3 Ways Costume Design Impacts Dance Performance, Manhattan, New York

When you’re working on your costume design for an upcoming dance performance, it’s important to take into account how this will impact the show. While being able to move freely is a high priority, you also want to convey the right message to the audience. Consider the following three ways you can ensure you are getting the most out of your performance.

How Your Costume Impacts Your Dancing

1. Style Expresses Emotions

When performing a dance, your costume is part of the audience’s first impression of you. Send the right message by selecting a costume design that expresses your message through color, material, and accessories. For example, if the piece is somber, you may want to opt for subtle blues and articles that will flow naturally with you as you perform. Meanwhile, something upbeat should be represented by a costume in brighter, happier colors to shine with it.

2.  Comfort

In addition to providing comfort, stretchy fabrics such as velvet and mesh are available in a wide range of colors and patterns, making it easy to make them a part of your performance. A fabric such as spandex can also help keep you cool and absorb any perspiration as you perform.

3. Confidence

If your costume doesn’t fit properly or gets in the way of your movement, that could hinder your performance. When your costume design presents the right message and is easy to move around in, you can go into your dance confident that you are capable of performing at your best ability.
