Showing Up Prepared To Our Ballroom Dance Classes
Many people tend to flake or be turned off from the idea of a dance class not due to a lack of interest, but simply because they don’t know what to expect. We tend to fear the unknown or things that we don’t understand, so don’t worry — this is completely natural!
Our FAQ page does a great job at addressing these potential fears and concerns, but we’ll recap a few of the most common questions that we receive from prospective dance class goers:
Am I Required To Bring A Dance Partner With Me?
Not at all! One of the main hesitations that people have before they take an adult dance class is that they don’t have someone in mind to dance with. You can dance if you want to, you can leave your friends behind…because we teach singles and couples-based dance moves.
As far as couples-based dancing goes, so long as you’re willing to be friendly and get a little up and personal with someone new, we promise that you’ll have a good time. Never feel ashamed about showing up to our adult dance studio by yourself!
What Do I Wear?
This is an understandable concern. No one wants to feel like they’ve underdressed or overdressed, or just flat-out worn the wrong outfit. Though we host classy social events where dancers dress up in formal wear, we strongly recommend showing up in comfortable clothing that’s easy to move around in.
More importantly, make sure to wear shoes with a leather-sole bottom that are also easy to move around in. Rubber-bottomed shoes will stick to our floor and prevent fluid movements, so no athletic shoes, please!
How Often Do I Have To Take Lessons To Improve?
There’s no magic number of times per week or times per month in which our adult dance classes will be helpful. If you’re brand new to learning just about any type of dance, even one class is sure to be of benefit to you. Like exercise, however, the more often you do it (without strenuously pushing yourself), the faster you’ll improve and see results.
You Keep Mentioning “Adult Dance Classes.” What About Dance Classes For Kids?
Modern Ballroom Dance Studio is proud to have a kids dance program at our Woodbridge dance studio. Why let adults have all of the fun? We offer ballet classes for kids, jazz/contemporary dance classes for kids, and ballroom dance classes for kids age 6 or older. Visit the link above to learn more, or reach out to us if you have any specific questions.
How Social Dance Lessons Work, Exactly?
Our social ballroom dance lessons offer a relaxed, fun, and as you may have guessed, social environment to dance in. The idea is to teach you simple but common dance moves that you’d need to know (or want to know) in a variety of fairly standard social situations. Here are some common applications for our social dance lessons:
- Nightclubs and venues
- Corporate events
- Date nights
Whether you’re casually at a bar and you want to impress your date or you want the confidence to own the wedding reception dance floor, our social dance lessons offer valuable and practical dance knowledge that you’ll hold onto for the rest of your life.
Wedding Dance Lessons In Woodbridge
Knowing how to dance appropriately in a variety of social situations, as we just touched on above, is a very useful skill to possess in life. Preparing to dance at your wedding, be it a few months from now or years down the line, is the most important social event of all. Therefore, you’ll probably want to be prepared.
Due to the relative popularity of weddings (and the sheer significance of them in one’s life), Modern Ballroom Dance Studio proudly offers ballroom wedding dance lessons specifically for grooms and brides-to-be.
Though the dance moves that we’ll help you learn vary based on what style of wedding you’re having, our ballroom dance studio will help instill you with the confidence that you need to truly rock it on the big day. Remember, don’t wait until you’re only a few weeks out from your wedding — it takes longer than this to really nail down a first dance, even if it’s a relatively simple one!
This is a celebration of your big day, and we want to ensure that preparing for it is as enjoyable as possible.
