Dance Team Costumes-1950’s Style

This month I was hired by Stage Presence for Dancers to create 1950’s style dresses for the dance team mini division. It has been so much fun working with the instructors at the studio to bring their vision to life.

The dresses are all reminiscent of 50’s housewives. All were made from cotton fabrics with zippered closures for easy dressing. Each dress has an individual personality. Some have sleeves, others are sleeveless. Neckline are scoop or square, and a few have collars. Buttons adorn the bodices of some, and one dress features a split skirt. The colors and patterns are mismatched with just enough in common to flow beautifully next to one another.

I was able to watch the girls practice their competition routine in their dance team costumes a few weeks ago. It was fabulous! Each dancer has a crinoline skirt to make the dress full, plus a one-of-a-kind accessory to add individuality and quirkiness.

The team has their first Dance America competition on November 1. I look forward to hearing about how it went! This is a wonderful group of talented girls. I wish them all the best of luck!
