I ask because I ran across a really nice guy who is just starting ballroom dance lessons.  He was so, so excited after his first lesson that he went shopping -- for a brandnew pair of dress pants.  He, however, elected to keep taking dance lessons in his street shoes.

He could see that the others in class dressed fairly nicely - dress casual.  So he decided he needed pants.  He  couldn't see anything wrong with his shoes,though. *shrug*

That reminds me of when I first started dancing.  The first thing I bought was new shoes -- character shoes, that is.  It took me months to realize the folly of my ways, and created some posture problems that took a while to fix. *sigh*

Question: If you were advising a brand new dancer, what equipment would you say is essential? 
(Bear in mind that  most brand newbies are not dance crazy yet, so price probably still is an issue.)

Dona nobis pacem.
