Frequently Asked Questions
What dance should we learn?
Our basic lesson packages will provide you with a beautiful dance choreographed to a song of your choice. We usually recommend Romantic Two Step for your dance. It is simple enough to learn in just a few weeks, but yet is elegant and very expressive. However, if you have another preference, we are happy to follow your lead. Others couples have chosen to dance the waltz, foxtrot, and even the sensuous Argentine Tango.
How much will it cost?
We recommend taking at least 6 weeks with one private lesson per week to learn your wedding dance, but we can schedule anything that suits your convenience and budget. Please call for pricing.
When should we get started?
The earlier the better. The more time you have on the dance floor, the more comfortable you'll feel on that special day. You'll also get this behind you so that you can concentrate on more important things as the day draws closer.
The bride and groom are not the only ones who dance at your wedding!
Why not bring the whole family and/or bridal party in for lessons!
Typically there are father/daughter and mother/son dances at the reception in addition to the bride and groom first dance. We can put together a special private group class for your family and/or bridal party.
Where shall we meet?
Sugar Rhythm teaches dance in San Jose, Santa Clara, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Stanford University, Menlo Park, San Mateo, Woodside, Sunnyvale, Fremont, Campbell, Los Gatos, and other nearby communities.
