    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long before the wedding should we start?

    Depending on your goals, it's best to give yourself at least 2-3 months lead time.  The more you practice the better you'll be, plus if you wait until the last minute you may cause yourself undue stress trying to squeeze your lessons in during an already hectic time.  Keep in mind, your lessons can be an oasis where you get to really relax and have fun amidst the wedding preparations - so no matter when you start, I'll make sure to help you get the most out of it.

    How many lessons will it take?

    Again, this depends on your goals. Most couples start with a 5 lesson package.  Everyone learns at a different rate, but 5 lessons is at least enough to look poised, learn a few basic moves and to have an elegant entrance and exit.

    How often should we come?

    To have an optimal learning experience I recommend no less than once per week.  2 to 3 lessons per week will accelerate your learning process because you'll gain momentum and have less time to forget between lessons.  That's not realistic for some people's schedule (or budget) so we'll work out a schedule that optimizes your time + budget + enjoyment.

    Can we learn a choreographed number?

    Certainly, I'd like nothing more than to make you and your beloved stars of Youtube!  This is a wonderful way to connect and bond with your partner and have a blast!  I'll work with you to select a song (or songs) that matches your personal style, then choreograph a routine that shows off your unique personalities.  (Requires a minimum of 10 lessons)

    What should we wear to our lessons?

    Wear comfortable shoes that fit well and won't slide off (no mules or flip-flops). You can wear regular street clothes but make sure you can move around comfortably in them.




    Your first dance is the ultimate symbol of your union.

      Hi Mary,


    Sam and I wanted to pass along the words that the dance went REALLY REALLY well last weekend at our wedding :) Everything thing went really well actually at the wedding, it was all just wonderful!

    Karen and MicheleDear Mary,

    I just wanted to say thank you, thank you for adding so much to our wedding!   Learning to dance with you before our big day not only amazed our guests, but gave us a new, fun activity to do together for the rest of our lives.  I  think my husband was a little cautious to begin with, but after the first  lesson he realized how much he was enjoying himself.  I've always loved to  dance and am grateful to you for teaching us how to glide across the floor together! Thanks again!




    The benefits of learning to dance together go far beyond looking good on your wedding day (though that's pretty important!)  You will learn a skill that you'll enjoy for the rest of your lives together. You'll also have a new activity that helps you connect, communicate and have fun. Let's face it, it's sexy too! 

    Lindsey and Casey


    Thanks so much -- I wanted to make sure you were included on the memories as you really helped Casey and I not only with the dance but companionship as a whole. We really enjoyed working with you. By the way the dance went amazing - everyone was very impressed with our moves. The dance was perfectly and in love!   

     - Lindsey


    Think how elegent your wedding will be if the whole wedding party dances and looks good! Group classes for the entire wedding party are a great way to say thank you, and help you bond as a group. Taking a few dance classes together before the wedding extends the festivities, and everyone has even more fun dancing at your reception.  You can even have a choreographed routine for all your bridesmaids and groomsmen - imagine what a great video that would make!


     Hi Mary: Allison and MIke
    Just wanted you to know that our wedding was wonderful and our dance, as you can see from the pictures, was a huge success. Everyone had fun along with us.  I have to say it was the best night of my life and we are very happy to be married. Thanks so much for your help.   Take care!
