If you are taking ballroom dancing classes as a way of connecting with your spouse, meeting new people or preparing for a wedding or big event, you're probably excited about getting ready. However, you might not be sure of how to properly prepare yourself when you're getting ready for your lessons. Follow these tips when getting dressed and ready, and you should be prepared for anything that your lessons throw at you.

Wear Comfortable Clothing

Even though you might associate ballroom dancing with fancy outfits, you probably won't want to dress that way for your lessons. Instead, make sure that you wear something nice and comfortable. You'll be moving around a lot, and you don't want your clothing to restrict your movement or make you miserable when you should be having fun.

Wear Flat Shoes

Skip the heels, ladies. Instead, wear comfortable, flat shoes. You don't want to worry about stumbling on your own two feet or being uncomfortable. Save the fancy shoes for later on, when you are showing off your dance moves at a social event.

Dress in Layers

You might get hot while you're working up a sweat and dancing, or you might get chilly throughout the night. Dressing in comfortable layers can allow you to quickly and easily transition to the proper outfit so that you can stay nice and comfortable.

Get Your Hair Out of Your Face

If you have long hair, you should consider tying it up in a ponytail or bun and getting it out of your face. Otherwise, it could get on your nerves while you're dancing or could get in your partner's face.

Smell Good, But Not Too Good

You will probably be dancing close with your partner, so you'll feel more confident if you are freshly showered and wearing deodorant. Skip the strong perfume or cologne, however, since you might get paired with a dancing partner who is sensitive to it.
