Couldn’t more highly recommend BDC! The atmosphere is relaxed. You feel like you walked into a hip restaurant, not a stiff dance studio. The weekly lessons were a great way for my husband and I to connect while we were in the chaos of wedding planning. They make it so enjoyable and teach at your level. Don’t wait any longer- start going right away! It was worth every penny!

While we can all appreciate Kanye and Kim’s first dance for its lack of imagination (if you haven’t seen it, you must!), know you can and should do better than that. 

The great news is that we’re 100% certified in “Crafting First Dances that Are Actually Enjoyable to Watch,” so you’re in good hands. Contact us to get started.

Maybe you want a fully choreographed dance. Maybe you just want to take your sway to the next level. Or maybe you have no clue what you want! Regardless, we’re excited to help you prepare for your wedding and make your goals a reality (or help you figure out what your goals are). So, schedule your first lesson sooner rather than later, and we’ll go from there.

Each private lesson is one full hour with a wedding dance instructor. Rates range from $90 - $110 per lesson depending on the number of lessons purchased at a time. Per lesson pricing is also available. Rates for working with Matthew, Master Instructor, range from $145 - $175/hour

We know you’re probably thinking, “But how many lessons will we need?” While there’s no “one size fits all” magic number of lessons to make you feel good dancing together, the more time you spend learning to dance, the better dancers you’ll be! Whether you just got engaged or are getting married next weekend, we’d love to meet you and get started. If you have more questions, check out First Dance FAQ or contact us to start a conversation with a wedding dance instructor today.

Running short on time? We recommend signing up for a Crash Course.
