With the high cost of professional dancesport trainers and competition fees, not to mention travel & hotel cost, ballroom dancers have a lot to handle before they even step out onto the competition floor. KE dancewear is developing a ballroom dance dress rental site to help ballroom dancers offset the high costs of ballroom dance competitions. The site should debut some time in June 2013.
However, if you’re in need of a ballroom dress rental today, we will open the vault for you to rent early. Keep in mind that many of our dresses have never been worn yet. And, since we’re in the development stages, we may be able to collaborate on a design with you and instead of you buying your ballroom dress for $3500, you can rent it for only a fraction of the cost, often 10-20%. That’s a huge savings and a benefit often unheard of! If you’d like to inquire about what we have available for rent, contact: info@KEdancewear.com
- Dress in dark colors because they’ll usually work best for hiding sweat and any water you may spill when trying to hydrate from all that cardio. However it doesn’t hurt to add a pop of color hear and there.
- Make sure you also wear lightweight stretchable clothing; you’ll be grateful for clothes that breathe and fabrics that are movable help you strike your salsa moves with precision. However, be aware that Nylon clothing will dry faster than cottons.
- Skirts should be worn above the Knee or shorter. Flirty moveable skirts are best but when it comes to your tops, keep it simple. Wear short sleeve or no sleeve pullover stretchable tops that are well fitted around the waist. Long sleeves are a no-no because they tend to get in the way of all that fast salsa movement and may cause you and your partner to disconnect.
- Wear shoes that are firm around your feet that also have smooth soles to prevent falls or injuries. And although we like our heels high ladies, lower heels will allow you to move well during spins.
- Last but not least and definitely above all else, remember that all those fast dips and spins may play peek-a-boo with your undergarments ladies, so sometimes briefs under you skirt or booty shorts may be a great option.
That being said, when Salsa dancing, the most important thing to wear is a great smile; which you should have no problem doing when you’re having fun being dipped and spun around the dance floor.
Oh and P.S., … a little deodorant probably wouldn’t hurt!
