What do I wear?

Shoes that will stay on your feet is a good idea. No flip-flops, sandals, etc… Other than that wear whatever is comfortable in the beginning. When you advance in your dancing then it will become more important to wear more appropriate, dance friendly shoes. Your teacher will let you know when the time comes, but for now keep it casual and have fun.

Do I need a partner?

Absolutely not. As a matter of fact, one on one attention will always work quicker for you than one on two attention. Just because he/she isn’t ready to learn is no reason to let that stop you from doing something you really want to do. You will be able to learn how to become a terrific dancer on your private lessons and won’t miss out on dancing with others by attending our group dance classes.

How long are the lessons?

Your introductory lesson will be 30 minutes long. After that all of your lessons will be 45 minutes long.

What dance(s) should I learn?

Well that’s going to be the fun part. We can spend a little time exploring each of the dances. This will give you an opportunity to discover which ones are your favorites. Or, if you already know the genre of music you would like to dance to, your instructor can help you find the dances that fit best.

What styles of dance do you teach?

We teach Ballroom dancing which is anything done with a partner. From Foxtrot and Swing to Salsa and Cha Cha. Check out our dance pages for a brief description on each.

Dances We Teach

How long does it take to learn how to dance?

Well everyone is different and it depends on how good you want to be and how much time you spend learning. That being said, at the end of your first lesson you will know a 100% more dance moves than you knew before the lesson. And that will be 100% more dance moves than most other people.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please allow 12 hours notice when cancelling your private lesson for any reason.
