( BETTER IF SCHEDULED TWO MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY)
- You and your partner will come for an initial dance lesson. This is just fundamentals of how to dance, hold, move and count your steps. This initial dance lesson also gives me a chance to prescribe additional lessons if I see that the level of skills needs more attention. This scenario has only happened twice in all my years of teaching and it happened because the level of dance the bride wanted was greater than her ability to perform the dance. So she wanted to add another 3 lessons.
(PREFERABLY FOUR WEEKS BEFORE THE WEDDING)
- By the second lesson, I will have the choreography and the music ready to learn. I write the steps on a board and we learn together each steps. We record the steps with my voice in the background reminding you the count. It sounds funny but it will help you memorize the steps. You will take the written board home, I will email you the learning video and you take at least two weeks to practice.
(BEST IF SCHEDULED ONE WEEK BEFORE THE WEDDING)
- Preferably, one week before the wedding is our rehearsal dance. For one solid hour you dance the choreography over and over again. We have a wedding dance costume that we fit to all brides to give you a sense of discomfort with a gown, this helps you and your partner to make adjustments to your dance space. (the dress is hideous but very funny) We will record the last session just for keepsake. It has become a very special gift to families because by then the dance looks very pretty and the costumes are just hilarious. (Sometimes we invite members of the dance club to be present and dance so that it adds another level of unexpected moments to your routine. Our hope is to resemble as much as possible what will take place the wedding day in terms of making you a little nervous.
The package is paid at the time of scheduling the first lesson. This is non-refundable, I never cancel a class. However, in the event that you have an unexpected change of plans, I will always find a way to schedule something that meets your time schedule.
