My husband and I had the best time at BDC. Liz and Rachael were our instructors and were amazing to work with, we even taught them a few of our crazy homemade moves.

My husband and I had never danced formally together before our lessons. At those 8 lessons, we felt ready to take the stage for our first dance at our wedding. Liz and Rachael were enthusiastic about our learning experience, they took the time to break things down for us, review the steps countless times each week and cheer us on as we practiced together. They also took to the time to get to know us as people and to ask questions about our wedding planning and what we did when we weren't at the studio. We felt like people, not clients!

I would highly recommend BDC, convenient location (well for us), easy parking and great dance instructors.

Fun for years to come    posted 12/12/2013 (modified 12/13/2013)

We started our dance lessons about 9 months ahead of our wedding. Needless to say, we were worried about our first dance and our lack of dance skills. We initially worked with Rachael to choose a style of dance that we both liked and chose our first dance song. Then we really dug into learning and perfected our fully choreographed dance. Rachael was a lot of fun to work with, was very patient and taught us a dance that we both really liked. There were bumps along the way, but she made sure that we both felt comfortable and knew exactly what we were supposed to do. I am sure that she felt like a therapist at times, but she was always upbeat and positive and helped us to enjoy the process of learning.

Overall BDC is just a fun place to be. There were always other couples dancing during our lessons and it was amazing to see other people progress over the weeks/months. The best part of this came at the monthly BDC dance parties when couples could perform in front of an audience. We got to perform our first dance in front of a very supportive & cheering audience. Having that dry run under our belts really helped to settled our nerves on our wedding day.

We enjoyed dancing at BDC so much that we plan to continue taking lessons! Thanks BDC for all of the help and fun along the way!

lot of fun    posted 10/30/2012

Wanted a decent first dance with my wife and found this on theknot.com. Have a free 30 minute assessment so we gave it a try.

We worked with the co-owner, Matt. He was a lot of fun and made the lessons enjoyable and set the pace to match our skill level. Very patient. Lessons usually started with a few glasses of wine to help me out. the other instructors seemed to have a great time too working with their students.

He structured our wedding dance in line to how many lessons we were taking and by how fast we picked up new moves to get a dance prepared in time for our wedding. It went awesome!

as of our last lesson they were getting ready to move literally across the wall from their current place to a much bigger location. We look forward to taking future dance lessons there. Only downside is dance lessons are not cheap but you are paying for an hour for you and your partner with a private instructor.
