Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I LEARN TO DANCE?
Yes! Dancing is as easy as walking. Hundreds have been successfully trained at St. Pete Dance. And all lessons are guaranteed - if you are not 100% satisfied with your progress, there is no charge for your lesson.

 
DO I NEED A PARTNER?
No. We can teach you how to dance with or without a partner.

 
WILL THE INTRODUCTORY COURSE TAKE CARE OF ALL MY DANCING NEEDS?
Unfortunately, no. As the name suggests, this course is mainly designed to introduce you to the studio, the staff and our system of teaching.

 
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BE A GOOD DANCER?
Although you will be dancing on your very first lesson, there are many factors that determine how long it will take to be good: your natural ability; frequency and consistency of lessons; and how much you practice. Learning to dance is easy but to be able to dance smoothly and comfortably takes a little more time.

 
WHAT IS THE AGE RANGE OF YOUR STUDENTS?
Ballroom dancing is enjoyed by people of all ages - from those in their teens to those in their 70’s and beyond!

 
WHAT DO I WEAR FOR MY LESSONS?
There is no strict dress code for ballroom dancing. Dress comfortably and avoid restrictive clothing (such as a long
tight skirt). As for footwear, avoid shoes that may slip off easily while dancing (such as mules or flip-flops) as well as sneakers - they tend to stick to the floor.

 
CAN I BRING FRIENDS?
Absolutely! Just let us know whom and how many you would like to bring. Also, once you become a regular student, you can bring guests to our Guest Parties and earn free lessons!

 
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE INTRODUCTORY COURSE?
Your teacher will recommend the best way for you to continue. If you decide this is not for you, there is absolutely no obligation for you to sign up for more lessons.
