What to wear

It is best to wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move easily when you dance. Shoes with a small heel that fit well are recommended for ladies. Sling back shoes are not recommended. It is best not to wear trainers or shoes that have rubber soles as they tend to stick to the floor. If possible men should wear shoes that have leather soles.
