What do I wear to a fitness class?

You can wear any type of fitness workout clothes from sweat pants, shorts, tank tops, t-shirts; anything comfortable and cool (as you will sweat a lot). As for shoes, wear cross-trainers or dance shoes – anything that will give you support. Dance sneakers such as Bloch or Capezio are an excellent choice for some people. We do not recommend bare feet or sock-feet for class due to lack of support and safety concerns. We also recommend you bring a towel and water to class.

What if I don’t have any experience in dancing or with fitness?

You don’t need any dance experience. Just come and enjoy the fun, each song has a routine that has different steps that repeat. Each time you come it gets easier and easier. Usually by the third or fourth time you feel comfortable and are able to relax and enjoy the dance fitness workout!
