Colours in Dance

With recital season really ramping up and so many costumes on the go I got to thinking about what makes us choose certain colours over others for our costumes.

Why do we gravitate towards one colour and reject another out of hand?  So I did some hunting and found some interesting incites into colour and the emotional impact it has on people.
