When should we start?
The best time to start depends on whether or not you will practice what you learn. If you'll practice, then start as soon as you like. That way, you will have time to get more comfortable with your new moves. With lots of practice, there's a good chance you'll always remember what you learn. If you don't think you'll practice, then wait until you're pretty close to the wedding to get started. Plan to leave a week or two between your last lesson and the week of your wedding. A little time is good so you don't stress about your dance not being ready and you'll have time for an extra lesson if desired. For example, if you plan to take 5 lessons, start weekly lessons 6 to 8 weeks before the big day.
How do we register?
Simply call us or email us your preferred days/times. We will coordinate with you to schedule your first appointment.
Are gift certificates available?
Yes. We can email you a card to print for your gift or mail you one. Just give us a call or drop us an email. It only takes a few minutes to set up.
What should we wear?
Dress in whatever will make you feel best while you're dancing. If your lesson is at "The Dance Place", please wear nice or business casual clothes since it is a ballroom dance studio. Otherwise, it's really up to you. Some couples get dressed up, some come straight from work, and some wear workout clothes. It can be fun to dance in clothes that make you feel attractive. We recommend women wear closed-toed shoes for their first lesson or two. For the last lesson or two, brides should bring comfortable shoes as well as closed toed heels with heights similar to the shoes they will wear at their wedding. That being said, any footwear and clothing will certainly do. Flip flops, sundresses, sneakers, T-shirts and gym shorts are all the rage in wedding dance training gear.
Can we reschedule?
Yes. Lessons may be cancelled upon request for any reason. Please save our number so you can give us notice conveniently should you need to cancel.
Can we get a choreographed dance?
Yes. We can choreograph the dance of your dreams. Of course, it takes two to tango--and that doesn't count the teacher. Be sure you make time to practice!
What do you typically teach?
We teach all styles of social and ballroom dance to couples with a variety of goals. If you want to look natural, learn to lead and follow, and just need a game plan for when it's your turn to dance, just let us know and we'll get you squared away. If you want us to stop the show, we need time to teach you choreography. It can come across as spur-of-the-moment or completely coordinated--whichever you like or somewhere in the middle. We'll be right there to figure it out with you as we go along.
Our wedding is 5 days away (or less). Can you help us?
Sure, there's still time! We feel for you and will do what we can to help you. Just call us now! 832-567-4617.
Can we do any of the following: combine different songs, do a choreographed Bollywood dance inspired by a film, do a group Renaissance court dance involving our entire 18 person wedding party, or dance to a really wacky song?
Sure. We've done all that and are still up for new challenges. Let us know what you're thinking!
My fiance can't dance at all. Can you help us?
Sure! We promise to make it a fun date and will teach you as much as you can comfortably handle. We'll cater the lesson to your skills, so you will be comfortable during your first dance; not counting 123, 123, 123 in your head.
We had a bad experience at another studio. How will you treat us differently?
We'll listen and customize our program to fit your needs. We've been told by clients that come to us from other studios that they were pleased with us and our ability to teach everything they wanted to learn very efficiently.
