Picking the Right Skirt for a Contra Dance
I think there may be more skirted guys in this video than the women. Check out the variety of skirts - from knee-length to ankle-length. I've worn skirts of all different colors and styles to Contra Dances, but always prefer ankle-length because of the flow. I usually wear long, three-tiered cotton skirts or broomstick skirts. Some guys prefer kilts while others like skirts with floral patterns - it's up to you how you want to express yourself. Skirts aren't for everyone, but usually there are a couple of skirted guys at a Contra Dance. The important thing is to find a skirt you feel comfortable in and have fun!
