- My Groom has two
left feet. Can he really learn to dance?
Yes. If he really has
two left feet, then I only have to fix one of them! The most important
thing I do in the lessons is make sure the groom feels not only
competent, but confident. (Read Why
Men Don't Dance for more on this subject) I don't expect him
to know how to dance before a lesson. It is my job to teach him
that. Once he learns how to lead, you will be able to follow.
- How soon
before the wedding do we need to start lessons?
You should start as soon as possible. The main reason for this is
because as you get closer to the wedding date, you will have less
free time to learn. If you start months ahead, you have plenty of
time to enjoy the process without the pressure of the performance
deadline right around the corner.
- What if we know
what kind of dance we want,
but don't have a song yet?
can recommend dozens of appropriate songs that will fit the
mood/style you are looking for. Click

lesson or two while you make your final decisions.
- What if we are torn
between several different songs?
You can bring several different songs to your first lesson to try
them out. Another option is to start with one song, and at a specifically
chosen spot, switch to the other song/dance style. This is done
quite frequently and always turns out nice.
- Can we use
part of our lesson to work on our parent dances?
but keep in mind that everyone's skill level and ability to
catch on varies with each new partner, dance step and song. You
may want to schedule your own lesson time to get the desired
- Can you
videotape our routine for us to use as a blueprint?
If you have enough memory space on your cell phone, I can dance
the steps with the bride while the groom films, and you can use
that to practice after the lessons.
- Do you do
Mash-ups tend to be a little
different than authentic partner dances since they are generally
based on hip-hip and line dances. However, if you already have a
mash-up choreographed, I totally encourage you to bring it on in
for some help with embellishments or some ballroom-style
additions! Or, to create a mash-up, we also have a teacher in
our studio who specializes in this choreography, so you could
work with us both.
- How long
is the ideal wedding dance routine?
An ideal dance
performance is two to three minutes long. If your song is longer
than that, you can fade out at a certain point. Another option
is to edit the song so you keep the really unique parts of the
song (such as the ending). I can edit it for you with an
appropriate beginning, end, and seamless transitions for the
