I have just heard that from 2015 the new rule for pairs all ages is that their will be no stones allowed on costumes from inter and champs pairs
What will we do with the costumes so don't spend to much on your pairs now xx

Yes I heard this too. Is it definately true? I supose you could sell the costumes individually as solo costumes or would you be allowed to have two costumes the same on the floor?

I think you have to be a bit wary of rumours about new rules.
Often heard that a new rule is coming in, but there hasn't always been any substance behind it.
The rule re pairs suits would have to be passed at an adfp general annual meeting & with the problem of selling on old stoned pairs suits, it's unlikely that members would pass it.
It does sound like a good money saving idea, but even now, you do see champ & inter pairs dancing in plain leotards & doing every bit as well as the dancers in expensive suits. Have you notice more & more dancers are wearing plain for slow & it isn't going against them?
I'd ask your dance teacher about it, they can contact the adfp directly, or if you're at a comp with an adfp stall perhaps ask there?
Not sure that this helps much, but I honestly wouldn't put too much weight behind it, unless you hear it from an adfp professional who has attended one of the area meetings.

Yes thanks this helped a lot. I have noticed a lot of kids are wearing plain dancewear for pairs in inters and that's why I was wondering if there was any truth behind it.

Hi,

I was wrong!

The rule has been made official,
It has been passed at the September AGM.
Here's the wording

Pairs

With effect from 1st January 2015 all Intermediate/Championship pairs to go to plain outfits - equivalent to Starter rules Beginners pairs dress to stay the same.


I'll attached the link to the adfp website:

It is a shame really, I love to see the girls dancing in the costumes but we have some stunning dancers whatever they wear.
