Wedding Dance Couple

Wedding First Dance Choreography

Congrats On Your Big Day!

With our “personally designed” private lesson programs, you’ll learn all you need to hold your own on the dance floor as well as be developing a dance partnership that you can share together for the rest of your lives! We specialize in first dance wedding choreography that is easy to remember and won’t become one more stress in your life.

Your First Dance…

This is the most special moment in your newly married life. It is the first wedding ritual you two will share as a married couple that you will continue to use and cherish together… it will remind you of the romance that brought you together to date and become engaged in the first place.

How Do We Pick That “Perfect Song?”

Just as weddings have become more unique, so have first wedding dances. Ask yourself, what song makes me think only of my fiance? What song makes us want to share that moment together? Though the traditional wedding waltz and foxtrot are still popular, today’s contemporary slow songs, Top 40′s music, and even Classic Rock, Rock and Roll, and Country music, all have dances associated with them. Find what you like, and we’ll do the rest. The newest trend… start with a traditional slow dance, and then cut it loose to a hot Salsa, Swing, or Tango! If you need some help finding songs, see our sample song list.

How Soon Before The Wedding Should We Take Lessons?

As soon as possible! Though you may think it should be last on your list, remember that only three things will stay with you after the wedding: your love, the rings, and your ability to dance. Take the time to do it right, not have it be “another thing we gotta do.” Though we often do it in less than a month, we suggest coming in around 4 to 6 months in advance of the big day. And then come for a touch up the week before. Having a theme wedding?.. How about even having us show the bridal party and your parents a thing or two? Don’t forget about the father-daughter and mother-son dance.

What Should I Look For In A Dance School?

How about a teacher that is a certified professional, and who specializes in wedding couples. You are at the right place. Promenade teachers teach more wedding couples than any other Orange County studio! We take every detail into account so that you can have the most memorable dance that the crowd will love, you can easily dance, and you can continue to share for years down the road. With your private lessons, we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee that you will be pleased with your final product!

Why Does Slow Dancing Always Look So Bad?

Your wedding dance doesn’t have to look like the Jr. Prom. With a great intro and ending, some fancy steps, the proper fame, and lead and follow, you can transform the dull hunched-over swaying back-and-forth into a beautiful, flowing demonstration of grace and romance. You’ll be amazed how easy and fun it is to learn the right way, and how fast you’ll be able to do it. Remember… this is what we specialize in!

What About The Other Stuff At The Reception?

So you like Alternative, Hip Hop, Top 40′s, Heavy Metal, Latin, or Country music? Not only can we show you the basics needed to make your song special, we actually suggest that you learn a variety of dances, so that you can dance to everything at the reception and beyond. How about a slow dance, some swing, some salsa? Where ever you go, you two can share your gift of dance! You have always said that you wanted to learn to dance, so your wedding is your excuse! Put in the investment that will pay dividends for the rest of your lives together.

Picked a song? Need a suggestion?

Since we specialize in teaching for weddings, we know that every couple and every wedding is different. We will take your strengths to make the best “show dance” we can. Bring your own song, or let us find something for you that fits your personality. We can help you find that perfect song just for you!

Promenade – A New Class of Dancing

Promenade dance instructors are professionally certified to teach you the right way! We know there is a difference between “dancing” and “taking dance lessons,” so we design all of our programs around each student individually to have you dancing at the level you desire in as short a time as possible… and look natural doing it!

Introductory Dance Lesson!

Everyone learns to dance for different reasons, so we offer you your first lesson dance evaluation for Only $20! On that session we’ll teach you the basics to what you’d like to learn, and as well, your instructor will be able to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses based on how you learn. We can then help you to plan for where we can get you in the next few lessons, depending upon how good you would like to become or the event you are looking to learn for. We will personally design the course best suited for your goals and desires.

Private Lessons

Private lessons, the core to Promenade teaching, are the best way to learn. You will be able to learn at your pace and be given all the important techniques as you are ready for them. Private lessons allow you to develop a dance style that fits your personality, and work on various dances and styles at once so that you can hold your own in every social situation. Convenience is the greatest benefit of private lessons… we can schedule them as it fits your schedule… 10 AM to 10 PM, 7 days a week! Call or email now to schedule your first session!

Group Classes

Groups classes suppliment your private instruction. They allow you to practice the steps you’ve learned in a controlled environment, work on your lead and follow with various partners, and get that practice time “you keep saying you’re gonna do.” Typically we have at least one beginning, intermediate, and advanced class in each different style (like latin/salsa, swing, ballroom, country) each week. Our schedule varies on a monthly basis, so call or email today to see how soon we can get you started! Want a fun way to get started in a group class atmosphere… Check out our Crash Course In Social Dancing Series!

Practice Parties and Nightlife

Practice Parties are our “battle conditions” at the studio. You can come to socialize and give your steps a try before going out on your own. Our teachers are there to help you with your floorcraft and just “let loose” in a dance studio/lesson atmosphere. We typically hold one practice session per week, and once a month we even make an event out of it… like even bring in Live Musicians or donating procedes to local charities! Call or email to find out when the next one is!

But there is no need to wait for a Promenade Event to start using your dancing… Social dancing is everywhere! Once you learn to dance, you’ll find that you are using your dancing places you never expected… weddings, street fairs, bars, concerts, and parties!

DanceSport Competitions and Shows

Promenade continually promotes competitive level social dancing (DanceSport) not only through an expertise in instruction, but through sponsorship of DanceSport shows, exhibitions, and lecture/coaching series’ by the the top competitive dancers of today.
