|Q. Do I need a partner?
A. No! Our classes are structured so that we rotate partners and everyone gets a chance to dance. We do encourage rotating in our classes. Dancing with different people allows you to become a better leader, follower, and dancer in general.
Q. What do I wear to class?
A. There is no specific dress code for our classes. We do suggest, however, that you wear something cool and comfortable. This is particularly important when it comes to shoes. It is important that you wear shoes with smooth soles versus rubber soles. For ladies, make sure you wear shoes that are flexible and provide good ankle support; flip-flops are difficult to dance in.
Q. I'm ready to take classes, how do I get started?
A. If you already know which class to take, you are ready to register online. If not, go to our CLASSES menu above to choose a class on the day of the week, location, time and dance level of your choice. Note whether the class is a series class or a drop-in class. If it is a series class, check to see the date of when the new series begins. After you choose a class, you are ready to register online. Registration can be done in person at any of our class locations on the first day of class or you can register on-line by filling out the Registration Form, no later than the night before the day of the class.
