No, you don’t. Many people come from work, or the gym. Just bring comfortable clothing that you feel like you can move and feel relaxed. No need to dress yourself up. For shoes we suggest fitted shoes (no sandals) and shoes that you can slide on wood floor and be comfortable dancing on. We recommend to invest in Salsa Dance Shoes as you get more into dancing and our classes. They are designed for dancing and to be comfy and on your feet for long periods of time.
