Dance Class FAQ

Q: Can anyone attend Spicy Hen classes?
A: YES, we welcome everyone! All of Spicy Hen’s dance classes are held with professional dance instructors with many years of experience. Our lessons do not require previous knowledge of dancing. Spicy Hen’s dance instructors will cater to your needs to ensure your group has FUN and a good LAUGH!

 

Q: Are your lessons private? Are spectators allowed?
A: At your dance lesson it will just be your group. So if there are members who aren’t taking part in the class, they can watch – you can encourage them to be your troupe’s official photographer!

 

Q: How much do sessions cost?
A: Our private dance classes start from £22 per person all inclusive.

 

Q: What shoes and clothes shall I wear for the class?
A: You should wear nothing restricted as it can hinder your dancing. However, you do need clothes that you can move and dance around in. Here are our suggestions :

Salsa, Samba, Dirty Dancing
Salsa, samba and dirty dancing can be danced in flat shoes, high heels, ballet pumps because it is the energy and the upbeat music that keeps you dancing. Regarding clothing, whatever you fancy wearing on your night out is suitable, we would suggest that you wear a t-shirt or vest top as with a that shaking and sexy dancing, you will be feeling the Latin heat. Lots of our ladies love coming to the dance sessions in leotards and leggings.

Street Dancing , Zumba
For these classes trainers are a good option. Ballet pumps work as long as they have a good cushioned sole. We do warn you that you will feel energised after your dancing session and are likely to break a sweat. We recommend wearing layers.

Belly Dancing
You will need to wear something you can move freely in. Lightweight workout clothes, or a leotard and tights are fine. You aren’t expected to be in a full-blown costume. If you have some nifty ethnic jewellery or other accessories that you enjoy, go ahead and wear them. They can help put you (and the rest of the class) in a pleasant mood. It is also a good idea to have some kind of scarf or similar to wear around your hips. We would recommend to wear a shoe that doesn’t stick to the floor too much (so trainers generally don’t work too well).

80’s Fame Dancing
We recommend you wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Get your fluorescent legwarmers, leggings, sweat bands and neon outfits ready for this thrilling hen dance activity.

Burlesque
We want you to feel comfortable, therefore wear clothes that are comfy and allow you to move freely. We would recommend that you wear clothes that will make you feel fabulous and sexy. It is compulsory to bring a feathered boa with you for the lesson. to  For example:

  • A dressy top or corset,
  • A loose leggings, tights, short, skirts, fishnets,
  • Small heeled shoes (3“ heel is the best for beginners) or trainers,
  • Long gloves.

Flamenco
Please try to wear a top that gives your arms plenty of unrestricted movement. Best not to wear very long trousers as you will be doing lots of tapping and stamping. As tapping is extremely important part of the dance, we suggest that your footwear is solid-soled so it makes distinctive tapping noise. Also make sure that your shoe has a smooth sole that will enable you to turn easily.

Cheerleading
Ideally for cheerleading you should wear shorts. The shorts you wear should be quite fitted or you can also wear tracksuit bottoms that aren’t too baggy. You should also need to wear a top that is not baggy and trainers, which are generally light weight and easy to move around in.

 

Q: Can I make the payment for the class on the day to the teacher?
A: NO, you cannot. All payments must be made FOUR weeks before your class. Unfortunately we can’t take any payments on the day. All payments need to be processed through the office and we can’t allow our teachers to take payments.

 

Q: Can we enjoy a drink before or after the dance class at the venue?
A: Yes, you can. Our venues have several bars and your group is welcome to enjoy a drink in the bar before or after the lesson.

 

Q: Can I take my own drinks/alcohol to the venue?
A: All our venues are private function rooms of bars, so you will not be able to take your own alcohol. However, there will be plenty of opportunities to purchase drinks at the venue.
