When can I start?
You can join our classes at any point! You don’t need to wait until the start of a new term, or book in advance - just come along on the day to register.
What do I wear?
Something comfy that you can move easily in, and won’t get too hot in! For Ballroom & Latin, Salsa, or Tango, ‘Smart casual’ is a guide. In reality anything from jeans or jogging bottoms to skirts and heels goes! Shoes with less grip, rather than a trainer, are better for this form of dance to aid you with turns and nice smooth movements! Ladies - if you are comfortable wearing a heel you may although please note that stilettos or metal heels are not allowed in the studio as they damage the floor. For Dance Fit: Trainers/Dance sneakers and sports / gym wear!
*Please be advised that we recommend that dance sneakers (with spin spots on the soles) are more suitable for dance fitness classes especially if you have any issues with knee joints as they reduce traction on the floor. If you have any concerns do not hesitate to contact us.
Do I need a partner?
No! Unlike many schools we don’t require you to bring a partner to Ballroom & Latin, Salsa, or Tango - As long as you are prepared to have a go, join in and dance with whomever is there or have a run though with an instructor! Please note that whilst we do our best to help everyone, we cannot always guarantee you will have a partner for the whole duration of the class (unless you bring one with you that is!) However we always ensure that everyone has danced with a partner sufficiently throughout the class for it to be an enjoyable experience.
Do I have to pay for a course of lessons?
No! We run on a ‘pay as you go’ basis, which means that you only have to pay for the classes you attend. You may do this at the start of each class, or if you wish you can puchase a voucher and save yourself a few pounds!
Can I bring my own water or drinks?
No, we are a licensed bar and coffee shop so only drinks purchased from the bar may be consumed on the premises.
Can my kids wait while my class takes place?
Children are not permitted to stay during adults class times. This ensures that children are not left unsupervised, preserves the adult atmosphere in the classes, and also gives you a break so you can fully relax!
I have a medical condition or injury – Can I still take part?
Always consult your doctor before undertaking any new form of exercise. It is your responsibility to look after yourself and know your limits! Always let your instructor know about your condition or injury in plenty of time before the class. Take things at your own pace and if you find anything too much don’t be afraid to say something or ask you instructor for advice. Many people find that the right form of dance can help them keep active, keep joints supple, and even help improve posture which can ease some aches and pains. Dance also has its therapeutic benefits – dance can help those suffering with stress or depression and could even be a helpful incentive if you are dieting or quitting smoking. Be warned that dance comes with it’s own health warning – highly addictive!
