See below to find out about Wedding Dance Choreography!  I love helping couples prepare their first dance. 

Dance lessons give you style, posture, poise, balance and confidence, while building a skill which sustains a lifetime of enjoyment. Meet new people, get great exercise, and have a wonderful time as you learn to dance! No matter what your goals, I am committed to helping you attain them!

Enjoy a truly private lesson in my 400 sq. ft. personal studio (seen in the photos on the My Private Studio page), which can fit up to 8 couples (depending on dance style). The custom dance floor is padded with a layer of cork for comfort and ease of movement.  You will learn in a dedicated space with dedicated music. Learning to dance here is a completely individualized experience, tailored to your preferences and goals. I also teach group classes at Dance Boulevard in San Jose.

Each lesson is a 50 minute session tailored to your specific needs.
