Do I need a partner? Not at all. We teach both singles and couples. If you don’t come
with a partner your instructor will be your partner. At least half of our students
take lessons without a partner.
What should I wear? Comfortable clothing that allows
you to move your arms and legs easily is best. For footwear, a leather-soled shoe
will allow you to slide your feet on the dance floor. Sneakers and rubber-soled shoes
tend to stick and stop your movement.
What dances will I learn when I begin? That’s up to you. We recommend that beginners
start with swing, cha cha, rumba, foxtrot, waltz, and tango. Learning these dances
gives you an excellent foundation for all the other dances. However, if you don’t
want some of these basic dances, we will teach you only what you want to learn.
What if I have never danced before? How difficult will I find it to learn? Learning
will not be difficult. We are experienced at teaching everyone from those with no
dance background at all, to those who have had extensive previous training.
What is a practice party? A practice party is a party for our students held every
other Friday evening for the purpose of trying out the new steps being learned on
the lessons. It’s an opportunity to meet other students and work on steps without
the pressure of trying out new material for the first time in a public place. At
our parties we dim the lights, serve refreshments, and have a great time. Students
have the opportunity to dance socially with their instructors and with other students.
What do the lessons cost? That depends on how many lessons you decide to take. Everyone’s
program is worked out separately. We suggest you begin with our Special Introductory
