I Really want to start, but I’ m feeling shy about coming on my own

What happens if I miss a week or two?

We always go over what we have done and make sure everyone is up to date and comfortable before we move on.


Am I too old?

I am a teenager, can I attend the adult classes?

Yes. You will feel very comfortable in all our classes. Many families attend as a fun social event.

What clothes should I wear and what should I wear on my feet?


Most importantly comfy shoes. A small heel for ladies can help. Don’t wear flip flops or very loose shoes as these may come off. Smart casual clothes which give you freedom of movement.

If you continue to dance you may wish to buy dance shoes for the comfort and support they offer. There are many internet sites and we can advise you on these.


Do I need to bring anything?


Only yourself that is all we need!


I’ m not sure what style I want to learn?


All styles (Ballroom and Latin American) are taught in our classes so you will learn them all.
