What should I wear for my dance lesson?
Everyday attire is appropriate for dancing. A lightweight dress shoe is best if you do not have ballroom dance shoes. You can buy your dance shoes here at Grand Ballroom Dance Studio. Please do not wear sneakers, rubber-soled shoes, or metal spike-heel shoes.
How much can I learn in five lessons?
You'll get the basics down in 3-5 dances. We show you how to interrelate similar patterns in multiple dances. This helps you reinforce one particular dance because you've adapted that same step in another dance.
Will I be taking lessons with people of my own age?
Most likely. Grand Ballroom Dance Studio students range in age from 13-82 years young! A few teens attend our Swing dance group lessons, though most of our students are 35-55, and attend lessons twice a week.
Do I need to have a partner to take lessons?
No, not at all. You will take your private lessons with an instructor and your group lessons with the entire group. Many of our couples take their lessons separately, each with their own instructor. Others learn together with one instructor.
