What you need to bring to the first class
Be sure to wear comfortable supportive shoes: no sling backs or high heels, except the wide one inch heels. Soles should not be rubber as these mark the floor and do not allow safe free movement. Trainers are not suitable but split sole dace shoes are ideal once you decide this dance form is for you. Otherwise, just make sure the soles allow you to swivel without sticking. Trousers and top would be fine; if a skirt is preferred, then it should allow plenty movement. If you need glasses to complete your Student Learning Record, then please bring these with you and a pen.
