I dance standard but insist on wearing a full skirt to practise in.  It just makes it feel right.

On the rare occasion (left it at home for example) I will dance in slacks and oddly it sometimes feels rather special!

Well, our practise sessions are often before or after our lessons. Our coaches have said that they prefer me not to wear a skirt, as they can't see my leg movement. I usually wear pants or shorts, with a comfortable t-shirt.

I always wear pants, our coaches prefer it, ladies can hide incorrect leg placement under a skirt and they want to be able to fix it.. I have a practice dress but don't wear it that often.

My teacher didn't care what I would wear even if it was a sack. Tongue

I one time had a lesson in my coat on top of 4 layers of clothing as the heating had broken down in the studio. My teacher could see that I was not holding my center. Shocked I swear that man had x-ray vision. He would actually sometimes correct me from the other room (not able to see me or hear me). When I asked him how he knew what I was doing he said that he could feel it as he had stepped into me. He just knew what you were doing without seeing or hearing you.  Shocked

Since most of our practices and lessons are after work, it's usually whatever I wore to work that day.  Sometimes if I'm wearing something like a heavy sweater, and I know I'm going to the studio after work, I take a t-shirt to change into.

My DP and I always change when we get to our lessons.  I wear dress pants and a dressy top and he wears a shirt and tie for standard, and latin pants and top during latin.  I like wearing the dress pants so they can see my legs and be able to correct anything they see wrong.

You have to fight through a lot of crap before you find your way up out of the toilet. Sometimes I think I have a good hold on the rim then I slip back in.  Each time I don't sink quite as deep though. - Rugby

Yes I agree and what is even spookier is that my sister is close to having the same skill. Shocked

My coaches have never complained about a skirt and I don't think I ever get away with 'leg errors' either.  After all, if a leg action does not result in a detectable wrong body action (seen or felt) why is it wrong?  The proof really is in the pudding Smiley

Well I am sure the good coaches dont need trousers or skirts to see a fault. I know I asked them and they said pants are fine, but I am sure if I wore a skirt they would not say anything either, it just depends on what is comfortable for you to dance at your best.

Like Dora I would wear a coat if it is cold and no heating, nothing would stop me from a lesson

I wear latin pants and a comfortable t-shirt, which is generally whatever is clean on my bedroom floor Roll Eyes works very well and have had no complaints from coaches, though other couples seem to think of me as overdressed for a practise i prefer to wear a similar attire to what i'll be competing in
