Dance conventions can be exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time. They’re a great place to meet and connect with choreographers and other inspiring dancers. These connections are extremely important because one day you could find yourself working with a choreographer that you met at a convention. So you will want to make a good first impression to everyone in attendance as well as stand out from the crowd. That’s where your outfit choice comes in.
It can get pretty hot in a room full of dancers all vying for there own space to dance. That’s why a fun and comfortable bra top is a good starting place for your outfit-of-the-day. Something brightly colored can catch the choreographer’s eye, then all you have to do is let your personality shine. But no matter the color you pick, the most important thing is that you feel great in your clothes. So whether that is a black bra top or a yellow one, you can feel free to dance your heart out.

Boy shorts can also be a great way to combat the heat of the room as well as show off your personality. A plain top and brightly colored shorts can just as easily bring attention your way as a matching top and bottom can. It’s all about showing off your lines and showing off your confidence.

Let’s say that you don’t want to show that much skin. That’s okay too! A great pair of legging can go a long way in terms of comfort. Let your personality shine through everything you wear and you’re sure to make a great impression to everyone you meet. You can find leggings and dance pants here.
Let’s not forget your feet here. What you put on your feet is very important in a convention. Usually, the classes are on a carpet so please whatever you do don’t dance barefoot. Some people will just wear socks, but jazz shoes are a good alternative. The footwear will depend on the class you are taking, so plan ahead and make sure you have all the shoes you need for all the classes. That means pack your tap shoes, jazz shoes, hip-hop shoe… you know what just to be on the safe side, pack all the shoes.
Now, this isn’t part of your outfit but it is important. You need something to keep your shoes, hairpins, coverups, water bottle, and other accessories that you brought all together. Too many times things are lost or left behind because they fell out of a bag. So make sure that whatever bag you bring is big enough for all your things. If you don’t have a bag click here to find some.
More important than what you choose to wear is continuing to wear it throughout the day. If you choose to wear a blue tank top keep the tank top on, even if it gets hot. Choreographers end up associating the dancer with what they are wearing so if you take away the tank top, the Choreographers will likely forget what they thought of your dancing because they didn’t see Blue Tank Top after the water break. Overall no matter what you wear, wear it with confidence, a smile, and let your dancing do the rest.
