Ok...I'm going to confess, I have a sweating problem. One heat of quickstep on the comp floor and I'd be dripping off my face! It's ridiculous, and embarrassing when I go out social dancing. My back and front would be drenched in sweat after a couple of dances. Maybe I'm not the only one, so any ideas on the sweaty deal with this problem?

I wouldn't say there was anything abnormal about how much you sweat. I've never noticed anything unusual when we dance.
Everyone sweats, it's normal. You're definitely not the only one. BF usually changes his shirt/top at least once whenever he dances, he also carries a towel (hand towel/face washer) or two with him in his dance bag/shoes.

Ih ave a friend also that is very concerned with his sweating issue. you would need to see a doctor if you think it is a serious problems sometimes there underlying medical conditions, but in general I think we all seat and I know when I dnce with V and it is warm if he wears a shirt that shows the perspiration you can see the sweat through his shirt.

it shows that you are working. but do you wear a singlet underneath your shirt that can help absorb the sweat? I know there is support to be a product out there tht you can use, stage actors use it to prevent excessive sweating if they are in costume. check with the doctor first.

The singlet thing really helped, until I had to work my arse off to keep up with a professional dancer. That was a great dance! Haven't worked that hard since the aussies.

During the summer, when I go social dancing, I take an extra shirt with me and change after the first hour.

There is body deoderant, though it is used to mask the smell and not stop the sweat, a good underarm deoderant can help...

bring several shirts to change into... bring several clean towels to mop face and neck... make sure your clothes are laundry-fresh. don't worry beyond that.

i regularly dance with someone who knows he's "the sweatiest man in dance" (and he's right).but with the precautions above, it's all manageable and no problem.
