Learn a Romantic and Instagram-Worthy First Dance for Beginners
Stop dreading your first dance and learn a simple and romantic wedding dance that you'll remember forever
Let's be honest, you want at least one good picture of you dancing with your new husband or wife without looking like you are at your first prom. 🤦♀️
Most couples that I work with want just two things from their first dance:
- To look like they know what they are doing, and
- To enjoy their first dance, instead of dreading it.
(Great pictures and videos don't hurt either! 😉)
So what are you actually going to learn in this course?
I'll teach you...
- How to break away from the dreaded "prom sway,"
- How to twirl your partner gracefully,
- How to move around the floor to your first dance song,
- How to dip (without falling over!), and most importantly,
- How to put it all together to create a simple, romantic dance that will impress your guests and result in multiple Instagram-worthy moments.
Did you know you can learn a beautiful first dance in just two or three hours?
This course covers exactly what I teach in two to three private lessons distilled down into a quick moving and easy-to-navigate course complete with video instruction, photo illustrations and all the troubleshooting notes you could ever ask for.
That means, even if you waited until the last minute, you can still learn these simple and beautiful moves to use on your wedding day.

Unlike other online wedding dance lessons that make you learn a bunch of steps you'll never need or use, this course teaches the essentials of a beautiful first dance and nothing more.
There is no complicated choreography to stress over, just steps and techniques that will make you look like you know what you are doing and make you look and feel more confident for your first dance.
I almost exclusively teach couples who have NEVER danced together (or separately) in their lives and you will get to learn the same tips and tricks I teach them every day.
If they can do it, you can do it.
By using the exact same methodology and clear instructions that I use in my private, in-person lessons that have resulted in hundreds of satisfied students and five-star reviews, you will be transformed after the very first tutorial.
Even if it's the week of your wedding, you can still learn how to dance. Don't wait any longer...
