Learn to Dance Together!



Frequently Asked Questions....

Do I need a partner?

Due to COVID-19 our our regular group class program and practice nights require a parter. However, you do not need a partner for some private lessons, specific singles-only groups and zumba classes.

What clothes should I wear?

Our studio has an easygoing, casual feel. 'Nice' casual clothes are recommended while workout wear, shorts and tank tops would be considered inappropriate. We also ask that you avoid perfumes as some students may be allergic. For a more detailed review of clothing and etiquette tips please visit our etiquette guide.

What shoes should I wear?

The best shoe is one that is comfortable and offers good balance. For beginners we recommend a comfortable dress shoe; rubber soled sneakers make turning much more difficult. For ladies we recommend a heel height that you would be comfortable walking in. A flat shoe would also be just fine.

If you expect to carry on with your dancing for longer than a month or two then we request that you buy some dance shoes. They are more comfortable and easier to dance in than street shoes as well as safer for your partner.

What if I miss a class?

Missing a class is not a problem. We understand that people have busy lives and that things come up. With that in mind we always take time to review at the beginning of each class.

What is the age range at your studio?

We have a very wide demographic - people of all ages love to dance! Most of our students are between 30 and 70 years old, but we also have people in their early 20's and 80's. If you're under 18, you'll need to accompanied by your parent or bring a signed note of permission from your parents and their phone number.

Do you switch partners in your classes?

We do not switch partners in any of our dance activities.

How do I get the most out of my lessons?

To get the most out of your lessons you need to dance! Come to the practice parties, attend the workshops, and take regular private lessons to make sure you're on track. We know that when you first begin, there's a lot to take in and so we also have an online resource, www.dancingfordessert.com where you can review most of your introductory and Bronze 1 steps

How do I register?

You can register by phone at 604-881-1234 or email at dancingfordessert@gmail.com We accept debit, credit, cash or cheque.

What if we missed the first class of a series?

This is a tricky one. If you've never danced before your should probably either wait until the next start date or take a private lesson to catch up. If you have some dance experience please talk to us so we get a feel for how quickly you'd pick up the material.
