FAQs

  • What to wear in a Bachata dance class?

    Smart casual clothing and comfortable shoes. We recommend small heel shoes for the ladies and leather sole shoes for the gentlemen. Please no stilettos, boots or trainers with a strong grip.

  • Do I need a partner to join a course?

    No, we frequently rotate partners throughout the class to ensure all leading and following techniques are working well.

  • I come with a partner, can we stay dancing together and not rotate with the others?

    I come with a partner, can we stay dancing together and not rotate with the others? We rotate partners in our classes as we have found that dancing with different people teaches better leading and following skills which ultimately makes dancing with our won partner (if you have one) a better and more pleasurable experience.
