It's best to prepare for your first dance with the same care you give to your invitations, gowns, catering, flowers and music. Start planning at least 6 months prior to your wedding date so that you can choose your special song, the type of dance you want to do, and take lessons before "wedding frenzy" sets in! But...if you find yourself in a last minute crunch...we're at your service!
Private lessons are best as you will be able to dance exclusively with your fiancée and work on choreography for your first song. If you would also like the classroom experience where you can meet other couples and learn the basics of a number of different dances, our COUPLES DANCE SAMPLER group classes are for you! Wedding couples often take a combination of both, but the choice is yours!
Tailor your lessons to your needs and schedule! Private lessons can be purchased singly ($85 or $90 per lesson), in discounted packages of 5, 10 or 20, or in combination with group classes.
Choose Your Music
If an orchestra will be playing your first song, we'll help you choose a recorded version to use during lessons and for practicing at home. Or, bring us a recording you like and we'll help you determine if it's "dance-able" and which dance best fits the music (i.e. Foxtrot? Waltz? Swing?)
We'll help you decide if a choreographed (planned) routine is best for you, or random patterns you choose during your lessons to be done spontaneously during your first dance.
Choosing shoes suitable for dancing is important if you want to move gracefully, so don't hesitate to discuss these matters with your instructor.
Your instructor will be happy to make suggestions regarding the music for your first dance, the music itinerary for your whole event, or even how to select the right orchestra or DeeJay for your wedding.
Instruction : Inquire at the studio via phone or at the front desk about having our qualified instructors come out and teach lessons at your wedding. Often times, the people you invite may need a little ice breaker lesson to get them away from the tables and out on the floor.
Performances : We'd be happy to send out a group of instructors to perform at your wedding also. It's a perfect form of entertainment for your guests.
