Dear Dance to Know:
In answer to your question about getting into social dance classes (Board Question #25993), a good way to go about doing this if you are a girl is to bring a guy who is not enrolled in the class to class with you the first day. If you both sign your add cards together the teacher will most likely let you add the class.
One of the biggest problems these dance classes have is that more girls want to take them than guys so the girls' sections fill up really quick (there are two sections in the social dance classes: girls and guys). Teachers want to keep the ratio of guys to girls approximately equal, so if you don't change the ratio, they will generally let you add.
If you are a guy and want to take the class, find a girl that really wants to add it and go to class with her. You could probably just go by yourself since they are usually looking for more guys to get into classes...that would better the ratio.
It has worked for me, it has worked for my brother, it has worked for my friends...go ahead and try it! (Of course, there are space issues also, but I haven't ever had a teacher decline me).
