Wedding Dance Lessons in NYC

The biggest day of your life deserves a dance that is special, spectacular, flawless and stress-free. 


Wouldn't you agree?

When Should We Start Dancing?

Private lessons are the most efficient way for you to learn your dance well in a short amount of time. For example, if you are on a tight schedule and your wedding is less than 3 months away, a two–month intensive series of private lessons can quickly bring you and your fiancé(e) up to dancing speed. 

​I typically recommend preparing your wedding dance as early as possible, 4-5 months prior to the big day. An early start will give you more time to become familiar with dance steps and dancing with each other. We'll also have more time to polish other items related to your wedding dance including framework, presentation, and timing.


If you have some time before your wedding, say, more than 5 months out, a round of group lessons, followed by a short series of targeted private lessons can be very helpful. The group lessons will help introduce you to social dancing (the cake) and the private lessons will be the finishing touch (the icing).

Which Dance Should We Choose?

Whether you choose a traditional dance such as the Waltz, or a more contemporary dance such as the Hustle, the choice is entirely yours.

I offer instruction in the following dances: 

Waltz

Counted in the "1, 2, 3" pattern and danced either in box or traveling form.

Rumba

A slow, sultry dance, often danced with traditional Latin music.

Foxtrot

An elegant, graceful dance that goes well with American popular standards (think of songs in the style of Frank Sinatra or Ella Fitzgerald). 

Hustle

A versatile, fun dance that can be danced to a variety of popular music. 

Salsa

One of the most widely recognized dances with a distinct Latin beat.

East Coast Swing

A high-spirited, joyful dance that goes well with traditional swing/big band, pop, and rock songs. 

Country Two Step

A smooth Western dance that can be danced to Country music.

Cha Cha

A fun, exciting, sassy dance that can be danced to both traditional Latin and new ​popular club music. 

Contemporary

Do you have a popular or contemporary dance in mind that was not listed above? Let us know! We'd be happy to talk to you about other dance types.

What Song Should We Choose?

Have your heart set on dancing to a particular song? I'll listen to the song and make a dance style recommendation. 


​Undecided? I'll be happy to provide you with a variety of music/song recommendations/

Wedding dance Testimonials

We decided to take dance lessons with Simone for our first dance. We both had absolutely no previous dance experience and did not want to embarrass ourselves!


After the first lesson with Simone, we were both discussing how much fun it was on the ride home. We began practicing each night at home and it become something we looked forward to. After 3 lessons with Simone we both felt confident to conquer the dance in front of our family and friends.


We are so happy we took these lessons and would recommend them to anybody, experienced or not at all. Simone made the lessons fun and no stress! She is extremely easy to work with and made us feel at ease.


- Rachel and Andrew G.


Our biggest concern before taking dance classes with Simone was if we really needed private lessons to prepare for our wedding dance or if group lessons were sufficient. 


As it turns out, the group classes we enrolled in never deprived us from any value. Simone gave us personalized attention when warranted and encouragement when she saw us doing well. In other words, I felt we received good value from Simone.


I consider myself an introvert, therefore I am generally self-conscious and don't often put myself on display. Participating in the lessons was a good exercise in confidence building -- and everything else worked out just fine!


My favorite part of our dance lessons is getting personalized feedback. That definitely helped the learning process. Also, Simone switched in as a dance partner every now and then to solidify a movement or dance step. Being able to get a first hand feeling for what a move is supposed to feel like was really helpful.


If my best friend asked about taking dance lessons from Simone, I would say there is no downside to giving the class a try. I was able to learn enough rhumba to dance credibly at my wedding in 5 short classes. Simone helped me do that.


- Robert 


Simone is a wonderful dance instructor! My wife and I were complete beginners to dancing when we first met Simone. 


We had little sense of what we could do and what we wanted.  But Simone helped us choose a wedding song, develop a style, and perfect our dance. 


Without her, we would have been stumbling on the dance floor in front of our friends and family, but instead we were able to impress the crowd with our well-rehearsed and choreographed dance. 


We highly recommend her.  Thank you, Simone!



- Matt and Amanda D.
