Class Descriptions

Wedding Reception Survival Level 1 - Learn the basics of Slow Dance, Single-time Swing, and Foxtrot - the approach is fun and simple, the steps are easy to learn, and as with all of my classes, you get to stay with your own partner the entire time.

"We learned a lot and had a great time. We would definitely recommend your class to any friend." --Sharon and Josh Stevenson
If you have enough time (I know, planning a wedding is hectic!), combine this class with a few private lessons to zero in on your first dance, and you'll be ready to go! Float around the dance floor with your sweetheart to classics by Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Connick, Jr., just to name a few. Or cozy up to Etta James, John Legend, Rascal Flatts and more! (Looking for a song for your first dance? Go to my suggestions page.) Class size is limited, so sign up early!

Wedding Reception Survival Level 2 - Review and fine tune the basics learned in the Level 1 class, and add some new moves to your dance repertoire. Plan ahead so you can take this class! (Prerequisite: Wedding Reception Survival Level 1)

"Our classes were the perfect combination of technique and fun in a great relaxed environment. We loved it so much, we took both Level 1 and Level 2 and still dance together to this day." --Fran Loosen and Nick Giardino

Swing 1 - Learn the basics and beyond of East Coast Triple-time Swing, and dance to Big Band, Rock n Roll, etc. This class will include Charleston basics, so get ready to have some fun!

Swing 2 - Tucks, 6's and 8's - Continue with your East Coast Triple-time Swing, adding fun tuck turns, as well as mixing in some new 8-count Lindy moves. (prerequisite: Swing 1)

Swing 2 - Spins and Switches - Add new fun spins to your East Coast Triple-time Swing, and mix it up with some unexpected switches, both 6 and 8 count. (prerequisite: Swing 1)

Waltz 1 - Learn this beautiful and romantic dance, and you will be gliding around the floor with elegance and grace in no time!

Registration Details

Group Dance Classes
Pre-registration is a very good idea for group classes, as class size is limited. To pre-register, fill out the registration form, print it out and send it with a check to hold your spot in class. I will email you to confirm once I have received your registration. Please contact me at (206) 522-0413 or angela@ourfirstdance.com before registering to be sure there is still room available. All classes are entry level unless otherwise noted. All classes are for couples - if you would like to take the class but don't have a dance partner, ask a friend to join you! In class you stay with your partner the entire time.

Registering at the Class
You may register on the first night of class if the class is not full . Show up 5 to 10 minutes early with registration form and payment to get checked in. Please call to make sure there is still room.

Forms of payment
I accept money orders, personal checks and cash. Please do not send cash in the mail.

Fragrance-Free Please
Many people have fragrance sensitivities. In order to create a healthy environment, please refrain from using any scented products such as perfumes, colognes, and scented after-shave liquids or lotions. Allergic reactions include headaches, sneezing, scratchy throats, watery eyes, and a few other symptoms that can ruin the dance experience. Your cooperation is appreciated.
