Frequently Asked Questions!
Do I need special shoes?
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. Be sure to shower, wear deodorant, and brush your teeth before dancing…you will be in close contact with others!
You will need shoes that stay on your feet, and move easily on the dance floor, a leather sole works best. Beach style sandals, gym shoes and heavy or large boots don’t work well.
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!
How does a private lesson work?
Before anything else, we do a FREE 25 minute consult during which a teacher will sit down with you to understand your goals, and help determine the best path for you to take, private lessons, group classes or a combination… then we get down to the business of reaching your goals! You are always the boss and your teacher is there to help you!
How much does it cost?
Since everyone comes into the studio looking for something specific to them, we don’t know in advance how much it will cost to reach each unique goal…. that’s why we offer a free consultation with one of our instructors. We take the time to listen to what you want, and work with you to create a plan that works for you. Consultations are no pressure, no obligation opportunities to let us know about you and hear a plan of action. Private lesson prices include one or two people.
Which class(es) should I take?
