  • Regular attendance is encouraged.  If you must miss a class, please contact Nisaa about make-up opportunities.

  • Wear comfortable exercise attire that is somewhat form-fitting (form-fitting attire makes it possible for Nisaa to see and correct your posture and movements).  Please do not wear bulky clothes or skirts.  Please avoid wearing strong perfumes/colognes, and remember to wear antiperspirant/deodorant.
  • You may choose to dance barefoot, or you may wish to wear dance slippers (ask Nisaa for recommendations on dance slippers).  Please do not wear street shoes such as tennis shoes.  Level 1 students are not required to wear dance slippers.  However, Level 2 and 3 students are strongly encouraged to do so.
