Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

Basic questions

What should I wear to a dance lesson?

Gentlemen: Polo or dress shirt with dress pants. A leather sole is best and should allow you to “slide” a little.
Ladies: Dress pants or skirt with comfortable top or dress. A secure shoe that can’t fall off your foot is best.

Do I need a Partner to take dance lessons?

You do not need a partner. The majority of students who learn to dance do not have dance partners. In fact, you will learn actually faster if training with one of our professional instructors.

How do I become good dancer faster?

Good dancers are made, not born; each "natural" movement has taken training and practice. There are four main tools people use to learn to dance:
• private dance lessons
• group classes
• practice parties
• competitons
Students learn to dance by using some combination of these tools one or more times a week. The ideal way to learn is use all the tools available to you.

Can I perform or compete as a student at My Dance Hub?

What if I want to learn to dance just one dance?

We offer completely individualized approach to dance lessons. We often suggest for students to learn no more than 4-5 and no less than 2-3 dances at a time. Many dances actually do inter-relate to each other and it is not hard to become a more well rounded dancer with the same amount of time. Also, a group classes, such as Ballroom Cardio, will be a great way to pick up a variety of other dances while also getting a good workout.

Why is dancing such a great workout?

Dancing uses every part of the body without hurting your joints. It tones muscles, improves posture and balance, reduces stress and increases stamina.
Ballroom dancing is also a great MIND-BODY exercise because it requires one to memorize dance steps and sequences and dancing to the music hence stimulating the brain in a way that no other form of physical exercise does.
MOST IMPORTANTLY!!! Dancing is FUN and you will look forward to it!!
