FAQ

Where do I start? Which class is right for me?
Our dance classes are self-evaluated, so there is no introductory class prerequisite. Dancers with experience are welcome to skip beginner classes. If you are unsure, beginner/intro classes are a great place to start. You will still get a great workout and will be able to talk directly with the instructor afterwards about the best placement for you.


What should I wear to class?
No matter which class you are taking, your comfort is important. All of these answers are to help guide you feel confident in class, but the most important thing is that you are coming to class comfortable and willing to learn.

** Hip hop/street: Wear clothing that is comfortable to you, the clothes you wear should be what makes you feel loose and comfortable. Wearing tennis/street shoes are important to have to execute the grounded movements.
** Contemporary: In contemporary classes you traditionally see more form-fitting clothing. The class requires either bare feet, socks with grip (such as Nike or Under Armour socks), or a type of half sole shoe, no tennis shoes.
** Street Jazz : this class is all about confidence so wear whatever you want! Street Jazz students might get more extra and personalized with their outfit choices. This class is typically taken in street/tennis shoes or jazz shoes.

In addition to whatever you choose to wear, please bring a water bottle. We have a water fountain for refilling bottles only.
