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:

  1. To look like they know what they are doing, and
  2. To enjoy their first dance, instead of dreading it.

(Great pictures and videos don't hurt either! 😉)

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Can we really learn our first dance in two or three hours?
If you complete this course as designed, taking plenty of time to practice and master the steps before moving on to the next section, then you can make a lot of progress in a short amount of time. Exactly how long it takes to complete this course will vary for different couples based on how quickly you pick up the concepts and how long you practice before moving on. This course includes what I typically teach in two or three 60-minute lessons which always include time for mastering each step before moving on. It does not take very long to move through the course if you are just watching the videos and reading the lectures without trying the steps or practicing in between. To MASTER the techniques (based on the average beginner couple) I recommend practicing 15-30 minutes a day after completing the course.
Don't we need a space to practice in, like a ballroom dance studio?
You don't need very much space in order to learn the steps and techniques in this course. My students practice in lots of different places -- their bedrooms, an empty dining room, the garage, their living room, the deck, out in the yard or driveway, an empty exercise room at the gym. This course was filmed in my 12' x 15' dance studio which is located in my home.
Can we really learn to dance online?
Yes, you really can! Here's why: learning to dance is both physical and to a large extent, mental. If you don't understand the concept as it's explained, seeing it demonstrated usually makes it all come together. And vice versa! Also, many people are visual learners, so videos and photos can be very helpful, even during in-person lessons. This course combines the teaching from the in-person lessons with added visuals to take your learning to the next level. You may even be surprised at how quickly you pick up the steps once you watch the videos and read the lessons.
Help! It's the week of our wedding and we haven't practiced our dance!
If it is the week of your wedding, I would recommend taking a few hours ASAP to first go through the course together with your partner. Then, plan to practice for at least 15-30 minutes every remaining day once you have finished moving through the course so you have more time to build muscle memory and smooth out the transitions between steps. Good luck! I believe in you!

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...
