What should I wear in the Competition?

Each event has it’s own styles and expectations of a more formal or casual approach to their competitions.
The best guide to what to wear at an event is to look at what your event staff and organisers.   If they are wearing a ‘Suit and tie’ then maybe you should too. Equally, if they dress ‘Smart Casual’… you get the picture. In a final, dress to impress your partner.

Shoes – Can be a big point of contention for competitions.  You should wear what makes your feet look the best, not necessarily the ones that feel most comfortable.

Dancers with ‘Good footwork can be easily forgiven a more casual shoe.  If footwork is not a strong point then wear a more formal shoe with a suede sole to get the best from your feet and not distract any attention from your dancing.
