The VP will notify you of the dress code for each comp, and the Captain will help you if you have any questions about anything or if you are worried about what to wear! But here is a general overview of what you should wear at competitions. :)
- Smooth/Standards: black dress pants, white dress shirt, black tie or vest, black belt
- Rhythm/Latins: black dress pants, black dress shirt, black belt
- Undergarments: white undershirt, black boxers, black socks
- Hair: must be out of your face/off your forehead. Long hair must be pulled back into a ponytail. Men must be clean shaven or have neatly groomed facial hair.
- Jewelry: may be worn as long as its small and tasteful (think a small cross or stud earring). No bracelets or watches. No large rings.
Women: (dresses must be approved by the female captain or coordinator)
- Smooth/Standards: a longer dress (past your knees) or top and long skirt: Think elegant and graceful. Prom dresses are excellent for this.
- Make sure that you can lunge in your dress.
- Make sure that you will not step on or in your hem while dancing. Remember that you have soft knees in smooth/standards.
- Rhythm/Latins: a short dress or top and short skirt: Think fun and flirty. Oftentimes homecoming dresses or party dresses work best.
- Undergarments: correct bra/undies (no bra straps showing!), black spankies (short tight shorts (think cheerleading or volleyball))
- Hair: Your hair needs to be off your face AND neck. Typically, updos such as buns and French twists are worn. Talk to your captain if you’re confused!
- Make-up: You do not need to go crazy with your make-up, but you should wear enough that your features stand out on the dance floor. Talk to your captain if you need help.
- Jewelry: Your jewelry must be tasteful and ought to match your dress. Sparkles are ok, just don't overdo it. Stay away from bracelets and large rings. Also, make sure you can whip your head around without your earrings flying off or your necklace flipping to the back.
- Keep in mind that light reflective materials on clothing are NOT allowed at several competitions. To eliminate the chance of being disqualified for your clothing we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you do NOT buy anything that sparkles to be your primary competition garb.
