Frequently Asked Questions

What clothes should I wear to classes?

You can wear anything comfortable that you can move around in. Layers or a change of shirt can be a good idea as it can get hot on the social dance floor!

What shoes should I wear to classes?

Flat shoes not only look cool, but they allow you to really move on the dance floor. We recommend flat shoes, especially when starting out for the safety of you and other dancers! Lightweight plimsolls are ideal and very inexpensive. Leather or suede-soled dance shoes are also a good option as they allow you to turn smoothly on the floor. Aris Allen canvas sneakers and Keds are popular options.

Do I need a partner?

We rotate partners throughout the class so you don’t need to bring your own!

When can I join?

Edinbop classes are drop-in so you can join at any time. There’s no need to pre-book and you can join us whenever suits you. The only exception is our Balboa Fundamentals classes, which are taught in 2 month blocks; see here for more details of when you can start.
