Live. Love. Dance.
Here is a few suggestions regarding the dress code:
- Semi-formal dress code applies to special events at most studios and dance halls. Gentlemen: dress slacks with dress shirt and tie, and optional jacket; vest or sweater with or without a tie showing (depends on the level of formality), turtlenecks are possible on less formal occasions. Ladies in evening dress or dinner dress, but pants and dressy tops/blouses are also acceptable use your imagination, but always consider your age.
- Informal dress code applies to workshops and dance lessons. Dress comfortably but avoid shorts and tank tops.
- Latin venues specialize in Salsa, Cha-Cha, Bachata, Merengue, etc. Gentlemen: button-up shirts, solid T-shirt or turtleneck, dress slacks. Dark themes are more common, but colorful outfits are also acceptable. Ladies often wear sexy outfits such as skirts, tops and dresses with low necklines. However, you should always feel comfortable and it is fine to stay away from anything too revealing, and wear pants.
- Just another useful tip: novice dancers seem to always be more dressed up than experienced dancers so do not go overboard with metallic and sparkly fabrics! Also, it is common for people regularly frequenting a given night club to observe their own fashion trends.
