What should I wear to classes?

Dancing is all about moving to music so you are best to wear clothing that is easy to move in and helps keep you cool.  Having a couple of layers is a good idea so you can put layers back on after class as you start to cool down.  For our monthly practices the same rule of thumb applies.  Gentlemen, we recommend bringing a second shirt to change into if you warm up quickly – dance class is a work out remember!

The Saturday night dances are an opportunity for everyone to get a little dressed up and have a nice night out.  Again make sure what you choose to wear is easy to move in.  Dancing for four hours is great fun and all those happy people generate a lot of heat so Ladies, having a fan handy is useful to cool yourself down in between dances and Gentlemen, a couple of spare shirts come in handy to make you feel fresh all evening.

Do I need special shoes to dance?

No.  You can wear everyday shoes but we recommend they are securely attached to your foot (no slip on shoes) and do not have rubber soles (like running shoes).  This is simply to make dancing easier – you can focus on the new steps better when not having to worry about your shoes slipping off or sticking to the floor.

However, like any other hobby or sport, dancing has equipment specifically designed to help and support you.  Dancing shoes are soft and malleable to protect your feet and have a special sole that helps you move along the floor.  If you are interested in purchasing a pair, talk to one of the teachers and they can help you find the most suitable pair for your needs.

Do I need a partner to come to classes?

No. Social dancing is all about learning to lead and follow so you can dance with anyone, anytime.  During classes we rotate regularly to make sure everyone has a chance to dance with each other.
