You don’t need to bring a partner. We allways try to keep a balance between leaders and followers in our classes.
That depends, please make an appointment or speak with us so we can assess your current level. You can attend the level we recommend for you and any other level below.
We seriously want to help everyone be their best version as a dancer, but for that, specially since you are going to be dancing with other people, we need to make groups where everyone can follow the class and no one gets frustrated feeling unable to follow the class, or delaying the rest of the group.
If there is something we both have become experts at after so many years, is to teach people from zero and make every movement understandable for everyone. As far as you can walk, or move, you are able to dance socially
Any clothes are ok as far as it is confortable for moving. Although, in many studios we are required to wear a clean pair of shoes, so please bring another pair of shoes.
We are gonna need a longer answer here.
That depends on what you are looking for. If you are choosing strictly between private lessons or group classes, then private lessons will give you the most effective learning experience, and at a much faster pace, although, these have a higher price tag than group classes. Group classes are usually more fun and social, while private classes are more challenging and focused.
Going Further: Private Lessons
- Allows you to work one on one with a teacher.
- Learning is quicker in a one on one setting because the content is specific to the individual.
- Questions, difficulties, or any problem can be fixed immediately in a private lesson.
- Private lessons are scheduled based on your schedule
- Private lessons for any hobby are more expensive, including dancing.
Going Further: Group Lessons
- Add context and repetition to a specific dance or skill
- Are scheduled at set times throughout the week
- Have more students than teachers, so we give more general feedback and less specific to each person
- Are less costly than private lessons
- The pace is set by the group not by the individual
- This is like learning a language, so, the more people you dance with, feeling the similarities and differences for the same patterns, the better you will understand the essence of that dance
The answer is with private, group and social dance, the three of them together.
Group classes are super good to build your base, socialise, and add repetition and context to your dance. It makes you use your muscle memory more than your brain through repetition.
Private classes go deeper in developing your skill and help cleaning your movements more specifically.
Social dance/ practice parties provide practical application, solidify your muscle memory in a more relaxed environment, and give you real time feedback for how your dance is developing.
