What to bring to class

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Tap shoes are required. These may be purchased at Bloch (117 York Street, Sydney NSW 2000) or online. If purchasing online, measure your foot, as people commonly take a size larger in tap shoes than in dress shoes. If you do not have tap shoes yet, please wear leather-soled shoes to the first lesson.

Please arrive in time for the start of each class, or the tutor may refuse to admit you into the session. Most active classes start with an OH&S briefing and/or warm-up. Missing this may create a hazard to you and could exclude you from participation in the session.
