Covered in color: vivid warm-ups to keep you cozy.

Wearing a parka in the studio isn't practical. There's an easier way to keep your muscles warm and still have freedom of movement. Try layering warm-ups to help regulate your body temperature. * Imagine dancing in a cold studio. You've piled on clothing and are working up a major sweat. What happens when you take a break? You cool down in a hurry. Layering allows you to remove and add clothing as needed before you get too hot or cold. * Look for pieces that pull double duty. A tube top can be worn over pants as a skirt or as a back warmer with a shrug. If you're wearing a wrap sweater but are still chilly, try leg warmers on your forearms. * Take a chance on a coordinated head-to-toe outfit or funk up your existing clothes with a few colorful accents. There's nothing wrong with having the winter blues as long as you have the winter pinks, greens, and purples too!
