Lol! Ok, before things get to out of hand.... I am 32 lol, and I'm not a teenager lol. And I had just showed my parents that are visiting tapes of my recital as to which I happened to have on a short Latin skirt. Well, they just absolutely loved my dancing and they loved watching the other people that attend my studio, but they kept commenting on the short skirt lol. Parents will be parents I guess. But I tried to explain to them the theories as to why you want your skirts to be somewhat short in Latin, and how you also want them to be somewhat short and flowy etc. for dances like the Swing, and I explained to them how our studio director will check out your costume first before you go up on stage to see if it's appropriate. They sort of understood, but you know... they are old-fashioned lol. And thankfully a couple of the other instructors had on short skirts almost exactly like mine, so they sort of backed down. But anyways, does anyone else have this problem? I know on DWTS a lot of their outfits were short and skimpy, mine weren't, but they were still considered short by my parents. How do you all handle these types of comments when it comes to your costumes? I guess I'm just trying to figure out better ways to explain our dress codes etc. Thanks!
