We are so thrilled to share this video of one of our favorite couples, Johnson & Jaqueline on their big day! Their wedding video, beautifully captured by Matter Video, makes us so proud of the work we do. Watch below to see this lovely couple shining bright on their special day. Johnson & Jaqueline, you both killed it on the dance floor! Your smiles and energy were absolutely contagious and your first dance truly elevated the your celebration to the next level. Here’s to many more years of love, laughter and dancing together! Cheers to you both!
I wanted to take a moment to let you know that our first dance at our wedding 10 days ago was magical!! It didn't go exactly as planned as the band played our song a little differently than the recording, but we went with it, had an absolute blast, and enjoyed every moment. I can't wait to get the video to share with you - my wedding planner said that she sees first dances all the time so never gets emotional, but she teared up. And the band loved it so much, they are adding our song to their repertoire. My dance with my dad, and Tim's dance with his mom, also were great.
I cannot thank you enough for the lessons in dance, and in life, that you shared with Tim and I in the weeks leading up to our wedding. I truly feel that we are a stronger couple and better communicators with each other, thanks to you. I was hoping for a beautiful first dance and to get Tim more comfortable on the dance floor, and I got that but also so much more.
Initially, when my then fiancée and I were looking at dance studios to help us with our first dance, we thought that our instructor, Kayleigh, would be teaching us a routine, but at The Dance Loft, they instruct you on how to perform several dance moves that can then be utilized in an improvised manner. This improvisation purportedly aids in alleviating the pressure of remembering a set routine. In the end, we created our own routine with the dance moves that Kayleigh taught us, and we certainly appreciated having the tools to do so. On our wedding night, my wife and I performed our first dance exceptionally well. There was hardly any pressure at all, which enabled us to focus on each other, be present in the moment, and enjoy our first dance together. Our guests were pleasantly surprised that we had a choreographed routine, that unbeknownst to them, was choreographed by ourselves with the help of Kayleigh. See, what made The Dance Loft a good value for us was that Kayleigh taught us a number of dance moves to put into our repertoire, and based on our comfort level with the steps and how we felt about the song we were dancing to, we were then able to use those moves to formulate our overall routine. The entire experience was very empowering in that we felt like we had complete ownership of our first dance. It wasn’t a routine given to us, but rather a routine that my wife and I put together. All-in-all, Kayleigh, and The Dance Loft was an excellent investment for us. It made our wedding memorable, unique, classy, and all our own. The dance moves we learned have a shelf life well beyond our wedding too and my wife and I look forward to going back to The Dance Loft for some follow-up sessions. It’s definitely worth it! - "Robert from Wedding Wire"

Dance involves all of your senses, enhancing touch and connection between you and your partner. At this Date Night you’ll enjoy laughing and having fun with each other, while opening up to a bigger appetite for sensuality.
Whether you are a newlywed or have been married for many years, a date night of dancing together will create a positive change in your communication, intimacy and confidence as a couple.
Dance causes couples to rely on non-verbal communication, which helps to build a mutual connection.
