First Dance Success!
Here is an example of a wedding dance that I choreographed. This beautiful couple took 10 lessons and also practiced at home. They chose a sweet and popular song, “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran, and I incorporated some of the movements from the music video into their dance. Their guests loved it and the couple couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.
First Lesson Special!!
Learning to dance for your wedding doesn’t have to be a hassle. It’s recommended to start your lessons at least 3 months before the big day to give yourself time to learn, practice, and feel confident. The best way to begin is to try an introductory lesson! Come in for your first lesson, meet your instructor, and get started.
