Welcome to First Dance Impressions.com, web site for the Original and Premier
Wedding Dance Company in the Northern Virginia and Washington Metropolitan
area. Let me tell you a little bit about us.
.........Why we got started
.........How we got started
.........and The special treatment we offer bridal couples.
About 7 years ago, I was a dance instructor for one of the big name dance studios, and periodically an
I realized that wedding couples were not being properly serviced by the traditional dance studios. Their programs are geared towards longer term dance hobbyists who want to learn multiple dances, whereas many wedding couples just want to learn one or two dances quickly. Wedding couples often felt it would be too expensive and time consuming. They were frequently given to less experienced teachers, because they wouldn't buy many lessons.
I decided to change all that!
A real need existed to provide quality dance instruction at reasonable rates, tailored specifically to the needs of couples. I put my ten years experience to work, and began to plan and develop individualized packages especially for couples, so they could learn how to develop a confident and beautiful dance for their wedding reception. And, 5 years ago, First Dance Impressions was born!
Our Wedding Dance Packages are designed to make it easy for you to learn just one -- or as many dances as you'd like. Our experienced instructors focus very strongly on leading and following so that you move together as one as you dance. We've taught many engaged couples how to dance, so they could make their First Dance together as Husband and Wife a moment they could both enjoy and be proud of. Check out the testimonial below! We currently teach dancing out of Studio Locations in Fairfax and Warrenton, Virginia.
I personally specialize in American Style Ballroom (Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango) and Latin (Salsa, Mambo, Cha Cha, Rhumba, Merengue), Argentine Tango (my favorite Dance) and Swing (I really love for Lindy). While the primary focus of First Dance Impressions is to teach wedding couples, we frequently teach non wedding couples, singles (some for 8 years) and groups, and are available for Ballroom Dance performances. All of our instructors dance both the leader's and the follower's parts regularly. This allows us to easily show both the leaders and the followers how to succeed on the dance floor and succeed with style. I believe that the fun and joy of dancing should belong to every generation and teach dancers aged 5 to 85 -- from beginning through advanced levels in 18 dances. I am also experienced in teaching hearing and physically impaired individuals to dance.
can teach any size dance class, from private one-on-one dance lessons
all the way to large on-site groups. My personal experience with group
class dance instruction includes teaching in Private Dance Studios,
Local Night Clubs and Restaurants, as well as for Corporate Functions,
the Girl Scouts, High Schools and the United States' Air force.
