FAQs

What to wear?
When attending classes, the most important thing is to be comfortable and to wear something you can easily move about in - jeans and t-shirt is absolutely fine. Some of our weekend club nights specify a dress code, but there is no dress code for our weekly classes.
Shoes?
Beginners: Comfortable every-day shoes are fine when you are just starting out. Make sure you have something which stays securely on your feet (eg. no flip flops!) and which you can spin easily in (very high heels or trainers with sticky soles are not recommended!). After a while, you may want to invest in some dance shoes from the Lindy Hop Shop.
Dancers: We recommend leather soled shoes
