Learning to Dance - FAQ

Nope 🙂 Singles, as well as couples, are welcome and encouraged to join our group classes. We rotate partners throughout class so you’ll have so you’ll have ample opportunity to practice and dance whether you sign up by yourself or with a partner. Studies have shown that learning to dance with a variety of partners helps you learn 30% faster, and it’s more fun too!

Since levels vary widely by studio and region, we ask dancers who are new to our studio to take their first class at the Intro level (or take a private lesson if you prefer) so your teacher can assess your level and recommend the best placement for you. When you’re ready to move-up, just ask your teacher.

Yes you can! Our systematic, stair-step approach can transform even the most awkward beginners to accomplished dancers. We truly believe everyone can learn and enjoy dancing.

There are many benefits to learning to dance, and here are a few:

Reduce your stress and add ✨JOY✨ to your life!

The music, the smiling faces, two people moving as one – it transports you to another world:  a happy place where our cares melt away, we’re in the moment, we feel vibrant and alive. Many of of students say their dance classes are the highlight of their week, a great joy in their lives, and something they look forward to all day.

Gain confidence and feel more comfortable in social situations

Have you ever been at a wedding or party and everyone is out dancing and you’re on the sidelines? Are you naturally more reserved and would like to feel more at ease in social situations? Has someone ever told you that you’re a “bad dancer” or you feel awkward or embarrassed while dancing? Our studio is a safe and supportive space and we’ve transformed thousands of students from awkward newbies to successful dancers. Our students tell us that not only do they feel more comfortable on the dance floor, they feel more comfortable in life as well!

Connect with our happy dance community

Our studio is a special place filled with joyful people and positive energy. We’ll laugh as we learn and cheer each other along the way. You’ll always feel a part of our community.

Have fun learning about different music & cultures

One of the best things about dance is the music. You’ll get to enjoy classic standards from elegant eras of old and get to rock out to modern hits you hear on the radio.

We love dancing for couples – no matter how long you’ve been together we’ve found dance enhances connection, communication, desire, and intimacy. Plus it makes a great date night. We’ve even had students tell us dance has saved their marriage.

Overcome loss or adversity

We’ve many students start dancing after the loss of a spouse, a divorce, or other challenge. They’ve told us that dance helped them emerge from the pain. It gave them something new to focus on and helped bring joy back into their lives.

Improve your grace, posture, and coordination

Dancers look amazing just standing there. The way they walk and hold themselves – it looks confident, graceful, and powerful. And when you learn to move through the world as a dancer, you look strong, you feel strong, and you’re ready for anything that comes your way.

Reduce your stress and add ✨JOY✨ to your life!

Our lives are busy, stressful. We feel anxious and depressed at times. Add a dose of joy and sunshine to your day with dance. You’ll smile more, relax, breathe, and enjoy life.

Dance is a great transition for new retirees or for anyone looking for a new challenge. Dance is a universal language and once you learn to dance, you’ll always be able to hit the dance floor feeling ready and confident.
