Catherine is the best dance instructor in Houston.

Catherine did an outstanding job for us! In just 3 lessons she taught us our wedding dance, which was no small feat for my wife and me as we aren't the most coordinated of couples! Our dance was a huge hit on our big day, and we owe it all to Catherine!

My now husband and I were hesitant to take dance lessons and have a choreographed first dance. But let me tell you - working with Catherine at Wedding Dance Houston was the best decision we made while planning our wedding! She is so incredibly talented, and after our first... Read More lesson with her, we were both so excited to show off our moves! We just got married last weekend, and we performed our first dance flawlessly (even the lift!!).

Andrea was amazing! She was incredibly patient with us, especially with my husband who has never danced in his life. We wanted to recreate a dance we saw in a movie, so she taught us the choreography and cut the song for us too.
