    About Mother-Son Dance Lessons

    Your lessons will start with a consultation. You’ll get to meet with one of our experienced dance instructors, who will talk about timelines, schedules, song suggestions and dance styles with you. Just tell us what you hope to achieve, and we’ll do our best to make it happen in time for the wedding reception. Our studio teaches a wide variety of styles, including the popular waltz. Other great options for a wedding include the tango, foxtrot, quickstep, cha-cha, and rumba. You can view the complete list of dance styles we teach online.

    Once you decide on a style and song, the instructor can get started with the choreography. You’ll learn the basics first, like footwork, positioning, posture, and leading/following. Over the course of your lessons, you’ll start learning different patterns before finally putting it all together.

    The Arthur Murray teaching method is designed for dancers of all skill levels. It’s okay if one or both of you lack any dance experience or are feeling nervous about being under the spotlight. We work with you one-on-one to make sure you learn all the material at a pace you’re comfortable with. We want you to feel as excited and confident about your mother-son dance as possible.
