Dancing is about movement and enjoyment. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that allows you to be flexible and relaxed. We recommend you wear clothing that is lightweight, will not inhibit movement and, most of all, comfortable.

Dance shoes are recommended but not required. For ladies we recommend a shoe with a heel. No flip-flops, sandals, backless shoes or tennis shoes. Take time to make sure your pants, skort or skirt allow you to move freely with large steps.  Gentlemen, we recommend wearing a lightweight dress shoe with a soft sole. No tennis shoes, as the rubber soles will restrict movement. No hard plastic soled shoes, as they will be slick on the dance floor.
We highly recommend that you schedule your lessons close together, especially in the beginning. The less time between lessons means the less you will forget, the less you will need to review, and the more quickly you will learn and reach a confident level in your dancing.
Our dance lesson programs are uniquely tailored  to fit each student’s specific interests – from social to competitive dancing. Therefore, prices vary based on your needs and goals.
That’s ok!  It’s perfectly natural to feel shy and/or nervous. Even the best professionals were nervous their first time dancing. We are here to help you learn to dance. Your instructor is dedicated to help you meet your goals and needs. Our program is designed to get you dancing and dancing more quickly. Walk in and waltz out!
