Design elements can make or break a competition Ballgown, Latin, Country or skate dress.

What's a dancer or skater to do?

If your dress has too many design elements, the audience gets confused as to where on the dress they should look.

Too few key elements and the viewer gets bored and quickly looks away.

What's a dancer or skater to do?

Find a nice balance of design elements for your body shape and size, pair them well and watch the magic happen on the floor or in the rink.

P.S. Latin and two-step dancers, Ice and roller skaters -- don't turn away.

The design elements discussed on this ballgown can be used for you type of dress also!
