The First Dance

Wedding Program Packages

With three different wedding packages available, we work around your schedule and within your budget to provide enough lessons to create your memorable first dance as a married couple. We recommend allowing 2-3 months for your lessons, but if it is only a few weeks before your wedding and you are just now thinking about dance lessons, don’t worry! We can still help. With just a few private lessons, we can help you and your fiancé feel more confident on the dance floor.

Our wedding packages begin with a FREE dance evaluation. This is a private lesson with one of our experienced instructors to discuss the song you have chosen and offer ideas that best suit your music choice. If you have not chosen a song or are having trouble deciding, we can suggest several choices from our wide selection of music. From there, we will suggest a wedding package that will help you accomplish your routine.

Wedding Package ASimple & Elegant

  • Appropriate entrance for the Wedding Couple into the ballroom
  • Wedding Song Analysis – we will help you determine the dance, patterns and choreography which are suitable for your choice of song
  • Choreography for your first dance as husband and wife
  • 5 Private Dance Lessons which are 45 minutes in length. The couple will be concentrating on perfecting your special dance, as well as, learning to have fun with your dancing!
  • Music editing, if necessary

 

Wedding Package B – Striking & Spectacular

  • Appropriate entrance into the ballroom
  • Wedding Song Analysis
  • Customized choreography that is more advanced and detailed than offered in Package A and a routine that will dazzle your friends and family. We put an emphasis on arm styling for the lady, leading skills and confidence for the man.
  • 10 Private Dance Lessons which are 45 minutes in length.
  • Choice of exciting patterns that are real showstoppers. Some choices might be lifts, drops and dips. This is your day to shine!

 

Wedding Package C – The Ultimate Performance

  • Appropriate entrance into the ballroom
  • Wedding Song Analysis
  • 20 Private Dance Lessons which are 45 minutes in length
  • Learn an exciting dance routine comparable to the pro’s you’ve watched on “Dancing with the Stars”! Your family and friends will be amazed! With 20 lessons, you can also learn a few extra dances to perform throughout your wedding reception.
  • Get ready for the honeymoon! We’ll show you some easy and fun variations that you can use when you dance on your honeymoon or for the rest of your lives. Why not dance at your own wedding and every other affair you attend as a married couple? Dancing is a gift of a lifetime!
  • One month of unlimited group lessons to be used before or after your wedding.

Brides and bridal parties, please bring shoes similar to the ones you intend to wear at the wedding.

I’ve been dancing at Shall We Dance for almost 25 years. The studio has brought me incredible joy, and has given me an so many amazing memories which I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. I love the people inside and outside the studio. I get very emotional when I think about dancing, because it’s not only healthy for the body and mind, but has also given me friendships to last a lifetime, and for that I am so grateful.

I’ve been a student at Shall We Dance for almost four years. I have lived in town for 27 years and, up until October 27th of 2011, I would drive by Shall We Dance, look in the windows and think, “I really want to do this!” I got the courage two days later to inquire what it was all about, and met Nelson and Ingrid. I had an intro lesson and never looked back. Dancing changed my life forever. I call the studio ‘magic’. I never knew how wonderful it was until I started ballroom dancing. It’s great exercise, makes you smile and, best of all, makes you feel so good about yourself.

To Shall We Dance Staff & Students:

I personally want to Thank you for a spectacular competition week end. It truly was the BEST event ever.
Your staff and students are as warm and friendly as they come. Not to mention professional and talented.

My newcomer student, Robert Steiger, was impressed and will be joining us in the future. (of course it does help to take home 2 top student awards). LOL. He told me that it was the proudest moment of his life.
As far as my husband goes…he is committed to learning enough about dance so that he too can join us all on the dance floor.
At no time did he feel bored.

You my friend…ran a class act event that was second to none.
On a more personal level…I am proud and blessed to have you met you and always look forward to the next time of being in your company.

God Bless ALL of you.

Sincerely,
Mary Serpente
