Dancing with your feet is one thing,
but dancing with the heart is another.

We know planning a wedding can be hectic, but dancing should be the most fun part of the process. Our friendly instructors teach in a supportive environment while staying true to you as a couple. We not only show you the steps, but most importantly, how to make your first dance look effortless and feel like a natural and joyful expression of your love for one another. Whether you're a timeless waltz, playful swing, or a sizzling salsa, our goal is for you to look and feel confident sharing your unique story on the dance floor.

Private Lessons

Learn to dance and spend quality time with your partner during this busy season. Connect with one another and explore the give and take of a meaningful partnership while having fun getting down to your music.

Our lessons are one hour, priced per couple, and includes exclusive use of our dance studio at no extra cost. This means you can learn in the comfort of our private studio without ever having to share the space or music with other students. We also offer basic song editing, video recordings of your lessons for practice, and professional performance tips (recovering after mistakes, posing for your photographer, making the most out of your dance floor, and how to best perform in your wedding dress and shoes). In general, we recommend starting lessons at least two months in advance to learn a routine. Make lessons your regular date night!

Wedding Workshops

If you're not looking to do a personalized dance, but still want a "crash course" right before the big day, then a workshop is for you. In this 1.5 hour group class we will introduce you to the minimal basics needed to complete a first dance. Our class sizes are small so you can learn in an intimate setting, get to know one another, and most of all, have fun!

Workshops are held at Symbolic Dance & Fitness in the Mission District at 672 So. Van Ness and 18th. Spaces are limited so please reserve your spot in advanced.

We look forward to meeting you! 

$75 per couple, pre-registration required
