Do I need to register for your classes or can I just turn up to class?
If you have found out about our classes at the last minute and don't have time to register, simply turn up to class on the first day. We do usually prefer advance registrations as it helps us balance leader and follower numbers. It also ensures that our classes don't get too full.

Is there a charge for registration?
No, registration is absolutely free of charge. We simply require your name and a way to contact you in case we need to regarding classes.

I am not sure what level my dance skills are at (Beginners/Intermediate/Advanced). Which class should I register for?
If in doubt, please contact us and we will help you to find a suitable class for your level.

Do I need a dance partner?
You can enrol individually in general. Sometimes, more followers enrol to classes than leaders do. Therefore it would be great if you could convince a couple of male friends to come to class with you. But, don't worry! Even if you come to class without a partner you will not find yourself standing around, as we swap partners every few minutes so that everyone learns everything we teach.

Can I join classes at any time or do you have terms?
Most of our courses last 5 weeks after which a new term starts right away. If you would like to join a Beginners course and have no experience dancing that style yet, you should attend the course starting with the very first lesson. If you have danced that dance style before (you know the basic steps) and have just missed the start of the course, you should contact us. We will tell you what we have taught in the first few class and discuss whether you can still join the term. As our classes are progressive, you may find it difficult to catch up after missing more than one class. Private lessons are also a very good option for catching up on missed classes.

Do we have to swap dance partners?
We recommend strongly to swap dance partners at class and dance with all the other students . You will find that this helps you a lot in your learning process as every leader leads differently and every follower follows differently. If you only dance with one partner all the time it is likely that you will get used to your partner's mistakes without your partner even knowing that they are making a mistake and vice versa. However, if you do not wish to swap partners anyay, we will respect this.

What should I bring to class?
We don't need you to bring too much to class. However, it is recommended to have some water to drink during class. And since most of the moves we teach involve dancing with a partner, it is recommended to use a nice deodrant and chewing gum or mints. It's certainly nicer to dance with someone who smells fresh.

What should I wear (clothes/shoes) to class?
When coming to class, just wear light and comfortable clothes (t-shirts, jeans etc.) as it can get quite warm. We also recommend wearing comfortable and light shoes like sneakers for the initial classes. Shoes should not be too heavy, shouldn't have too high a heel and should support your feet well. If wearing sneakers, just ensure that the sole doesn't stick to the floor and you are able to turn freely in your shoes. Leather soles can be too slippery and can make dancing tougher.We recommend bringing in a pair of clean shoes to wear in the dance studios, especially in winters.

As you progress to more advanced levels, we would recommend investing in a pair of dance shoes, dance practice sneakers or jazz slippers. Practice sneakers and jazz slippers have almost no sole and are very comfortable and light. These are available for both men and women (and we can recommend some good shops to buy these from). More formal dance shoes usually have a suede sole and although there is a huge selection to choose from for women, unfortunately there aren't so many for the men.

Where are your classes held?
The class schedule shows where all classes take place. Usually, our classes will take place at the same venue. Workshops and parties may take place at different venues than usually.

Are the classes progressive? What if I miss some classes?
Our courses are structured and run progressively. At the beginning of every lesson we quickly go through what we have taught in the previous class, so that students can remember moves more easily. If you have missed the previous class you may be able to catch up on the new moves during this quick recap. However, if you have missed more than one class you may find catching up on your own difficult. In this case, feel free to contact us and we can discuss a solution.

How much do classes cost?
You will find all our prices in the class schedule.

Can I try one class first?
Instead of paying for the term you can attend and pay for just one class first. If the class was too easy or difficult for your level, we will help you to find a more suitable class for you which you then will not have to pay for. However, we do not offer free trial classes.

Are there any student discounts?
We offer Dance Cards to all our students, which offer a very cost-effective way to pay for classes. Therefore, we do not offer any additional discounts to students.

How can I pay for classes?
You can either pay by cash at the class or make a direct credit transaction at least 3 days before the respective class starts. Please note your name and the course name on the direct credit transaction. We only accept payment by Direct Credit for Dance Cards or private lessons. Casual "per class" payments can be made by cash on the day.

Do I have to pay for the entire term?
No, you can either pay per class or purchase a Dance Card which is valid for 30 days days.

Can you recommend some nice dance music for practice?
This is some of the music we often use for our classes. These songs have a clear rhythm and are slow to medium speed, so they are good for practicing. In addition, you can also download our own self-composed music off our website. If you are looking for faster music, e.g. for a party, feel free to contact us and we will recommend some other songs.

When will I be good enough to go to dance parties?
It is never too early to go to a party! Even if you might not want to dance first, parties are good to watch other dancers dance, get a feel for the music and timing and of course to get to know other dancers.
