Krista & Kel Dance Lessons-- the Easiest Wedding Decision You Will Have to Make!

Reviewed on 4/25/2015

Gosh, where on earth do I start? Maybe it would suffice it to say that training for our "first dance" with Krista and Kel was one of the most memorable, game changing, transformative, joyful experiences my husband and I shared together while preparing for our wedding. But... Read More somehow that does not do these two people justice! Training with Krista and Kel was so special and they are two of the most professional, hard working, and kind hearted people I know. Their incredible spirit translates fully -- and then some -- into not only their craft but their teaching style. Krista and Kel prepared us beautifully for our first dance-- giving us the perfect roadmap to our favorite song and anticipating at every turn our needs, our challenges, and the things to remember on the big day. The dance lessons with Krista and Kel became more than just lessons for us, it was a safe, non-judgmental, sacred and, most importantly, joyful place for my husband and I to seek refuge during all of the pre-wedding craziness. On our wedding day, we performed the dance without any problems-- even though I had a dress for days and very high heels! It was one of my favorite parts of the wedding, because it was a time when my husband and I could really connect; it was our sweet, special, little moment, just the two of us. I truly believe this gift of a memory was in large part because of Krista and Kel's loving, supportive and encouraging energy. That dance was a moment my husband and I will cherish for a lifetime and we have Krista and Kel to thank for that. I HIGHLY recommend Krista and Kelvin-- your wedding, your first dance, and your precious memories will thank you for it!!


No words could tell how awesome YNC is!

Krista + Kel = incredible couple. We wanted to have a fun first dance, and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have found YNC. What we started with: Husband (to be) with good rhythm and awkward high school dance experience. Wife (to be) with lots of energy and zero dance... Read More experience. What they gave us: 2 new friends, incredibly fun dance lessons, a fully choreographed dance that fit our personalities perfectly, a listening ear when we wanted to slightly tweak something, an ego boost (yes, they truly make you believe you are a good dancer and help you fool others too...), and the list goes on.... The lessons: We did the 5 lesson package, and they were so fun that we were always so excited to go to them. They try to learn about you before the first lesson so they can plan the dance to fit your style, wedding attire, venue, etc. Each lesson, they would come with a portion of the song choreographed, and we would practice both what we had already learned and the new dance moves. They would always make sure we were comfortable with everything and if something didn't feel right, we would work together to change it on the spot. Then they would video us doing the portion of the dance we had finished and send it to us so we could practice. Having a husband and wife teaching was so helpful because Kel could show my husband exactly what to do, and Krysta could show me. The lessons were full of dancing yes, but they were also full of laughter and getting to know each other. Krysta and Kel are amazing people and just hanging out with them is fun. The dance: My husband and I absolutely loved our dance. There is something so special about dancing together, but it is so much more fun when you can do it well, and thanks to Krysta and Kel we felt like we could. We were so excited to dance at the wedding that we weren't nervous at all, and we had such an amazing, special time performing the dance for all our guests. It was definitely one of the greatest highlights of our day and a memory we will cherish forever. In fact, we loved our dance so much that we didn't want to forget it, so we have danced to our song in our living room on every "monthiversary". We could never thank YNC enough for the amazing experience. We are so thankful that we found them and decided to spend the money on the lessons because the memories they helped us create are truly priceless. Do you want something special that you will remember for the rest of your life? Krista and Kel are the perfect duo to help you create that memory!!

My wife and I went to Your Night Choreo with Krista and Kelvin a few weeks before our wedding. I will be the first to admit I was a little standoffish about the whole idea. I'm a guy that's into offroad racing, working on cars, mt biking, snowboarding,camping, ice hockey, etc.... Read More Dancing not really my bag. Maybe the occasional Bernie out around the campfire. haha If you have ever seen the movie "The Cutting Edge". Basically, what we had going on here. Let me tell you was 200% worth it. We both had zero experience slow dancing. In only three 1 hour session (okay, we practiced a few times at home too) they had us tearing up the dance floor. They are laid back, fun and very professional. They took time to make sure we were both comfortable with each move before adding adding to our dance. When it was game time (wedding day)our lessons really helped take the pressure off us and let us dazzle the crowd with confidence. The best part about the whole thing, we will have these moves for any slow dance occasion down the road. Thanks to Your Night Choreo! Elliott and Kayla

Krista & Kelvin were such a pleasure to work with!! We actually looked forward to all the lessons. They created a dance that was so perfect for my husband and I.

