We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely, such as activewear or comfortable dancewear. Avoid wearing clothing that is too loose or baggy as this can interfere with your movement.
You don’t need to buy special shoes for Hip Hop classes, but sneakers with good support and a non-slip sole are recommended. This will help protect your feet and prevent injury during the fast-paced movements of hip hop.
