If you want a choreographed dance for your wedding or event do not use Bud, however, if you want to learn to dance the RIGHT way this is the right person for anyone. He is an awesome instructor, I feel that these lessons are timeless and we will be using them for years to come, not just for our wedding. Do not pass the opportunity up to learn from this dance teaching expert. We will probably use him later just for fun because we had fun learning from him.

We cannot say how grateful we are of Bud! I sprained my ankle three weeks before our wedding and was doctor recommended to cancel one appointment but went for our last one.Bud not only stayed late and taught us an ankle friendly, beautiful dance but then offered to see us again on his free time days before our wedding to help us one more time.He is beyond excellent at teaching dance with more years of experience than Ive been alive!He is absolutely hilarious and has become our friendHe is generous with a beautiful little studio I could not recommend him more for dance lessons!!

We took dance lessons with Bud to prepare for our wedding. Our goal was to look confident and have fun. Three lessons with Bud and we were ready. He is kind in his approach and specific in his instruction. He provides targeted feedback and asks lots of questions to make sure you feel good about the steps. I love that he doesn't teach you a choreographed routine, rather he shows you a series of steps, turns and spins that the two of you can work on together. It was tough to allow my fiance to truly lead, but we've had a great time working with Bud and are excited to show off our moves at our upcoming wedding. Even my fiance, who doesn't usually love to dance had a great time. It was a nice way to connect during the wedding planning process.

Where do I even start? My (now) husband and I only wanted to do a dance class for fun- we know we wouldn't be able to learn a whole dance in one lesson the week of our wedding (but we tried)! We picked the perfect guy to have fun learning to dance with without even knowing! Bud was personable, funny and a great teacher. After attending one lesson we wish we would of had time to do more! Highly recommend!

Your First Dance by Bud Walters was exactly what we needed to prepare for our first wedding dance. Bud was a patient teacher and not only taught us the fundamentals for our first dance but also gave us tips to make it easier to get along and be patient with one another on the dance floor. He was great about taking different approaches and helping us learn in different ways. Bud was VERY reasonably priced and make our private lessons worth every minute! We would highly recommend Bud if you are looking for a laid back way to impress your guests on your wedding day and grow stronger as a couple!!

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

    Pricing is based on ONE full hour lesson. No credit cards.

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

    Teaching a man to lead and woman to follow is a must!. Starting out slowly with simple basics and fewer steps so the process is understood. No pressure and have a lot of fun and patience.

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

    Being a professional actor and teaching modeling helps having a good eye for details.
