If you are attending a class for the first time you should wear something comfortable and easy to move in i.e. leggings and a t-shirt, definitely no jeans or skirts though. Bare feet or clean trainers are fine. Long hair should be tied back neatly and securely. Please bring a drink along with a sports cap lid to avoid unnecessary spillages.
Once you’ve done a few lessons it is required that you wear the correct dance school uniform which can be purchased from the school. Hoodies with individual names on are also available. Prices are available on application.
Ballroom & Latin
Footwear is the most important thing for this class. Ideally proper dance shoes should be worn – please make sure these have a sensible heel that you can walk in easily – if in doubt check before purchase. If you don’t have dance shoes to start with, then wear a shoe with a small heel. Dress should be comfortable as above. You may also wish to bring a drink.
Generally, casual, cool and comfortable clothes are a good guide.
For your feet, avoid trainers, boots or heavy rubber soled shoes. Also please avoid shoes that may slip off your feet such as mules, and definitely no flip flops! Initially, light shoes with a non-grip sole are fine. Leather soles are ideal.
As you progress with your dancing, you should invest in a pair of dance shoes – you’ll find that they make a tremendous difference. They have suede soles which provide the correct amount of resistance with the floor and will make your turns much easier.
