Wedding Dance Lessons

Gary is amazing!!! We are so glad we booked him for our dance instructor for our First Dance of our wedding. 1. We are not dancers!! Gary is able to teach dance in a basic level for beginners! At the end of each lesson we were able to put it all together and be more confident in our dancing moves. 2. We wanted to do 2 types of dances, 1 slow romantic ballad followed by a fast up beat show stopped. Gary made this happen!! 3. Gary is flexible, friendly, and fun! Thank you Gary for helping make our special day one we will never forget!!

It has been wonderful working with Gary! When I was searching for a dance instructor I felt like a beginner and he has given me so much confidence. I look forward to our lessons and working toward my goal of being able to dance pointe. He has been supportive, teaches with high expectations, and will break down what he is asking of me to ensure I am doing the steps correctly!

Wonderful coach! He helped us establish the basic steps for our first dance. It felt very romantic too! My partner can't dance and to create something beautiful and doable is magic!

Wedding Dance Lessons

We worked with Gary to help us coreograph our first dance. Working with him was INCREDIBLE. My husband has two left feet and no rhythm, like none (lol) and he was really insecure about dancing in front of people at the wedding. For our first lesson, Gary focused on dance basics and worked with my husband to ensure he understood certain movements and worked within his comfort zone. After our first lesson my husband was so excited to dance! He wanted to practice all the time and couldn't wait to attend lessons. Gary definitely helped his confidence in that area. He choreographed a beautiful, romantic dance for us and I would recommend him again and again. I almost want another excuse to work with him! He's professional, funny, and can work with you no matter your dance skill. Thanks Gary!

Gary helped us choreograph our first dance for our wedding. My husband and I had no idea how to dance. Gary taught us basic dances moves and was patient with us throughout our lessons. Gary is also friendly and professional. Our first dance turned out amazing, and our wedding guests were very impressed. All thanks to Gary! :) Definitely recommend him if you need dance lessons!!
