just make sure all that stuff is *clean* and doesn't accumulate "fester" in your dance bag!  Tongue

I don't think it's just you.  At all.  By a long shot. 

God knows I sweat like a guy...or a stuck pig...whichever is more.  It doesn't even have to be hot out (although that's hell), or working nearly as hard as you ballroom dancers do.  I just sweat...a lot...  When my hair was really short it would get to the point of soaking my hair and dripping off the back of it.  Ew.  Paper towels to the rescue.

Towels, napkins, trips to the bathroom to wash off a bit with a damp paper towel...that's about all I can do about it.  I don't usually bring an extra shirt, cuz for a girl that often has to turn into extra outfits.  I take breaks.  And apologize. 

Then again, it's pretty usual for the guys to be as sweaty as me, so after a while no one really cares.  Am I wiping my sweat off my face, or yours, or both???  Eh, less thinking, more dancing. 

I tend to stay away from anti-perspirant when I dance, and opt for deodorant instead.  I find that a)no anti-perspirant is effective enough to make a significant difference, and b)sweat + strong anti-perspirant tends to leave me with blocked pores and a rash, which is just way too uncomfortable to deal with.  (I can't believe I just posted that on an open forum.  How embarrassing.)

I sweat a lot too.

I buy wiccing shirts, that is...shirts that breathe and expel excess water to the outside layer which then evaporates it.  Ha, not with this sweater they don't. However, special athletic wiccing wear is much better than regular wear. I notice at salsa that some ladies wear tennis tops and skirts, very sexy and quite nice lines but same idea, they are athletic wear and help to deal with sweating.

I found a line here in Canada called COOL, sold at sears, which offers a wiccing line of shirts. I don't particularly like to have to wear stuff with a logo on it all the time and these shirts look like regular dress shirts but actually made of a wiccing material.

When wearing a dress shirt I have started to wear and singlet underneat, often an athletic wiccing top.  I also wear lots of  black t-shirts when I'm latin dancing. I wear a lot of dark colours because it doesn't show so much and I also bring 3 or 4 extra ts, and I wear them all. I do bring a towel and also, of course, lots of liquid. Hydration is very important.

I learned that watching people puke at martial arts and tennis tournaments.  Now, when I go social or salsa dancing, I start drinking water about an hour beforehand and continue to drink lots of water throughout the night.

I really sweat a lot and am very lucky that I don't smell.  Every once in a while I'll dip into my dance bag, pull out my towel and another shirt and disappear into the bathroom.  There I towel off, freshen up and don a new top.

I also find I have to launder my pants often as they have salt stains on them from sweat. I keep my hair short also.  I have a friend who grosses the girls out because he not only sweats a lot but sprays everyone when he shows off his double and triple spins...

My partner just needed to think of dancing and he would start to perspire. Smiley When we would then start dancing then he would be soaked. I on the other hand would only glow. Wink I would often end up with a “heart” shape on my body suit, at least that was poof that we were having body contact.  Embarrassed   Shocked  Tongue   Cheesy

I don't, really.  I can, have, and do, but it takes a lot more than the amount of hard dancing I do to make me sweat.  I sweat when I get on the elliptical (although not to the dripping point that some of you talk about), and I used to sweat when I'd be performing under the hot stage lights in high school show choir and when I'd be working outside at the barn during the summertime.  But dancing?  Not so much.  At socials I don't dance enough or for a sustained period to really make me sweat, showcases are just one 3-minute routine, and since I only compete Bronze, there's only so much dancing I do there too.  And of course lessons are more detail-oriented than dancing full-out.
