SALSEEK: Tell us about your costume.
REBECCA: It is a white, sleeveless, one piece costume, with different sized red stones scattered in front and behind. There is a small flower motif which occurs in the neck and wrist piece as well as the front of the costume and it is open on the right side while the left side drapes around the body and yet can be worn pinned up to the shoulder for another look.
SALSEEK: What do you love most about this costume and why?
REBECCA: I love how the costume makes me feel. It is sexy enough in that it highlights the dancers legs, yet graceful in the way it drapes and flows around the body of the dancer.
