Your special day is coming up! Commemorate that "once in a lifetime" event by making your wedding dance something you will want to see again with each anniversary, year after year after year!
Rhythm & Grace has extensive (really extensive) experience preparing the groom and bride-to-be (and wedding party, if you so choose) make the dance one to remember and several affordable wedding packages that will suit anyone's needs!
We have taught literally hundreds of couples stunning wedding dances that the feedback has been tremendous for. Don't trust your special day with a newer or inexperienced teacher and utilize our 25+ years of experience to make this worth your investments in time and money. You can come to us with your special song (or we can help you choose one best for you), what you hope to see (and we literally mean what you want to see on video years later - that's how important your event will be treated by us), maybe some idea of what you'd like the dance to look like, etc. Don't have a clue? Not a problem! We can start from below scratch and still exceed your expectations!
Your first lesson will begin with a brief interview where we establish the song, the dance that works best for that song, what your floor will look like, where the guests will be seated, what will you be wearing, and go from there. Generally (and most effective) we will choreograph your dance on the spot and get you doing it immediately.
There are some common misconceptions we have encountered over the years that are quite easily resolved,
- I don't know how to dance. No matter, if you can walk, we can get you doing a dance that you will be happy to perform.
- We only want a few steps to get through the dance. This is actually the hardest thing to do, it is much easier to learn pre-established choreography - this way one doesn't have to think on the floor and learn to lead and follow, interpret music and still try to perform (or even smile). Ideally, the most natural look is simply learning how to dance well. Often times, there is simply not enough time to accomplish that. The solution is to have a routine that is easily executed and memorized and repeat it a few times (the guests will never know). If we also make sure there are some nice picture moments for the photographer, you will find you end up with a dance that you'll enjoy on video and picture for years to come. It is this sort of strategy and years of teaching that make our students so satisfied with their final performance.
The moral of this story, don't sell yourself short. Let us help you get on and off the floor on your special day with style and grace!
Angel...I don't know how to thank for all of hours, hard work and patience with us in preparing Marie and I for our first dance at our wedding. Getting it right was extremely important to me and you kept pushing us and honing what was one of the more difficult things that I have ever done (never having properly DANCED before). We are getting SO many comments and we could have never accomplished this very important moment without you. Thank you again, a million times, for your expertise and guidance.
Just to add to this story, Larry is a wedding photographer extraordinaire, and his work is quite beautiful. You can see his own work here at http://spencerphotography.net/home and I hope to have a wonderful working relationship with him in the future. (They actually played the clip from the movie and danced with Gene and Debbie in the background as they did the dance.)
In all, they were a very happy couple with their number, and actually hired me to also teach a 30 minute group class to their guests as part of their reception, to get people up and dancing and to contribute to the period theme they were going for at their wedding.
It was an absolute honor to be part of this momentous occasion.
Thanks again, Larry and Marie!! Looking forward to keeping the love of dance alive in your hearts!-->
