We taught this couple for their first dance, taught dance lessons at their wedding to entertain their guests, AND DJ's their wedding, and this is what they had to say...
Dance: Tango. Preparation time: 6 months
Adam and Maria show that it's always nice to be able to go out dancing.
This couple spent about 6 months training with us in Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha Cha and Swing. The first part of the video is the father/daughter dance (Swing). At about 4:27, it switches to the First Dance (Foxtrot)
This couple studied Foxtrot for about 10 hours. We were lucky enough to attend their wedding so we could see their dancing first hand.
A nice benefit of having your dance teachers come to your wedding... we can sneak by your table and whisper "this is a Foxtrot", so you know when to use your dance moves again.
This couples studied with us for 17 hours to prepare their wedding Waltz.
The groom called us and said, "we have 7 weeks 'til our wedding, can we fit in 20 hours in that time, because I'm afraid we are going to need it." Turns out, his parents are Ballroom dancers, so he really understood that even learning "the basics", takes time. We made it happen, and they couldn't have been happier! Watch all the way to the end. You won't be sorry.
