When people ask me about my favorite piece of wedding planning, I immediately smile and tell them it was our dance lessons. We took lessons with Emily in the weeks leading up to our wedding, when the stress levels of final planning and coordination, as well as stresses from our demanding careers were at an all time high. Emily was INCREDIBLY accommodating to the time slots my husband and I were available (usually on the later side during the week) and the second we got to the studio, I was able to let EVERYTHING roll out of my mind and relax. Our dance lessons were SO much fun and it was…

Professional, Patient, and Perfect Partners. Just a few words that to describe our experience with the Jersey City Ballroom. My husband and I wanted to kick off our wedding reception with a dance routine that would be memorable for both us and our guests. Our instructor Werner choreographed and coached us through two different styles that were both fun and challenging to learn. The entire team at Jersey City Ballroom was supportive and positive throughout our lessons and helped us overcome the fear of making mistakes. As a non-dancer, I was impressed how we quickly we were able to…

What Dance Should I Choose For My Wedding?

We usually base the dance on the song that you have chosen. Many couples choose a song that is special to them, a song that reminds them of each other or a song that both enjoy. Depending on your song and the type of first dance you would like to have, we will create a dance that fits your style, your song and the start of your lives together.

Below are descriptions of the most popular dances with song samples, but we teach many other styles too! We can even combine different dances or songs for a truly memorable first dance. Contact us today for a wedding consultation and find out which dances go with your song!

Toggle IconWhen are Wedding Dance Lessons held?

Wedding Dance Lessons are booked by appointment, we open until 10pm on weekdays and we also have weekend availability.

Toggle IconHow many lessons do I need for a wedding dance?

On average, a wedding dance can take anywhere from 5-25 lessons depending on each couple's dance experience, learning style and goals.

Toggle IconWhen should I start my Wedding Dance Lessons?

Typically 3-6 months prior to your wedding date is a good time to start, although as early as possible is always best! Schedules usually get very busy closer to the wedding and starting earlier allows you to enjoy learning to dance with your fiance and, of course, it makes your dancing look and feel more natural and intuitive for your big day.

Toggle IconDo you do just first dance lessons or other wedding dances too?

We do it all! First dance, father-daughter/mother-son dances, wedding party dances. We have even done mother-daughter, father-son, and parents of the bride/groom dances, we are very open minded. :)

Toggle IconAre you LGBTQ+ friendly?

Absolutely! Our studio is a safe space. We believe that love is love and are here to support you in your dancing with your loved one.

If you're dreaming of a choregraphed first dance, Jersey City Ballroom is the place to go! Scheduling was a breeze with the help of the lovely Carla and our choreographer Dylan was an absolute joy to work with. His magnetic personality and amazing sense of humor made us look forward to our lessons every week. He created a fun routine that allowed us to dazzle our guests, making our wedding that much more epic. I was actually quite bummed at the end of our last lesson as I didn't want them to end. Hopefully I can…

What a great experience! My new husband and I were fairly skeptical about taking dance lessons and doing a "formal" 1st dance at our wedding, but we could not be more pleased that we did. We wanted to keep our 1st dance authentic to who we are (without looking like fools), and Jersey City Ballroom helped us deliver on that goal! Dylan was our instructor and was truly phenomenal; he has the patience of a saint and the humor of a stand-up. We had so much fun during each lesson, and we ended up with a perfect 1st dance routine that…
