Btw, I bought a long practice skirt last month and I finally got around to wear it for a lesson (I find it hard to convince myself to wear skirts in winter). It definitely felt different compared to yoga pants I normally wear.

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

Well, I'm of the body type that if I wear something that's not at least slightly clingy in certain places, I look like a schlump and like I've got no shape at all.  And since tops with an empire waist so rarely fit me well, those don't look good mid-dance either.  Leotards are the best compromise for me.  They don't ride up, and I'm not half as traumatized by the "mid-bulge" as elise put it, if it's still covered with fabric!

i norally wear a lon skirt or a pair of pants with a piece of nettin over the top so it looks like a skirt.  sorry keyboard playin p not all the keys are worki  Grin   i don't dance well in shorts or noral pants.   i have sewed abot 6 skirts which i rotate.  i wear a tshirt bt ake certain it doesn't have a collar or sleeves - i have a tendancy to hnch the sholders.  - nnnsie  Grin Grin Grin

So funny Mummsie as my keyboard was playing up the other week and the n key wasn't working. It was really hard trying to say what I wanted to say without any n letters.
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

no its a flat mac keyboard and you can't take the keys off.  - Gary said the circuit had died - he's a techno dude.  Grin mm

Well, never argue with a techno dude, thats what I say.

And for those of us with non-flat keyboards had better eat chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen.... Cheesy

yes the dances are not too far removed from each other, we just have set patterns that everyone must dance, where you have freestyle routines.

Might be a way of introducing NV to north america - as a corollary of smooth...

could do, I believe there are groups in Canada that are exposed to NV and I know when us Aussies go to the US or places where they don't do it, there is a keen interest to have them show  the locals how it is done.

Our studio is often freezing cold in the morning so I wear my outdoor tops (with long practise skirt).  Its become a joke between us - as we start to dance DP usually says "why don't you stay a while" and I then gradually shed layers as I warm up.

Which defeats the purpose of practise clothes.

I wear clothes that show my legs/figure, because I'm a teenager, and because it helps me see what I'm doing wrong, because I can actually see what's happening.
