What type of clothing should I bring?

Dance class: 

Bring comfortable clothes that you can move easily in. Exercise or yoga pants are good and a t-shirt or tank top.  Bring a skirt if you can, but it is not required. I know some people love the dressing up part, so feel free to be as fancy or un-fancy as you feel.  Whatever makes you feel good that allows you to move your arms up easily.  Please bring a pair of flamenco or hard-soled shoes as well.

Out of class: 

You’re welcome to wear whatever you feel comfortable in for the winery visits and outside of class. Average temps in April are daytime high 66º nighttime low 41º. Definitely bring a swimsuit for the pool.
