FAQ's

Why should I take ballroom dance lessons?

Ballroom dancing will change your life.  You will build better confidence, posture, and better body awareness.  We only get one body, so why not take care of it the best that you can?  Learning is important no matter what stage of life you are in, and learning the language of dance is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself.  You will be able to take it with you everywhere you go, and use it as a means of communication anywhere in the world!  Dance is the international language, and even when words fail us, dance never will.  You will be able to use this language in any country in Europe, and South America, or any state in the U.S!

Why are private lessons better than group lessons?

Private lessons, especially for beginners, offer a completely personalized experience unmatched by group classes.  We tailor every lesson towards you, with your best interests in mind.  You will see your own improvement from week to week, and really enjoy the process.  The problem with group lessons, especially when you are a beginner, will be that they are usually not geared toward your level.  When teachers design their group classes, they have to teach for the majority of the group, meaning usually to an intermediate level.  If you have no prior experience this will be very confusing, and result in poor habits and technique and will be a discouraging class for you.

Is it ok that I come alone to my lessons?

We enjoy teaching couples and single dancers alike!  We will be your instructor and partner during your lessons.  All you need to bring to your lesson is a positive attitude!

Do you offer personalized wedding choreography?
