The world of dance is exciting, and Arthur Murray Lincolnshire Dance Center makes it simple to dive in – even if you’ve never set foot on the dance floor. If you’re not sure what to wear to dance lessons, these simple tips will ensure you’re comfortable and ready to start dancing.
We want you to feel your best when you are at the studio, ready to learn and have fun. Be sure to choose an outfit that promotes both confidence and fluid movement. This will allow you to bend, twist and glide with ease. Skirts or yoga pants are a good choice for women. A comfortable dress shirt and slacks are a good choice for men. It’s important to be comfortable. But at the same time, you want to look refined and look the part of a social dancer.
It goes without saying that your shoes are one of the most important components of your outfit. You can choose from several options based on your dance goals. Special ballroom shoes are available to fit any budget from a wide variety of online vendors. Ladies should select open toed shoes for rhythm and Latin dancing and closed toed shoes for smooth and standard dances such as the waltz and the foxtrot. Men can choose from a variety of shoes styles, but beginners should avoid patent leather. If you’re not ready to purchase dance shoes, then any comfortable, smooth sole shoes will work.
Preparing for a wedding? Learning in the shoes you will wear on your big day is a wise move, as it will give you confidence in your steps. If you plan to develop skills in several dance styles, you might want to invest in suede- or leather-soled shoes designed precisely with dance floors in mind. Otherwise, standard dress shoes or low-heeled shoes should be fine. Rubber soles aren’t always conducive to the smooth movement required by many dance styles.
The most important thing about your dance attire is that you feel comfortable and confident. Now all that’s left is to schedule your first dance lesson. Learn more about the dances taught at Arthur Murray Lincolnshire Dance Center and take advantage of our new student offer today to get started.
