Each class will teach you a range of movements so you are in control and can choose how much embellishment you want to add to make it your own.

How to prepare

Wear comfortable clothing.

Hip scarves are encouraged but not required. Speak with the teacher about where to buy one if you are interested in dancing with one.

Participants usually dance in their bare feet, but soft dance shoes, such as ballet or jazz shoes may be acceptable also.

As we move into the colder months of our changeable Scottish weather. Please wear layers to the class to keep sufficiently warm, as we are still continuing to ensure ventilation.
