Q & A

 

What is the best way to start? The best way is to start with the introductory package, which includes three private lessons for a very low cost. A private lesson is a one-on-one instruction with the teacher; it gives you the chance to ask as many questions as possible, and most importantly you can learn at your own pace.  Remember that private lessons are scheduled at your convenience.

Which dance is the best for me to start?

At Palm Beach Dancing, we let new students pick their own dance to start with. But if they don’t have anything specific in mind, we always encourage them to start with the Rumba as it is the basic of all Latin dances and the Foxtrot for the modern dances.

Dancing is for everyone who loves music and wants to be sociable.  If you have the desire to dance and you are willing to be committed, we assure you that in no time, you can achieve your goal of becoming a great dancer.

How long will it take me to learn?

It depends on how often you attend classes and how much time you devote to practicing what you have learned.  Everyone’s ability to learn and retain is different.  Our advice to students is to practice as much as possible.

What do I need to wear for classes?

Classes are offered in a very relax atmosphere.  Wear something comfortable that will allow you to move freely. No sandals or flip flops.

Do I need dance shoes?

Dance shoes are recommended but if you are not sure you want to keep dancing and do not want to invest in a dance shoe, just wear a leather soled shoes if possible, but it’s worth having dance shoes because you will learn much faster.
