Frequently Asked Questions

We have decided to make an online frequently asked questions (FAQ) section to provide you with as much information as possible. The idea is simply a list of common questions with their answers.

What if I have two left feet?

So many people are sadly put off dancing through a fear of having two left feet or a lack of rhythm and not wanting to feel silly, but fear not, at Anglo Dance we really look after those who may struggle to pick up the steps and teach with such passion and enthusiasm that we wouldn’t let anybody look or feel silly. We believe with a little patience, a little determination and a lot of fun we can teach anybody to dance! Ballroom and Latin also improves everybody’s sense of rhythm as each dance has a set structure to it.

What shoes can I wear?

Any comfortable, light shoe is ideal to start with for Ballroom and Latin lessons. We Prefer you not to wear sling backs, flip flops, boots or anything with steel tips as they damage our maple sprung dance floors.
Trainers or Jazz Pumps are perfect for Hip Hop, and Street Dance or Fitness and Zumba Classes.
Bare feet or ballet slippers are ideal for all Ballet classes.

Do I need a partner?

Come with or without a partner to any absolute beginners Ballroom and Latin dance class. Monday 8:20pm New Basic Ballroom and Latin class is especially good if you do not have a dance partner!
Once you have advanced to an improver level then you will need a partner. Do let us know if you are looking for a partner to attend an improver class as we may be able to help you.
For Street Dance, Ballet & Dancercise classes be brave, come on your own or with friends.

What do I wear?

Smart/casual clothes that you won’t get too hot in are great for any Ballroom and Latin classes.
Sportswear or leggings and a t-shirt are perfect for Hip Hop, Street, Ballet, Keep fit and Zumba classes.

Will I get hot?

Yes, as dancing is such great exercise for your whole body you may get a little warm during our classes. Please make sure you arrive feeling fresh and wearing light clothing.

For Ballet, Disco, Street Dance and Keep fit classes we recommend bringing a drink and wearing an extra layer that you can take off after a warm up.
