What to wear?
The Studio is fully air conditioned, but you’ll probably get hot, so layers are good. We suggest neat comfortable clothing – preferably NOT gym wear.
As to footwear, the top of the “wish list” is leather soled dance shoes, but many new dancers don’t have them (yet ;-).
Ladies, any comfortable shoe, but avoid platform soles (no flexibility), plastic soles (they slide on the polished wood floors), or shoes that don’t capture your heel (might come off in a spin). A court shoe works just fine.
Men, again, any comfortable shoe, preferably with a leather soles.
In any case, even sneakers will be OK for your first Workshops, and then you can decide which way you’d like to go.
These workshops can be paid by using your DanceCard:
- One only Workshop – $20;
- DanceCard of 5 Workshops – $80 ($16 per Workshop);
- DanceCard of 11 Workshops – $160 (about $14.50 per Workshop)
DanceCards last 12 months. Every time you attend a Workshop we “click” your DanceCard. If say, you need to work and can’t come along to your regular Workshop, YOU DON’T LOOSE IT. This way you come along to suit YOUR schedule!
