Can I learn for a special event?
Yes! Dance instruction is available for a variety of events such as weddings (bridal party or attendees), cruises, high school reunions, New Year's parties, or new relationships.We are happy to customize your dance instruction to meet your needs.
Do I need any prior dance training to start?
No. Most of our students have never taken dance instruction of any kind.
What if I have two left feet?
"Two left feet" is what people say when they feel awkward or clumsy on the dance floor. Learning to dance is the solution for this condition. We have been quite successful with people who think they can't learn to dance.
What if I have no coordination, no rhythm, no talent, etc?
We can teach you rhythm and coordination.We can't give you more talent, but we can show you how to maximize what you've got -- and have fun with it.
What should I wear?
Nothing fancy -- we're pretty casual. Guys: Anything from "Docker" type pants to a casual shirt to dress pants and a Polo. Ladies: Nice Pants, dresses, and skirts are all fine -- the number one priority is to feel comfortable and move easily!
Do I need special shoes?
Not necessarily. For Beginners, something with a slick sole -- like leather -- works the best and avoids muscle strain. You don't necessarily need to wear dress shoes, but we definitely don't recommend sneakers or other rubber-soled shoes -- they create too much friction on the dance floor. Please bring shoes that you don't wear outside.
Ladies, unless you're amazingly comfortable on stilts, we suggest lower heels while you're new. Heels 2" or 2.5" are plenty high enough. Flats or low heels, if you're comfortable in them, are even better. And please choose a supportive heel -- today's trendy thick heels usually provide better support than toothpick-thin stillettos. And please beware: avoid the rubberized coating many of today's manufacturers are putting on ladies' shoes -- they grip the floor and don't move!
Like with most activities that turn into hobbies, serious dancers invest in Ballroom or Latin dance shoes, but you might want to see how you like it before taking that step.
