Ice Dancing Clothes - The 14 Step

Photo Copyright © JO ANN Schneider Farris
Ice dancers used to wear black at figure skating competitions. Women wore traditional skating dresses and men wore a one-piece suit that resembled a tux. Once in awhile, a dance team would wear colored attire. Times have changed. Ice dancing dresses are long and the costumes worn by ice dancers are elaborate and original. The clothes worn by ice dance teams are much more interesting than the clothes worn in the other figure skating disciplines.

It is common for skaters to wear a different costume for each dance in a skating competition. In this photo, the couple is dressed for the Fourteenstep, which is a march.
