FAQ

  • Do I need a partner?
  • Nope :-) Singles, as well as couples, are welcome and encouraged to join our group classes. We rotate partners throughout class so you'll have so you'll have ample opportunity to practice and dance whether you sign up by yourself or with a partner. Learning to dance with a variety of partners helps you learn 30% faster, and it's fun!
  • Can I just show up or do I need to sign up in advance?
  • Please sign up at least 24 hours before class as class sizes are limited. You can sign up online (if it's more than 24 hours before class) or call us at 843-338-2870 to sign up by phone with your credit card.
  • I have some dance experience, do I have to sign up for Intro or can I sign up for a more advanced level?
  • Since class levels varies widely, we ask new students to take their first class with us at the Intro level. At class, your teacher can asses your level and recommend the right class placement for you. Just let your teacher know when you feel ready to move up.
  • How long should I take Smooth Operator before I'm ready to advance to the next level?
  • We recommend students take Smooth Operator 2-3 times (6-9 months) before enrolling in higher level classes. The first time you learn a figure, you will only be able to execute it at a very basic level. As you continue to practice, you'll deepen your understanding and develop more confidence, style, and technique. If you are wanting to progress more quickly, we recommend taking private lessons and attending practice dance parties along with your group classes; both will help turbo charge your dancing!
