Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ1 - How are the lessons conducted?
Every lesson begins with a warm up session to a song. Lessons will be progressive, a new pattern is taught with every lesson and revision from previous lessons. Proper technique in footwork, body movement, leading and following will be incorporated. Since salsa/bachata/kizomba is a social dance we will rotate partners so everyone gets to practice with different partners.
FAQ2 - Do I need to bring a partner?
You do not have to bring a partner, unless you want to! We will be rotating partners throughout the class.
If you are attending lessons with your own partner or spouse, please inform the instructors if you wish to stay with your partner throughout the lesson.
FAQ3 - What is the correct attire?
If you do not own any dance shoes, you can wear anything that allows you to move comfortably. Please avoid wearing flip-flops, or high heeled shoes that you can't walk properly, let alone dance in! If you wish to continue on dancing, do invest in dance shoes or dance heels as they are the best options due to the smooth and flexible sole.
Ladies, if you are beginner dancer, avoid wearing too high heels as it will affect your ability to dance and balance well while doing turns. Highest heel recommendation for beginners is 2 inches. Once your technique is more efficient and consistent, then you can switch to heels of any height.
