Dress Code For Shuffle Dance Class
Dress comfy or cute, whichever you prefer, but know that we will be breaking a sweat. Anything from sweatpants, to spandex, to jeans is okay as long as you’re comfortable.
Shoes: Any sneakers are fine, however street shoes or sneakers are not allowed on the dance floor.
You’re also welcome to shuffle in socks. Socks allow you to shuffle a lot easier because the lack of grip, it’s a good idea for beginners.

Meet Pearla, Your Shuffle Dance Class Teacher
“I was raised in a tiny town called Athens, in Maine. I moved to Utah for two years to study at SUU, then finished my bachelors degree in Maine at UMO. I studied psychology, and adored it, but soon after school discovered my new passion for dancing, and decided to pursue that. While it’s tough to find a career in dancing when you’re late in the game (I started dancing in my late twenties), I knew that I wanted to teach dance in some form.
I’m also currently a fine dining server at Daniel’s Broiler, and have been there over four years. I’m grateful for this job because it allows me to be financially stable while only working 3-4 days a week, which means more free time to dance.
If I’m not working, I’m almost always practicing dance—either hip hop, shuffling, or sensual dance/heels. If I’m not dancing, I’m going for a walk, riding my scooter, or hanging out with friends.
I also love to travel, or explore new neighborhoods. My most recent favorite place I’ve been has been Switzerland!”
