Do I need a partner?
Not at all! We teach singles and couples, beginner to advanced, so you do not need to bring a partner to ballroom dancing classes.
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing that makes it easy to move. We have students dressed in a range of clothes, from work attire to casual. We do recommend wearing shoes that have leather-soled bottoms that allow you to move. Shoes with rubber soles, on the other hand, will stick to the floor and inhibit movement. For gentlemen, dress shoes are ideal in the beginning. For ladies, whether its heels or flats, wear a shoe that securely fits your foot! For brides to be, bring your wedding shoes for practice.
How do I get started?
The next step is to give us a call or stop by and visit us to schedule your first lesson. Stepping outside your comfort zone can sometimes be hard and we understand that. We go out of our way to make you feel comfortable and look forward to hearing from you.

How often should I come for lessons?
The more you come, especially in the beginning, the better the results. We highly recommend that you schedule your lessons close together. It’s like starting a workout regimen—the more often you do it, the faster the results! We will always give our recommendation, but the choice is always up to you.
What is a private lesson?
A private lesson consists of one student or a couple working with one dance instructor. Private lessons are the best way to improve your dance skills and are tailored to your personal needs. A private lesson runs 45 minutes.
How do group classes work?
We offer a variety of group classes at different levels to complement your private lessons. They usually consist of 10-20 people and add a social element to your learning experience. You will find that group classes are fun, helpful and important to your progress.
What are the practice parties like?
Practice parties provide a real-life social experience in a safe learning environment. All of the instructors will be there to ensure your success in making dancing a lifetime skill. They are a great way to meet new people and get comfortable with skills necessary to becoming a comfortable social dancer.
