How long will it take me to get “good?”
There is no way we can predict how many classes you will need to take before you become proficient. Becoming a dancer is a life-long journey. Each dance genre is different. Each student is different. If you are new to dance we recommend starting with a class labeled “beginning” or “all levels.” You might have to shop around and try out different classes before finding one you really like.
