Q: What should I wear to my first class?
A: Clothing should be loose and comfortable. Skirts and pants should be loose enough to allow movement. Shoes should have at least a 1.5″ heel.
Q: Do I need to get flamenco shoes?
A: Not at first. Character shoes work well, are cheaper and can be found in most dance stores. Heels should be 1.5″ high, minimum. 2″to 3″ heels typically work better.
Q: Can I drop in on classes?
A: No. steps and techniques are taught sequentially in each class. A drop-in student will miss too much material. However, if a student would like to watch a class to see if he or she is interested in joining the class, arrangements can be made by contacting Maria Morca.
