The style of this class will mainly be Cuban-Vaganova based with Balanchine influences. No previous training necessary! Soft ballet slippers are recommended, but socks will work as well. Dress comfortably in clothing you can move your whole body in. A leotard and tights are standard ballet class attire, but leggings and a shirt work just as well.
