EVENT FAQ

What to wear?

-You want to dress up for your night on the town, but it’s also important to feel comfortable dancing.

– Comfortable shoes that won’t fall off. You’ll be on your feet, and you’ll be busting a move! Wearing heels? An ankle strap is helpful.

– Clothes that don’t impede your movement. Can you move your arms? Can you move your legs? Can you carry a cocktail?

 

Do I have to have prior dance experience?

No- not to worry! We are all beginners at something, and we want you to have fun!

 

Single vs. Couple?

No partner? No problem! There will be plenty of people to dance with.

You can bring a dance partner or mix and mingle- everyone is welcome.
