1. What do I wear to a dance lesson?
3 Guidelines: Casual, comfortable, and clean.
- No need to get dressed up (unless you wish to).
- You want to be able to move easily in what you wear.
- Cleanliness is important when dancing with a partner.
2. What do I bring?
Bring whatever makes you feel comfortable.
Some students bring a towel in the summer, or a change of shoes.
I provide water for everyone.
3. Do I need a partner?
No. You’ll dance with me during private lessons, or other students during classes.
4. What dance do I start with?
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.
5. How long does it take to learn to dance when taking only privates?

In this case, 10 lessons should do it.
However, if you want to dance well…
