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.
