Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started dancing?
Getting started is easy. The first step is to schedule an introductory lesson with one of our trained instructors. During that lesson, your instructor will introduce you to a variety of dances and see how you learn to recommend a proper program for you to continue.
How long does it take to learn to dance?
Everyone’s goals are different. After your initial appointment, you and your teacher can determine which dances you like and how proficient you would like to be. Some students are satisfied with a few lessons, others would prefer to feel more natural on the dance floor which requires more practice.
How much do lessons cost?
Tuition varies, depending on a number of factors e.g., how good you want to be, how many dances you want to learn, and your dance schedule. Remember – YOUR FIRST LESSON IS ONLY $20. Most students start with a small dance program to start while they try out different dances and then enroll on a personalized program once they have determined the dances they would like to concentrate on.
Does the fee have to be paid in advance?
Many students choose to pay for their programs in advance, however every situation is different and we offer payment plans comfortable for almost every budget.
When can I take lessons?
You can take your lessons any time you wish. Some students like to have standing appointments weekly, however we can schedule your lessons based on your availability. Our studio is open Mon-Fri from 1pm-10pm.
