You may have seen me on another thread mention about costumes. We had the experience this week-end of a young lady wearing a Latin outfit covered in bugle beads that when she danced CCC or Samba they were flying everywhere across the floor. after each event they brought out the broom to clean them up. It was quite dangerous and the only person in the end that slipped on the beads was her own partner...He was not a happy boy.( She Danced Very well BTW) Costume was deadly.

I was concerned for one of the dancers who was 20 weeks pregnant(this was her last comp).

What is the ruling in your neck of the woods about costumes such as I described.

I wouldn't worry about the pregnant competitor.  Surely it was all cleared with her OB.

Shalene Ermis actually continued to teach until at least 10 days before her C-section; the baby was born on Christmas Eve--I saw her in the studio teaching on Dec. 14, then I left for the holidays.  For all I know she continued to teach even after that.  Of course, I freely admit that Shalene Ermis is a bit of an exception!

Shalene is amazing.  That's all I have to say about that.
I hear, too, that the baby is very cute!

We can't help it, multi-tasking, its part of the criteria for being female.

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.

Shouldn't any costume have been danced before the comp to make sure it isn't going to hurt someone?

I recall comps from my early days where the floor became treacherous from loose rhinestones.  Evidently the glue is better these days, since I haven't noticed that costumes have any less stones then they used to.

Or perhaps you are more grounded in your feet, or not as distracted?

I think the concern was what could happen if the pregnant dancer would trip over the loose beads and fell, the complications of it?

That would be great since that would make it safer

Yes and no, you girls are able to do multiple things at the same time, your problem is finishing the task

Okay okay, you are right, but recent research shows that real multi tasking is actually impossible for us humans both male and female
