What to Wear, When and Where:
For Dance Classes: Comfortable clothes and flat shoes are the best for swing dance classes. Remember, you are practicing, not performing! For beyond-beginner students, adding dance socks (or just no-show "footsies" socks") over your shoes help for swivels, slides and beyond-the-basics moves on stickier floors (not necessary at Miami Baila studio).
For Aerials Classes: Athletic clothes and sneakers are strongly recommended. A t-shirt and long pants should be your base, and pack a long-sleeved shirt. Remember, you will be repeating a move many times. Anywhere there is skin-on-skin contact can start to leave that "rug burn" effect after repetitions. Comfortable, supportive sneakers are important for being a solid base and for jumping & landing.
For Dances: This is where we encourage to dress up, especially if there is a band. DJ'd dance socials are a little more casual, but if there's an excuse to dress dapper, dances are the place for it!
Always good to bring: A towel, change of garment top, and deodorant is recommended to pack in your dancer bag, especially in Florida! We like to strive to be as fresh and hygienic as possible when partner dancing 😉 It's also good to have a second pair of shoes that have a different sole (like leather/suede bottoms vs grippy sneaker bottoms). Each dance floor is different and can change in stickiness depending on floor type, humidity, and other factors.
