Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Clothes, shoes & a smile. Deodorant is also good. Think smartish casual, try to avoid sticky shoes, flip flops and really really really really short skirts.
WHAT MUSIC DO WE DANCE TO?
Anything Top 40, Blues, Soul and R&B. Our crew update the music list every single week, so you’ll always have the latest & greatest tunes! For those more musically minded we dance to music in 4/4 rhythm that’s around the 90-120bpm range.
HOW LONG BEFORE I’M AWESOME?
Depends on how awesome you already are, but usually within 2-4 dance classes you’ll be dancing the evening away confidently and having a blast.
WHEN CAN I TAKE INTERMEDIATE CLASSES?
Generally after around 6-8 West Coast Swing classes, or when you are extremely comfortable doing the 4 basics (a side pass, a sugar push, a whip & a starter step). Feel free to ask one of our crew and they will do their best to guide you!
