A 2: You can use your own points to check in friends for events. Use the “Pay for a friend with my points” button on the Event Check In page.
Q: Are classes taught in Chinese or English?
A: It depends on the students. Most classes are taught mainly in Chinese, but if some students cannot speak Chinese, the teachers will also explain in English. All teachers can speak sufficient English to teach, so don’t worry if you cannot speak Chinese!
Q: Why should I learn to dance?
A: Everyone has different reasons to learn dance, of course, but generally people learn to dance because dancing makes them happy. When you begin to dance, you become more aware of your body and learn a new way to communicate with people. Dance is not just movement- it is also communication- between partners, performers and an audience, or even with oneself as a form of meditation. When you understand how to communicate with dance you can meet and form relationships with people not just in Taipei but throughout the world. Many people who start dancing with a one hour class once a week soon find themselves going to parties every week and eventually traveling internationally to attend dance events and meet international friends who have visited Taiwan. Dance can be something you do only in the studio if that’s what you want, or it can open the whole world to you.
Q: But I am too… (young, old, out of shape, introverted)…
A: If you enjoy music and learning new ways to move your body and interacting with people in a way that doesn’t require a lot of talking, you can learn to dance. Dancers are all different ages, body shapes, and personalities. If you genuinely desire to learn dance and can open your mind and body to be taught and interact with new people in a considerate and respectful way, don’t let fear talk you out of taking your first step into the studio. You can do it!
Q: Do I need any experience?
A: We regularly offer short-term courses for complete beginners. These classes are designed for people who have absolutely no experience in any form of dance. If you’ve never danced before, or it’s been a long time, or you haven’t danced that particular dance style before, these beginner classes are for you! We also have higher level classes which require that you have the level of experience to keep up with the curriculum.
Q: Do I need to bring a partner?
A: No! All dancers rotate in every regular class, so there is no need to bring a partner. If you wish to train only with a specific partner, we offer private training sessions as well.
Q: How much does dance training cost?
A: Regular classes are 1 Flow point/hour. You can see the various discounts we offer at Flow Points.
Q: How long do I have to learn before I can enjoy dancing socially (at parties)?
A: This answer is different for everyone. Some people are very brave and start going to parties after just a few classes. Others take a little longer to feel comfortable. It’s up to how much effort you put in and your level of self-confidence.
Q: What types of classes do you offer?
A1: Normal classes – we offer regular weekly solo and partnerwork classes in Salsa, Bachata, and Brazilian Zouk.
A2: Choreography courses – these courses last 4-10 weeks. You pay for the whole course upfront. We do not offer refunds for choreography courses.
A3: Thematic courses – We also occasionally offer courses in special topics like DJ training, high-heels training, etc. You pay for the whole course upfront, and we do not offer refunds.
Q: What should I wear to dance class?
A: Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely in. Don’t wear clothes that are too baggy or too tight. If you do not have dance shoes in the beginning, wear whatever shoes you feel comfortable in. It is better if the soles of your shoes are not rubber as rubber will make it harder to turn.
