Ballet Trivia Quiz Answer

“How many tacks are there in a classical tutu?”

d) about 300

A tack is used to make the layers stay together, with the tutu hoop, which make that flat crisp look on a classical tutu. You use a long needle and thread and start on the lowest under layers and work your way to the top layer.

Thanks to Boston Ballet's blog, Footnotes, for this!
