First Dance FAQs

What should we wear for our private lessons?

Be comfortable! Come in clothing that you can easily move in. If you are wearing special shoes for the wedding dance, we suggest you bring them to practice in.

Do we need to have a song picked out?

No, of course not! We can help with that too! If you do have a song picked out, we will help you determine what style of dance will work best for what you've selected. 

Will this be choreographed? 

Our priority is to teach you to dance with each other, which involves some lead and follow. But, we totally understand that your objective may be to wow your guests and we are all for that! We  will ensure that your moves will be arranged so that you can remember what you need to do on the dance floor. 

Will you help us recreate something we saw on a video? 

We'd rather create something spectacular with you that will be viral-worthy, if that's what you're going for. Please keep in mind that our instructors are unable to completely copy from other sources. 

What if five lessons isn't enough?

We have been doing this for quite a long time, and we find that the majority of our couples feel very prepared by the end of their fifth lesson. However, you can always add additional sessions as needed, or take advantage of our guided practice sessions for additional practice time.
