Best Of All Dance has an outstanding reputation for bringing entertainment to weddings!
♦ 1/3 of our Wedding Programs are Bride & Groom Routines!
♦ 1/3 are Father & Daughter Dances or Mother & Son Dances!
(...a wonderful gift & precious one-on-one time between a parent & bride/groom).
♦ Parent Dances & Wedding Party Dances, make up the rest. We've even choreographed a Wedding Party Flashmob!
Best Of All Dance is so strong in this area, that wedding programs, make up almost 40% of our schedule each week! And no two Wedding Dances are the SAME!
Best Of All Dance Wedding Programs include choreography, practice time and music editing*. The length of a wedding program can be whatever you wish; but most people give us at least 10 visits. Your wedding is a special day and we take great pride in helping you look as good as you can!
The length of a wedding plan depends on many things:
♥ Style / Type of song,
♥ Type of Dance,
♥ How much time you are willing/able to try this,
♥ Your Individual Retention and
♥ How elaborate you wish to get.
When someone wants to do more than sway back-and-forth...there is NEVER a "standard" wedding program. Each wedding plan is customized according to your TIME, ABILITY and BUDGET. The greatest obstacle, to helping you look as good as you can, is usually TIME. Waiting to start 60 days before your event, is not the best idea if it can be avoided.
Before we start a wedding program, we need to meet for a consult & mini-lesson. Through this session, the teacher will be able to give you a realistic idea of what can & cannot be accomplished in the time frame you're able to give us. As long as you are comfortable with what the instructor discusses with you, we'd be happy to schedule additional lessons.
If possible, please try to bring the following with you:
♦ If you have your song picked out...PLEASE bring it with you on CD or IPOD
♦ If you can bring the dance floor dimensions of the reception hall, that would also be helpful.
♦ Please bring your calendars/schedule for the coming weeks.

Wedding Dance Entertainment?
Here's a challenge for you: set a timer during a "Dancing With The Stars" routine.
Most people are very surprised to realize, the routines are only ONE minute (... 1½ minutes at most)! Why? It's the reality of audience attention spans: Even with elaborate costumes, fancy moves, alternating camera angles, back-up dancers, stage sets, music dubbed into your living room (overriding audience chatter) and a 5 minute build-up describing the practice "drama", the performance cant hold your attention for longer!
From the perspective of your wedding guests, a couple that wobbles back-n-forth (doin' the "prom sway"), for 3-5 minutes, is not going to be the "movie scene" from your imagination. It can be a snooze-fest but, it doesn't have to be! Instead, you can let our instructors help you create a Bride & Groom Dance, a Father/Daughter Dance & a Parent Dance, that everyone has fun learning, is proud to dance and your guests enjoy watching! Learning a dance for your wedding, feeling the movement, seeing it improve and come together . . . the reward is in the journey, and not just the wedding day (though that's great too)!
When you look for help with your wedding, you consult an expert. Best Of All Dance instructors ARE experts! Our staff have been choreographing dance routines for Beginner Adults and Non-Dancers for more than 20 years! We can help you capture whatever mood you wish to create! And our wedding programs include music editing! Most routines are 2-2½ minutes but, we can keep the original song length too... if you prefer!
The Wedding Dances should be a 'bridge' from the ceremony to the 'party'. When planned, they provide momentum into the celebration phase of your reception!
You Cant Escape The Wedding Dance
You can't escape the Wedding dance. It's a long held tradition. There will be a crowd and there will be cameras. So... take the lessons! .
The lessons are FUN and make the VIDEO, fun to watch, for the rest of your life (as you know, people with cell phones will shoot video, whether you like it or not).
We can teach you a combination of steps or a short routine, whichever you prefer. Either way, the steps you learn, can get you through your wedding—and every other wedding, dinner dance, cruise, holiday celebration and covert spy operation you attend for the rest of your life. .

Music Editing & Choreography
Best Of All Dances’ music editor has more than 30 years experience mixing music for dance routines, events & night clubs. Most wedding songs can be edited in less than 5 hours and choreographed in the same amount of time. But, the amount of time we need to devote to either activity, is influenced by a great number of factors including the complexity of the music, the amount of lessons we have to work to with, how much a couple practices between lessons, etc. Even the best laid “plans” need to be altered as the routine unfolds. Since most couples attend at least 10-15 Private Lessons, wedding song editing & choreography is included in most wedding plans. Choreography &/or Music editing is not included, when the amount of time devoted to either activity, exceeds the number of lessons attended. For pricing info on lessons, please see our "couple dance" page.
