Make Your First Dance Memorable

Let us help you make you’re First Dance an easy, stress free, experience you will remember for a lifetime! Forget the high school Stand-and-Sway type of dance you’ve seen too many times , our goal is to make you look like a natural dancer on your big day! Whether you want to have something short and simple or if you want to “wow” the crowd with your dance we are here to see it through. One of our highly experienced instructors will help you create a special memory you guys will cherish forever. We’ve thought of all the things you haven’t such the nice picture moments within the dance, what to expect with dancing in ‘the dress’ and more. We can even help you pick out a song if you haven’t done that already!

We had a great time learning a wedding dance together. We took lessons for about six months leading up to our wedding. It was great to get to spend that time together every week. The Academy was wonderful and created the perfect dance for our wedding day!

We improved greatly

Both of us could dance, but nothing formal. Stephanie guided us through learning the fox trot during weekly sessions that in the end made us look like we knew what we were doing during our first dance. Whew!!

An Academy First Dance guarantees it's not the last dance. At the Academy of Social Dance, we have been helping couples create the memory of their "First Dance" for over 40 years. It is our passion to provide each blissful couple an experience that will not only last years beyond their wedding day…a single moment that will be cherished and warm the heart of the newlyweds, their family, and friends for a lifetime. We teach and share with all that walk through the Academy doors, not only a dance they will share on their wedding day but one that can be danced for the rest of their lives together
