My now husband and I had the privilege of taking dance lessons with Tais Zhukova for our wedding first dance. Over the course of about 5 lessons, Tais choreographed the perfect dance for our abilities and to our selected song. Neither of us had much dance background, and Tais was always patient and willing to work with us until we mastered the choreography. She herself is an incredibly talented dancer and is able to break down each move to make it easy for anyone to learn. Tais made each class fun and enjoyable, and my husband and I genuinely looked forward to each lesson. Our first dance turned out perfect and exceeded all expectations! Overall, such a great experience and would recommend Tais to any couples!

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • Slow Dance • No, I do not have choreography in mind • Beginner • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

I cannot recommend Tais enough! She truly deserves all five stars and more. My experience with her as our dance instructor was absolutely phenomenal. From the moment I reached out to her with the idea of incorporating a Bridgerton-inspired dance into our wedding first dance, she was enthusiastic and supportive. Tais exceeded all expectations. Our first dance was a spectacle! Inspired by Bridgerton, it was elegant, graceful, and utterly captivating. The guests were mesmerized, and the pictures turned out stunningly beautiful, capturing every moment of our enchanting performance. Tais's patience and professionalism were remarkable. She meticulously guided my husband and me through the intricacies of ballroom dancing, turning novices like us into confident dancers. Many of our guests were astonished by how well we danced, all thanks to Tais's exceptional teaching skills. Beyond her expertise, Tais brought joy and fun to our dance lessons. She made the entire experience enjoyable, and we looked forward to every session. Even after our wedding, I would schedule additional lessons with her just for the sheer pleasure of it. Tais, thank you for making our wedding day truly memorable. Your talent, dedication, and warmth made all the difference.

We had so so much fun working with Tais to learn a first dance for our wedding. We could not have asked for a better instructor—she has such expertise but makes it accessible. Learning from Tais was one of the highlights of our whole wedding experience and we’d happily recommend her to anyone looking for lessons.
