- I’ve never danced a day in my life! Can we still do a choreographed first dance?
Yes! Your first dance is about the two of you, having fun, and working together. We Choreograph dances that highlight your best dance moves. If something doesn’t work, we change it. No experience necessary.
- How long before my wedding should I start lessons?
This is dependent on how in depth you want to get with your lessons, length of song, and what your timeline is. We have worked with couples starting 6 months before their wedding, and couples starting the week of! In general, a good timeline is to begin lessons 8-12 weeks before the wedding. This gives plenty of time for that busy pre-wedding season, but keeps the moves fresh in your head.
- What do my lessons include with YNC?
YNC believes in the greatest bang for your buck! All of our packages include:
~ The use of a gorgeous private dance studio for you and your fiancé. No other lessons happen during your time
~ Two instructors for every lesson. Krista and Kelvin are at all lessons together. This offers a two person perspective when demonstrating and learning.
~ All choreography is prepared before you walk in the door. Krista and Kelvin work outside of your lesson so you are ready to dance the moment you walk in!
~You will receive a video of what you have learned in each lesson. This is an invaluable tool for practicing on your own and you can see tangible results of your hard work!
- My wedding song is five minutes long! Do we have to do the entire song?
Absolutely not! We can work with any length song and even help with cutting the music if you want to shorten your song (or put several together for a mashup). A typical length for your wedding dance is 2 to 3 and a half minutes. Music cutting is included with 5 or more lessons, or there is a $30 fee for cutting. (3 revisions/fee)
- How much are lessons?
YNC has created several package options that work with all budgets and event needs. Discounts are offered for 3 lesson packages and above. We can also create custom packages for those wanting to incorporate their wedding parties, and/or long distance couples. Lessons begin at $130. Please contact us for a full package pricing guide.
- I want to work with YNC but I don’t live in the Los Angeles area. Are there options for “virtual lessons?”
Yes! YNC can put together a choreographed dance and send it you via videos. You can learn your dance on your own, and still have the YNC custom experience! Inquire as to video package pricing.
- How long is each lesson?
Most lessons are 1 hour each. We do have a One and Done option that is an hour and a half. Also, we are happy to extend lessons to an hour and a half or 2 hours as needed.
- What should I wear to the lessons?
If possible, wear your actual wedding shoes. This allows you to break the shoes in and get comfortable dancing in “wedding game time conditions.” If your dress is very tight, wear a tight dress or skirt to help understand your range of movement. Other than that, dress comfortable for your lessons. YNC even offers a “stunt skirt” for practicing in a long floor touching skirt.
- I have no idea what song to dance to! Can you help us choose a song?
Of course! Below are a few of our favorites. We can also suggest songs on a more personal basis once we know more about you and your musical tastes.
