RE: Why do dancers wear leg warmers?
Apprentice Asked on September 26, 2015 in Dancewear/Shoes/Costumes.
Keeps the muscles in the legs warm. Similarly dancers do warm-up exercises before dancing for the prevention of muscle injuries, cramping etc. And with the legs being so important to a dancer, leg warmers are worn as an additional way to support that. Also great during the colder winter months and as fashion pieces!
