- What should I wear for class?
Many people coming to their first class ask “what should I wear?” Well the most important thing to me is comfort, so wear something you can move freely in. Trousers or skirt it does not matter. The full basic black Tribal Skirts are available from the souk as are exercise pants and tops. Something to tie round your hips is a good idea. It will help make you more aware of them. Having a belt with coins is a bonus but not essential, they add a percussive element to your dance as well as looking good! Foot wear is optional, avoid trainers and other heavy inflexible soles. I personally prefer bare feet unless the floor is rough. Dance slippers, jazz shoes, Irish soft or Scottish dance shoes work well with the costume.
