Dance clothes (what to wear for contemporary dance)

I've not entered a class but am teaching my self, with help from family members who are dancers, how to dance contemporary dance. I'm not sure if I can just dance barefoot in a t-shirt and leggings or if I'd be better of getting a cheap leotard and dance paws. What do you think?

Hi there!

You should wear what's more comfortable for you. That's the way contemporary dancers decide how to dress for training, and even for the stage too.

Warm regards,
