When people first start taking dance clsses i recomend wearing shoes that you might go out in. Simple! If you wear flats during dance class, then out out in high wedges, you are going to find it difficult to dance the moves you learned in class. You don’t necessarly have to run out and get a pair of dance shoes, but at least a shoe what you would go dancing in! I do own normal shoes that I can dance in, but finding those shoes are few and far between.
