Required Equipment

Dance shoes are not required. Any comfortable indoor shoe is fine, however the sole should NOT be rubber (running shoes) as they tend to stick and make it difficult to turn/pivot, etc.

 

What to wear? Comfortable clothing.  Ladies, watch out for hair accessories and big jewellery as they can get caught during turns. Skirts should not be too short or tight as they may restrict movement. Sweaters or loose fitting tops may catch as well. Please note that some people may be more dressed up than others, especially if coming from work, but jeans and t-shirt are fine too…

 

Dress as if you are going to a party or social, that way you'll be more in the mood to dance!

1) Participants must dance at all times
