Weddings -


Congratulations on your engagement! What a joyous time in your lives! While I am currently abroad for a year, the following services are available to you for your first dance:

Private Lessons with a Co-Teacher

Receive personal attention with lessons that are fun and easy to follow! I am happy to book you with my good friends and co-teachers in San Francisco. I've worked personally with each of my instructors who are certified and have many years of experience teaching wedding couples. We will work together to give you a first dance that fits your song and represents who you are as a couple. Taking dance lessons will also allow you to spend quality time together and de-stress from all the wedding planning!

Sessions are one hour and includes your own private studio. Lesson packages available.

Skype Lessons with Frances

Learn the basics of a first dance in the comfort of your own home! Through our Skype lessons, I will introduce partner dancing and teach the bare minimum "survival skills" for your dance. These skills include: making an elegant entrance, leading and following, twirling and ending with a dip. I can also advise on what style of dance to do for your special song.

Skype lessons include pre-recorded video demos with me and a partner that break down each step, allowing you to gain a better visual and understanding of each move.

Please Contact Frances for pricing and availability.

"How many private lessons should we take?" The number of lessons to take depends on your dance goals, skill level, and amount of time to practice. I highly recommend taking at least 6 lessons for a polished routine, complete with an entrance, a strong foundation of basics, spins, stylish patterns, and the final dip. Of course, taking any number of lessons will upgrade you from swaying back and forth together and I will tailor your dance program to your specific needs.

"How soon should we start?"  I highly recommend starting at least 3 months before your wedding in order for you to feel the most confident with your dance. When learning any new hobby it is important to practice your art frequently, especially in the beginning stages. Grouping lessons closer together will allow you to retain steps better and progress faster. However, I understand not everyone has that time and I will gladly work with you on your schedule, even if your wedding was the very next day!
"What services are included with your packages?" A private dance studio is always included, which means you never have to share space or music with other students and teachers.  In addition to these services, I offer personalized choreography, song editing, recordings of your lessons for practice, and professional performance tips (recovering after mistakes, posing for your guests and photographer, making the most out of your specific dance floor, and how to best perform in your dress and wedding shoes).
