Do I Need to Bring My Own Partner?
It’s always best to have your own dancing partner. However, if you have yet to find one, you are still welcome to join our classes. As dancing is a social activity, we encourage students to rotate partners while in class as we believe different people have different techniques of dancing. This will help students adapt to different style of lead and follow thus help them to achieve precision.
