How long is a piece of string?
It's hard to define how long you may attend intermediate because it's a level where you could repeate and the more you know, the more you're able to take more on. Intermediate is about the details.
As long as you're having fun
Open level mean that dances who are brand new or have danced before, can all attend this class due to the way it's stuctured. The instructor will give various options within the same class so you can go at the pace that suits you.
Casual Class Passes
$25 per class
You can rock up on the night and pay casually to the studio host.
Pro: it's casual and no commitment. Con: you don't get the best deal.
What footwear should I use?The general rule of thumb is to ensure that your shoes have swivelability (yes we made that word up however we know you already know what it means 😆). The second rule of thumb is to ensure your shoes don't easily come off. Thongs, slip ons and heels without straps are not recommended. Now if you have become a dance addict and want to take your dancing to the next level you could purchase a pair of Taygra dance shoes that can be worn inside and outside. Or you can buy dance shoes both flats and heels from Vivaz Dance and get yourself a cheeky 15% discount if you use the code ANGE15!
What should I wear to classes?For partner work classes such as Salsa and Bachata, we recommend you wear things that will help keep you cool and won't get caught while dancing. In the warmer months it may mean bringing a change of top because remember, whilst connecting with another person, you don't want to touch a top dripping with sweat. That could also mean being aware of the types of materials you wear and bringing a change of top in warmer months. For Brazilian Samba, Bollywood, heels, performance teams and any other high Energia classes we highly recommend activewear.
Do I need to bring my own partner? Do I have to swap partners in the partner classes?No, you do not need to bring your own partner. We change partners in the class and there are plenty of people who come on their own. If you do bring your own partner and don't wish to swap, just let the instructor know. There are many benefits in changing partners though we understand that at times, you need to get comfortable before changing partners.
Good Things to Know About us
We are an inclusive school. What does that mean? It means all of our partner work classes use language such as lead & follow, strong & flow. We don't mind how you identify or who you love. We're here to dance so choose whether you would like to lead, or to follow.
The thing we hear the most, from people & what they love about Energia studios, is our community. We pride ourselves on a positive, inclusive, warm community. Part of that has to do with ensuring you, our students have a safe space to be comfortable to make mistakes in class. Be comfortable to come to us with any concerns within the community.
On top of that, we love to host a good shindig. We aim to host 1 dance social event & 1 non dance social even a term.
