Christmas Parties Galore!

Though this time of the year is the most cheerful and magical, it can also be very hectic. We find ourselves stressed out with shopping, planning, hosting parties and doing our best to bring happiness to those we love. Take time for yourself and your sweetie to enjoy the holiday season with a night of dancing and romancing, or bring some friends and make it a “holiday girl’s or guy’s night out” where you could have fun meeting new people!

Why Learn to Dance? by Deborah Joy Block, National Wedding Dance Expert
You’ve made a big investment in your wedding day. Learning to dance is an important investment in your relationship creating lifetime memories — wonderful for the wedding and a skill useful at future social events.

Dance lessons are the most fun and romantic time you can have during your wedding planning process! Shine on the dance floor and make your first dance the highlight of the reception: SPARKLE IN THE SPOTLIGHT!

Your wedding album and video will impress when your first dance is well choreographed. We will teach you how to romantically dance as a married couple with dignified decorum avoiding the "high school prom sway" or "bump and grind."

Unlike flowers, cakes, and decorations, you cannot outsource the first dance. You and your loved one will face the music and dance confidently after lessons with us.

The First Dance is your first presentation to the world of your teamwork, partnership, and unity as a married couple.
