My now-husband and I initially signed up for lessons to avoid embarrassing ourselves during our first dance. We left with a completely choreographed routine that had our guests cheering the entire time. Derek, our teacher, helped us to put together a dance that looked incredibly polished but was easy to master. He also made our lessons fun. In fact, we had such a positive experience that I took my dad for a lesson for our father daughter dance. A big thank you to Derek and Society Hill Dance Academy for one of the most memorable moments from our wedding.

My father and I perfected our father-daughter dance at the Society Hill Dance Academy! My favorite part about our lessons was that Meghan (our instructor) took the time to get to know what we felt comfortable with, and built a dance that was not only beautiful but also felt distinctly *us*

Prior to our wedding, we took seven dance lessons with Cat for our 'first dance' and the results were great! We went from robotic and stepping on each other's feet to feeling comfortable and looking like we knew what we were doing on our special day. With so many things to think about on the wedding day, not having to stress about the first dance was a relief.

We couldn't have done it without Cat who made the experience fun and something we looked forward to every week. Can't wait to learn another step (maybe hip-hop?) at SHDA soon!

My husband and I had 7 lessons with Nodari in order to learn the first dance for our wedding. It was such a wonderful and memorable experience! Before the lessons, my husband and I do not know how to dance at all. But Nodari is so kind and experienced, lets the lessons be so fun. We all love it. In the end, we had a very wonderful and romantic first dance in our wedding! Taking the private lessons in society hill dance academy is one of our best choices we made. If I will still live in Philly, I definitely will take classes with Nodari again to learn more.
