How do I register?

Once you fill out the registration form, you can come try your first class free. Payments will be accepted in the form of cash or check at the beginning of the second week of class.
How does the semester work?

The second semester is from January 21st to May 23rd (with vacations from Feb. 25th to Mar. 7th, and then April 22nd to May 2nd.
Do I need a partner to register?
Or can I register by myself?
You can register without a partner, it’s totally possible! However, in the case that the classes aren’t balanced between leaders and followers, we prioritize those students who have signed up with a partner.
In addition, when students sign up without a partner, we prioritize those in the order by which they have signed up… so it’s best to sign up fast!
Also very important!!! The role of the leader and follower are not dependent upon the gender of the student! Therefore, in the case that space is limited due to more leaders than followers, or vise-versa, we encourage students consider learning the other role.
Lastly, we also offer classes dedicated to the learning of both roles (leader and follower). These are great classes, open to everyone, and highly recommended to students who wish to learn more in depth about connection and technique.
What should I expect on my first day of class?
When you come to class—whether you sign up with or without a partner—you will have the opportunity to dance with all the other students. We believe changing partners is essential to learning the dance, and it gives you the chance to connect to other dancers with ease when dancing in a festival or at a soirée where there are other dancers!
In the dance, there are two roles: leader, and follower. We believe that these roles are not determined by gender, and therefore we encourage you to choose the one which feels right for you.
What should I wear?
We recommend that you come dressed comfortable, with shoes and clothing that allows you to move!
Do you offer free classes to try???
