Special dance shoes not needed but please choose shoes that are non-marking, clean-sole, closed (toe, heel and instep), some flexibility in the sole, and some means of staying on the foot (tie or strap). For safety reasons the following are not permitted in class: bare feet, stocking feet, mules, clogs, slides, platforms, sandals, and heels.
