Bridal Consultant Review:
"If the thought of dancing with your new wife or husband in front of all your family and friends for your first dance as a couple at your wedding reception terrifies you (like it does me!), we wanted to make sure you knew about a fabulous opportunity. The Wedding Dance Specialists is a local company based here in the DC metropolitan area that has taught thousands of couples how to dance like a pro for their wedding reception. I had the opportunity to observe one of their classes and loved watching the professionals in action, giving helpful tips like how to travel and spin safely and elegantly around the dance floor while wearing a ball gown. And what couple doesn't need a date night before the big day? Happy Planning!"
- - Julie Daniel, A Splash of Elegance

Bridal Consultant Review:
"As a professional wedding planner, I have seen countless "First Dances." After my boyfriend and I participated in the Footsteps & Twirls Wedding Dance Workshops to survey the quality of service and the experience, I am fully confident in referring The Wedding Dance Specialists. Our instructor was able to help us come together as one! We didn't think that would be possible in just two workshops. Needless to say we are DVRing "Dancing with the Stars" now,practicing our moves weekly and have finally bridged the gap that existed for us for so many years when it came dancing. I can't believe it but the TWDS workshop already changed our lives!"
- - Cristina Curcio, Owner of Cristina Maria Special Events

Engaged Couple Review:
"Taking the Wedding Dance Boot Camp was worthwhile because it gave us a plan and some structure. We really enjoyed the variety of options and choices in the material presented and it was helpful to see everything demonstrated and explained so clearly. The quality of instruction and professionalism of our instructor were fantastic! We loved our experience. Thanks so much!" - - Denise and Devin Myles, wedding 5.18.13

Celebrity Bride Review:
The Wedding Dance Bootcamps were a great start! I would certainly recommend a wedding workshop from The Wedding Dance Specialist for anyone looking to learn the basics of ballroom dancing. It was a great little "date day", they keep it light and fun & romantic. It was a great foundation for us & we are going to take a few private lessons with TWDS to choreograph our wedding song for our First Dance! - Chelsea Causey (now Sparaco), Washington Redskins Cheerleader & MAXIM Magazine model, (Married on 24 Sep 2011)

Reasons to Supplement with Private Lessons

The Wedding Dance Workshop is very comprehensive and intense. It recieves rave reviews from couples, event planners and the media. It is EXTREMELY helpful but we do not recommend it as a complete substitute for private lessons. Due to the nature of a "spotlight dance" private attention, polish and customization is required. Therefore, we strongly recommend a minimum of one private lesson for the following reasons:

Private Lessons
  • Private attention from the national wedding dance expert not a novice, trainee or traditional studio generalist.
  • Polish up the dance with special techniques to avoid looking stiff.
  • Receive personalized attention and learn three times faster than a group lesson.
  • Select your favorite moves from the workshop to incorporate into your dance
  • Practice to your special song
  • Lifts and Dips
  • More elaborate foot steps
  • Emphasize "Teamwork" techniques to travel safely across the floor
  • Increase confidence and elegance
  • Nationally Trendsetting Wedding Day Dance Timeline
  • Nationally Trendsetting Wedding Day Dance Survival Tips, Practice Tips and Partnering Techniques
  • Use our Practice Crinoline for wedding dance dress rehearsal.
  • Complimentary in-class Video for evaluation and practice at home
  • Reinforce a variety of twirls, footsteps, transitions, travelling options
  • Feel more confident and natural
  • Go at your own pace
  • Focus on polishing technique including posture, armstyling, presentation
  • Enjoy a "date night" together since dance lessons are the most romantic aspect of planning a wedding!
  • Be versatile enough to dance all night long during the general reception too!.
  • Learn more Technique, Styling and Polish
  • More intricate choreography
  • Feel more comfortable with Tempo
  • Learn a Last Dance, Fast Dance or Honors Dance with Parent
  • Workshop attendees who become FB fans at the end of the workshop can earn a $5 per hour discount on Polish Private Lessons if they purchase on the day of the workshop.
  • Videotape the material as a practice tool to take home with you.
  • Receive a $10 per hour discount when you purchase polish up lessons on the same day you register for a workshop

*If you are not planning on taking private lessons please get an accurate idea of your audience's perspective by videotaping your home rehearsal and watching it to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses before making your final decision.
