Success Tips

  -Start lessons as soon as possible, don't let it become a stress as a last minute "to-do"

  -Can have you feeling ready in a month, however 2-4 months out is recommended.

  -How long should your song be?  If it is just the Bride & Groom dancing make the song 2-2.5 minutes long.  If you would like to invite

   family and friends to join you on the dance floor, the recommended length is the entire song or 3-3.5 minutes.

  -Videotaping, note taking, and question asking during lessons is welcomed and encouraged

  -Find a song that is meaningful and important to both the Bride & Groom

Tashina is the best dose of positive energy out there. If they could bottle how good you'll feel after spending time in her company, it would sell like hotcakes!