Krista and Kelvin are fantastic dance instructors, and amazing people! They bring positivity and energy to their craft, and understand the capabilities of their clients. They were extremely helpful in teaching us one move at a time, and brought our first dance into a full... Read More routine. We took three one hour lessons and enjoyed all of it.

There is no way to thank Krista and Kelvin enough for what they did for our wedding day. I would like to first say that the did not only provide a beautifully choreographed dance for our first dance but they also offered us refuge from the busy days of stress in the weeks that... Read More led up to our wedding. Every lesson, my fiancé and I walked into the studio and were able to be 100% present in the moment and this was very welcomed during that busy time. Krista and Kelvin made a beautiful dance number to the song “Lovely Tonight” by Joshua Radin and even edited the song to make it more appropriate for the dance. Although this is not a super familiar song to many people, they made a dance that reflected the meaning and was simple enough for my fiancé and I that we felt comfortable. Furthermore, after each lesson, they email you a video of you doing the dance so you can practice which is so helpful. When the day arrived we were overwhelmed by the way the dance captured how in-sync and in love we were as a couple. Krista and Kelvin helped us display this love to all of our guests and we had a great time doing it. Originally, having dance lessons was my fiancé’s idea, but now I am a huge advocate for the idea and think every couple should do the same!

Our wedding planner (whom I trust immensely) referred Krista and Kelvin because she knew I wanted to learn a choreographed dance for our wedding. I wanted the dance to be really special and I was also very nervous about it. After our first meeting with the lovely couple I felt... Read More instantly calmer and at ease. They are an adorable husband and wife team and make the process a true joy. I chose a Marvin Gaye song and they choreographed a dance we were thrilled with, complete with a couple tricks. I didn't want to have to even think about the dance on the day of because I knew I would have so much on my mind, and by the same we had finished our lessons it was totally committed to muscle memory. We nailed the dance on our wedding day and plan to continue taking classes, just because it was so enjoyable. I can't recommend them enough and I was a very picky bride!

Krista and Kelvin work miracles! My fiancé and I had never formally danced; we’d never even casually danced together. We were stiff and I had a tendency to take the lead. Our expectations were pretty low on what could be accomplished in the 5 weeks before our wedding,... Read More especially since we had little time to rehearse between lessons. All we really wanted was to not look like a couple of fools during our first dance. They taught us moves! We know moves! And we look pretty good doing them. They aren’t very complicated, but you would have fooled me. We looked natural and comfortable and had so much fun during our fist dance! I’m so glad we did it!

We didn't know what to expect when we signed up, but we were blown away and so grateful for having chosen Krista & Kelvin. They are so kind, easy going, positive, and supportive. Learning a choreographed dance is challenging and they knew exactly how to create something that would be perfect for me and my dad. We both LOVED that both Krista and Kelvin taught the class together because it's a huge help for us to watch them dance first and then instruct us. There's no way we'd have learned our dance as quick without both of them. My dad and I looked forward to class every week! And it was SO FUN to have a special dance with my dad, it made my wedding so much more amazing. :) I highly recommend taking lessons with them, even if you only want to learn a few moves (turns, dips, etc.). I even bought 2 lessons for my fiance and I so that the two of us would feel more natural during our first dance. Plus, it's so fun to have just even a couple moves - your guests will go crazy! :)

My husband and I were looking for a different approach to our first dance as a couple. We are a mix of different cultures & backgrounds and so was our wedding party. We knew we wanted something traditional, but only to start off. Our goal was to surprise everyone with a dance... Read More that was representing us for who we are with all our facets. We researched dance studios online, but most of the studios seamed too stiff or conservative for our taste. We almost gave up the search, but found Your Night Choreo by accident. Krista and Kelvin’s easy-going and open-minded charm was not just a web-page advertisement gimmick. We scheduled a consultation and boom: Our decision was made. It was the perfect fit. We were so excited we had found teachers that were just as excited and open minded about our surprise first dance as we were and so began the work on our carefully selected mash-up dance to 4 different songs crossing over 4 different styles and eras. Oh and we are no dance pros. We are just a fun & active couple. No prior experience. Krista and Kelvin explained the steps, transitions and moves so well to us it was easy and fun. Granted we had to practice at home, but it actually allowed us to have some real fun during the otherwise rather busy wedding planning period. We were laughing with Krista and Kelvin and alone at home watching the video recordings they send us to support our practice. Music mesh up and editing was also done by the two. Amazing. Our dance was a complete success and we laughed the entire time. Nobody saw the transitions coming and we got endless compliments from our guests. We highly recommend trusting these two wonderful dance instructors and human beings. You’ll surely learn how to dance well and have a wonderful time doing it.
