Looking at the photos from the milongas, as well as the videos, you will surely notice that the women at such events look amazing. They look like true ball queens in their beautiful dresses and high-heeled shoes. Bright evening makeup and neat, charming hairstyle make the look almost perfect.
To make the process of learning Argentine tango faster and more enjoyable for you, pay special attention to the choice of clothes, shoes, hairstyles, and accessories. You don't need to dress as luxuriously for class as for milongas, but in both cases there are a number of important requirements that must be met.
The ideal option for a woman learning Argentine tango is sleeveless tops or T-shirts. Loose, wide sleeves often get tangled during dance and cause a lot of inconvenience. It is also very important that the back, starting at least from the shoulder blades, is covered. During training, you will have to put in a lot of effort, which means you can sweat. Running your hand on your back, wet with sweat, is a dubious pleasure. But if you choose the right clothes, both you and your partner will be very comfortable.
Of course, women often choose skirts or dresses for demonstrations or milongas, but if this is your first time taking an Argentine tango class, you may want to go for trousers. It is important that they are not flared or loose, do not interfere with easy movement and perform special leg movements that decorate the dance. If you do decide to choose a skirt, remember that it should be loose enough. It is important that the skirt does not get tangled around the legs, does not constrain movements, does not "take off" during turns. It is good if it is not too short, otherwise most of your attention will not be concentrated on the dance, but on the thought of whether the fabric is lifted too high.
The choice of jewelry is a separate conversation. It is better not to wear them at all than to give preference to products that can get tangled, catch on clothes, or even more so scratch the man who will dance with you. Note also the belt buckles. They should not be sharp, too large.
As for the hairstyle, it is advisable to make it smooth, especially if you have very long hair. In particular, you can make a bun - it's beautiful, fashionable and comfortable. Do not leave long hair loose or do large, voluminous hairstyles that require the use of spray and nail polish. If a man wants to hold his hand over your head, he should not hurt your hair, and even more so knock down the curls.
