Hi I recently had to buy some black leotards for an exam. I ordered both http://www.dancedirect.com/uk/Products/Ballet/P12/ this one from plume which is a lovely cut but comes down quite low at the front

 

And this bloch one http://www.dancedirect.com/uk/Products/Ballet/L5407/ which is very comfortable and is quite high leg but the cut is not as flattering, also note it comes up a little smaller

 

do the leotards have to be black for auditions?

At 10 - coloured. No need for black unless the school specifies. A plain tank or cami leotard in a colour she likes (and which suits her), ballet socks (unless tights specified), and shoes with elastics in case they want to look at her feet. Above all avoid knicker malfunction and uncomfortable leotards in case she feels the need to fiddle with straps! :-)

Hi

We were advised coloured on the pale side for younger ones. They like belts as well apparently. You can go for a flesh coloured body underneath if reqd. If you have one already that does the job than use it. All the audition letters make it clear they don't want you to spend for the audition.

Our uniform leotards weren't suitable so did have to buy. As an example we found the capezio 'princess' cami in white or pink did the job. DD very skinny. Used child medium age 10 and large age 11.

At RBS Audition Insight days when they are talking about the upcoming auditions, they always recommend a coloured leotard rather than black.  They suggest you get it in good time and have the photos taken in the leotard you will wear for the audition as this helps them recognise candidates more easily during the actual audition.
