Do I need a partner for private lessons or group classes?
No a partner is not necessary. If you purchase a private lesson without a partner you'll dance with your instructor. During group classes the students dance with one another or instructors and partners are welcome but not necessary.
What do I wear for private lessons, group classes or parties?
Wear something comfortable that won't inhibit your movement. Some people come straight from work or are dressed up for a night on the town, while others arrive in work out clothes. Anything that makes you feel comfortable is acceptable.
What kind of shoes do I need?
Leather sole shoes work best. Athletic shoes aren't ideal because they tend to stick to the floor, but, would be just fine in a pinch. For the ladies, please wear something that secures your heal -- flip flops and sandals are not ideal. Flats and high heels with an ankle strap are just fine.
