What to Expect during Your First Ballroom Lesson
Sometimes, we spend more time dreaming about something than doing it. We may watch videos of dancers or sigh as a wedding couple glides across the floor, thinking, "If only I could dance like that..."
The good news is this: the desire to dance is the most important step of all! If you have always wanted to dance but are a little intimidated by the idea of going into a dance studio for the first time, we want to help you feel comfortable and give you an idea of what to expect.
Your dance instructors will ask you a few questions.
Whether you know a little bit of swing or you think you have two left feet, your dance instructors want to know where you are in terms of your dance background. They want to know your goals for dancing too: are you there to gain self-confidence, to wow your guests at your wedding, or to improve your overall health? The answers to these questions help them create the best dance experience for you.
They may introduce you to other students.
Getting to talk to other students in-person is a great way to learn more about the studio. Not only is it the first step towards making friends with new people, but it can give you an idea of how practice and persistence pays off, as students tell you how long they have been taking lessons and the benefits they've received from it.
They want to see you have fun.
Whatever your goals are, your dance instructors are there because they love dancing and they want you to love dancing too. Dance is meant to be playful, creative, and social, so your instructors want you to see that in your first lesson. They know that the best dancers are the ones having fun!
We hope that this helps you feel more confident when talking to dance studios and setting up your first lesson. You can check out our website to see what we offer to students of all levels!
