Wedding planning tip #27: Don't wait until the last minute to book your wedding dance lessons!
Your wedding dance is one of the most important parts of
your wedding. Just imagine...you and your beloved, holding
one another in a loving embrace.....in the middle of the dance floor....alone....in......front...of..... a whole room of people with all eyes
If the thought of it is anxiety producing enough then don't wait until the last minute to schedule your lessons. I suggest also giving up that momentary lapse of reason where you may also be telling yourself that you and your fiancé can just figure it out on your own, or throw something together real quick.
Don't do it! Instead, buy yourself a little peace of mind and book your wedding dance lessons at between 10-12 weeks prior to your wedding date.
Hire only a trusted professional wedding dance instructor who has experience working with couples and choreographing specifically for weddings. An experienced instructor will ask a lot of questions and the better ones will inquire about the space and dimensions of the dance area at your wedding venue. This ensures that your wedding dance uses the space appropriately and that you look good dancing in the space available.

routine? Or fancy a romantic Fox Trot turned Bollywood beat? Make it fun, make it memorable. Additional hours may be added on a la carte at a rate of $85 per hour.
How many dance lessons you will need depends on several
factors: how quickly you and your partner learn, how much choreography is
required to fill the length of the song you choose, and how many lessons you
both need to feel confident and comfortable on the dance floor will all
determine the number of lessons most appropriate for your situation.
The minimum amount necessary is 6 lessons with most couples average between 10-15.
In a site analysis I will ask you for specific information about your wedding venue. The dimensions of the dance floor, the type of material the floor will consist of (wood, tile, concrete), and the configuration of your audience. This is critical so that we ensure your dance is custom tailored to fit in the space you have available.
