Dance has a social character, in order to progress and be comfortable during the parties, it is better to change partners so as not to get used to a particular style or the characteristics of a single person. As we apply this principle, you won't be alone.

Preferably flat ballerina style shoes for ladies. For men, sneakers or other comfortable shoes that allow movement, knowing that for both it is also possible to be barefoot depending on the floor. The tours that are performed by the partners are marketed and not slipped.
