Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Wear?
We stress comfort for our newcomers. The type of clothing we recommend is anything that is comfortable for movement. Your outfit of choice should allow you to move your arms and legs freely.
In terms of shoes, you'll want to wear comfortable shoes that will securely stay on your foot from heel to toe. You also want your shoes to have a flexible sole that allows for movement. If you are seriously committed to taking continuous lessons in the future, you should consider buying shoes specifically made for ballroom dancing. Ask our staff about the “Very Fine” catalog that features hundreds of different styles of great practice shoes for women and men.
Do I Need to Make a Reservation?
For group classes you do not need to make a reservation. You can simply show up for your class of choice. Please bring a copy of your voucher number if you are redeeming a special offer. If this is your first class, we recommend arriving about 10 – 15 minutes early so that we have plenty of time to get you checked in, give you the punch card that you will bring with you to every class, and give you a brief tour of the studio. See our calendar for our comprehensive range of classes.
Do I Need to Have a Partner?
Nope! Singles, couples, groups, and friends are all welcome. Our classes are taught in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Every dancer will get a chance to dance with a different person in the class. Even if you come with a partner, we encourage you to dance with various other partners, as it will help you build confidence in social dancing, and will help you feel confident leading and following different partners (which could happen at future weddings or parties).
