"Our experience with this dance studio was the absolute best!! My husband was not a dancer two years ago, and was extremely skeptical about going to dance class. Now, he's as excited about hitting the dance floor as I am! We asked Garincha to choreograph our first dance at our wedding and it was an amazing process - start to finish. He teaches in such a thoughtful, purposeful, and patient way, that instantly made both my husband and me feel comfortable, while also having fun. Every week, we'd look forward to going to dance class to learn the next part of our dance. The dance was a crowd-pleaser, and unforgettable component of our day. Our wedding was over a year ago and people STILL talk about our first dance - and it was only possible due to Garincha's amazing instruction. Even after our wedding, we continued taking lessons just because we love it so much. We recommend this dance studio to everyone we know!" E.H.

5. How Long Should Our First Dance Be?
We recommend keeping your first dance to about 2-2.5 minutes long. If a couple wants to dance to a medley of a few different songs then it shouldn't be longer than 3 minutes.
6. Should I Bring My Wedding Shoes To Wear During My Dance Lessons?
Wearing you wedding shoes during your dance lessons isn't necessary until the last few lessons before the wedding. We recommend getting the basics under your feet first, then practicing in your shoes closer to the wedding day.
7. Can We Incorporate Multiple Styles Of Dance Into Our First Dance?
Yes, you can absolutely incorporate multiple styles of dance into your first dance routine, especially if you want to dance to a medley of a few different songs. Incorporating multiple styles is beneficial because you will be able to use your dancing more after the wedding is over. Please know that the more dance styles/song choices you incorporate, the more time and preparation you will need to feel prepared for the performance on your big day.
