Do I need a partner for the partner style courses?

No. All classes and courses are designed so that everyone rotates partners on a continuous basis. This means everyone gets to dance with everyone else, making a very social environment where friends are made right from the first class. Changing partners is encouraged however couples that wish not to change partners simply need to inform their instructor of their wishes. Changing partners in the class also means that you will learn proper techniques to lead or follow and not for bad habits.

What do I wear to class?

Basically wear what ever clothes you feel comfortable in weather it be jeans and a t-shirt or dress, skirt, trousers and top. It is the choice of footwear that is more important when it comes to dancing. Whiilst no special shoes are required in the beginning, make sure the soles of the shoes is not TOO sticky (ie rubber undersole) also ensure that the shoe holds firmly to the front and back (no slip on sandals) - this will help both with turns!

What do I bring to class

There is plenty of street parking though remember there can be up to 200 people passing through the classes on any given night so the earlier you arrive the closer the parking spot you can secure! There's also a car park at the end of Churchill Avenue that is free in the evenings (it is only a 2 minute walk from the studio). There are also plenty of side streets with free parking.
