When you’re first starting out in the world of dance, you might wonder which dances you should start learning first. Swing dancing always turns heads in a crowd and the Bachata is too hot to handle. While some dances can be bigger showstoppers than others, we think a great place to start dancing is to learn how to waltz.

Does it feel like a chore to go to the gym day in and day out? Are you tired of doing the same old workout each week? Are you ready to ramp up your fitness but sick of staring at a row of dark and dingy treadmills?
When signing up for dance classes you may imagine a ballroom full of impeccably dressed men in full suits and shiny shoes and sparkling flowy-gowned women gracefully floating around the room. Although this may be a realistic picture of a ballroom competition or show case, this is not how we dancers always dress during dance class. So, to follow dance etiquette, we have a few simple suggestions to help you navigate how to dress for dance class.
Ballroom dancing is a broad term often used to describe several different types of dance styles. However, even if you have never taken ballroom dance lessons, you most likely have at least heard the names of these specific dance styles before. Most of these styles originated in Latin dance but all have become mainstream dance styles that we teach our students. Let’s break them down into dance styles that are best for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students.
