Your First Lesson

Here’s the rundown on what to wear, when to arrive and what to expect on your first lesson.

The hardest step you will ever take at Social Dance Studios is the one through the front door, so here are a few helpful hints to make it just that much easier:

What to Wear– Smart casual is the best way to describe the outfits most people wear for their lessons but the most important thing is that you feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Ladies shoes should have a low to mid heel and preferably a strap or fastening to make sure your shoes are secure when you are dancing. Men can wear a dress shoe or boot but we recommend you stay away from rubber soled foot wear because they will stick to the floor and make it harder to move.

When to Arrive– Try to arrive at least 10 minutes before your first lesson to make sure you are not rushed. When you get to the studio check in with Caitlin our front of house meeter and greeter to let us know when you have arrived. If all the instructors are on lessons and no one is at the desk feel free to make yourself at home, grab a coffee or water and as soon as your instructor is finished on their lesson they will get you started on your lesson.

What to Expect on Your Lesson – On your Complimentary Lesson it is the instructor’s job to get to know you and find out what you would like from your dancing so they can design the best possible program to suit your skill level and dance goals. We usually start with a chat sitting down and then move onto the dance floor where we’ll introduce you to the basics of a couple of dances. We offer a friendly and hassle free environment with no pressure to buy or strings attached just a chance for you to get to know what our studio can offer you.
