Your First Class
Please Arrive 15 Minutes Early to Your First Class
We will have you fill in a registration card and par-q health questionnaire, just so that we are aware of any health conditions.
What should I wear to class?
Wear comfortable, cool fitness clothing with indoor non-marking runners. Layers work well so that you can stay cool as we work up a sweat!
What should I bring?
Bring a mat (yoga mat is fine) and a water bottle. You can also bring hand held weights starting about the 2nd week of class. If you tend to sweat a lot you might want to bring a small towel to the class.
How does the Bring A Friend Special Work?
Our Bring A Friend Offer is valid for new participants and their friends (or current participant's friends) to attend one class for 50% off during the first 2 weeks of our session (before Jan. 23rd for this winter session). The 50% off drop in rate applies to participants trying Dance Moves for the first time and must be paid in cash ($10). You can bring as many friends as you would like, so invite away! At the end of your drop-in class, talk to the instructor about applying your drop in rate as a credit for one of our package deals. The price per class goes down significantly the more classes you purchase. Our classes are progressive learning, so don't delay on attending your first class!
I have no dance background, will I be able to keep up in this class?
Dance Moves is designed for those who love to dance and would like to keep fit. No dance background is necessary, absolute beginners are welcomed. We teach the steps like a dance class without the music. We start the session very simplified with more repetition so new people can learn the dances and keep up. Past participants and experienced dancers don't mind it simpler to begin with because they can get a good workout. They know that over the session the dances progress to being nice enough to perform even though we don't perform. The instructors are also willing to give some extra help for a few minutes before or after the class if you are having difficulty with a step. It has been proven in Dance Moves classes that you can learn coordination and rhythm. So YES, everyone can do these classes!
