DANCE & FASHION
The relationship between dance and fashion dates back to the time when dance and music took place in both the halls of castles as well as in cafés. No one but a dancer knows the worth of feline and graceful moves accompanied by an adequate sartorial sense. The audience is left in awe and compelled to applaud the dancers for their ravishing balletic dance. Dance is an art and similarly, a genuinely intriguing fashion sense is also an art only fashion lovers understand. One thing is for sure: dance and fashion must go hand in hand.
You might be an excellent dancer, but if your costume or dress is not appealing, you might not receive maximum results. Well, even our movies teach us the same. Be it Hermoine from the Harry Potter movie or Cinderella, both had their best dresses on, which got them neck-turning attention from everyone at the ballroom. Your costume and dress matters a lot. It not only helps boost your confidence, but it also gives you the guts to present much more than you thought you were capable of. Wouldn’t you love swirling in a charismatic ball gown, becoming center of attraction?
You might be nervous about an important ballroom dance. This can be your Annual Dinner, Social Night, Welcome or Farewell party. You might have been asked from the most handsome or beautiful dance partner, but you are not sure about your costume or dress. Your nails matter a lot, so stop biting them. Here, we give you a fair idea to about choosing your ballroom dance clothes. The dress must not only be fashion forward, but also fall within your budget. You won’t only dance skillfully, but you will also steal the hearts of everyone with your magnificently made costume and dress.
What you should take care of before buying a dress for a ballroom dance
Ask yourself these questions when choosing a dress:
- Is it for my body type? Very important. It is necessary that you pick a dress you like and that is appropriate for your body. If you have a small waist, be sure your dress doesn’t cling. Your shoulder and chest size also matter. You can’t wear something either too tight or too loose. It should just be perfect!
- Does the color suit me? Not all colors are for everyone. If you have a dark complexion, wear a shade of green or blue. This doesn’t look odd. If you are a pale, fair skinned girl, then wear a dress dark color dress – blood red, charcoal black, sapphire blue and even moss green would look lovely.
- Is it necessary to try it out? Never neglect this question. It is always necessary to try dresses for your dance. On a hanger, the dress may appear to be absolutely fine. But when you put it on, you may realize some adjustments need to be made. Luckily, these days boutiques know the hassle. They have tricks to adjust it even in the nick of time. With hidden straps, buttons and hooks, things have become much easier. Moreover, the dress should be simply elegant!
Fashion is in the footwear, too!
Sadly, the entire focus is usually on the dress. Dancers forget that it is their feet that will be responsible for their fluent and lithe dance moves. They must think about getting ergonomic but sassy footwear. Avoid wearing very tight or very loose shoes, as they would make you exhausted really quickly. Your partner won’t like that! For a ballroom dance, it is always good to get a pair of satin or leather baby heels. Once you are used to dancing in these, you can try higher heel shoes.
Dance and dance in your embellished dress until you win their hearts!
