Your Dream Wedding Dance

Don't let fear of dancing stop you from having the wedding dance of your dreams! 

Do We Need Lessons?

Not everyone does a wedding dance, but when planning a once in a lifetime event, you don't want to leave room for regret. Couples who "skip" the dance or "wing it" out of fear, usually end up regretting it.
Instead of looking at it as "having" to dance, think of your first dance as a chance to embark on a journey of learning something new with your new life partner.

What If I Can't Dance?

Most couples who come in for dance lessons don't have dance experience. Even if your partner took "dance, tap, and ballet" growing up, performing with a group is a lot different than partner dancing. Look, if you:
- have no dance experience.
- haven't picked a song.
- have no idea how to get your vision into your feet. Then I'm happy to help. No idea is too wacky.. So, if you're looking for fun wedding dance lessons with a Down-to-Earth instructor, then let's get started.

Who is it for?

Fun Loving Couples. You don't need to have any rhythm or any dance experience. I don't care how old you are because you're never too old to learn to dance. Gender doesn't matter. As long as you've agreed on a leader and a follower, then we can make magic. If you are a nice person then let's connect.

Because loving to dance should last a lifetime.

How Much Does it Cost?

Numbers only reveal one part of the story. It is important that we both value each others time. My website answers most questions and a quick phone call or email usually takes care of the rest. The first lesson is $200 for In-Person and $75 for remote. This lesson will provide you with enough information to decide if we're a good fit. Couples have enjoyed working with me not because I'm the cheapest but because I deliver 10 times the value they expect. There are plenty of studios offering $25 introductory specials ready to give you a $1,000 6 month contract.

Getting Started

First Lesson

To get started we’ll want to meet up to make sure we are a good match. You may book an Introductory lesson ($200 for In-Person and $75 for remote). If you decide to continue with a package, the payment made for the first lesson goes towards the total cost of the package.

If your Wedding is less than 14 days away you can book an Emergency Wedding Dance Lesson ($250). 

In-Person lessons are only offered Friday- Sunday at this time. There are occasional weeknights. Want to check availability before booking? Just email me at ro****************@gm***.com

Anything Cheaper?

Fully remote lessons are the lowerst priced option. Don't waste time sharing the dance floor with others, waiting your turn to hear your song, and learning different dance styles you'll never use. That wasted is wasted money. Think about your wedding cake. You could bake it yourself and hope it comes out right or you can invest in a cake that you know won't disappoint.

Cancellations Policy

Refunds/ Cancellations/ Rescheduling/ Emergencies:

Services are non refundable. The first appointment provides all clients with an opportunity to get to know if I am a capable of helping them reach their dance goals.

Rescheduling request must be received no less than 48 hours before the appointment otherwise the appointment will be subject to a cancellation fee. Please note I understand last minute events happen, but non emergency cancellations (stuck in traffic, stuck at work) result in my being charged by the studio in addition to my turning down other clients.

Major Emergencies! There are 2 types of major emergencies. One involves the ER. If you experience a major emergency that affects your ability to continue dancing together please let me know and I’ll see what can be worked out.
