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.

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 and Kelvin turned two galumphy spouses-to-be into freaking Fred and Ginger — at least, for the span of a two-minute song!

Honestly this was our FAVORITE pat of the wedding planning. Krista & Kelvin are absolutely amazing. I truly don't believe there are better dance instructors out there. Its so great to have a couple teaching you, especially a couple that cares so much about the outcome! Not only...

Excellent Dance Instructors! Krista and Kelvin are a fantastic team! They were able to create beautiful choreography for our first dance. They were patient, encouraging, kind and friendly. They always made sure we had fun during our lessons and emailed us a video of each lesson... Read More so we could easily view our progress and to jog our memories while practicing. They worked with our tight schedules and were very accommodating. They are also very responsive and communicative. With a husband and wife team as instructors, each of us were able to get individual instruction and attention.

With their help, my husband and I were 100% prepared to wow our guests on our wedding day (which we did!). Choosing YNC to be our dance instructors for our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made. Thank you so much YNC!!!

We brought wine to a couple of the lessons, and it was so much fun to be silly and enjoy ourselves on the dance floor in such an easygoing environment. I also loved that they made videos for us to watch so we could remember and practice the steps in between sessions. Watching ourselves on camera was a little funny, but the videos were extremely helpful. I am so glad we chose to take dance lessons with Krista and Kelvin. It made the first dance and father-daughter dance that must more special. We can't say enough good things about Your Night Choreo. Thanks Krista and Kelvin!

We hired Krista & Kelvin to help us for our July 15, 2017 wedding. They were awesome and blew us away. To keep this review short, just a few examples: *They helped us choreograph and truncate a dance for one of our favorite songs: Jazon Mraz, "I Won't Give Up" *Having two... Read More instructors is huge. We've tried some dance lessons with only one instructor, and it isn't the same. Much less helpful. You can teach way more and more efficiently with two instructors. *Video of lessons is also huge and helpful for remembering the moves and practicing between lessons. *We got 5 lessons, and went from complete beginners to having a great dance and feeling confident about it. We learned so much every time so that we were pretty much ready after only 4 lessons. There was NEVER any upselling or encouragement to get more lessons. Instead, it felt like Krista and Kelvin were trying to teach us as much as possible in every lesson. *Our dance ended up great! Lots of compliments from our guests and we enjoy watching the video. Again, we were horrible dancers and complete beginners, so to get us to this point is amazing. Go with Krista and Kelvin! You won't regret it.

Krista and Kelvin are amazing. They are great dancers, teachers, and people.

My wife and I had no dance experience going in, so we were nervous.... Read More They made us feel confident, comfortable, and were extremely constructive throughout the entire experience. Krista and Kelvin only danced with themselves and only had my wife and me dance with one another (huge deal for us since we were anxious about dancing for the first time!), but I am sure they would switch if you asked them to. Krista and Kelvin are on top of their game! They would email us our video so that my wife and I could practice before our next session. Krista and Kelvin always sent email reminders so that we would not accidentally miss our sessions! Super cool! Krista and Kelvin are committed and friendly. They got to know my wife and me on a personal level. They asked what our lives/schedules were like and used that information to plan our sessions. They were available for us during late nights, which was perfect. Aside from being awesome people and great with their students, they are well versed dancers. My wife and I learned how to dance a slow song in English (Marry Me - Train) followed by a Spanish bachata song (Te Extraño - Xtreme). We loved their teaching styles so much, that we extended the lessons to learn how to dance to Banda, Norteñas, and Cumbia (all Spanish music genres). Who knows, maybe we will go for a Salsa lesson soon!

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.

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.
