Introduction: Your first dance together as a couple should be fun and memorable; let this experienced ballroom dance instructor help to make it so with success and ease on the dance floor! My name is Patrik Gallineaux and I have years of experience creating and teaching wedding dances. Whether you want to learn a whole routine or just a few easy steps, I can easily get you moving on the dance floor as a couple. I teach in a lovely studio in my luxury building on Sunrise Boulevard across from Holiday Park. I can help you choose the perfect song and type of dance that will fit your dress, size of dance floor, and your theme/chemistry together (foxtrot, swing, salsa, waltz, tango, nightclub 2-step, cha-cha, rumba to name a few). I even will help you edit your music if needed at no additonal cost. I am offering FULL HOUR lessons for only $75 per hour, and a five dollar per lesson discount is available for blocks of 5 lessons purchased at end of first lesson or in advance (package $350 total). My patience, knowledge, and enthusiasm guarantee a fun experience. I began teaching ballroom in 1998, with an early claim to fame as the featured in-home ballroom dance teacher in the documentary "24 Hours on Craigslist". In addition to teaching and choreographing, I have competed in both same-sex and traditonal ballroom dance, and have 3 decades experience in stage performance, production, and customer service. I am happy to answer any and all questions and provide additional information with zero commitment. I am fully vaccinated for Covid-19, and enthusiastically wish to comply with ALL student wishes for comfort and safety inclusive of mask-wearing, sanitizing, and social distancing. Have a FABULOUS day!

This was the best experience EVER! Had to talk my fiancé into this and she is so happy I did! I would highly recommend Patrik to anyone - beginner or advance. Patrik has incredible patience, skill, an amazing personality and everything you could possibly want in a dance instructor.

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • What my teacher recommends • No, I do not have choreography in mind • No song preference • No experience • My home, venue, etc.

What really sets Patrik apart was his authenticity and obvious passion for teaching, especiallu us as a wedding couple with very little dance experience. Patrik took the time to understand us as individuals, our strengths, and exactly what we were looking for on the dance floor. In only 6 and a half lessons he was able to take us from zero to heroes, with custom choreography, directions, and he even edited our song to a shorter length that we wanted at no additional cost. We both appreciate his help in makeing sure we were 100 percent prepared to really enjoy our first dance and the memories our family and freinds have forever, HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend!!!! ~Kimi and Jake

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

    We offer a five dollar per lesson discount for packages of five lessons purchased in advance or after completion of first lesson.

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

    Normally we invite an initial phone or video call conversation to answer questions and discuss goal and any specific needs. It is very important to ensure each new person or couple feels 100 percent comfortable, excited, and taken care of all-around for a fun and relaxing experience.

    BFA Musical theatre dance, accredidation from the NDCA (National Dance Council of America), and 30 years experience teaching, choreoographing, event production, and customer service. I have taught and choreographed for over 1,000 wedding couples in my life. And growing up in my mother's dance studio (open to this day) was pretty educational!
