♦ Where Are You Located?
We rent from two different locations:
Nope! We've got you covered! ^_^ We always rotate partners in class; not only do you get to dance with everyone this way, it's also crucial for developing and maintaining good lead and follow skills!
♦ What Do I Wear?
Classes are very casual. Actual dance shoes are not mandatory. As long as you've got comfortable clothes and shoes you can dance in (flip flops not recommended), you're good to go! :)
♦ Where Can I Find Dance Shoes?
There's a few places in town that sell dance shoes.
They're usually very expensive and have only a small selection,
but at least you can try them on.
Make Believe at 1855 Parental Home Rd & also at 10950 San Jose Blvd
Dance N' Stuff at 8011 Merrill Rd
Much better prices and bigger selections are available online.
There are many, many different sites. Ally usually gets her dance shoes at
The Duct Tape Trick
Have a pair of rubber soles you wish you could dance in?
Try putting duct tape on the bottoms! (No, seriously, it really works! ^_^)
You have mastered a move when you can smoothly and comfortably lead/follow it both with AND without a partner, from all applicable hand holds, and consecutively amongst other moves.
If you are unsure whether or not you've mastered all the moves in a level, feel free to ask any one of our instructors to dance with you and assess how you're doing.
You are not required to completely master a level before taking the next level class. However, we will expect you to be able to execute all the moves that have preceded that level.
Also, keep in mind that on the social dance floor, people you dance with will tend to be more impressed by a few well mastered moves than by a vast assortment of semi-mastered moves.
Thus, even if you start studying the next level of moves, don't stop working on moves from the
previous level if you haven't completely mastered them, yet.
