Are there any rules about social distancing and/or wearing masks at lessons?
There are no social distancing regulations. It is up to the individual to decide if they wear masks or not?
Because we are exercising, it is difficult to breathe effectively in masks, thus many may not be wearing them.
Do you need a partner?
We often have a few more ladies than men, as many dancing clubs find. We get around this by having many ladies capable of doing the man's part plus a lot of willing male (and female) helpers who come along to assist in the lessons.
Do you swap partners during lessons?
We tend to assign you a partner for the lesson if you don't come with your own. Each lesson you may tee up that same partner again or go with the lottery of a partner being assigned to you. You may ask for someone else if you do not get along for personal reasons.
Sometimes at the end of a lesson we may do dances that you can swap partners (polonaise). These are highly recommended but optional to be involved in. The ability to find how an experienced partner leads is an invaluable lesson.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothes are recommended. As long as it is appropriate to family viewing, you can lift your arms, and is tidy of appearance.
It is advised they can slide on the floor. Ladies especially do spins and turns and sticky running shoes end up hurting knee and ankle joints. Jandals and sandals are not recommended and high heels shoes prohibited as these do damage to the floor and other people's feet if they come in contact.
Are there any age limits on who can learn?
There are no age limits. We have taught from 6 years to 90. All learning at their own pace.
Do you have water available?
Yes, we have a filtered water machine with disposable cups or you may fill drink bottles from.
