What to Wear

Wear comfortable clothing for the instructional part of the day. If you do not have proper ballroom or practice shoes, dress shoes are your next best option however, you can get by with hip hop shoes or dance sneakers as well.

Make sure you are wearing clean shoes that are not too slippery and not too grippy; both options are a tripping and falling hazard.

If sneakers are your only option, I would suggest you wear a sort of dance sock over your shoes as shown on this website https://www.thedancesocks.com/. You can fashion your own out of an old pair of socks. The important part is that the sock enables you to have smooth pivoting when on the the balls of the feet and still have stability when the entire foot is on the floor.

Happy Dancing! :)
