Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear for dance classes in Humphreys?
Anything that you are comfortable to move in. Some ladies like to wear dresses and skirts to dance others prefer pants. As long as you feel comfortable thats what matters. Shoes are something that should be considered. Since you will be doing turning and spinning shoes with rubber soles are not a good idea, try to avoid sneakers. For the guys a leather soled shoe is a good place to start and for the ladies a low heeled shoe with a supported back is a good idea, nothing like a thong or sling-back which will slip around. You can purchase proper dance shoes when you are ready at the studio for your convenience.

Do I need a partner for dance lessons?
Absolutely not. Many people dance as singles and we try to even out the numbers in our classes between couples and singles and fill in gaps as best we can with helpers and teachers. Even if you attend without a partner, you will not feel left out or be dancing alone.
Do I need to book in advance for dance classes?
For our Medal/Technique, Salsa & Tango courses we do require booking in advance so please just send an email or give us a call to book these ones. Our social classes for Ballroom/Latin & New Vogue do not require booking, just arrive 10 mins early to complete a very basic enrolment form.
Do I need any dance experience?
Absolutely not. For our social beginners classes no dance experience of any kind is needed. To enter our medal courses, we do like our students to have completed at least to level 1 beginners as we spend a great deal of time on technique and not so much time on steps in these courses. The aim of our Social Beginners Dance Classes is to teach you all the basics to the most popular Ballroom & Latin Dances and get you out and about dancing in Perth's Social Dance Scene.
What dances will I learn?
In our Social Beginners level 1, 2, 3 & 4 and our Intermediate dance classes we teach:
Cha Cha Cha
We also have dedicated classes for West Coast Swing, Argentine Tango, New Vogue & Salsa Dance so please contact us for more information.
