- I’ve never danced before, is that OK?
- That’s OK! Everyone starts with a first lesson. We offer classes that are fun and educational!
- I have no rhythm and two left feet, can I learn?
- Of course you can! There is someone out there that has two “right feet.” Regarding rhythm, you can learn it, just be patient and have fun!
- Do I need to bring a partner?
- No. West Coast Swing is a social dance, which means you just show up, take a lesson, then dance with whomever you ask, or whomever asks you!
- How should I dress?
- Dress comfortably! Ladies will want to have flats or a low heel with a back, no sandals or flip-flops. Guys, no sneakers. The rubber bottoms are too sticky.
- I just started and don’t know a lot of “moves,” what should I do?
- You should stay and dance! It’s OK that you don’t know a lot of moves. Tell your partner that you are a new dancer. We all start somewhere and practice makes you learn the dance quicker!
