How to prepare

Wear comfortable clothing.

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

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

Don’t forget your bottle of water!
