Monica and Mark

"Having Courtney Liu choreograph and teach us our 'first dance' was one of the best decisions we made in preparing for our wedding! Neither of us had experience with ballroom styles or partnered dancing like this, but Courtney broke everything down and set a routine and pace that made us look like pros. The rehearsal process itself proved to be fun and light-hearted -- no stress! We loved that Courtney created a routine that highlighted our personalities and played to our strengths. The crowd was on their feet the whole time, and we still rewatch a video of the dance every year on our anniversary."

"We had SO much fun learning our custom choreographed first dance with Courtney & Troy. We are not dancers by any means, but Courtney was beyond patient with us and made our private classes an experience that we will always remember. The time spent learning our first dance brought us closer together in a way we've never done before - through dance! In all the stress of wedding planning and months leading up to our big day, this was a fun way to relieve some of that stress and to try something new together. You could also do couples dance classes - doesn't have to necessarily be for a first dance! We had so much fun just learning something new together."
