For our wedding, my husband and I really wanted to have a choreographed first dance. Luckily, I found Marco through other brides, and it was a great decision. When we first met with him, we gave him an idea of how we wanted our first dance to be, and he delivered! He works very hard and takes good care of his clients to ensure that they are comfortable and confident with performing the choreography. In terms of scheduling lessons, we were on a bit of a time crunch due to our other duties, but Marco was so flexible with our schedule, and that really showed his commitment to his clients! He's friendly and personable, so he was great to work with.

Marco is a wonderful dancer, teacher and choreographer. My daughter was lucky enough to take classes with Marco for the last 3 years. He is very skilled and his classes are fun but he is firm when needed. He has a way of explaining dance in a way that is easy to understand. My daughter absolutely loved his class. I can't recommend Marco enough. Truly a great person and instructor.

We took dance lessons from Marco before our wedding and we believe it was one of our best decisions in planning our wedding. We both did not have any experience in dancing and Marco made the whole experience amazing for us in which we really enjoyed going to the classes. He was professional, easy to communicate with and work with. He always had a plan for each class and choreographed a great dance for us. In addition, he really valued our opinion when we would tell him we did not feel comfortable with a certain step so we would change it for us. Definitely recommend Marco for dance lessons - not only for wedding dance classes, we are also confident that he can teach anyone to dance a wide variety of styles.

We love Marco! He choreographed our first dance for our wedding earlier this month, and we’re so happy we found him. We had the best time! Our family was so surprised when we busted out a tango routine to Prince’s Kiss. Rehearsals were always fun! We learned so much and now that the wedding is over I’m looking for any excuse to come back lol.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The costumer is responsible for any rented space at a local studio. Usually $10-$20. I charge an additional fee for editing the couples’ music.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually have a first lesson as a sort of assessment or consultation. This way the client and I can see what their goals are or vision for their dance is. I teach them the basics so they can get their feet wet and see if it would be a good fit. From there I work very closely with them on what they envisioned for their first dance together. I really invite them in on the choreographic process to make sure THEY are comfortable and doing what they want. I never just want to just slap on my steps if they aren’t comfortable with them. I am very patient and work diligently and slowly with my clients, so they really feel that they are learning and able to digest the material. I want them to feel like DANCERS.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been dancing professionally for 12 years doing all kinds of dance, and teaching all kinds of ballroom for 6 years.
