    Custom making ballroom dresses in China?

    Glad to have helped. Try in Vietnam. Thomas is very good. Being a pro dancer himself, he knows the dance world. He will put swarovski stones on your dress if requested or try a new small designer in Netherlands Amelia Petrillo (also on Facebook). Her prices are pretty good and the...

    Hi SdSalsaGuy, Thanks for your interest. I live in Ireland and I'm 5ft 8" (173cm) tall wos. So I guess a guy that 5ft 11"(180cm) or taller would be a good match for dancing. I would move if there was the right dance partnership there, as I would very much like to be out on the dance...
