Some helpful information to get you started

If you are beginners and haven’t danced much before – no problem! Our professional choreographers are there to put you at ease and help guide you. Just relax and go with the flow of the music.
You will be absolutely fine and amazed at how quickly you will improve.
What clothes should you wear for lessons?
Anything comfortable to start with but try to wear shoes similar to those you are wearing on the day.
How far in advance should you start your lessons?
If you want to do something slow and traditional like a Waltz, Foxtrot or Rumba, consider booking your lessons a month in advance of the big day. If you are doing a unique routine which consists of lots of different moves then two months in advance would be absolutely fine.
