What to Wear to Dance Class
Feel confident as a dancer
The summer is coming to a close, and it’s time to look at your dance schedule for the fall. If you are new to dance, you are probably excited about your future training… and a little bit nervous.
How can you deal with this excitement and nervousness?
Figure out what you are going to wear to dance class in advance.
This will remove one of your stressors and help you feel more confident in class. Plus, you won’t have to worry about what you’re wearing, and you can concentrate on your training. Here are a few tips to help you get started.
1. Call the studio.
Simple. Call the studio and ask the instructor what students wear to class. They may have a specific dress code so be sure to find out. And if you need something that you can’t afford, ask if they know of any students who have used shoes or used clothes you can have. They may even have some items for you in the lost and found!
2. Visit the studio or go online.
If you really want a good idea of what the students where to the dance classes you are going to take, visit the studio and look at what the dancers are wearing. Most studios have a waiting area where you can watch the classes. Not only will you be able to see the dance techniques you’ll be taught, but you can also see first-hand what the other students are wearing.
Also go to the dance studio’s website. Many times, the studios will post videos of their studio and dancers. In the videos, you’ll be able to see what the other students are wearing.
3. Visit a thrift shop, look online or call other studios.
If you know you need a certain outfit for dance class but have limited funds, visit your local thrift shops. Many times, you’ll find used dance shoes and almost new, workout clothes. The best part is, you won’t pay much, and it doesn’t really matter because you’ll just be working out in the clothes and shoes anyway!
Another way to find used dance shoes and clothing is to look online. Search for the kind of shoes and clothing you need on eBay or Amazon and see if you can’t find used or almost new clothes and shoes in your size and within your budget. If that doesn’t work, call all of the dance studios in your area and ask if they have any used dance shoes you can buy. Also ask if they have recommendations about where you can get affordable, dance clothes.
Cool Dance Clothes and Shoes are Waiting For You
Starting a new dance class can be exciting, but it can also be expensive. To cut down on your nerves, prepare what you are going to wear in advance. Also, look for clothes and shoes you can afford. Make the effort to contact the dance studio and look online for bargains. This way, you’ll find some great outfits and dance shoes to wear to class without ruining your budget. And most important, you’ll fee more confident as you start your new dance classes.
