Q: “What’s the difference between group classes and private lessons?”
A: “Private lessons are where you work one-on-one with an instructor. They can be scheduled at any time of the week that works with yours and your instructor’s schedules. Group classes are classes that we and our independent contractors offer on a weekly basis. You learn in a group setting from an instructor in a 55 minute long class. Group classes are normally 4-week long sessions and begin the first week of each month unless otherwise stated by our schedule.”

Q: “How much are group classes?”
A: “For a 4-week session, group classes are $48 per person or $15 per class. Signing up at the beginning of the month saves you $12. These prices apply to any class listed as Dance For 2 classes on the calendar. Please contact our independent contractors for pricing on their classes. Their contact info is listed on the back page of the calendar.”
Q: “Do I have to start a class at the beginning of the session?”
A: “We recommend starting a class at the beginning of the session, but it is not required. It also depends on how much dance experience you have. If you are a fairly new beginner, we recommend starting at the beginning of the session.
Q: “What dance should I start learning if I’ve never danced before?”
A: “If you aren’t sure what style of dance you are interested in, we recommend trying our FUNdamentals class on Wednesday nights at first. Each month, this $7 class focuses on either Ballroom, Latin or Club style dances. Within each style of dance, a different dance is covered each week. For Ballroom, this includes the Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz. For Latin, this includes the Cha-Cha, Salsa, Rumba and either Merengue or Bachata. For Club, this includes the Jitterbug, West Coast Swing, Nightclub 2-step and the Hustle. This way, you get an idea of what each dance is like and which one you are most interested in trying.Good styles of dance to begin with include Jitterbug, Foxtrot, Waltz, Rumba and Merengue. Slightly more challenging dances include Salsa, East Coast Swing, Bachata, Viennese Waltz, West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, and Balboa.”
Q: “What should I wear to a group class?”
A: “The main thing is to be comfortable! We recommend a shoe with a leather sole so you don’t stick to the floor. Ladies, we recommend a low heel but it isn’t necessary. Just be sure that you feel confident and comfortable in your outfit. We want you to have fun learning to dance, not worrying over your clothes.
Q: “Can I come use the studio just to practice on my own?”
A: “Yes, we allow anyone to practice for $10 a day per couple during the hours of 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. To see how you can save money and not pay the daily practice fee, click here.”
