What to wear
We recommend wearing clothes that allow you to move that you aren't afraid to sweat in. Consider wearing clothes that allow the instructor to see your lines. Ballet shoes are recommended, but classes can be taken barefoot or in jazz shoes. Pointe shoes may be worn with instructor approval.
