Wedding Dance Lessons in Spokane & CDA

If you are looking for wedding dance lessons in Spokane or CDA, you are in the right place! In high school I only knew of the weird body shaking dances that many of you have experienced too. This is not that – thank goodness! After high school I discovered a wonderful world of dancing. Dancing that came with the perfect mix of structured rules but not strict like a line dance or call and respond dance.

Spokane and Coeur d’Alene have a wealth of places to get wedding dance lessons or just dance lessons in general. Either way its well worth the effort to learn new dances no matter where you are in life. If you already have a song you want to use for your first dance, bring it to your instructor and see if they can help you select a dance style to compliment your song.
