Frequent asked questions
DO I NEED TO BRING A PARTNER?
Coming with a partner is not necessary. Many students come for the class alone, or with a group of friends. In any case, during the class, you will be partnered up with your classmates and partners will be rotated during each class so that everyone gets a chance to have a partner. If we have an imbalance, students without partners simply wait between pairs for the next rotation. We will be rotating partners frequently throughout the class.
I AM A FLIGHT ATTENDANT, I DON’T HAVE FIXED DAY OFF, HOW I CAN JOIN THE CLASSES?
Bailamos offer you classes 5 days a week, you may join the class when ever you are free.
I AM COMING WITH A PARTNER. CAN WE DANCE TOGETHER DURING THE CLASS
Yes. Whether you dance together during the lesson or swap partners (or a combination of the two) is entirely up to you. Please let your teacher know you wish to stay together. If you feel more comfortable dancing together during salsa lessons, that is fine. (You may wish to bear in mind, however, that couples often progress faster when they dance with other people as well.) We leave that up to you, just have a BLAST!
DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE CLASSES?
Yes we do, please email us what type of private class(es) you would like to have and we'll be happy to arrange it for you.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO COME IN FOR CLASSES
Most students come in at least once a week, however we also have students who are in the studio every day, the choice is yours.
WHAT SHOES ARE THE BEST?
Guys: Sneakers are OK for 1st or 2nd class, but not ideal. From there on, try wear smooth soles, preferably suede or leather. Avoid rubber soles that will grip the floor. Best to wear enclosed shoes to protect your feet on the dance floor or you might regret it when a 3 inch heel comes your way!
Ladies: No thongs or sandles. Runners are ok for 1st or 2nd class, but not ideal. Its really important ladies to have a smooth sole, preferably suede. Don't wear anything that will grip the floor. Make sure it is snug on your feet and will keep your heel and ankle in place. Keep in mind that you will be turning, therefore your feet need to have stability and feel secure. This will prevent twists and sprains.
