What should I wear to my first dance lesson?
Dancing is about movement and enjoyment. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that is lightweight, will not inhibit movement and is most of all, comfortable. Please do no wear athletic shoes or sandles. Ladies, we recommend a shoe with a heel. Gentlemen, a dress shoe with a leather-type sole is best.
Do I need dance shoes?
Dance shoes are recommended, but not required.
Ladies: we recommend a shoe with a heel. No flip-flops, sandals, backless shoes or tennis shoes. Take time to make sure your pants, skort or skirt allow you to move freely with large steps.
Gentlemen: we recommend wearing a lightweight dress shoe with a soft sole. No tennis shoes, as the rubber soles will restrict movement. No hard-plastic soled shoes, as they will be slick on the dance floor.
What is the cost?

What if I'm a little shy or nervous?
