   Q2. My friends and I would like to register for a class but do not know if it�s already
           going to be full, or can we start a �private� class for ourselves?


     A. You may register you and your friends for the classes available. However should there be
          a situation where the classes are full before you can register all your friends, do email
          to enquiry@groove.com.sg to get help. If you have a group of more than 6 friends that
          are interested to sign up for class, you may request for  us to start the class just for you
          and you friends! Subject to availability and approval.
   Q3. I have no dance background at all. Can I join your courses?

     A. Our Beginner/Level 1 courses are catered for students with no dance background at all. For
          levels 2 or above, you must complete Level 1(or the preceding level) before going on to the
          next level.
back to top           
   Q4. I am not comfortable dancing in a group. Do you offer private classes?

     A. Group classes are an economical way to learn and make new friends. However, your
          learning capability may be different from your classmates. Private classes are an excellent
          way to learn fast and focus on specific aspects of your dance techniques. Our private
          classes rates may be found here. Please note that we only offer private classes on
          Saturdays & Sundays at our Waterloo branch only.

          Please e-mail us at enquiry@groove.com.sg for private classes rates.

   Q5. I have taken some Salsa/ partner-dance/ any other dance courses from other
          schools before. At which level of the courses should I continue with you?


     A. Every individual has a unique learning pace. It is very difficult for the instructor to gauge from
          a conversation/e-mail which level you belong to. It is best that you read our course
          description page and decide which level you belong to.

          For more assistance, come early before a class to discuss with the instructor; or, try out a
          single session before making your decision.
back to top           
   Q6. Are there any trial classes which I may attend before I decide to sign-up for an entire
          course?


     A. No, we do not offer trial classes on regular basis except on special occasions throughout
          the year (such as Anniversary of the School and other Marketing Campaigns).

 Q9. What must I wear?

     A. You should wear as follow:

          For Salsa Beginners Level 1 & 2, Ladies/ Men's Styling, Merengue, Street Cha-Cha &
          Bachata:

            • If you are heading to the studio after work, office gear will suffice.
            • If you are heading to the studio from home, gym gear or casual clothes are acceptable.
            • Men: No slippers/flip-flops. Shoes are preferred.
            • Ladies: No slippers/flip-flops/slip-ons. Heels with ankle support are preferred.

          For Salsa Intermediate; Advance & Men’s Styling:
          Same as above, but also avoid track shoes with soles that provide a lot of friction. Ladies
          may want to consider investing in a pair of dance heels with good ankle support and suede
          soles. Refer to this link to purchase your shoes.

          For Cardio Salsa, Latin Jam, Reggaeton, Hip-Hop:
            • Gym gear.
            • Dance sneakers and jazz shoes are acceptable for Cardio Salsa/ Latin Jam/ Reggaeton               and Hip-Hop classes.
            • Bring your own hand towel/ small towel to wipe away perspiration.

          Exotic Dance & Pole Dance:
            • Gym gear, preferably tight-fitting ones to allow good view of muscle movements.
            • For higher levels of Exotic Dance, we do NOT encourage students to use short as there
              will be a lot of floorwork and this requires students to be on their knees for a fair bit.
              Alternatively, you may also wish to use knee guards.

          Lap Dance:
            • Gym gear, preferably tight-fitting ones to view the muscle movements.
            • Do bring along a pair of heels with ankle straps.
            • According to the instructors’ specifications, you may be asked to bring a button down
              long-sleeved shirt to incorporate stripping into the dance lesson. Ask your instructor on
              the first day of class if your Lap Dance Course requires this (usually on the 2nd – 4th
              lesson only).

          Pole Dance:
            • For Pole Dancing, opt for sports Tank or crop top & shorts (a MUST!). Avoid 3-quarter
              pants or sleeves because the pole adheres better to bare skin. In practicing advance
              pole stunts such as inverts, besides strength & technique, we largely require friction
              between skin and pole to stay in the position. Hence we need to wear clothes that expose
              some skin.

          Belly Dance:
            • Gym gear, preferably tight-fitting ones to view the muscle movements.
            • No footwear is required.
            • For levels 1, no Belly Dance Hip Scarf is required. Check with your instructor of the first
              day of class if you want to purchase hip-scarves.

          Please note to bring along this completed copy of this registration form with you on your
          first day at our studio (only applicable for first visits to the studio).

 Q10. What happens if I cannot come for one of the classes during the course?

     A. When we publish our dance courses for registration, it is assumed that our students are
          able to commit to all dates of every class. You may check the entire course schedule
          through this link. We also plan our classes for the duration of a 4-8 week period only. By
          doing so, we trust students are able to commit easily and plan their time ore effectively.

          If you are still unable to attend any of your classes due to unexpected workload or change
          in personal plans, you may wish to see if there is a class of the same category, level and
          price which you may attend through this link. All you have to do is use our Groovy Search
          button found on the calendar page here. You will see this page:

Groovy Search

          a) Select month and year.
          b) Select course code (refer to legend on calendar).
          c) Select lesson number.
          d) Double-click on search.


          The calendar will then display all classes which fit your search criteria. You may wish to
          go for this replacement class (terms & conditions apply).

          Please note that you may only exercise this option if the following terms and conditions
          are met:

               • Your dance card must not have expired.
               • Most importantly, once you have made your decision, call us on the day of the class to
                  check if class is on.
               • You must communicate your intention to join the replacement class (if any) before the
               commencement date of the class and before the expiry of your dance card.
               • This action is subject to the management’s approval.
               • There will be no reminders from the management.
               • Please note that there is no guarantee.

 Q14. Your website shows classes offered by both Groove Dance School and DanceFusion.           I am unsure of the registration process.

     A. Both Groove Dance School & DanceFusion occupy the same studio premise (this
          is true for the Seah street branch only). Groove Dance School specializes in Salsa, Street
          Cha-Cha
, Bachata, Merengue, Exotic Dance, Lap Dance, Pole Dance and Pole Groove.
          DanceFusion on the other hand, specializes in Hip-hop, MTV Groove and others.

 Q15. Are there any fees (other than the course fee) that I should be aware about?

     A. To enjoy preferential rates, you may wish to join our membership scheme at only $20/ per
          annum. You will then enjoy the member’s price listed for all our courses during the term of
          your membership.

          Membership takes effect after 24 hours of payment of membership fee. Hence, if you would
          like to enjoy members' rates for your courses, do make pre-payment for your annual
          membership fee and dance course. If payment is made on date of course, non-members'
          rates apply.

          If you are not a member, you will have to pay the non-member’s rate. (Please note that we
          only introduced the membership system in May 2008 to reward members. This would
          mean that even if you have taken classes with us before May 2008, you do not
          automatically qualify as a member).

          As specified before, Groove Dance School shares its premise with our partners
          DanceFusion & Acro Polates who have different operations system. For courses with
          them, do check with them separately.

          In short, to enjoy members’ rates for any course offered by Groove Dance School, a $20/
          annum membership fee will have to be paid by the student.
          To join any dance course offered by our partners, your Groove membership fee will not
          automatically entitle you to privileges offered by them. That said, we encourage you to
          inform our partners that you are members of Groove Dance School just in case they
          have something in store for you!
