Frequently Asked Questions:

Can anyone learn to dance?

YES! It's very easy to get started using our system. All of our courses are leveled and cumulative which means we've set up the quickest and easiest path for you to succeed. Start with our FREE introductory course and progress through each level at your own pace.

How long does it take to learn to dance? 

You'll be up and dancing the first day!  Your journey through can be a few months all the way to years and even a lifetime if you are passionate about it. There is always something new to learn.

How long does it usually take to go through a course?  

You can go through a course in a few hours. However, it will take many repetitions to truly find success. Like any physical skill, mastery takes time. Be patient and forgiving to yourself. Practice and learn at your own pace.

Here is a good model for success:
  • Comfortable in a few days
  • Competent in a few weeks 
  • Confident in a few months
  • Masterful in a few years  

I tried learning to dance from Youtube but I couldn't get it. What makes your courses any better?

This is the most common problem with learning to dance from random individual videos from places like Youtube. Those videos have their value for sure. However, they don't help you in providing appropriate information for your level of understanding and experience. That is why our courses are cumulative. We make sure to provide you with what you need to grow to the next step.

What happens if I can't understand or I keep having trouble while taking your courses?

If you progress too early through the courses you might struggle with the concepts and patterns. We suggest you go back to earlier courses and take your time becoming more efficient before progressing to harder courses. If you are still having trouble, reach out to us. We do virtual private lessons all the time. We can help you through the challenging parts.
