Question from Katrina
Is there any dress code or anything I need to bring?
Answer from Salit C. Verified Educator
You should wear form-fitting clothes that are comfortable to move in, and bring a bottle of water. You will dance barefoot, or with flat dance shoes, and be provided with a coin hip scarf to use during class, unless you want to bring your own. See you in class! Salit
