FAQ’s

 

I’ve never danced before can I still come and try?

Of course! We suggest starting out with a Beginner or All Level class. We have a very welcoming friendly mode of instruction at Esquina. Two left feet are most definitely welcome. We do believe everyone can dance. We allow people to drop-in through out the month and believe that consistency is what makes the difference at the end of the day. You can pay for just one class or get the “new student” special so you can try it all and see what connect more with!

Do I need to bring someone with me for partner dances?

Nope! No partner necessary, come solo and meet new friends, we switch up partners during the partner dances so everyone gets to meet new people and learn from each other (however if you come with a partner and do not wish to change partner we will honor that too!)

What kind of shoes should I wear?

That will depend on the class you like to take. Generally partner dancing is good to have shoes that slide on the floor and that hold your foot in. Other classes like salsa aerobics, samba, belly dance and Afro-Cuban tend to be done barefooted or with dance sneakers.
