What Do I Wear?

You can wear any type of fitness clothes: yoga pants, sweat pants, shorts, tank tops, t-shirts – just make sure you will be comfortable. A good supportive bra is important too.

The right footwear is essential for Zumba®.  Shoes should have side-to-side motion stability, cushioning, and minimal tread. Minimal tread allows you to change direction and pivot without stressing your knees, ankles or hips.  The best shoes for Zumba®  are dance sport shoes or court shoes that you only use indoors.  Running shoes/cross trainers are not a great choice because they tend to have deep treads and little lateral support (we run forward, not sideways).  For your safety, please do not do a class in bare or stocking feet.

Studio VZF sells lightweight ZumbaWear® shoes in all sizes and many colours that are specifically made for Zumba®.  Ask your instructor for information.
