Wedding Lessons

Discover the Romance of your First Dance


Learn the secrets of leading and following, discover how easy dancing can be, and wow the crowd with your new skills.  Dips and turns?  Surprise ending?  Something more simple?  We've got you covered, whatever your style.

Bring your music, and we'll create custom choreography that fits your personalities, music, and reception theme.

We recommend starting your wedding lessons at least 2 - 3 months before your wedding day, but are happy to help you with last-minute preparations.  Wedding lessons are 45 minutes long, and taught in shared dance instruction space.  (Private space is subject to availability and an extra charge.  Please inquire with Studio 22 staff for more details.)

You'll discover that taking dance lessons gives you time to connect and helps relieve the stress surrounding wedding preparation.

Health & Safety

Touchless bathroom features
Our beautiful new bathrooms have been completely renovated and equipped with hands-free door openers, touchless faucets, touchless soap dispensers, and touchless paper towel dispensers.

Air filtration system with medical-grade PECO technology
The PECO technology and filtration system has been designed to capture and destroy airborne viruses and meets the rigorous performance criteria outlined in FDA guidelines for use in helping destroy the COVID-19 virus. Four of these devices have been added to the studio for air purification.

HEPA medical-grade air filtration system
Why stop at one air filtration system when we can provide two? These units will scrub the air every 15 minutes. The high-efficiency air filters remove 99.97% of particles down to the 0.1 micron, including bacteria and virus carriers. Five of these units have been added to the studio to help clean the air.

Anti-microbial door openers
We’re adding custom Microshield arm pulls to all interior doors in the studio, including ballrooms & bathrooms. These handles can be opened with your forearm and have an anti-microbial coating to inhibit the spread of germs and bacteria.

Hand sanitizing stations
Located at the entrance of the ballrooms for your convenience.

6-foot distancing floor markers
As a way to help maintain a safe distance awareness, we have floor markers placed around the studio.

Thank you so much for all your help and patience in helping to teach my husband and I a great first dance for our wedding.  We blew our audience away. Everyone was expecting a good dance, but we really surprised and even entertained our guests.  They were saying it was the best reception they had ever attended. :)   I had my heart set on wanting to perform a latin dance for our first wedding dance.  Although I had my worries about my husband learning a new style of dance altogether, my worries were quickly dissipated after the first few dance lessons.  You really were able to reach us both in our own unique ways of learning and when the big day came, we danced cohesively together.  Thanks for helping us to make our dream wedding complete.  I will never forget finishing our first dance as man and wife, and hearing the audience roar with applause.

Thank you so much for teaching Alice and I how to dance!!!  It was spectacular!!!  Our friends, family, and vendors were shocked by our dance and said it was the best dance they have ever seen at a wedding!  Alice and I practiced very hard after our last lesson and even two days before at West Lake Village Inn, where our wedding was held.  Our friends loved the turns, the choreography and it really lifted up the entire night!  Thanks again!!!

Our dance turned out awesome at our wedding!!!  Thank you so much for all of your help with our Tango.  Everyone has been talking about it.  I think all the run throughs you did with us got our nerves out of the way.  We really got into in when people stared cheering.  Thank you for making our first dance a lifetime experience to remember.

I found Studio 22's website (good website by the way) and signed me and my now-husband up for a Wedding Package. In just 5 lessons, Michelle taught us some great moves, focusing on technique and the basic steps. Michelle is not only a super talented dancer but also a fabulous instructor. We had a lot of fun at our lessons, and ended up surprising everyone at our wedding when we broke into a salsa dance during our first dance. Thanks Michelle!

The dreaded "first dance" as a newly-wedded couple - something every woman sees as the romantic part of the evening, and some men view as the uncomfortable moment of the whole party.  But regardless how any couple feels about it, if they are looking at dance instruction for their first dance, it means that they care about how it looks.  In my case, and in Emily's as well, not only did we care about how it looked to our guests but how we felt doing it.  Emily was, to my relief, not interested in a completely scripted and choreographed number that had us blasting onto the dance floor with the heat and rocking emotion from something out of "Dirty Dancing."  Rather, we both agreed we wanted to come across as confident, have a simple routine that had a little class to it, was interesting, and most importantly was a dance the two of us could enjoy together...really!  Emily expressed not wanting to walk out on our dance floor and only "hip-swaying" to some cheesy slow song that had been written into the books of Greatest Pop Songs of the 90's.  I was realistic and knew that the more flashy the dance was, the more time in lessons and practice we'd need.  I was in the same boat as Emily - I wanted us to enjoy ourselves and be focused on each other rather than concentrating on steps, and I wanted us to have a simple and fluid dance that held some interest and was more than the "hip-swaying." 

After twenty minutes of searching through the internet, my results yielded a handful of instructors in the DFW area to choose from.  Sergey and Michelle's website stood out amongst the other instructors I had found.  Perhaps it was their age, the look they presented, the snap of pizazz I sensed...is it possible to radiate charisma through just a website?  In any case...sold!  I sent my only email inquiry to them, and heard back promptly from Michelle.

Michelle was our instructor for approximately seven or eight lessons spread out over five months.  I'll have to say my wife is very particular about things.  She's fickle on what people teach her cardio-boxing class; she likes so-and-so because he holds the mitts better; she doesn't like this person teaching her weights class because it's boring and the same routine; signing up for this couples group isn't meeting her expectations.  I was waiting for the day that Emily would say something about Michelle, but Michelle won the approval award.  Emily always walked out of dance lessons enthused and excited.  Michelle had a good approach when instructing Emily, and it was in a way that was specific and unique to Emily.  She also had a great way of teaching me in the way I could pick it up the fastest - bare-bones info and the facts, baby.  Just show me exactly what to do without all the fluff thrown in.  At the end of all our lessons, Emily and I both felt that we could have used more, but I still felt confident going into the wedding.  

So, what did we dance to?  Emily latched on to Michael Buble's "Save the Last Dance," and I found the track to be fresh, peppy, and brisk.  We decided to rumba to it, and spent most of our lessons solidifying our steps, working on some simple by interesting turns, and final touches.  At the end of all the lessons, I was actually getting jazzed up.  I was starting to feel like Emily and I could have been progressing and adding more flair to this simple but elegant routine.  Emily was all grins on our first dance as a couple.  I think she was actually thrilled.  (We didn't tell anyone we took dance lessons, so there may have been the expectation to "hip-sway."  :)  )  Wow, I was not prepared for the reaction we received from our guests.  At the end of the five months, I had starting thinking that maybe our dance needed more pizazz, but our guests seemed blown away.  A lot of compliments were given that night for our little routine.  And the best part about it was, Emily and I got a kick out of it more than they did.  We still smile when we look back at that night, and laugh more when we reminisce on all nights of practice we had together.  They can make for some goofy and funny moments.  Guys, sign you and your ladies up for dance lessons.  It will bring you closer.

Thanks Michelle & Sergey
