Wedding Dance Lessons in Chicago
Duet Dance loves working with engaged couples and couples love us! We have won The Knot Best of Weddings for 4 consecutive years and are happy to help you create a wedding first dance that matches your personality and wedding style. Having worked with wedding couples for the past decade, we have developed effective teaching methods to help couples with different dance levels, needs and goals. Whether you want to impress your guests with a "Dancing with the Stars" routine or simply don't want to look like a fool on the dance floor, we can help you achieve your goal in our one-on-one wedding dance lessons.
If you have particular dance styles that you'd like to learn, we will customize your dance lessons to focus on those specific styles. If you don't know which styles to begin, we will help you choose dances that work best depending on the style of your wedding and your first dance song. Have a unique wedding dance mix in mind? Let us know. Our team loves choreographing something out of the ordinary. Besides Ballroom and Latin, many of our instructors are experienced in Modern, Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap and Ballet. So, if you have a unique idea, don't be afraid to tell us. We are here to make your vision come true! Click here to check out some of the wedding first dances that we've created in the past.

Dance Styles We Teach: Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Salsa, Rumba, Bachata, Cha Cha, Merengue, Swing and Hustle.
Length of a Regular Lesson: It is typically 60 minutes long. The last 5 minutes will be used for scheduling. 2-hour lessons can also be scheduled to help you get the most out of your lesson.
How Many Hours Do We Need? How Often? It depends how good you want to become and how fast you learn. Similar to learning a sport or a new language, the more time you put into learning and practicing, the better you get. We recommend starting dance lessons 4-6 months before your wedding to make sure you have enough time to learn and perfect your dancing. If you'd like to learn a fully choreographed dance, start as soon as you can. Our couples generally do 1 to 3 hours of dancing a week. To help you retain information, at least one hour a week is recommended.
Schedule: Lessons can be scheduled anytime Monday to Friday between 4 pm and 10 pm, Saturday between 1 pm and 6 pm and Sunday between 2 pm and 6 pm.
Rates for Private Lessons: $75/hr to $95/hr depending on the number of hours purchased at a time. Our introductory wedding dance lesson is only $55! During the lesson, you will meet with one of our dance instructors, discuss your needs and ideas for your first dance. We will teach you some basics to get you started with your wedding first dance!
