We Asked A Professional Dancer How To Dress To Get The Most Out Of Zoom Class

    540  Views

    As if the transition to literally everything going online wasn't hard enough, making time (and space without knocking over a vase) for Zoom classes can be a bit hard. But if there's one thing I know for sure, it's that dancing is fun and liberating -- just ask Grey's Anatomy fans during their 30-second dance parties. As much as I'd like to pretend I'm awesome dancer, I'm (sadly) not, so I asked an expert, Gunika Sanan, a professional dancer at The Danceworx who's been in the biz for 11 years on how to dress your best to have a successful online class. 

    PS: Gunika teaches jazz and heels choreographies that you can register for (and she's racked up 3.6M+ views on her Instagram so you know she's the real deal).

    One thing you'll definitely need for class is a pair of lowers that won't restrict your movement. These cotton shorts are casual, cool and comfy and the tie-dye print is SO in at the moment.

    Oversized tees have been our go-to for lounging at home but they also work equally well for dance class! The loungewear vibe easily turns into the cool girl vibe, especially paired with some bike shorts and your hair up in a bun. Get at least a size or two bigger than your usual for the perfect anti-fit.

    Trendy Sports Bra

    There will come a moment during your dance class when you're sweaty and feel like dancing in your shorts and sports bra. But for that, it's much easier when your sports bra isn't basic. I mean, other than the support it provides, a sports bra should be cute, too, right? 

    Living in activewear at this point? I got you.

    When you're moving around, you need a pair of earrings that are lightweight and won't snag and end up hurting you. While you could just opt to not wear earrings but really, why would you do that? Instead, put on these hoops that are classic, gold-plated and work well in and outside of dance class. 

    Tie & Dye Crop Top

    Another tie & dye pick made it into this list and I'm not surprised or mad about it. A crop top is probably the most reached for item in a dancer's closet when they're getting dressed for class. This one's the perfect length for keeping you covered while still letting your skin breathe.

    In case you can't get enough of this trend either, I've got some more tie & dye picks for you.

    When sweatpants met style, we got joggers. They're comfortable, look super cool and allow a lot of movement whether you're about to go into a hip-hop class or contemporary routine. I also love that you could wear them just to lounge around in or if even style them up like in Instagram influencer with a blazer.

    Cute Printed Socks

    Socks make it easier for you to glide and slide during class so while they've definitely got a functional reason to be worn, wearing boring socks is just wrong. These watermelon socks are quirky, adorable and if your dance class is doing a routine on Watermelon Sugar, you'll obviously be best dressed.

    Check out some more quirky socks here.
