LOCATION

Home

If you have space, lessons can take place in the comfort of your own home! Clients often move living room or basement furniture to create a pseudo dance floor. Not sure how much space you need? Most dance floors are relatively small and most wedding dress restrict movement, so we don’t need a ton of room to create a great routine. Around 300 square feet is recommended. 

**Please note if your lesson is in zone 3, there is an extra $15 travel pay. There is no travel pay for zones 1 & 2. Please refer to the Translink zones here.

 

Studio

If you do not have the space, or would be more comfortable at a studio, Alex will find a studio that works for you. There are plenty of dance and fitness studios across the lower mainland. We will find one near your home or work that is in your budget. If you have a gym membership, some gyms will allow studio rentals through them.

**Please note studio rental fees are subject to each studio. This is not included in your lesson fees.

 

FAQs

 

Why have dance lessons?

Alex offers a variety of options from emergency one offs lesson packages. Whether you are looking to avoid the awkward shuffle, or want to impress your guests with a full routine, Alex will ensure you both leave feeling confident and prepared for your big day. 

How far in advance should we start our lessons?

1 - 3 months in recommended to allow for practice time between lessons. Some couples prefer to start earlier and some realize last minute they need an emergency lesson. No matter your situation, Alex will do her best to make you comfortable and confident. 

How many lessons will we need?

This question is asked often and is tricky to answer. The short answer is everyone learns are different speeds and there is no way of knowing until you've had your first lesson. As a rule of thumb, if you just want to learn some basic steps, 2 lessons in recommended. If you want a proper routine, most couples take 4 lessons. If you want a show stopper medley, 6 lessons is comfortable. There are always exceptions to these rules.

Where are the lessons?

Alex is based in Vancouver, Canada. Her business is mobile! Please see location options here.

We have no dance experience. Will we manage?

Yes! Many couples self proclaim to be terrible dancers with no rhythm or experience but are flying across the dance floor in a matter of lessons.

What song should we use?

Many couples worry about which song to chose and if it will be alright to dance to. Alex always suggests you pick a song that is meaningful to you. If you have a specific dance style in mind, Alex can give a few suggestions as well. 

What should we wear?

What every you feel most comfortable in. It is recommended that you wear the shoes you will be wearing on the big day, or heels of a similar height, so you feel confident in them. Don't worry about the dress. We will discuss how restrictive it is during the lesson and Alex will keep this in mind during choreography.

My Fiancée is nervous. What can I do?

It's very normal for one partner to feel nervous about the experience. Alex is friendly and warm and will put them at ease. The first lesson is always the hardest, but everyone always comments on how much more fun it was than they expected! They will be dancing the night away in no time. 

 

What happens if I have to cancel or change our lesson?

TESTIMONIALS

Henrietta & Andrew - 8 Lessons

 

"Alex was THE BEST!  We had over 200 people at our wedding and the prospect of dancing in front of them all was utterly terrifying.  Not only did Alex teach us the perfect routine to our favourite song, she also taught us so many useful dance moves that we were able to use during the rest of the evening (and continue to use!).  Our guests loved our first dance; they couldn’t believe we could manage it!

 

Lessons with Alex were so easy and fun - she was consistently punctual, efficient and productive, but also gave us time to work on any fears and helped us out with individual areas we were struggling with.  It was so convenient having her come to our flat, and we were able to practise everything in our small space with her guidance, even the lifts!

 

By the end of the lessons we were so relaxed and confident that the dance went flawlessly on the night - leaving us free to notice our guests’ applause and cheers!  It was great having one less thing to worry about.

 

We don’t hesitate to recommend Alex - you won’t regret having her teach you your wedding dance - after all the most photographed/taped/watched of your life!

 

THANK YOU ALEX!"

Danuta & Tim - 4 Lessons

 

"A huge thank you to Alex for teaching us, two complete novices, our amazing first dance routine!  Alex was so patient with us and not at all phased by our lack of experience and two left feet, or when I broke my knee 6 weeks before the wedding. Alex made the lessons fun and was so encouraging, she was even able to work around the injury and choreograph a truly unique dance routine! Our guests absolutely loved it and were amazed that we managed to complete a dance, let alone all the spins and lifts involved. It was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding and we could not recommend Alex highly enough!" 

Susanna & Dan - 2 Lessons

 

"We signed up to dance lessons before our wedding because we knew we really needed them (!) but what we didn't expect was how much fun we would have. Alex was a fantastic teacher - very easy to get along with, patient and constructive in her feedback, and encouraged us to try some more ambitious moves whilst ultimately letting us decide what we felt comfortable enough to include. The routine she choreographed was great, and most importantly, it gave us the confidence to really enjoy our first dance at the wedding!"
