Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ1 - How are lessons conducted?
The lessons are structured progressively such that students learn how to lead (men role) and follow (lady role) in various partnerwork patterns/footwork. By the end of the 6th session you would have learnt a significant amount of "vocabulary" and in the 7th practice session, you practice putting them together in a social dance setting.
FAQ2 - What happens when I complete Level 1 Course?
There is no end to learning and how good you can get! The natural progression would be Level 2 and various workshops as you along.
FAQ3 - Do I need to bring a partner?
You do not have to bring a partner, unless you want to! We will be rotating partners within small groups in the class.
FAQ4 - 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 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.
