As we say all the time, “We love our wedding couples!” As a tribute to some of our favorite dancers, we are going to begin chronicling the first dance journey. From the time a couple comes into the studio for their Wedding First Dance consult to the last lesson of tweeking the dance right before the big day, we see beautiful stories of love and expression.
Couples come in nervous and their expectations of themselves are low. We often hear, “Just keep us from falling on each other,” or “I can’t keep a beat,” or “I’m hopeless when it comes to dance.” After that first consult with us at Prestige Ballroom Dancing, the comments are already starting to change. “Wow! We can do this!” “This is going to be so much better than I imagined!” “I can do the dip at the end?!?”
As the instructors work with the couples to build the steps and look that the soon-to-be newlyweds now imagine, we see couples learn to work with each other in ways they haven’t before. We find that our couples enjoy the lessons as much for the private time they are getting to share away from the craziness of life and wedding preparation as they do for the dancing. Over the course of the lessons, we see awkwardness turn to grace in more ways and places than on the dance floor.
These stories and experiences are so moving to us that, with the permission of the couples, we want to share them with you. So, stay tuned! And, if you want your First Wedding Dance to be a part of this journey, sign up foryour wedding consultation today!
You’ve worked hard over the years to give her the life you always wanted, and you succeeded. She’s bright, well educated, and successful. Now she’s met that special someone and will soon be creating a home of her own and carrying on your legacy. On that special day, she wants to shine in every way possible—a beautiful dress, a glorious location, wonderful food, and dances around the ballroom floor. After walking her down the aisle, you have a few more moments to hold your precious little girl during the Father/Daughter dance. Make it perfect!
During the reception, the First Wedding Dance is followed by the Father/Daughter dance. The perfect Father /Daughter dance begins with dance lessons 90 days before the big day. New dancers, especially those new to partner dance, need a healthy dose of repetition and practice. If you give yourself (and each other) the time and space to learn, your Father/Daughter dance will complement the Wedding First Dance with style and grace.
During your first visit to Prestige Ballroom Dancing, not only will you have a fun time, you will have many special moments with your daughter. Your instructor will also introduce you to the basics of wedding dance, listen to your ideas about the reception, and help you craft a Father/Daughter dance that works smoothly with the Wedding First Dance. At the end of your wedding consultation introductory dance lesson, you will have a clear idea of what your Father/Daughter dance will look like, a plan to get there, and the confidence to help you look fabulous.

The venue is booked. The dress is fitted. The flowers are picked. The catering menu is ordered. Everything seems to be going according to plan—until you realize you haven’t learned your PERFECT FIRST WEDDING DANCE—t he few glorious (or disastrous) moments that will last well beyond the day! The cake will be eaten, the dress will go into storage, the flowers will wilt, and the tuxes will return from whence they came, but the time you two will spend learning your perfect wedding dance— time that will begin with lessons together months before the wedding –will remain one of your most treasured memories, even after many years.
Your perfect first wedding dance is the joining of your two unique personalities to create one beautiful expression of your love and commitment. To experience your perfect first dance, you— as a couple –should seek lessons at least 90 days before the big date. If you, like the hundreds of other couples who learned their Wedding Dance at Prestige, can open up your calendars during the time you are learning to dance, the impossible becomes possible! New dancers, especially those new to partner dance, need a healthy dose of repetition and practice. If you give yourself (and each other) the time and space to learn, your first dance will wow your guests and be a smashing success!
During your first visit to Prestige Ballroom Dancing, not only will you have a fun time (think—date night), your instructor will also introduce you to the basics of wedding dance, listen to your ideas about the reception, and help you craft your ideal wedding dance . At the end of your wedding consultation and introductory dance lesson, you will have a clear idea of what your wedding dance will look like, a plan to get there, and the confidence that you will look fabulous together, in your first public presentation as Husband and Wife!

The Showcase is Over
The Showcase is over but we had a blast! Our Emcee for the night Tammy was wonderful! There was a lot of dancing and smiles! The performances were amazing, and we had a great crowd! We had routines ranging from Bolero to Viennese Waltz and song choices from Backstreet Boys to Dean Martin.
