Frequently Asked Questions:

What should I wear?

Proper dance shoes are an essential tool to help you reach your goals . However, for your first few lessons, any comfortable shoes that offer support on the heel and on top of the foot should work fine.  Ideal clothing allows freedom of movement.

How long will it take to learn?

The ‘Rule of 1000’ applies: conventional wisdom says it takes 1,000 reps to create muscle memory.  The Dance Express Program is designed to give you ample opportunity to create the muscle memory you need to dance freely, without having to think about the steps.  That being said, Learning to dance is an endless journey and the sky is the limit.  Your pace is set by your rate of attendance and attention to detail through private lessons, etc.

Do I need a partner?

No. In the group classes, we switch partners often.

What if I only want to focus one dance?

Private lessons are tailored for specific goals.  However, it is recommended that you build a strong base of knowledge of several dances before honing in on one.  Each dance emphasizes different qualities of movement that help you become a stronger dancer over-all.  Initial narrow focus can be limiting, whereas a broad focus allows for exponential growth:  improvement in any dance enhances your dancing over all.
