"Colour and design are extremely
important when it comes to what suits the
dancer. All details have to be considered,
from hair colour and complexion to height.
"If Mr Sevenson can't meet a dancer
to observe such things, he will request a
photo -- normally in the dress they are
currently wearing or just street clothes
to get an idea of what would or wouldn't
suit," the spokesperson said.
"Dancers have to feel special to be
able to perform at their utmost ability.
Confidence comes from within and if the
dress for ladies or the men's outfit make
them feel great and they love what they are
wearing, then the battle is half won."
The National Capital Dancesport
Championships will be held in Canberra
from June 26 to 27, with Mr Sevenson's
designs being worn by dancers across
all levels, including David Bryne
and Jeremy Baslile. The two days of
dance magic showcases international
professional and amateur dancers
competing in Latin American, ballroom
and new vogue dance styles.
Since its inception as a championship
in 1994, it has attracted about 400 couples
from around Australia, New Zealand and
the world. The event is one of the biggest
annual Dancesport championships held
in Australia and has established itself as a
must attend event for anyone involved in
Dancesport. Recently recognised by the
International Olympic Committee as a
sport, it is soon expected to be included in
the Olympic program.
Spectators will enjoy competitors
performing the seductive rumba, the
Paso Doble', the popular cha cha cha
from Cuba and the boogie woogie beat
of the jive. For those who appreciate the
elegance and style of ballroom, the waltz
and foxtrot will impress with the skill and
beauty portrayed by these dances. The
stunning Latin American costumes and
the elegance and style associated with
the flamboyant ballroom gowns are also
expected to dazzle spectators.
