Wedding Dance Lessons

My wife and I decided to take dance lessons for our upcoming ceremony. I was extremely nervous due to the fact that I have never participated in dance lessons of any kind and definitely dance with 2 left feet. We are on our 3rd lesson and Gonzo has been extremely patient with me. I now have confidence and am getting more in tune with the lessons. I will definitely recommend Gonzo to anyone looking for dance lessons.

Wedding Dance Lessons

Gonzalo is an expert dance instructor who brings years of experience and a fine tuned art to his students. He’s very understanding and during the first couple of lessons really takes to heart what the students ask for, in our case a choreographed first dance routine for our wedding. Over the course of the next few lessons through evaluating the students strengths and weaknesses Gonzalo came up with a beautiful yet achievable dance routine set as a goal for his students. Throughout the course he pays attention to the fine details that the students may not realize are important but helps them to master the intricacies of whatever dance they are partaking in so that by the time they are done with the course, they are comfortable and confident with their dance routine. We would definitely recommend him to any couples wanting to take dance lessons and if they need an instructor for wedding dances.

Gonzalo was so nice, patient and professional when he helped me and my fiance practice some ballroom moves for our wedding's First Dance. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a great dance instructor!

Gonzalo is absolutely amazing! We booked a session for our first dance and he was able to take our dance from 0 to 100. I have a background in dance and choreography, but not ballroom, and he was able to help us finish choreographing the whole dance in the first session! We loved our session so much we booked a second one and he absolutely delivered. He helped us take our choreography and really make it personal for our wedding. He is extremely knowledgeable and makes great suggestions for any level. His technique is fantastic and really understands the dynamic of the couple he works with and the vibe of the piece. He is also extremely respectful and professional. I Highly highly recommend booking a lesson with Gonzalo for any first dance needs, or a fun date night!

My husband and I have taken dance lessons off and on the past few years and after just one lesson with Gonzo we’ve already made improvements!! He has a very professional, stylish and laid back approach and the way he explains and teaches the movements really clicked with us. Most importantly, he makes dancing fun which is what it’s all about! We are excited to see how much progress we can make with Gonzo and plan to see him regularly. Definitely recommend!

FAQs

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

    I always seek to improve myself with lessons from teachers of various fields relating to movement and art. So I am knowledgeable about almost all aspects of how people think and see themselves in move across space. I have become an expert at walking with good posture and poise. We take these three for granted so studying them is a must if you want to dance well

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I love the feeling I have when I am lost in the moment and I am moving with the music. So as early as I can remember I wanted to dance. Teaching dance was just another way to keep dancing as much of time as possible. I have never had any other full time job.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have trained dancers from all walks of life. I teach children and senior citizens and everyone in between and at all skill levels, from the most novices to professionals. I have not met anyone that could not learn to dance no matter how clumsy they felt at the start because they all respond well to the positive reinforcement I am able to convey.
