Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions!

Do I need a partner?

No.  Singles and couples are always welcomed.  We do require you to pre-register so that the ratio of leaders to followers is always close to 50/50.  We can't always guarantee a fully balanced class, but we do our best.  Our instructors are there to partner extra leaders or followers.

 What should I wear?

For class or dancing, nice casual clothing is appropriate. In consideration of your partners, men should not wear tank tops or sleeveless shirts, and ladies should avoid backless dresses.  You will need shoes that stay on your feet, and which will pivot on the dance floor.  With experience, you will be able to choose shoes that are neither too sticky or slick.  Beach style sandals are inappropriate.  Cowboy boots and other heavy or large shoes are discouraged, since they limit your movement.

Be sure to shower, wear deodorant, and brush your teeth before will be in close contact with others!

 How long will it take me to learn to dance?

Dancing is simple and fun and well worth whatever time and energy you have to put into it!  Learning to dance is like learning a new language.  You can choose to learn a few catch phrases, or really master the language!

The best place to start is in one of our beginner level classes, or book a free 25 minute consultation to talk to an instructor about your goals!

 Which class(es) should I take?

Beginners and those new to dance should take any of our beginner level classes.  Instructors are available to talk about the best way to reach your goals... call and book a free 25 minute consultation.

Intermediate classes are designed for those that know the basics and want to learn more advanced patterns, technique and footwork variations.
