What to Bring to Class
Just bring 1) a water bottle, 2) comfortable workout clothes (Zumba cargo pants dry quickly and leave you without that sweaty feeling) or even a swirly skirt over a pair of leggings to spice up your dance. I like tennis skirts- the less fabric touching your skin, the less sweaty you'll feel. 3) a towel, headband or handkerchief- anything to keep the sweat out of your eyes. 4) cross trainer shoes (the less tread the better.) Arch support, cushioning, flexible soles and ventilation are important too. A pivot point on the bottom will help you turn and twist more freely. Currently, I wear Zumba brand shoes or Asics Gel.Noosafast or Asics gel-fit Sana cross training. 5) Dancesocks or shoe gliders on Tuesdays (The floors are washed on Tuesday mornings and get a little sticky.)
. The Aasics gel-fit Sana are awesome and feel like slippers yet have support. They are so comfortable and allow for a flexible foot. They come in a variety of colors. See the link below! I have also worn and liked Nike Musique (snug for narrow feet) or Ryka Transitions or Influence (roomier, great ventilation) . and Ryka Studio D are great too. Note that I wear a size 8 in all Nikes and Zumba brand, but an 8.5 in Asics and Ryka. Men can wear basketball shoes such as . To keep your shoes from sticking on our wood floors and to protect your knees during twists, it's also great to have Shoe gliders, such as Dancesocks.
