• Proper Dance Attire

    From Daryl Stout@TBOLT to All on Thu Jan 24 00:04:37 2019
    Here is the proper square dance attire for the dance halls at many
    square dance festivals...including the National Square Dance Convention.
    Check with the festival coordinators/contacts for further details.

    SQUARE, ROUND, OR CONTRA DANCE HALLS:

    MALES: LONG SLEEVE Western Style shirts, long pants or jeans, bolo or
    scarf tie, and proper dance shoes. Do NOT wear short sleeves,
    short pants, T-shirts, or have tap shoes in non-clogging halls.

    FEMALES: Square Dance dress or skirt/blouse ensemble of reasonable length,
    petticoat, pettipants, and proper dance shoes. Do NOT wear shorts,
    pants, T-shirts, or have tap shoes in non-clogging halls. Prarie
    skirts are acceptable attire.

    CLOGGING HALLS:

    MALES: Western Style Shirts, long or short sleeve, long pants or nice
    jeans, bolo tie or scarf tie (optional), proper dance shoes with
    taps. Do NOT wear short pants of any sort, or T-shirts.

    FEMALES: Clogging/Square Dance Dress of reasonable length, or blouse/skirt
    ensemble of reasonable length, petticoat (optional in clogging
    halls), pettipants, proper dance shoes with taps. Do NOT wear
    pants, jeans, shorts, or T-shirts. Prarie skirts are acceptable
    attire in the square dance halls, but might make clogging
    difficult.

    Please understand that the REQUIRING of certain proper dance attire is
    to make all aspects of our event conducive to the atmosphere of "The
    World's Greatest Square Dance Event". If you choose to dress outside of
    the guidelines as they have been set down, you will only be putting
    your fellow CLOGGERS and SQUARE DANCERS in the position of having to
    enforce them. PLEASE, LET US ALL USE COURTESY, AND ENJOY THE CONVENTION.

    All participants entering the halls at the National Square Dance
    Convention, whether dancing or not, you MUST be in proper square dance
    attire. Those who are not may be asked to leave the premises. If you are
    not dancing, please wear proper square dance attire...you can always
    kindly tell the dancer asking you for a dance that you're sitting out for
    that tip, or resting for awhile.
