Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I need a partner?
No partner necessary.
What do I wear?
Dress comfortably. We recommend against wearing rubber soled shoes (i.e. sneakers) as they stick to the floor, and make it challenging to turn.
How do I get started?
Call, email, text, or come by and we will get you started.
What type of dances do you teach?
We can instruct in all styles of dance, but we specialize in latin social dances specifically Salsa, Bachata, ChaCha, and Latin Hustle. We also offer group classes in Fundamentals of dance, Styling, Salsa shines, Afro Cuban, Zumba, and Yoga for dancers.
Do you do wedding choreography?
Do I need to make an appointment to attend a group class?

All ages are welcome. The majority of students in our group classes are between 20 and 65.
But I have "two left feet," what if I can't keep up?
The majority of our students find our class pace just right. However, everyone learns at a different pace. We recommend recording the moves and practicing at home.
