What to Wear

We want you to feel comfortable dancing! Your clothes should always allow for flexible movements. Wear comfy attire that flows with your body. Avoid tight fitting clothes that will restrict your motion. A collared shirt, dress pants, loose dresses and skirts are preferred for rehearsal performances. Although we live in Florida, we recommend wearing dress shoes. Please avoid extra high heels and beach sandals. Wearing shoes with support and a small low to medium heels are optimal for both men and women. 2.5" heel is standard for women's shoes. Dance skirts are optional.
