Question: What Is a Dance Belt?
Answer: A dance belt is a thong-like undergarment generally worn by male ballet dancers to support and protect the genitalia, as many advanced ballet moves could possibly produce pain or injury to the groin area. A dance belt is also used for visual considerations, as tight, body-hugging clothing such as tights could detract from a dancer's performance by revealing parts of the male anatomy, possibly detracting from the dancer's performance.
