6 Types of Dancesport Dresses – What Does Your Dress Say About You?
One of the most glamorous aspects of dancesport is that we get to wear these amazing dresses at competitions. Every single one of us wants to to grab the attention and look the best we can for ourselves, for the audience, for our partner, and for the judges.
Together with your favorite designer of dancesport dresses, you get to create the most beautiful and showstopping dresses. But have you ever wondered what does your dress say about your personality?
1. Fringy & Cheeky
When you say short and fringy what comes to mind is ‘cha-cha-cha’ and ‘having fun. Fringes will make you want to move your hips more and have a playful attitude. Thus, you enjoy yourself, you smile a lot, you are cheeky and flirty. You are there to transform the dancefloor into your playground and win everybody over.
2. Sparkles & Luxurious
Your dress is full of crystals, beads and shiny material. When the lights are on you, the audience needs sunglasses to look at you! One thing is for sure, everyone will notice you on the dancefloor and really that is what you are going for.
But having a dress like this means that you are an elegant lady that loves to be sophisticated and glamorous. After all “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”
3. Predator & Prey
Animal print dresses are really popular and they represent very well the latin roots. A dress like this will make you think about the beats of Africa and the rhythms of Cuba.
You are feisty and powerful! When you get onto that dancefloor you want to be fierce and sure of yourself! And you will, because a dress like this will channel the predator inside of you!
4. Light & Delicate
If your dress is flowing with folded veils it means that you are a hopeless romantic, always daydreaming. Probably the rumba is your favorite dance also 😊 You are a sweet, feminine lady.
Wearing a dress like this will make you feel delicate and beautiful. Your movements will make the veils float, thus giving a graceful volume to your dance.
5. Carnival & Fun
Feathers, ruffles and brights colors! Ah, who doesn’t love a festival atmosphere on the dancefloor? Isn’t that what latin dancing is all about?
You are prepared to give all your energy on the floor. Feeling exotic will make you shake those hips and move those legs with so much power! What you love the most is spreading the positivity and excitement to everyone in the audience!
6. Sleek & Voluptuous
Wearing a skin-tight dress means that you are proud of your body! You simply inspire confidence and you are very focused. Your wish is everyone in that room to notice every little movement you make with your hips, legs, and core. You worked so much at mastering those movements…Why hide them?
If your dress is either purple, deep blue or burgundy and it’s full of ornaments and designs chandelier-like, then royalty defines you.
Purple is the color of aristocracy and wearing a ballroom dress like this one brings out the queen in you. And should feel like one! The dancefloor is yours. You are graceful but powerful, delicate but driven.
Lace, roses, or ruffles…all of them will make you think about the passionate flamenco dancers or the alluring women dancing tango.
Who said that ballroom dancing cannot have some latin passion in it?! Tango comes after all from Argentina so why not bring out that fiery personality through your dress? You are prepared to seduce and magnetize everyone with your charm.
If your dress is flowy, has soft colors like light blue, pastel pink or white, you are one of the most gentle ladies in the room! You are cut out for a fairytale story. You’re good, loving and understanding. When you enter you light-up the room through your delicate and graceful balletic allure.
