Here at Zig Zag Dance Factory we understand that not all of our pupils have the same amount of experience when it comes to our dance classes. Some of us may have been strutting our stuff for years now, whereas others may be just finding their feet on the dance floor!
With this in mind, we have put together a list of our most frequently asked questions below, to help any prospective new dancing partners learn as much as possible before even turning up to their first class. But don’t worry if your questions aren’t answered on this page – Our friendly team are on hand to answer any queries you may have, simply submit an enquiry on our website contact form here and one of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible.
Everyone is welcome from 4 to 104! We have a mixed age-range in our adult class and cater for all abilities. We specify that children need to be about 4 before they start to dance – when they are old enough to take instruction and know their left from their right! We have adult and children’s classes throughout the West Midlands.
Just normal casual clothes. For men, jeans or trousers and a t-shirt or shirt are fine, for ladies the same applies or a dress or skirt and top. Basically, anything goes but ballgowns and tiaras aren’t needed!
Anything goes but best advice is to wear a normal comfy shoe that stays on your foot if you kick your leg. Trainers tend to grip the floor too much and are a bit clumpy so a shoe that you can slide in is a bit better. Flip flops, boots and wellingtons aren’t great either (yes, we have had them) but no one will say anything to you no matter what you wear.
