What kind of dances do you teach?
We focus on lindy hop, charleston, balboa, and blues in our Tiger Rag lessons. We often teach a short east coast swing lesson (6-count) before our Friday dances, but we encourage everyone to learn lindy hop for the best dancing experience.
Do I need to bring a partner?
Partners are never necessary at our dances or lessons; both couples and singles are welcome! Many people come by themselves and we usually have a good balance of leaders and followers. During lessons, we rotate partners throughout the class so you will have a chance to dance with lots of different people. At swing dances, it is common to dance with many different people throughout the night.
What should I wear?
For lessons, we recommend any comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes. Many people who like to dance eventually invest in a pair of shoes specifically for dancing --- these shoes have soles (usually leather or suede) that are specifically designed for dance. Contact us or talk to any instructor if you're interested in learning more about dance shoes.
For dances, there is no dress code. Plenty of people wear t-shirts and jeans, while others dress up a little more.
