For couples that dance regularly in competition or performance it is especially important to have a costume. It is one thing to dance at a party, and a different thing to dance on a stage before an audience. It is not enough to just have nice clothes on each individual performer - you need to look like a unified couple.

What makes a good stage costume for a couple? First of all, your costume must be tailor made for you - we will need measurements from both dancers. You will also need to select a fabric and a design for your costumes. Pictured below are three sets of costumes: Silk, Polka Dots, and Plaid/Stripes. Within each set are a number of elements that you can select for your costume, and each will be made from the same material you have chosen. It isn't as complicated as it seems; just follow these easy steps.

Step 1. Choose a set.

The left column shows your options for followers, the right column shows your options for leaders.

Silk set

Jumper

Basically an extremely high waisted skirt with shoulder straps that cross in the back, designed to be worn with a separate shirt. Highly recommended for aerials.

Polka Dots Set

Blouse or Dress

These can be made from silk or cotton in different colors and like the silk set option can be combined with the stretchable material.

Everyone will know that you will be dancing together when you show up in a polka dot tie that perfectly matches your followers dress.

Plaid/Stripe Set

Skirt

These skirts also come in two options for the striped set, the paneled trumpet skirt and the Zoot Skirt, and two options for the plaid set, the trumpet skirt and an A-Frame skirt.

Pants

No matter whether you choose wide bottom trousers in 30s style or straight high-waisted 40s style dress pants you will look swell next to your follower in her matching skirt.
