The idea to start producing contemporary dance pants arose from many dancers' own need for high-quality, beautiful, professional contemporary dance and training pants at a reasonable price. It has been a development process of almost a whole year, in which more than 15 dancers from Germany, Belgium, France and Spain, 2 designers, 2 pattern makers and many other people from the textile world have been involved and managed to put the best of their work and experience to obtain the Contemporary Dance Pants (Flying Pants) that we have achieved.
Many of us are always "pecking" pants in different places, and even then it is very difficult to find a "perfect" pair of contemporary dance pants. In fact, 6 professional dancers were asked what their favorite contemporary and training dance pants are, and what could be improved; and a lot of details came out: removing the pockets and zippers, widening the elastic at the waist, better adapting the shot, having more designs and colors, having a thicker and more resistant fabric that does not give heat, etc. p>
With all these people, a first pattern was defined that was then improved in up to 5 iterations until it achieved a shape that allows the body to be stylized while maintaining great comfort in movement, and trying to maximize its fit in our bodies, which are so different.
Months of research and testing were dedicated to the fabric, with visits to more than 15 different technical fabric factories. We were looking for a fabric that is resistant, that slips to be able to fly, that absorbs humidity and that is pleasant to the touch with the skin.
And about the colors, a survey was conducted with 8 dancers who chose their dream colors, and a final survey was made from all of them that led to the colors of our first production.
The waist cords with stitched eyelets, the 4 cm high quality elastic waistband, the stitching with safety stitches, etc., all of these are details that allow us to say that we have a professional product.
Thank you very much to everyone involved for helping in this dream!
The story does not end here…it has only just begun. We continue to analyze how our contemporary dance pants fly, and we are already developing new products that we will soon publish in our catalogue.
