Wedding Dance Questions
How many lessons will it take to learn a wedding dance?
This is highly variable. The number of lessons will depend on:
1) How much time you will have to practice on your own.
2) How complicated or intricate you envision your showcase dance to be.
3) How quickly you are able to feel comfortable with the dance steps.
Some wedding couples decide to have a few extra lessons just before their wedding day. Others are fine with weekly lessons and feel ready to go when the day arrives.

How often should we come to wedding dance classes?
The fewer breaks between dance lessons you have, the less the lesson will be dedicated to reviewing material and the more the lesson can focus on creating new choreography and working on your technique and understanding.
On average couples tend to take one lesson a week, depending on how much time they have before their wedding. This doesn’t leave a big enough gap to forget what was learned during the lesson as well as more than enough time to practice on their own.
When is the best time to prepare our wedding first dance?
To avoid feeling rushed before the big day, it’s best to plan your wedding dance lessons about three months in advance. Some couple like to start even earlier to master more difficult routines.
I feel comfortable learning to dance, but my fiancé/fiancée is less certain. Will we be able to learn something in spite of the differences in our confidence levels or abilities?
We make absolutely certain the lessons for your wedding first dance are enjoyable and without any unrealistic expectations. We are experienced in creating wedding dance choreography that is suitable for both you and your partner. You will take pride in the dance you learn and will want to show it off to your guests!
