What should I wear? Comfortable clothes. Leave the fancy for the club and come ready to maybe sweat a little depending on the rhythm of the class.
What type of shoes should I wear? Smooth sole shoes. For example Vans and Toms or something similar. Sneakers tend to have too much grip on the dance floor and remember you are going to be learning how to turn on the dance floor.
Should I wear my Heels? Totally. Its what you are going to be wearing when Social Dancing at our events. But we discourage the use of Platform heels since it is difficult to flex your feet in them. Try Flare of Stiletto style heels.
