Information For New Students
How do I register?
To register, just show up! About 10 minutes early helps us get everyone in, but we will register you right there at the door (It is okay to join any class as late as the 2nd meeting.) Check or cash is fine. Sorry, we can't accept credit cards at the class locations, although, if that is your preferred form of payment, we can take one in advance (for class series) over the phone.
What should I wear?
Some students come straight from work so are quite dressed-up. Others go home and change into jeans. Anything is O.K., but do wear shoes that you are comfortable dancing in. 'Backless' shoes are not a good idea, but any shoe that you can slide a little in (not too sticky) is fine.
Do I need a partner?
No! If you come by yourself we "line you up" and give you partners, rotating you, so that you dance with many different partners during the class. If you come with a partner, you can either stay together, or rotate, the choice is yours.
What is a Series Card?
The purchase of a Series Card for $75.00 entitles you to ...
- A $15.00 discount per person. This means you get one class free!
- Admission to another class during the week for only $8.00 (when offered) - for extra practice and fun! This applies only to the same category as the card, i.e. Ballroom to additional Ballroom, Swing to the same style of Swing.
- Free make-ups when there is an alternate class offered ... so long as make-ups are made during the series you are registered in.
Series cards are a great choice if you know you'll be able to attend the entire series (note that they are good only for the duration of the series they were purchased in.) They are non-transferable and non-refundable, except in extreme situations (which we understand do occasionally arise), and then any classes taken on the card will be back-charged at $15 each, plus a $10 handling fee--but we'll start you over with a new card.
