Dress Up or Dress Down

Here are some guidelines for your consideration.

Clothes Choices for Ballroom Dance

For classes wear clothes that are comfortable and enjoyable to dance in! Ladies may wear short skirts or longer slit skirts. The movement of the skirt can create fun and drama in your dancing! Be careful about wearing baggy sleeves or jewelry, as they can get in the way especially in the faster Rhythm dances.

Gentleman may wear button up shirts or T-shirts with dress slacks. Regardless of how informal the class or event is, always wear dance shoes. Sneakers or other rubber bottom shoes can inhibit movement and actually be dangerous! Ballroom dance shoes are made to be flexible so that the dancer can “feel” the floor.
