How do I get started?
Getting started is easy! The first step is to schedule an introductory lesson course with one of our instructors. During your first lesson, your instructor will determine your current level and recommend an appropriate course for you to continue with. We teach a variety of levels from very basic to competitive level. No experience or partner is needed and there are no age limits.
Can I really learn to dance?
Yes. Dancing is as easy as walking once you are taught how. We teach simple, basic elements, from which the steps are derived. Your instructors have successfully trained hundreds if not thousands of people how to become confident social dancers. There is no age limit. Our oldest students are over 80. The youngest are usually in their early teens.
How long will it take?
The length of your course will depend on how many dances you want to learn and how proficient you wish to become in each dance. However, you will be able to dance after your very first lesson. We also offer a variety of different programs, including our fast track program that will help accelerate the learning process.
How much do lessons cost?
Tuition varies, depending on a number of factors e.g., how good you want to be, what dances you want to learn, and how often you decide to take lessons. After your introductory course, your instructor will recommend a program and will be able to answer any questions so that you’ll have the knowledge to make an informed choice on which package is right for you.
Does the fee have to be paid in advance?
Tuition is generally paid in advance, especially for introductory and discovery programs. However, financing and other arrangements are also available. Since these are determined on a case by case basis, please ask in person, and we will be glad to give you all the details.
Will I learn the latest steps?
Yes! You will learn all the latest steps in every dance you choose!
After I learn to dance, will I still have to return to learn the newest steps?
After getting a good foundation, you will be able to analyze the new steps and pick them up yourself without difficulty. However, many students return or continue because they enjoy their lessons and the dancing friends they’ve acquired. Learning to dance, even at an advanced or competitive level, it’s always great to take lessons to keep up to date on new styles and techniques.
Will I have a good teacher?
Absolutely! All instructors must complete an arduous training regimen, making them very competent. Your teachers will be selected to best suit your particular needs and style of learning.
What benefits will I get from dancing?
Dancing is our first line of social activity. Good dancing is a lifetime investment in fun, poise, confidence, improved personality, and new friends. Beyond these, dancing is a superb physical conditioner — providing fun without working at it. It opens up a wonderful new world of togetherness and a thriving year-round social calendar! The benefits are virtually limitless!
