  • No partner required

  • Wear casual layered clothing

  • Bring a water bottle and small towel

  • Shoe Policy: Carry with you some non-marking, flat, flexible, closed-toe/heel/instep shoes that slide easily on the floor but provide sufficient traction to be safe when turning.  Please plan to change into your dance shoes upon arrival. This helps Chatham Community Center keep their flooring clean and in great shape for everyone to enjoy.  Not permitted in class:  sandals, mules/slides/clogs, platforms, slingbacks, heels.  Please make sure your shoes have some means of staying on your foot (tie or strap). Floor conditions vary from classroom to classroom and can be affected by humidity and other factors.  Some students carry a dance bag with more than one type of shoe so they can match their choice of shoes to the current floor conditions.



Live, Love, Line Dance!
