To be honest yes, and this is why. You are spending your time and resources working on something for that one, special moment. So just to be sure that you have everything under control, you have to be certain you can dance in your dress! Our brides have said over and over again how valuable this free lesson is.

This really depends on your choice of music and how much time you want to invest in lessons and practice. That said, complex and “flashy” routines increase the risk of problems on the Big Day. Do you want to be stressed out about you both remembering the dance? Many couples embrace the reality that it’s possible to be really Classy, Sophisticated and Elegant with a less flashy dance that both of you are comfortable with.

We get asked this a lot. It’s a matter of how much practice you can do and how fast you learn. Look at it like this — you will need some practice time after every lesson to both reenforce what you have just learned as well as well as becoming comfortable and proficient dancing with each other. 
So if you practice the day after class, a 3 lesson “Bride In a Rush” package will take lesson1 + practice + lesson2 + practice + lesson3 = 5 days. And yes, we have many, many successful couples completing it all within 5 days, so that is about the minimum time required. If you are REALLY in a rush, we have done the entire thing in two days!!
