Some people said that good dresses help. But I have heard opposite opinions each with supporting evidences.

I kinda go with the no black dress rule. I personally still think that bright color helps (you don't even have to stone it).

And I have heard this - more or less as a joke - that pinning numbers on ladies back will increase your visibility by 100% Wink.

For sure.  I know of one amateur who really is rather a poor dancer - but he still wins competitions because he really does have the champion 'look' nailed.  Its very frustrating loosing to him I'm sure, but you can't blame him for going with what he's got.

well I have been told that you must walk on and off the floor the like champion. One judge told me that they had to to find one more competitor as they only took down 5 numbers and they chose the one that walked confidently off the floor.

I also got told that while waiting for events hold each other close and move around in a circle so that the judges can get a look at the number. perhaps they should have a number for both the lady and the man so it makes it easier for them to get the couples numbers.


I am not fond of black dress on women as it blend in with the man. but that is my opinion I know there are some lovely black dresses out there.

What a great idea - except of course that it would ruin the back of the dress.  How about a stick above the couple, like those numbers on rental pedal boats!

Actually, with todays technology we shouldn't need numbers at all - though the audience still needs a convenient method...
