Tight tubes - where to get them?

It seems that every dancer wears tight tubes when they practice. Here are 2 examples:

1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwDse2ql-74

(at 8:50) - Maximova - she seems to just wear 2 tubes that start from ankles to hips; Vasiliev - he seems to wear a pair of tubes also.

2.

(at 0:50)

Sara Mearns - she wraps a plastic film underneath the tube on her lower leg

I am curious what these tubes are called. Where could you buy them? If I know the right name, I guess I can Google and I may find them at Amazon. But, I don't know what the name is.

It looks like they are wearing leg warmers. They can be worn over the entire leg, just above the knee, or scrunched down around the ankles, which was a very popular look in the early aerobics phase. Some examples:

amazon sells a lot of different styles and patterns, and you can usually get them at most dance shops. Capezio, for example, carries them:

There are usually a few knitters in ballet companies: your local company may have a dancer who makes them custom.
