What Should I Wear?
You should wear something that is easy to move in and comfortable. Even though Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Raleigh does not have a dress code, most of our students wear what could be considered “casual”. Shoes are probably the most important thing to consider.

We recommend you to wear comfortable shoes with “smooth” or leather that stays on your feet well; shoes that have adjustable straps or lace up are perfect.
