How long will it take for me to learn how to dance?
Everyone learns differently. It won't be overnight and it will take practice. So give yourself grace, and enjoy the ride. We see the average person able to partnership dance and social less than a month with consistent attendance! If you want to expedite the process, we recommend private lessons. This way we can focus directly on just you, and not a whole class.

How do I know what size shoe to get?
Definitely varies company to company. Best advice: check reviews. Make sure to see Irene to reassure you're fitted into your shoes properly. (TIP: The big toe should not go behind the straps if you point your toe and your heel is flat against the floor.)
