Courses FAQs

What dance level am I?

Our Adult Programming level progression is as follows:

Basics 1 (Series) | Basics 2 (Series) | Beginning (Drop-In or special courses) | Adv. Beg. (Drop-In or special courses) | Intermediate (Drop-In or special courses) | Advanced (Drop-In or special courses)

Level recommendations are generalizations and even lower-level class can be challenging if you’re returning to dance after some time away — your body and muscle-memory need time to acclimate! We recommend erring on the side of a lower level to enable you to ease into class and adapt to the insgtructor’s specific style.

 

That said, do not worry if you don’t pick the right level the first time around. Our instructors are accustomed to working with a broad range of dancers, even within a single level. We suggest speaking to your instructor to get feedback or talking with a studio staff member afterward. We are happy to work with you to find the right fit. Below is more information on each level:

 

Adult Series Classes :

 

Basics 1: if you have never before taken a class in the specific style, we suggest signing up for an Series Class at the Basics Level. These classes run for multiple weeks and provide cumulative training — and they’re a great way to start dancing!

Basics 2: if you completed a Basics 1 class, this is your next stop! You also can take Basics 2 if you have no experience in the specific style, but have solid experience in dance overall.

 

Drop-In or special courses:

All Levels: these are fun, physically-challenging classes that do NOT require prior training or the ability to pick up choreography. If you are looking to ease into the drop-in class experience, these are a great choice.

Beginner: most students will have completed a Basics class or two in the style OR have prior dance training. If you are returning to dance after some time away, this is a great option for you. (Most students will not be first-time dancers.)

Advanced Beginner: this is our most popular Drop-In or special courses level and appeals to a broad range of students. Most students will have 1+ year of recent training.

Intermediate & Advanced: these are rigorous classes, ideal for students with 3+ and 4+ years of recent training respectively. Advanced students are often pre-professional or professional dancers.

WHAT DO I WEAR TO CLASS?

We recommend students attend class with their hair pulled back and dressed in comfortable, form-fitting attire that does not restrict movements. For example, leotards, leggings, yoga pants, tank tops, athletic shorts, and well-fitted T-shirts all are great things to wear to class. Students should wear dance latin heels, appropriate to the latin dance style; shoes should be designated for dance class and never worn outside.

WHAT IS IF I MISS A CLASS?

In Series classes can make up a missed class in the same style, level, and type of class within the current session in which the student is enrolled.

Special courses, workshops, bootcamps or online classes can not make up classes because those have a experiation date.

CAN I SCHEDULE A PRIVATE LESSON?

We recommend private lessons as a supplement to (rather than a replacement for) series and drop-in classes. Private lessons tend to be most beneficial if you have some previous experience in dance and are looking to improve particular skills, enhance technique, or rehearse a piece for an audition or event.

You can sign up for a private class by our website too.

Linda and Aldo place special focus on respecting the follower’s body and personal space, while still stressing a strong foundation in leading and techniques to properly move the follower. It is a modern style of bachata, where it gives Linda and Aldo the opportunity to bring the different backgrounds in dance that they’ve learned and fuse it to make something much more interesting.
