Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to take a private lesson, begin immediately! If you'd rather do a group lesson, please join during the 1st or 2nd week of the month.

Drop in classes can joined anytime.

Of course! Beginners are our specialty. Register for a Level 1 course online, by phone, or at the studio.

Students are required to take a minimum of 20 classes in current level before moving on or attend an evaluation class to progress sooner.

We recommend that students wear clothes that they can freely move in. Dance shoes with a leather sole are recommended. We advise against shoes with a rubber sole that will grip the floor. We do sell dance shoes at the studio. Stop by during front desk hours Mon-Thurs 12pm-9pm, Fri 12pm-8pm, or Sat 10am-4pm to try on shoes. Our address is 2978 S State Street in South Salt Lake.

All group lessons consist of 45min instruction and 15min dancing. All private lessons are 50min long.

Unfortunately it is hard to say how long it will take someone to learn how to dance. Everyone progresses at their own pace. On average it takes students a minimum of 5 months to become comfortable at the beginner level. You have to try it to find out! If you want to learn more quickly, we recommend private lessons.

We take dance education seriously, so we strongly recommend switching partners. This helps you become a great leader or follower by trying out what you're learning with everyone in the class. However, you do have the option of requesting to stay with your partner if that is your preference. Simply tell the instructor at the beginning of class.

99% of our classes don't require any partner at all! We try to make sure numbers stay as even as possible, and we rotate partners in class frequently so no one is left without a partner for long. Dance is naturally a social skill, we like to keep it that way!

Yes you can! A single class costs $15 and can be taken the first two weeks of a session.

We are a wide range of dance styles from Salsa, Bachata, Ballroom, West Coast Swing and Argentine Tango, to Country Western, Country Swing and Blues. Watch videos of each style here.

It really depends on your goal. If you are here to socialize, have fun, and learn a few steps, then group lessons are perfect for you. If you have goals to be a great social dancer, performer, or competitor, private lessons are the way to go. 

 

Policies & Procedures


You can register for dance classes online, over the phone or at the studio. We highly recommend pre-registering before classes start to save time and receive discounted prices!

Go to Beginner Level 1 courses if you are just starting out and register on the website.

Students who have paid should check-in on one of the iPads on the walls of the studio before proceeding to class. Please DO NOT join the class before checking in and remember you will be charged for all classes attended. Thank you!

All passes have an expiration date. Passes activate on your 1st visit. Please pay attention to the expiration on your receipt and use your package within that time frame. The classes do not "roll over" into other months to ensure more consistent classes and the best possible progression of learning.

All payments for classes should be made BEFORE attending the class. In the case that you are attending more than one class in a night and one of the classes is unpaid, payment should be made before attending the unpaid class. Whenever possible, we recommend paying online to skip the line and save yourself time. We accept cash, Visa, Discover & Mastercard (NO checks or AmEx).

We love you, but there are no refunds on anything purchased online, over the phone, or in the studio.

You can pay for our group classes in 3 different ways: Single class ($15/pp per class), Monthly Membership ($99 - $119/month), 12 class punch card/90 days ($10/pp per class). All cost is per person. Classes don't roll over. See pricing page for more details.
