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.

My fiance and I arrived for our first dance lesson unprepared without a wedding song, minimal prior dance instruction, and only 8 weeks to go before our wedding. Szewai and the entire BDC team could not have been more helpful. Rather than having a rehearsed choreographed first dance, Szewai taught us some basic steps and transitions that could be used for a number of our songs. She was always patient and encouraging, but also not afraid to give accurate feedback to help us improve. As a result, we had a lot of confidence going into our first dance and received tons of compliments on it. In addition, the entire BDC team was always very welcoming and friendly when we arrived or left.

We loved Ballroom Dance Chicago! My husband and I took weekly dance lessons starting about 3 months before our wedding, and ended up taking about 12 or so lessons total. Audrey was a great teacher - very thoughtful and patient. We are not the most natural dancers, so we definitely appreciated the approach! After our lessons, we were ready for our first dance (and wedding dancing in general). Our guests were impressed, so we felt great that the lessons paid off.
The studio is geared more towards wedding dance lessons but it's a fun place to take dance lessons in general. We are thinking about going back to learn salsa. They also host parties (so you can keep practicing). It makes a great date night!
