I am new learner, I am wondering if i should wear black tight or white tight. I think white tight is easier for people to observe the muscle, but black tight somehow too opaque, I think it is not good for observation. How do you think ?

Black will be standard for guys in most studios.
White tights... you run the risk of it being a bit see-through, and you don't really want leg hair and your dance belt showing.
I would start in black (unless your studio has a dress code that says otherwise). Then as you get more comfortable in the ballet world, and know more about thickness of tights and stuff, you might be able to switch to white.
Since you are starting, you are best to wear black tights, a white leotard or tight fitting shirt, and white leather ballet shoes. Then as you learn, you may want to switch to other clothing, but this will be the standard look to start with.

For regular ballet classes my dance studio requires the guys to wear a white fitted shirt, black tights, white socks, Nude color dance belt and white ballet shoes.

Usually white tights are for performances

I would highly recommend wearing black tights with a white shirt. Don't forget the dance belt:)

you could also wear gray ballet tights (repetto, wearmoi), they allow the teacher to see your legs and are not as revealing as white, ballet teachers recommend gray tights for boys when they start and switch to black for more advenced students

Black tights are best. The dark color hides the leg hair much better than white or grey tights.
