No – quite the opposite! Because there are so many different dances (and new dances emerge virtually every month) there is a tremendous variety of dances. In Sequence dancing the dancers progress the sequence in an anti-clockwise manner around the floor. As everyone is doing the same sequence the requirement for floor craft (and the level of concentration required to avoid collisions!) is reduced. Dancers do not need to choreograph their own sequence and as everyone is doing the same set sequence it is relatively easy to follow.
No! You can come along by yourself and get paired up with other students or with the teacher.
Regular dancers tend to wear specialist dance shoes, but for beginners this is not necessary. Just make sure you wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to stretch and move easily. Dance shoes are better than rubber soled as they will help you glide across the floor better.
