First Dance Lesson Quick Info

  • For couples who have more than 8 weeks before their wedding, we offer a Complimentary Wedding Consultation at our Lakeview location. If you have less time, you should get started with a First Lesson right away!

  • Private wedding dance lessons are 1 hour long (45 minutes with an instructor and 15 minutes of practice at the end).

  • All private lesson options are tailored to your goals for your first dance. Group lessons are taught to the group and are not focused on individual couples.

  • We're BYOB, so feel free to bring your favorite beverage!

  • Rates for Private Lessons range from $90 - $125 per lesson depending on the number of lessons purchased at a time.

  • Rates for Completely Private Lesson range between $120 - $155 per lesson.

  • The number of lessons people take varies greatly and depends on a number of factors. You'll have a better idea of how many lessons you'll want to take after your first wedding dance lesson.

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. 

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.

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.
