I always wear practice clothes... my coaches/ teachers always say that this is a good thing because the practice clothes help them to see better where/ how my body is moving... That is what they are designed to do after all.... My favorite Practice clothes designers are Espen Salberg Designs and Dance America. You can buy their stuff on danceshopper ....I have always been satisfied with it.. Cheesy I just got new practice wear for Christmas from my Mother! I'm so excited!

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


When I think of it I agree with ee.  I don't think my coaches would care what I wore, as in pants or skirt either.  If I even turn my foot in the wrong direction they feel it so they don't need to see my legs.  Actually my partner and I can even tell when the other one has the foot turned the wrong way and a wrong leg action is even more obvious.  I don't need to see him nor he I.   I would say it's more in latin that they want to see my legs so the skirt would have to be short if I chose that over the pants.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

I tend to use the same skirt every day but I like to change the top - since I get warm easily and I have minimal time for changes I've accumulated a few cotton tops that are light and practical for dancing and that can also be worn by themselves or under layers (like now) at work...  I just wish I had bought more of my favorite - a black pima cotton with a low cut front and short sleves gathered at the shoulder.  Its perfect but i doubt I will ever see another...

Depends if I get to come home before a lesson or practice I always change and don't bring other clothes. but if I go direct from work I always bring practice clothes and don't dance in my work clothes. Sometimes the skirts or tops are restricting and don't feel comfortable for dancing.  But I am sure coaches can always look past the clothing and see what they need to see is about being comfortable to do your best.

I think the most common cause is a 'bit' under the key itself.  Sometimes you can blow it out - but then you loose another key Roll Eyes

Yoga pants here, usually along with a ballet leotard now that I had to buy a couple for my last showcase routine--it's great, they don't ride up on you and expose your belly!

They are rather clingy though. I generally prefer not to wear clingy tops while dancing, because they do ride up, and they also show if I relax my stomach muscles  Embarrassed

that is the idea. wear things that will show the faults so you can be reminded what you should be holding in or hold correctly. Tongue

A leotard would not, of course, ride up but I know what you mean about the clingy tops!  OTOH as Q said, its good for you to catch yourself in the mirror with the mid-bulge - nothing gets you straightening up faster!

I have the same issue - as long as I hold myself straight I have a nice figure but once I relax I look AWFUL.  I must get back to stomach crunches....
