Social Dancers FAQs
Can I learn to dance?
Yes, everyone can learn to dance! Our motto is, “If you can walk, you can dance.” You will learn how fun and easy dancing really is with our professional instructors!
Do I need a partner?
No. Our Staff can teach you how to dance with or without a partner.
How long will it take to be a good dancer?
Although you will be dancing on your very first lesson, there are many factors that determine how long it will take to be good: your natural ability; frequency and consistency of lessons; and how much you practice. Learning to dance is easy, but to be able to dance smoothly and comfortably takes a little more time.
What do I wear for my lessons?
We recommend you dress comfortably and avoid close-fitting clothing. As for footwear, avoid shoes that may slip off, as well as sneakers–they tend to stick to the floor.
Can I bring friends?
Absolutely! Also, once you become a student, you can bring guests and earn free lessons!
What are your hours?
We are open 7 days a week from 10am-9pm. Private lessons are scheduled at your convenience within that time frame. Group classes are scheduled on weekday evenings and weekend mornings and afternoons.
How much do lessons cost?
You can get started dancing for as little as $40. As with any hobby or sport, there are many different levels of participation. Dancing can be relatively inexpensive. Of course, more serious dancers could invest as much as they choose.
How do people usually learn to dance?
Most people take private instruction and attend group classes. Private lessons are the best way to learn because ballroom dancing involves working with a partner. It is not strictly imitative; you can’t just copy someone. How to dance with another person and create a commanding, consistent lead or a responsive, graceful follow requires personal instruction. Group classes are great for learning figures, repetition, and dancing with different people, but there is no substitute for personal instruction.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel or reschedule a private lesson, we ask for at least 24 hours notice to avoid being charged for the lesson.
