I have two left feet. Should I even bother to come?
Yes! People at all levels of experience attend weekly. The more seasoned dancers are always willing to help you out if you want and need it. Also, our dances start out with covering the basics, so you'll never be left behind.
What if I don't have a dance partner?
Everyone is welcome! Couples and singles alike join the fun each week. During the lesson, partners are frequently rotated so you can dance with many others. People continue to change up who they dance with throughout the evening and, often times, we will have mixers and line dances so your feet can always be moving across the dance floor.
It's my date night. Do I have to rotate partners and dance with others?
Not at all! If you'd prefer to stay with the person you came with throughout the night, just wave people on by when they start to rotate during the lesson. We understand that time with the ones we love can be limited throughout the week, and it's fun to learn and grow in partner dance with someone you are comfortable with.
I don't have one of those sparkling dance costumes to wear. Can I just come in my jeans?
There is no formal dress code here at the St. Cloud Ballroom Dance Club, however, most people usually dress up rather than down. It's common to see women in a casual dress or nice top and a skirt, and men to be dressed in slacks and a button-up shirt, sometimes with a tie.
What kind of dances can I learn?
A lot of them! We have taught a mix of Smooth and Latin dances, anywhere from Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Salsa, Rumba, Swing, and many others! In general, an entire month is dedicated to one particular style of dance so that if you attend regularly, you can gain confidence with the steps of each dance. On occasion, we offer a variety month where some of the less common dances are introduced.
