The best way to answer all your dance questions is a complementary lesson.
Many of the commonly asked questions are addressed here.
How many lessons do I need?
It depends upon the level of skills you want to attain and how fast you learn. You need a minimum of 5 lessons to master the basics for a single dance, or 3 interrelated dances.
What dances do I need to learn?
The more dances the better, but start out with Foxtrot, Waltz, Swing, Rumba for social ballroom dancing; Swing and Nightclub for parties and other night spots. These are common and interrelated, so it is easy to learn them all at once.
Is it best to learn one dance well, rather than several dances?
Learning only one dance does not provide the best dance training. A variety of dances will develop good dance skills and accelerate your progress.
Should I start out with group lessons first and then take private lessons later on?
Group classes are good exposure to dance steps and patterns, but dancing with other beginners is limiting. The very beginning of your training is the most important and becomes the foundation which you draw upon. Students tend to develop bad habits without individual correction. If private training is started later, there is much more work and time involved to correct bad habits and become a good dancer. It is best to do both, so you can meet new people and go out to practice your steps at different clubs and functions.
What if I have two left feet and no rhythm?
Rhythm can be learned by listening and practicing. Most people are not “natural” and need training in this area.
Do I need a partner?
No. The majority of dancers are single. Even most couples dance with everyone to be social and practice leading and following skills. All classes have rotation so everyone is able to dance. Private training is most beneficial when dancing with the instructor.
