To ensure students have an opportunity to practice what they have learned with one another, social outings will be scheduled. Students will also be informed of Dubuque Ballroom Club dance evenings to further their skills.
Regular street clothes are permissible, but allow yourself room to move comfortably and freely.
Bring an extra pair of clean shoes to wear on the dance floor. Street shoes are not allowed on the studio dance floor.
