on them. A dance belt doesn’t have to be made of expensive materials either. All a dance belt has to do is support the genitals as a dancer takes class or performs on stage.
Why would you need a dance belt? Despite what the outside world thinks, ballet is very athletic. Just like all sports, dancers can and possibly will get injured during class, rehearsal, or god forbid a performance. All professional male ballet dancers wear a dance belt. This is well known in the dance world and not a big deal to most men in dance.
What we pride our selves on is — our dance belts keep you security in place. But the problem is dance belts don’t traditionally come in colors that would match a dark skin tone. We don’t think it’s right. Everybody should have flesh toned dancewear that actually matches their skin tone. They are already doing this with shoes. Why not a dance belt?
Our dance belts provide the supreme comfort any male dancer will need for their class, rehearsal or performance. We know that you are looking for comfort and strength. Our belts are as soft as a pillow with solid strong construction where some have compared them to Gaynor Minden pointe shoes. You can rest assured and enjoy the soft and ultra-lightweight fabric that every belt is made with. Your manhood will get plenty of breathable room thanks to the patented moisture-wicking technology built into every dance belt. The four-way stretch is a nice touch as well. You will be able to dance with ease knowing you have a great situation “down there.” Plus, you don’t have to deal with an annoying rolling waistband as you dance. That’s right, all of our waistbands are non-roll elastic and seamless. Everything is flat-seamed and easy to manage. The two-and-a-half-inch wide waist elastic will hold everything in place. You already have your dancing to focus on. Pour all of your energy into that without worrying about a dance belt bothering you.
We make our dance belts with the idea it last a long time. It would be a waste of money just to keep replacing your dance belts. You want great quality dancewear that will carry you through each season of your dancing career.
The pouch of the dance belt is a thick padding that conceals. The center seam is there a construction element that creates the great cup shape. The seam also acts as a spine that makes your “bump” smooth. We call this the “Ken doll” effect.
Washing and drying your dance belt is no big deal. As we recommend line drying, the dryer will not cause too much change in fitting.
As we have mentioned above, our dance belts come in a few colors that will compliment multiple skin tones. Our belts come in beige, brown, or black. Our sizes come in small, medium, large, extra large, and XXL fitting up to a 40″ waist. We try to be inclusive when it comes to body types and skin tones in the world of dance.
