What to Wear/Bring to Class
Kids have a thing for wanting to dress the part, so you’re advised to get beautifully adorned beaded scarfs or other accessories, and crop tops for your little one. These will make his/her movements noticeable as he/she dances.
Most people belly dance barefoot. However, you can get a pair of soft, flat dancing shoes for your kid, if in case he/she doesn’t feel comfortable dancing barefoot.
Aside from these outfits, footwear and accessories, don’t forget to pack your kid’s bag with a bottle of water, extra towel and clothing.
