Guidelines: Casual, comfortable, and ease of movement:
- No need to get dressed up (unless you want to).
- You want to be able to move easily in what you wear.
- If possible, wear shoes that can spin on the floor.
Bring whatever makes you feel comfortable.
Some students bring a towel in the summer, or a change of shoes.
This varies, depending on the class.
In most classes, we switch partners to improve leading and following.
You’ll dance with me during private lessons or with your partner.
We can discuss this to see what is best.
Of course, you should start with a beginner class, if you have never danced before.
For students who have taken lessons, please see the prerequisites for higher level classes.
Wedding couples choose whatever dance they enjoy.
This depends on what your goal is, how much you practice and how fast you learn.
Some people just want a few steps to a few dances so they can join in at social events.
I do not teach partner dancing to children.
At 16, a teenager can attend classes accompanied by an adult.
