Preparing for a wedding can be a very stressful time with so many details to attend to. If you are planning on a 'first dance' as husband and wife and would like to be able to do something other than the 'high school shuffle,' taking a few dance lessons can be fun and make you feel confident on the Big Day.
What I offer is a package of four 1-hour private lessons to learn whatever dance is appropriate for the song of your choice. (If you have not chosen a song, I have a list of appropriate, danceable songs and would be happy to forward it to you upon request.) The cost is $145, which is a savings of $15 off my regular price for four lessons. You would need to provide me with the music if I don't already have it. In four lessons, I can teach you a simple routine that you will be comfortable with. Many couples decide to take an extra lesson for more confidence. I recommend that you start lessons approximately two months prior to the wedding. If you wish to learn a fancier routine, you would need additional lessons (at a cost of $40 per lesson) and you would need to start sooner.
I have worked with other members of wedding families, such as father-daughter, parents of the bride or groom, and wedding parties. I recommend that music be chosen in advance so that lessons can be geared to a specific type of dance.
"Dear Betty, Never in a million years did we imagine our first dance together as husband & wife would be so magical, so much fun. Our dance was a hit, and was raved about by our guests during our reception and even still to this day! Your lessons and guidance were a very special gift to us and we both thank you with all of our hearts. With love and gratitude, Amy & Mike" (see picture at right)
"Dear Betty, We want to thank you for the helpful dance lessons in preparation for our first dance as husband and wife. The reaction from our family and friends at the wedding was priceless. We pulled it off and did a fantastic job. Our friends Mark and Holly were so impressed, they will be seeing you soon for dance lessons in order to prepare for their first dance. Thank you for your time and patience. Love, Laura and Zack"
"Hi Betty, . . . Our first dance was fabulous!! It went off without a hitch, and everyone was very impressed with our performance!! Even more so when they found out we learned it in two weeks!! . . The first dance was definitely a highlight for us, and we couldn't have done it without you. Thanks so much for teaching us in such a short amount of time. We are eternally grateful. Jason & Kristi"
"Dear Betty, We did it! And I only stepped on Rob's foot once (I don't think anyone noticed). We are so happy we did this. Everyone was cheering and they loved the 'fan.' Thank you for everything, and once we get professional photos we will send one your way. Thank you again! - Robert & Nikki"
