STUFF FOR CLASS:

Shoes:
These are your most important tool for dancing. Make sure they are comfortable, that you feel stable walking in them and that they stay on your feet. If they are hard to walk in, they will be very difficult to dance in. If your shoes are too big or have an open-back, your foot may come out of the shoe while turning.

Ladies: Smooth-soled shoes with a comfortable heel; no open-back shoes (no slip-ons or mules) or shoes with sticky soles.
Men: Smooth-soled shoes with a slight heel; no sticky rubber soled shoes or tennies (you know, the ones that screech on the floor if you try to turn)


The best shoes for dancing are, of course – dance shoes. The soles of the shoes are thin and have suede on the bottom. The suede soles help you glide as well as grip the floor for dancing. Do not wear dance shoes outside, as that will ruin the soles. Also, clean the soles regularly to keep them in good shape. Visit the “Shop” page for dance shoes.

Clothing:
Wear clothes that are comfortable, allow you to move and that you don’t mind perspiring in. If it’s cold, wear layers so you can take a layer off after you warm up from dancing. Suggestion: try wearing light-weight or synthetic blends versus 100% heavy cotton. Cotton blend, like cotton w/ spandex will dry faster and not stay as “wet” from sweating. Although 100% heavy cotton may feel good, once it gets wet from sweating, it stays wet against your skin for a long time and can be uncomfortable. If you don’t like synthetic material, at least make sure it’s light weight cotton or, bring an extra top/shirt to change into after class.

Ladies: If you wear a strappy shouldered top, make sure the straps stay up on your shoulders when you move around. It’s difficult to do partner moves when you’re pulling up your straps. Try not to wear long flowing sleeves or big clunky jewelry that may get in the way while dancing.
Men: Short sleeved shirts are usually preferable, since some ladies are not comfortable touching bare shoulders or seeing underarms at close range. :o)

Water & Towel:
We really move in these classes! Bring a water bottle and towel to class, especially if you know you sweat a lot!

Class Etiquette:
Here are some tips which will help make everyone’s experience in class as enjoyable as possible:

1.
Be respectful, courteous and considerate to others in class – everyone is in class to learn and have fun. Class is not a nightclub environment, so please refrain from getting too personal with a classmate. Keep it respectful.
2.
Please be on time – we start class with the ever important warm-up, which reviews steps from the previous weeks. This helps you get the most out of class. If you are late, please take a space in the back row so as not to disturb others. If you need to leave early, inform the instructor before class.
3.
Be sure to check your name off on the class roster on the clipboard in the back. It eliminates taking roll – which means more class time for everyone.
4.
Do not talk while the instructor is talking - it disrupts and slows down the class, since you and others may not hear the instructions. Also, rotate partners promptly to keep the class moving along.
5.
Turn off Cell Phones – please turn off your ringers and pagers during class and if you must take a call, please excuse yourself from class so as not to disturb others.
6.
7.
If you have a cold, please do not come to class
NO VIDEO TAPING of class.
8.
Grooming – we are in close contact while partner dancing, so, in consideration to your fellow classmates, please practice good hygiene and refrain from heavy use of colognes or perfumes. Also, fresh breath is always appreciated, so bring gum or mints to class (no alcohol or onion breath please!).
9.
Do not correct others in class. Sometimes your help may not be appreciated by others or you may be explaining the movement incorrectly. Leave the instructions and the directions to the instructor(s).
