No, you don’t need a partner. The best way to learn without a partner is in private, one on one lessons with an instructor. When you are in group classes we frequently rotate partners and also have teachers to substitute in if there are missing men or women.

Dress casually and comfortably. Wear comfortable shoes that you expect to dance in; preferably not tennis shoes or shoes with rubber soles because they grip the floor and you can’t move as well.

No, however we do recommend frequently changing partners in group classes. It brings your focus more on yourself, you learn how to lead and follow better and improves your dancing at a much faster pace. Most of us care deeply about our partners and many of us concern ourselves more with them than with what we need to do to improve our own dancing. Lastly, by changing partners we’ve realized that our atmosphere has become a warmer and friendlier place. It gives you the chance to meet other wonderful people and brings a greater sense of community.

It varies from person to person. Typically it takes three to six months to get comfortable with a few dances.

No. Packages can be purchased in a variety of sizes. However there is a benefit to purchasing a larger package; the larger the package the larger the discount you receive for your lessons. Discounts range from 5% to 20% depending on the size of the package.

FUN: Although your commitment to learn to dance will demand concentration, dedication and time, you will be constantly surrounded by artistic, cheerful people who will make your instruction at DANCEnergy a most pleasurable and rewarding experience.

FRIENDSHIPS: Beyond instruction, dance opens a wide spectrum of social settings in which friendships are forged and dreams come true. Regular scheduled DANCEnergy practice dance parties, local, regional and national competitions and fun nights out on the town provide dancers with a full social calendar.

CONFIDENCE: Dancers possess an aura of self-confidence and an ability to enjoy themselves more in public settings. Their entire mental outlook takes on a renewed sense of creativity, motivation and energy.

CREATIVITY: Dance provides an emotional outlet in which a person can truly reflect his or her feelings through body movement. The ability to dance is present in everyone, it only needs to be cultivated through sound instruction methods. Then you’re on your own, expressing yourself with passion and flair.

HEALTH: Dancing helps the body’s circulatory system as it makes your heart pump blood faster. Dancing encourages weight control and overall fitness through calorie burn off. The constant movement and muscle extension during dance sessions also provides a pleasing, mild exercise most people long for but rarely achieve, especially in such pleasant circumstances.

MENTAL HEALTH: It has now been proven scientifically that exercise while learning something new is great for the brain. Here is a link to a video of Dr. Daniel Amen talking about how exercise and dancing is great for the mind. Another Good Reason to Dance
