There's street parking and you can park behind the state farm building in the u.s. bank parking lot where there is plenty of parking available.

If you take public transportation it's only like 2 blocks from the max station.

WHAT TO WEAR:

You are going to be getting a good workout and will be sweating so wear something comfortable.

WHAT KIND OF SHOES TO WEAR:

Any shoe with a flat sole is good. For the ladies though when it comes to dancing heels is the norm (they help with your spinning). Avoid high heels if you're a beginner (try with 1 or 2 inches then go higher as you get better in your dancing).

Good shoes for dancing: dress shoes for guys (non-rubber sole if possible preferably leather sole), heels for women, boots (both men and women).
Bad shoes for dancing: sneakers, tennis shoes, flip flops, bowling shoes.

WATER: you might need it. Bring your own or you can buy bottled water there for 50c

ALSO BRING:

GUM: Remember you'll probably be dancing with someone so be prepared

SMILE: Nobody likes to dance with a poker face. Show your smile while dancing! Remember dancing is fun, dancing is happiness, be happy!
