My (now) wife and I wanted to do something special for our first dance at our wedding but didn’t really know where to start. We finally decided to take some dance lessons and that’s how we found Alex. Alex, however, offers much more than just lessons. She choreographed a beautiful dance routine to the song we chose and guided us through it each week at her studio/home. We worked on the routine for 8 weeks and it was one of the things I most fondly remember about the time leading up to our wedding. The dance Alex choreographed was the perfect mix of challenging and fun. She is a passionate, knowledgeable and patient instructor who really wanted our first dance to be something special. After working with Alex and practicing on our own for 2 months the big day finally arrived. We were nervous but well prepared and we nailed the routine! Our first dance was one of the highlights of our wedding and our guests were blown away by the whole thing. There’s “oohs” and “ahhs” on the video and lots of applause. It’s something we will never forget and it made our wedding that much more special. Adding that something extra-special was thanks to Alex. The wife and I highly recommend her as a dance instructor, choreographer and all around lovely human being. Thank you, Alex!Jul 14, 2018
When my husband and I went to Alex to learn a dance for our wedding day, she had her work cut out for her! Neither of us had any dance experience but figured if we had to dance in front of a hundred some people, we may as well give it our best effort. Alex choreographed a dance to our song that was way beyond anything I ever expected to be able to do, and taught it to us in just 5 lessons. :-) I felt like I was dancing with the stars on our wedding day! And for all the guys out there, my husband was not looking forward to the whole dance thing, but ended up having a ton of fun. And now we're even talking about what type of dance lessons to take next! Alex was awesome! We highly recommend her to anyone wanting to nail their First Dance!May 26, 2017Verified
Alex is a phenomenal teacher! She listened to what we wanted for our first dance and created the most amazing dance. We had so much fun each week and have plans to return to Alex for lessons "just for fun" in the future. We received so many compliments from our guests after the wedding about our dance; they were definitely not expecting all the lifts and dips we had in our choreography! We would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a memorable first dance!Oct 31, 2016Verified

I'm so glad to hear it went well, Ken. Send me pictures!
My husband and daughter went to Alex for help with their father/daughter dance for her upcoming wedding. Alex did an amazing job! She was well prepared and not only was a great teacher, but also listened to their ideas and suggestions and incorporated them into their dance. What a fun experience! We highly recommend her!Oct 1, 2015Verified

- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common type of job I do is wedding first dance instruction with choreography. But I also teach father/daughter and mother/son dances. A well-choreographed first dance will make the couple look and feel natural dancing together; will include basic steps, turns and dips that highlight the special parts in the music; and will be fun to perform and to watch.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I am proud of all my students, but I usually feel the most proud when I have a couple that has never danced together or a couple that struggles at the beginning and then they turn around and pull off an amazing first dance. It makes me so happy to hear that it turned out perfectly and all the guests were impressed.
