    I think that dress would be very pretty. Although, since I have no rear end, it might not look that good on me lol. And even if I did, I don't know if I would want my rear end to look like that in a dress lol. But that's just me though lol. I do think it's very pretty if you have the right figure for it! ;)

    I've been really happy with the pants I ordered from http: //www.dancesportballgowns.com/ [moderated: latingal - inactivate commercial link]. Although the site only lists Latin pants, they made me a pair of Smooth/Standard pants.

    Hey all,

    Just a gentle reminder, please do not post active commercial links in this thread. We generally test a link for "commercial" status by seeing if there is a "buy" button for the product being discussed on the page.

    Thanks!

    Sorry. I didn't realize that was the policy. Won't happen again.

    For latin I wear leggings under a short skirt and a form fitting stretch top. My instructor wants to see my rib cage, hip movement, and ankles for turn out. When we move to smooth, I just pull a circle skirt over the short skirt.

    Good Selection of Practise Clothes

    Back Bay Dancewear online (we aren't allowed to post URLs but you can Google the) has a good selection of clothes for practise.

    Scroll down to the Ballroom Apparel selection.

    Could I ask what footwear people are wearing to ballroom practice. I have an injury and need full support for my feet any suggestions.

    Welcome to DF!

    When I hurt my foot, I wore dance sneakers for a while. I don't like them otherwise--balance is too different from heels--but they allowed me to dance while my foot was healing.

    Depending on the injury, a regular pair of low-heeled lace-up practice shoes might work, too.

    Welcome to DF Ginger. Yes, I think it depends on the inujury you have and what type of dancing you are doing. When I injured my foot, I actually had problems with shoes that had lower heels (rather than higher).

    Thanks so much for your very kind welcomes and advice. I have a condition called plantar fascia. It is very painful and it is recommended that you do not over use the foot while you have it but my love for dancing means I tend to ignore the good advice. I am attending an orthopaedic clinic weekly. Thankfully I have gone from 3 visits down to 1 per week but while walking is far less painful I have no results yet when I am dancing. The first half hour is excruciating and can bring me to tears. Its effecting my timing and consintration. We are starting competition next month and egar to find some comfort for our practice sessions and the comp itself. [/FONT]

    When I first started, I thought that I would need to get some great practice wear off the Capezio or Chrisanne website...however, I was advised to check out all the teenage stores et voila! I found jazz pants (capri and regular) at Charlotte Russe for $10 each, t-shirts and the practice skirt, I found at Macy's in the junior section. Be creative :) x x x I think I got 4 pants, 1 skirt, 3 t-shirts for about 70 bucks or so. Not bad I thought when a "real" skirt can run you up to $100.
