"My wife and I are taking lessons with Trish and are extremely pleased with our progress as a dance couple. Her passion for dance and very broad knowledge and skill level are evident from Day 1. She provides very constructive input, always with positive encouragement and a smile!. We conclude each session wanting more and looking forward to the next. We highly recommend taking lessons with Trish. Regardless of your background, level, or experience, your dancing will improve and you'll have a lot of fun along the way. Trust me on this!"

"I suggested my daughter sign us up for dance lessons at Arthur Murray or Fred Astaire. It turns out they were difficult to get a hold of and we wound up signed up for lessons with Patricia at Ballroom Expression. As someone who is not a dancer I was a little worried that the father/daughter dance would not go off without a hitch. Patricia quickly put those concerns at ease. In just five lessons my daughter and I found ourselves dancing across the floor with ease and enjoying ourselves. At our most recent lesson Patricia took a video of my daughter and I dancing to the song we will dance to at her wedding. When we shared it with my wife later that day she was so moved that she insisted we sign up for lessons as well. Patricia is easy to work with, and she breaks things down into manageable pieces so that non-dancers are able to understand. I have great confidence that the dance with my daughter will be a show stopper - all thanks to Patricia!"

"Trish was absolutely amazing and choreographed a perfect first dance for us! My husband wanted it to look natural, while I wanted to have fun moves. She came up with something that we both loved and went perfectly with our song! We really enjoyed going to each of our classes, looking forward to what we were going to learn next. We are so grateful we decided to take lessons with Ballroom Expression, and have a dance that we will remember forever."

Wedding Choreography

Couples who choose to work with Ballroom Expression learn high-quality, and original choreography customized to fit their wedding song.

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.
