Where do you hold your lessons?
Our main studio is in Stamford. A private space with mirrors, and great wood floor.We also will teach at your location. We also host dance practice nights at area restaurants. Being a independent teacher allows me to travel.
Do I need a partner?
No you do not, as you should first concentrate on your skills and then you will become more confident to dance with anyone. You can also always meet others at my group or socials to practice with. Practice is very important anyway.
How long does it take to learn?
This is always a hard question. As it will vary on how often you take your lessons to retain what you learn. Do you practice in between your sessions. As learning has its stages- with dance it is learning the moves, the music and partnership just to start. Give yourself time to learn. Nothing comes overnight.
What kind of shoes should I wear?
It is important to wear a shoe that has support and flexibility. We don't recommend sneakers, boots or shoes without a back to them. I can show you dance shoes that will help you progress quickly, and teach your feet to move properly.
