Yey - you're doing a strictly dance hen party! You have an amazing choice of costume ideas to choose from.
Do you dress up in sparkly dresses or go for the Lycra catsuit - Ola style? Anything with feathers or sequins on it is fab and a few diamantes won't go amiss. You could even have a get together before hand to 'strictlify' an old party dress with a few net skirts and some stuck on feathers & sequins. I once made a samba costume out of a bra & pants, some strings of beads that I got off ebay and some feather boas. People liked it!
The charleston section is also a good inspiration - why not come dressed as flapper girls - then you can even wear your outfits on to dinner afterwards. We also do a bit of Paso so you could rustle up a flamboyant flamenco dress for the bride to wear (again try eBay)!
Hair & Make up - you can have lots of fun doing a strictly makeover on the bride. Whether you gel her hair up into a ballroom bun or go curl crazy - Samba style, there are so many different looks. A 1950's ponytail has a jive feel to it or go for finger curls and a low bun with headband for the Charleston look. And you can't have enough glitter on your face so stock up on the Barry M and some super-long falsies!
Footwear - bare feet or trainers are recommended. You can wear dance shoes if you have them but I'd avoid high heels as you will probably want to save your feet for your night out so keep it comfy for the dance lesson.
Hope our Cheerleading Company costume tips help you find your dance hen party outfits & we can't wait to see your costume photos : )
