The classes are taught by professional dance instructors. You don’t need to attend them all – just come to the ones that fit your schedule.  Everyday clothes are fine, but it’s best to avoid wearing sandals.  After each class, there will be performances by team members.  We will also tell you everything you need to know about the team.  On Saturday there is a team match – but don’t worry!  You will be dancing with an experienced team member and you will be competing in teams of multiple couples.  It’s fun!
