Our first dance was a hit!

I am so pleased how our first dance went all thanks to Fred Astaire! We loved our two dance instructors and they were very patient with us while we sometimes struggled with the steps. They also threw in a free half an hour lesson for my in-laws who were in from England the... Read More week of our wedding. Lessons are not cheap (anywhere, not just them) but I would love another reason to take dance lessons there.

So much fun!!!

What an amazing experience!!! We had a gift certificate for 2 dance lessons. While we knew we weren't going to leave dancing like Fred Astaire, we did learn some basic moves to help us look and feel more confidant for our first dance. We didn't go for the choreographed... Read More routine since that really wasn't our style, but we did pick up some nice turns and posture techniques that really gave us a "10" from all the guests! I recommend taking dance lessons before your wedding, even if you don't have 2 left feet!! It's just such a great way to have fun and let loose before the wedding and learn more about yourself during that process.

Fantastic and FUN!

My fiancee and I took an intro ballroom dancing class in college. But Will at Fred Astaire took it to the next level. We had a beautifully choreographed dance (rumba and fox trot) to "Wonderful Tonight." Will and his staff were punctual, fun, friendly, patient and TALENTED. We... Read More had a great time and will go back for post-wedding lessons!

Good lessons

We had 2 instructors, and we definitely preferred Nicole! She was very patient with us and good at describing and showing us how to do various moves. She listened to our song and had some good ideas about what steps to do, and how to transition to a few different moves for some... Read More variety. We practiced at home, and even with a few missteps the day of everything went great!

First Dance Lesson

I enjoyed taking lessons from them. We took 8 lessons and they choreographed to the song we picked. Male and female instructors take turn each week. They make our dance simple and elegant and we received a lot of compliments from our guests afterwards. I highly recommend taking... Read More lessons from them.

I'd been looking forward to taking dance lessons to prepare for my wedding, but this was a bust. It was very awkward (granted part of that was my fiance's reluctance), but they also refused to teach more contemporary steps. Apparently just about the only dance anyone should ever... Read More do is rumba, which is ridiculous. It is also very expensive to go beyond their basic package, and they were very pushy about choreographing a dance, which isn't what we wanted. We were hoping to learn a few practical steps, but it didn't work out.

We had lots of fun and learned a first dance to impress our guests!

Solid dance teachers

Because of our busy schedules, we only signed up for a 5 dance lesson package after using 2 through a groupon. They were a bit pushy about signing up for more but with my husband and my work schedules, it just wouldn't fit. They worked with us really well even though we didn't... Read More have too many lessons and managed to pull off the cutest dance ever in just 5 lessons. It didn't all come together until the end, leaving us guessing if it would, but it did! We were so happy to impress everyone with the cute little moves we added into our not-at-all slow dance (how boring!).
