that salsa is taking over your life if when shopping, you
end up buying more clothes for salsa dancing than for work.
However, some items that look great on the rack, may end up
distracting you on the dance floor. So how can you tell if
the clothes are salsa-proof? Read on.
First, select the garment. Second, go
through your Clothing Calisthenics (link to
Selecting the garment.
Ever find yourself doing the
annoying and unsexy move where you have tug down your skirt
as youíre dancing? Some dresses look perfect for salsa
dancing, but end up riding up your thigh throughout the
dance. Despite what the boys say, itís not the kind of
attention we want to deal with. Find skirts or dresses that
have a little slit on at least one side. This will allow the
skirt to give and move with your legs.
Some skirts have built-in
shorts underneath. Love them. Or you could wear boy-cut
bikini bottoms or dance shorts to ensure that allís covered.
For performances, or if you
might be doing dance moves that might cause your skirt or
dress to flare or reveal more than comfortable, wear dance
pants (kind of like boy-cut shorts). Itís best if the dance
pants match your skirt color. Otherwise, basic black works
well. You can find these at any dance store.
Another favorite of mine is
low-riding short shorts. Very sexy. They accentuate the long
legs. No worries about exposing anything if you bend over,
Panty lines are ugly. Invest in thongs,
ladies, especially if youíre gonna wear butt-hugging pants.
Alternatively, go without panties and wear pantyhose
instead. You can cut the waistband off to wear under
low-rider pants. I think I got this tip off of Edie the
Salsa Freakís site.
Low-riding pants are more
forgiving on the figure than hi-waistline pants or skirts.
Itís easier to see a bulging belly or love-handles if youíre
wearing pants with a high or normal waistline, than if
youíre wearing pants that ride a little lower on the hips.
Hip huggers are definitely more comfortable to wear if you
know youíre going to eat prior to dancing.
