What you should wear to compete at the Colour Challenge

MarShere Competitions
February 23, 2023

So, you've decided to enter your first MarShere ballroom dancing competition, but you have no idea what to wear? While your teachers and studio principals are an amazing source of information we've put together a handy guide to help you out.

To make everything fairer (and cheaper) for our first competition of the year, all dancers must wear non-competitive dress - that means suits and dresses (or skirt and top) you'd wear to a nice dinner or simple practice wear only (at other competitions during the year we offer a number of costumed events).

  • A clean, crisp collared shirt with a tie to match your partner or team colour
  • Black trousers (suit pants are fine) with black socks
  • For ballroom and new vogue events, a long knee to ankle length skirt. For latin and street latin, a shorter knee length skirt
  • Make sure you are wearing appropriate underwear, with a brief or full short covering the bottom and in a matching colour to your outfit
  • Many choose to wear a leotard to help keep lines smooth
  • Appropriate dance shoes
  • BEING the Colour Challenge Comp - be sure to ADD as much of your team colour to your outfit as possible!

What should you bring to the 2023 MarShere Colour Challenge

  • Your dance shoes
  • Clothing to wear for your events
  • Decorative elements (like hats, ties, belts, scrunchies) for you to wear in your team colour
  • Money for a program (EFTPOS is not always available
  • Pens/Highlighter to mark your events in the program
  • Deodorant & Sanitary Products
  • Panadol/Nurofen
  • Drinks & Snacks
  • Positive Attitude

This is a wonderful event that bring studios together to work as team to dance for their colour rather than against each other. It's BYO Food & Drink, with a sausage sizzle operating and plenty of off street parking. It's going to be a really fun day where everyone get's allocated a different team colour!
