    Q How many lessons do I need?

    That depends on what you want! Everyone's wants and needs are a little bit different and our lessons are customizable so you get the most out of each lesson and you look the best dancing on your big day!

    If you are just looking to avoid the awkward "Middle School Sway", and want some moves to help you feel confident on the dance floor, then all you need is ONE 45 minute lesson. Yes, you read that right! With one private lesson, you will be well on your way to creating a beautiful first dance!

    Looking for something choreographed? Well, you will need more lessons, anywhere between 3 - 5 lessons is typical. Let's chat and figure it out!

    Our most popular package is our 3 pack, which will allow you to split up lessons as you wish, maybe one for your first dance, one for the father/daughter dance, and one lesson for the mother/son dance -- just a thought!

    Q Where are lessons held?

    Lessons can be held in Dani's in-home studio in Hamburg, or for an additional fee, she can do a house or venue visit.

    For larger parties (group classes for bridal parties and such), First Dance Lexington has relationships with multiple studio spaces to rent in town.

    Q How do I convince my fiancé to take dance lessons with me...

    1. EVERYONE's eyes will be on your when you are dancing. Give them something interesting to watch -- not the boring "middle school sway"
    2. All you need is ONE lesson to make a HUGE difference!
    3. Your photographers will thank you! By adding some simple moves to your first dance, you give your photographers many more opportunites to capture the first dance! (Usually, if you are just doing the "middle school sway" you will be chatting the whole time and all your pictures will have your mouths open...)
    4. No one well will be in the studio. No one (other than the instructor, and maybe her puppy) will be watching, making it the perfect environment to face your fears and learn something new together!
    5. All in-home lessons are BYOB! Give us a heads up before hand and we will have glasses ready for you!
