Frequently Asked Questions

Can I really learn how to dance?

In short, yes you really can learn how to dance.

We always say, “If you can walk, we can teach you how to dance.”

Dancing is a skill that can be learned. We simplify it into its main components: body coordination, rhythm and musicality, and connection (in partner dances). Each component is taught at your level. If you are just starting out, you start at level 1 and make your way through the curriculum as you build your skills.


How do I get started?

Call or email us to let us know what your dance goals are and we’ll get you scheduled for your first lesson.


How long will it take me to Get Good?

The length of time it takes to learn how to dance depends on your experience and dedication.


Dancing is a combination of body coordination, moving to the rhythm of the music genre of choice, and connecting with your dance partner. When it comes to coordination, if you have played a sport or danced another type of genre, then you’re one step ahead. When it comes to rhythm, if you have learned how to play an instrument, you will have an easier time finding the rhythm. But to ease your mind, some people who have never played sports or an instrument have become professional dancers. 


The absolute quickest way to learn how to dance is a combination of lessons and practice. Take private lessons with an instructor that will help you formulate goals and provide a plan to meet those goals. Practice daily by going to group classes and go out social dancing.


What should I wear?

You want to be able to move freely and without restriction from your clothing. Some students wear jeans and a t-shirt, others wear gym clothes, and some come to class straight from work and wear business casual attire. 

The right shoes are important. You want to wear shoes that have ankle support and a smooth sole. Avoid sandals, running sneakers, or shoes that have rubber soles that will stick to the dance floor. A dance shoe will always offer you the best experience but this expense is not a necessity at first. 

For ladies learning Latin dance, if you are not comfortable in heels, then we recommend that you don’t wear them at first. You can start with a flat shoe or a low heel and work your way to a higher heel.


Where can I find music so I can practice?

Free with us. We will make music accessible to you via dropbox or by simply bringing a thumb drive to class, we will download music into it so that  you to practice.

However, if you wish to purchase some of your own, e-mail us and we will send you a detail list of songs and artist to follow.
