In the 33 years worth of moments I’ve experienced on this planet, THIS is one of my absolute favorites ❤! The surprise father daughter dance my dad and I did at my wedding! We definitely didn’t go the traditional route, but instead we did something that was so very US! It included all of the songs that remind me of him and the incredible human/Dad that he is to me. AND my beautiful mom makes a star appearance too! Love you to the moon and beyond, Mum and Dad. I will cherish these five minutes on the dance floor (and the entire weekend) that I got to share with you, FOREVER! Special thanks to the oh so talented Robert Michael Films for capturing this special moment, and Matt Mancuso for sharing your amazing dance skills with us at You Can Dance Studio!”
Huge thanks to Katya, our wonderful choreographer and dance teacher, for our Father-Daughter wedding dance! A smashing success and highlight of my life. The combination of classic waltz and rough salsa moves were contrastingly spectacular, only to finish it with the inviting Shakira’s Hips Don’t Lie pop. Too bad we couldn’t squeeze the tango part as the dress, as you told us, would not work ;) We’re coming back for more! I am now known as a dancing sensation!
My wife and I took a series of 5 lessons with Matthew. He was great and helped us choreograph a first dance for our wedding reception. I have never danced before and Matthew really adjusted his training to my skill level (none). This was a super fun experience. The first dance went great. Highly recommend.
My fiancé and I took one group lesson and one private for our wedding. We loved the instructors and had so much fun even though we were both apprehensive. Irina the owner was so fabulous and great to work with. I want to go back just to take some lessons for fun. Thanks again!
My husband and I took our wedding dance lessons with Sasha. He was easy to work with and always ready to dance! He was willing to teach us until we got the choreography almost perfectly. He’s a great dancer, we laughed a lot and he always had a positive demeanor. The studio is also very spacious so you won’t ever feel like you don’t have a enough room to practice.
Matt Mancuso was fantastic in choreographing our first wedding dance! We selected the upbeat tune of ‘Shut up and Dance’ by Walk the Moon, of which Matt worked splendidly to outline dance steps that met our personalities and capabilities. He was fun, energetic, and easy to work with. We would highly recommend taking dance lessons from Matt in preparation for any event!
Matt was amazing! He did a great job putting together a short little choreographed dance for our first dance at our wedding. We took 5 lessons with him which turned out to be part teaching and part pep talks from him! Neither my husband nor I “like” to dance and we definitely didn’t want to be the center of attention (though there was no way out of that, short of foregoing the first dance). His choreography was the perfect combination of steps that we could do and be comfortable enough with and yet enough to get “oohs and aahs” from our guests. What he created for us really did allow us focus just on each other and made it very easy to not think about anyone around us while we danced. He has a great personality and is fun to be around, which meshed well with our personalities, and made the lessons fly by. We really enjoyed learning from him and are considering taking some other classes from him just for “fun”. We can’t thank him enough for being such an integral part of making our wedding memorable.
