    Great news! I'm sure it will be lots of fun. Just relax and don't beat yourself up if you don't remember everything at once. Your body needs some time to figure out those moves again.

    Daimona, the cloth I'm using is some sort of cotton mix, so they look a bit like linnen from afar. Have no idea what they're made of since I bought the fabric at a second hand store (love second hand! i often find more things there than in a regular shop and for for very little coin!)

    I hope the nervousness will go away ^^

    No - I'd call those pantyhose. Skin tight, stretchy pants. I have a couple of pair in lyrca which you can dry overnight for workshops, and a couple of thicker warmer sets for winter.

    Personally, I like to be able to see students' knees. Harem pants tend to be too loose. (But not as bad as a skirt)

    Kashmir, I'm aware of that and many instructors prefer "clear vision", but either this kind of pants or no dancing at all, I have to take care of my self-issues and how I'm looking too. I don't have even the legging-type of pants at home unless I use a long dress or skirt (hate when my thighs are chafing eachother) but I would never dream about wearing only the leggings no matter if they're seethrough or not. I'm not that comfortable in my own body...

    But there's also differences in harem pants and harem pants, those are not very wide, they have the same widht almost from top to bottom but they're not extreme. I made them so they would work both for dancing and doing yoga så I had to make sure they allow me to move, but not being so floppy they're in the way. Pics will be posted ^^

    Have fun!!! I miss taking classes but there is nothing local at all for me to take at my level or above. I'm learning using videos I'm purchasing and online instruction. Ah the bain of living on a small island.
