Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Is The Session?

Each session is normally 4 weeks in total (Holidays may affect the duration of a session). We’ve found through countless classes that 4 ninety minute classes provide a perfect amount of time for students to get ample opportunity to review, repeat and refine the fundamentals of dancing Salsa.

What Kind Of Clothing Should I Wear?

We highly recommend you wear clothing that you feel comfortable in when you are actively moving. As for footwear, you should wear shoes that don’t have a sticky bottom and if you wear heels, please make sure they are dance heels that support your feet when you dance to avoid injury.

What Happens If I Miss A Class?

There is good news! While the obvious best option is to attend the class, as a backup, we provide videos to keep you up to date on the class material so you can practice at home. You’ll receive the material from class and won’t get left behind!

Do I Need To Come With A Partner?

If you and a your friends want to join us, then the more the merrier! Don’t worry though, if you sign up by yourself, rest assured that we will consistently rotate to ensure everyone gets a chance to dance, practice and have fun!

How Is The Parking?

There is free parking on the north side of North Ave as well as on the side streets adjacent to the studio. There is also metered parking directly in front of the studio. You won’t have trouble finding a place to park!

Understanding Leads and Follows in Salsa

In Salsa dancing, we have two main roles: the lead and the follow. Think of the lead as the one suggesting the next move, kind of like saying, “Hey, let’s try this!” The follow then goes with the flow, turning those suggestions into the movements.

What’s cool about Salsa is that it doesn’t matter who leads or follows; anyone can pick the role they vibe with, regardless of gender. It’s all about what feels right for you and having fun with it. So whether you enjoy taking the lead, following along, or mixing it up, Salsa is all about connecting with your partner and enjoying the dance.
