What to Wear and Bring to Class
Your kids can wear a simple combination of loose shirt and sweatpants. They could just also wear a simple dress or leather-soled shoes.
However, in the succeeding sessions, they might be encouraged to start wearing a dress or a semi-formal clothing, as well as dancing shoes. This allows your kids to fully feel the vibe of Latin dancing. It’s also a way for them to start preparing for the dance show after the term.
