What to Wear

Looking the part in dance is vital. You are more likely to dance in that style and feel that style if you are dressed for that style of dance.

What NOT to wear

  • No jewellery – we don’t want anything to break or anyone to get injured.
  • No fringe in face – wiping hair from face will be a distraction and can be a bad habit.
