Weddings


Hooray, you’re getting hitched!

Whether you have two left feet and stage fright or you are an experienced dancer, a few dance lessons can ensure that you have the perfect dance, with your perfect partner, on your perfect day.

If you envision slow dancing to a romantic classic, kicking your heels up Gatsby style, or anything in between, swing and charleston are easy to learn and thrilling to watch. We have a special love for working with couples on wedding dances, since all of us had swing band and swing first-dances at our own recent weddings. We remember the nerves and excitement.

We help you choose a song (if you don’t already have one), guide you in choosing a vision for your dance, and then help you get so comfortable with your dance that you can relax and enjoy it on your big day. Some couples want fully choreographed routines, from their first step on the floor until their final dip, and other couples want the swing skills to be able to have a spontaneous, made-in-the-moment dance.

Three ‘packages’ are outlined alongside, or a custom plan can be designed for you and your sweetheart. Swing and charleston group lessons are also a fun addition to wedding rehearsal dinners to get your guests ready to share the dance floor with you.
