Q: I've never taken a dance class in my life, can I still come?
A: Of Course! We have dancers from every level attend our weekly lessons. Some are just starting out and others have been dancing for years. But, If this is your first time joining us, you'll want to make sure to come to the first lesson of the month. Every month we restart our beginners class from scratch so you don't need any prior dance experience to join in!
Q: Do I need a partner to come?
A: No! In fact most people don't come with a partner. During our lessons we rotate partners every few minutes so that everybody gets the chance to practice with a partner.
Q: Who teaches the classes?
A: Every month we feature different teachers so we can learn from a wide variety of styles.
Q: Do I need dance shoes to come?
A: While dance shoes make it easier to do some swing moves, they are not at all a requirement.
Q: Is it ok to just come watch and see if it's really for me?
A: Yes! But we promise you'll want to join in on the fun.
Q: Since this is a college based group what ages attend?
A: Even though Swing Cats is based out of U of A we have people from all ages and backgrounds who attend, from high school kids to senior citizens we welcome them all!
Q: How experienced do you need to be to take the intermediate classes?
A: Unless stated otherwise, most of the intermediate classes only require that you know how to do a swing out comfortably.
Q: If I don't want to take the lessons can I still show up for the open dancing afterwards?
A: Yes! And it's free!!!
