Who is more likely to get a dance… a well presented guy who smells good or someone dripping sweat with a drenched shirt?  Ladies, it’s not just the guys, long nails and garlic breath after a good pizza aren’t that hot either.

We have gathered a list of tips to keep yourself well presented for dancing:

  • Smell good. Have a shower if possible before coming to classes and dance parties. Make sure that you wear a clean shirt and if it’s summer or you sweat heavily, bring extra shirts.  Put on deodorant and bring it along with you just in case.  Some dance venues will have a spare deodorant spray.
  • Halitosis otherwise known as bad breath can stop your dance partner in their tracks. Make sure you floss and brush your teeth (mouth wash is optional). You can also chew gum but avoid looking like a cow chewing cud. Breath mints work but they don’t last that long. Try not to eat garlic, onions or anything spicy just before dancing and avoid gassy foods as well. Drink lots of water and keep yourself hydrated as dancing will dehydrate you and make your mouth dry.
  • Keeping your nails short is important for both men and women. You’re constantly holding each others hands while dancing and short nails make it more comfortable for each other.  Avoid the guilt of scratching your partner if a move doesn’t work so well, there are better ways to leave an impression.
  • Use a towel to keep yourself dry and presentable. This is especially important at dance parties and in summer.
  • If you are sick, be considerate and rest at home until you’re feeling better. We’ll miss you, but we’ll still be there next week. As the saying goes “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”.

These small tips will contribute to a positive experience for everyone. If you’re looking to be popular on the dance floor, do these simple things.
