What is your cancellation policy?2020-09-28T20:08:42-04:00

Your appointment times are very important to us here at M&N Dance, they are reserved especially for you. We understand that sometimes schedules
adjustments are necessary; therefore, we respectfully request at least 24 hours notice for cancellations.

STRICT AND ENFORCED 24 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY applies to any cancellations outside of that time.

Please understand that when you forget or cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, your instructor misses the opportunity to fill that lesson time. Since the lesson time is reserved for you specifically, we will charge one lesson from your package for any cancellation not made within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment.

Less than 24 hour notice will result in a charge of one private lesson. The cancellation policy allows us the time to inform other students of any availability, as well as keeping our schedule filled, thus better serving everyone. Thank you for viewing and supporting our policies criteria.

#2 BENEFITS OF DANCING

The benefits of ballroom dancing are easy to realize. Fun, exercise and meeting people are natural outcomes of social dancing. Dancing opens doors at social events and private functions.

People of all ages can learn to dance. Students from 15 to 80 have learned to dance in a fun and easy way. M&N DANCE offers a fun and comfortable learning environment. Many students have reported weight loss, increased flexibility, enhanced strength, better posture, increased self confidence, lowered blood pressure, increased energy and endurance, and a more positive mood. Some students have been referred by their physicians, or recommended to continue dancing due to the benefits they have experienced.

One of the great great benefits of learning to dance is that your dancing will last a lifetime. It’s always yours to continue and enjoy.

#3 DANCE FLOOR

Dance flooring standards have come a long way in recent years. Thanks to the continuing research from The Harkness Center in New York, the work
of biomechanics professor Luke Hopper, Dr. Boni Reitveld, The Physical Therapy Department of the University of Missouri, Jeffery A. Russel, and many others, medical science has established a link between dancing on unyielding surfaces and foot and ankle injury, and are studying the effects
on back injuries. Dancing on a dance specific sprung floor is essential to protect the growing bodies of dancers from lifelong injuries. While no movement activity is without risk, the type of surface you are moving on can help reduce the risks. Dance creates impact energy. If the energy generated by dance is returned to the body it can result in shin splints, fractures, and an array of knee problems, tendonitis, and ankle sprains. A dance floor that is both impact absorbent and provides lateral foot support is essential.

M&N Dance has a professional grade sprung floor. In fact, we have the same floor as the Dancing with the stars, the Dance Flex Floor. However,
even if you choose not to dance with us, the research is clear. Do not accept anything less than a professionally installed sprung floor for your dancing.

What is the fastest way to become a better dancer?2020-09-28T19:57:54-04:00

Dancing constantly is the fastest way for your body to get used to dancing and to become a great dancer! Aiming for at least twice a week to everyday, ideally!

How long does it take to learn to dance?2020-09-28T19:55:45-04:00

It depends on frequency and practice. The more often you do it, the faster you will learn.

What’s the difference between private and group lessons?2020-09-28T19:54:47-04:00

Group classes tend to be a larger group of people all learning from one teacher. These sizable dance lessons give you a little taste of different dance styles. It’s also a great way to socialize and meet new people. If you would like to get more in depth in a dance style or you are preparing for an event, the one-on-one private dance lessons are best for you. In a private lesson, you instructor can personalize the experience based on your dance levels, interest and goals. You can also learn at your own pace. If you are unsure about which route to take, talk to our instructors or try both to decide what fits you best.

How long is a session?2020-09-28T19:53:20-04:00

Each lesson is 45 minutes long.

Is there an age limit or range?2020-09-28T19:23:50-04:00

Not at all, we teach people of all ages.

What should I wear? Do I need dance shoes?2020-09-28T19:22:15-04:00

Like any event, there’s always the fear to be over/under dressed. For a dance class, it’s appropriate to wear something comfortable and easy to
move in. Ideally not jeans. As far as shoes go, make sure they’re clean and comfy. One of the most important assets in our dance studio is the Dance
Floor, which we carefully selected for our students best benefits, being the best in the Industry. Shoes with thin, smooth soles and short heels are
great for dancing. Open toes, flip-flops and rubber soles aren’t recommended.

Do I need a partner?2020-09-23T12:14:52-04:00

You don’t need a partner or any experience! One of our instructors will lead you every step of the way.

How do I get started?2020-09-23T12:10:43-04:00

The best start is our introductory private lesson which is complementary.

This lesson will help your teacher find out your rate of learning and retention, regardless of your dance level so he/she will present a program
that will fit your needs and wants to give you the look and feel you want for the dance floor.

You’ll get your own dance instructor at a time of your convenience, within business hours. This way your teacher can get you comfortable moving
across the floor and you will get more fun once you have a general understanding of the basics.
