*** FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ***
Q. Do I need any previous dance experience?
Absolutely not! The Level 1 Beginner class is perfect for you. You can learn West Coast Swing in three easy steps, even if you have never danced before and have two left feet.
Q. Do I need to come with a partner?
No, you do NOT need a partner for the class. If you have someone you would like to learn with, that is fantastic. But you do not need a partner to take the class. The class is structured so you rotate with different partners throughout the class. It’s a great way to meet new people and you also get to dance with a variety of leads and follows.
Q. What type of shoes should I wear?
If you already have dance shoes, then bring those. If you don’t have dance shoes, then something with a leather or suede sole is best. If not, then just wear your most comfortable pair of shoes.

Wear whatever you will feel most comfortable in. West Coast Swing is a very casual dance so wear your favorite jeans and t-shirt if you want.
