Frequently Asked Questions About Ballroom and Social Dance Instruction
Ballroom and social dancing classes are fun for students of all ages and levels of expertise. If you are considering signing up for a ballroom dance class, then these answers to some commonly asked questions might be of interest to you:

Why would I want to take a ballroom dance class?
Ballroom dancing classes are an excellent opportunity for exercise and social interaction. It is useful to know how to perform basic social dances for occasions such as weddings, anniversaries and many other special events.

What kinds of dances will I learn?
Basic ballroom dances include the tango, the waltz, cha cha, swing, foxtrot, quick step and salsa. Many dance classes offer modern club dancing techniques such as hip hop and line dancing. Dance instruction is generally broken down into levels of proficiency, such as beginner, intermediate, advanced and professional, so if you are not comfortable with your level of dance knowledge, you can join a course with others who are also new to dance instruction.

Do ballroom and social dancing instructors offer private coaching?
Many instructors at dance studios offer private coaching. However, private lessons are quite a bit more expensive than classes with other students. If you are preparing for a wedding dance or any type of choreographed dance for a special event, then it might be advisable to have private instruction so that your coach might devote all of his or her time to your routine.

What do I need to bring to a ballroom dance class?
You will want to bring comfortable shoes and wear clothing you can move in. Many dance instructors, however, insist that students wear ballroom grade shoes when learning certain dances, since the performance of the dances is affected by the height and feel of the shoes.

Many private studios offer classes for both adults and children. You can study proper technique and physical movement for a performance, along with how to dance socially. Lessons are typically offered on a wood floor, with proper shoes and apparel on for safety.

Get hours, location, dance specialty, price, teacher name, class time, class size, directions, and schedules.
