FAQ for Classes

  • How do I register/prepare for classes? 
    • Pre-registration is required for all outdoor classes. You can sign up on our website through WellnessLiving. It’s on a first come, first serve basis.
    • In addition to your reservation, you must also sign our new Health and Safety Code of Conduct, which you can find here.
    • BOTH pre-registration AND the signed Health Code must be done. You only need to sign the Health Code once. Note once booked, there are no refunds.
  • What is Wellness Living?
    • This is the software we’re using for class management. You must have a profile to register. If you are not sure if you have an account, you can create one or check your credentials by logging in here
  • Are classes solo? For partners? Virtual?
    •  The classes will have either SOLO, PARTNER, or VIRTUAL in the title.
    • If it’s SOLO (ex. Samba, Salsa Aerobics,) max capacity of 10 in the class.
    • UPDATE: For  partner classes, NO PARTNER IS NEEDED.  If you come with partner  you are not required to rotate. Partner rotation is at-will. Partners may switch only by agreement by all dancers. Max capacity is 20, with 10 partners total.
    • If it’s VIRTUAL, that means the class will be via Zoom, and you will be emailed a link to log in.
    • You can look at the schedule here for all classes.
  • Can I register my partner?  
    • Your partner need to have their own reservation in Wellness.  Just like your reservation, they book a spot separately under their Wellness Living account. You  may however, pay for their class or membership and it can be transfer to your partner. Ask the front desk for assistance on that.
  • Can I purchase at the door? 
    • You may,  however since space is limited, we recommend you advance  registration to ensure your spot.  If there are still spots available close to class time, you may sign up on our website through your mobile or with our front desk personnel.
  • What are the class prices?
    • The prices and options are the following:
    • 1 Drop in Single Class $18.50 non-member/$15.50 member (expiration 1 month from the sale date, including Free Intro Class).
    • 4 Class Session $61.80 non-member/$51.50 member (expiration 2 months from the sale date).
    • 10 Class Session $103 non-member/$92.70 member (expiration 2 months from the sale date).
  • Oh no, the class is full! Is there a waitlist? How does it work?
    • Yes! Still sign up through Wellness Living and there is an option to be put on the Wait list. If a spot opens up, you will be immediately notified. 
    • In order to do a Waitlist booking, you MUST choose a purchase option if you do NOT already have an existing pass/session credit. This means you will be charged if you do not have an existing pass/session already.
    • If you have an existing pass (ex. 4 class pass), are put on a waitlist, and do NOT get into the class, your session is credited back to your Wellness account. You can use it for another class.
    • If you are doing 1 drop-in session or new 4 class pass, you will be charged even if put on the wait list. However, if you do not get into the class, the session will be credited back to your Wellness account (not refunded). You are free to book another class from your Wellness account. If you do not plan on using that session after all, please email info@esquinatango.org for a refund.
