What Should I Wear?

At our studio, we want your private dance lessons in North York to be relaxing and fun. There is no enforced dress code of any sort for our students from the ankles up. We do recommend some shoes appropriate for dancing, however. If you do not have any dance shoes, please wear a shoe that doesn’t grip the floor heavily (boots, large tread shoes) or is a sandal/flip-flop without any heel support (you will be taking steps backwards, which will cause your foot to slip out).
