Over the years, the majority of people coming to our studio for dance lessons have been couples preparing for the first dance at their wedding. At Dancing Together We've worked with all levels of students...all with different visions of what they want for their first dance. So, we've gotten pretty good at this.
Give us a call today to get started.
We'll be happy to answer any questions you might have about dance
lessons and preparing for your first dance.

Things to know before your first lesson...
On your first lesson, your instructor will review your choice of song with you help you decide on the most appropriate style of dance, and you'll get started learning your dance right away! If you haven't yet decided on a song, your instructor can help you with this too. Bring along some of your favorite options, and you can get a sample of the styles of dance that would be appropriate for each.
It's not necessary to wear your wedding shoes to your first few dance lessons. It's best to start off with shoes that you're very comfortable in. (especialy for the ladies) Learning to dance can be challenging enough without throwing in difficult shoes. Once you and your partner are starting to get really comfortable dancing together - and you're through stepping on each others toes - then you can add the wedding shoes to the equation.)
Most couples take between 5 and 15 lessons to prepare for their first dance. Everyone learns differently, and holds different ideas of the perfect outcome. After your first lesson, your instructor can give you a better idea of how many lessons it will take for you to reach a comfortable level with the first dance that you're shooting for.
It's preferable to begin your lessons at least 2 to 3 months before the wedding. Give yourself plenty of time, so that you can relax and enjoy your lessons. The last couple of weeks before the wedding, when things are beginning to get a little hectic, you'll be glad that you've learned your dance and are ready to go! (However, if you've waited until the last minute, crash courses are available!) Even a few dance lessons before the wedding will serve to help both bride and groom feel more relaxed and confident when they step out onto the dance floor.
