Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need previous dance experience to attend?
Not at all. T3 starts with the very basics so no dance experience is needed. Generally we teach sections of beginning, intermediate, and advanced lessons each week. Feel free to jump between levels from week to week if you already have experience in a certain dance.
Is Tango the only dance that is taught?
Despite the name, Two to Tango offers instruction in most Smooth, Latin, and Rhythm dances. For those who don't yet speak "Ballroom", here is a non-comprehensive list of dances covered:
- Viennese Waltz
- Cha Cha
Do I need to come with a partner?
Not at all! We randomly pair people up in each lesson group and rotate frequently so people get to practice dancing with everyone. It's a great chance to meet new people... and if you do end up coming with a dance partner, we strongly encourage you to dance with others as well!
What if I can't come to T3 every week? Will I fall behind?
Since T3 teaches a different dance every week and 3 skill levels are offered you won't fall behind. While we love to see people come back every week, you're always welcome even if you aren't able to attend on a regular basis!
What should I wear to T3 on Sunday nights?
Wear something that is comfortable to dance in. Anything from sweats, jeans and a T-shirt, to skirts, dresses, dress shirts or suits! It can get pretty warm in the dance studio, so really warm clothes like sweaters are not recommended. Sometimes T3 has 'theme nights', so check your weekly T3 email for updates.
Do I need to have dance shoes?
No special shoes are needed. People may bring soft-soled non-marking shoes that haven't been worn outdoors. Otherwise, the majority of people just dance in their socks!
Do I need to be a student at UWEC to participate in T3?
In addition to UWEC students, T3 is also open to high school students, college students from other universities, UWEC faculty, and community members; however, membership fees do vary.
Does T3 offer private lessons or group lessons outside of Two to Tango?
While T3 is not generally available to give individual lessons, we often provide group dance lessons for events or organizations on campus or in the community. If you are planning an event on campus or for your organization that involves dance, please contact our president if you would like some of our T3 instructors to give a dance lesson at your event!
