Single or Extra Lessons

Of course, single or extra lessons are available after completion of a package and may be needed if you are not feeling quite ready. Perhaps you did not get to practice as much as you needed to, or perhaps your routine has become longer or more involved e.g. with the addition of another song into the mix. Single lessons after completion of a package are $89 each for 60 mins or $45 for 30 mins.

Payments

*We accept credit cards, debit cards and cash. Sorry, no checks. Cash payments eligible for a 5% discount.

Except for your very first appointment, all lessons must be paid for in advance to ensure the bookings are confirmed,

Packages:
Packages are payable in full at your first lesson. A deposit (minimum $75) is also acceptable at your first lesson, with the balance required by your second lesson. To ensure availability, package lesson times must be booked in advance – at least one at a time, or all if you are able to stick to a schedule. Package lessons must be completed within a 6 month time frame from the date of your first lesson, otherwise unused lessons will expire and no longer be valid (unless we have been notified of a change in your circumstances). If you have not made a booking or contacted us for a period of 6 weeks or more, your wedding package will also expire.

Cancellations:

If you give us less than 4 hours notice (but more than an hour) of a cancelled appointment, there is a cancellation fee of $35. If you give us less than an hour’s notice, or fail to show for your lesson, there is a cancellation fee of $60. As long as we are given a reasonable amount of notice – ideally 24 hours but at least 4 hours – we are happy to reschedule your appointment time without any penalty.

Refunds on package lessons:

There is no monetary refund on wedding package lessons if you are unable, or choose not to, continue with the lessons. We will instead credit you with a lesson voucher for the remaining lessons outstanding (which can be gifted to other people.) Please do not book a package, if you think you may not be able to fit in the included number of lessons.

House calls available in your home or office (add $20 travel cost)

Planning

Plan 3-6 months in advance to schedule rehearsal times and dates.

Song best practices:

*Choose a song that is meaningful to you as a couple.

*Pick music that has a steady beat that is easy to find.

*Please don’t go longer than 2-3 minutes maximum.

*Where in the program do you want your dance to be?

*Do you want it to lead off all the dancing for the whole evening?

*Do you want it to be right after your entrance to the reception and before dining?

*What makes sense to you?

Practice:
*Use the video provided, wear your shoes that you will have on, practice skirt provided.

D.J./ band:
Make sure they have a copy of the music and know when in the program the dance is. Write out an introduction for the MC everyone is on the same page.

Document:
Invite the videographer and photographer to view a rehearsal or the practice video so they can plan how to best capture the first dance.
