I told you I would find an expose on the tutu! I love peeking behind the scenes at storied institutions that consistently amaze with their productions of lovely, wonderful things. The Royal Opera House Ballet of London offers up a great discussion of the tutu by the dancers who wear them, and the costumers who construct them.
I love the stacks of tutus at about the 1 minute mark. And, who knew tutus could be treacherous, resulting in tutu face burn? I didn't think it was possible for me to have more respect for dancers, but I now do. And for tutus.
