Dance Easy BBB Business Review

We are in the process of reopening on a limited basis!
Private lessons:
Private lesson are available to people who are already couples a few days per week. Call 608-270-1550 or email dancenow@danceeasy.com to schedule.  
Group lessons:
I will be attempting to get enough people to have a 4 week group July 7, 14, 21 & 28 from 7:30-8:30. If you had group lessons in March or April that were canceled you are welcome in this group to take the lessons you have left. If this time doesn't work for you, it would be helpful if you would email me and tell me some times that would work for you. New people are welcome to join. At this time I will be taking couples who are already couples. There will be no partner switching. Dances will be the more popular social dances. The price is $35 per person. You may register on this site by clicking on one of the "Buy Now" buttons. No drop ins or single group classes unless you have registered prior to the group. 

Dances:
For the few people who paid for dances that did not take place, we will arrange some sort of credit. Please contact me to arrange for your credit. 

Precautions for all students:
Please do not attend if you are sick!!  I will be wearing a mask. I would prefer if students wore coverings too. I will schedule 15 minutes between lessons and classes to allow for couples to come and go without meeting and for me to disinfect surfaces. Students should wash hands in the bathroom before and after lessons. For classes, please wait outside the studio in the lobby. The reception area is not available for seating. Just be safe and considerate of all students.

Weddings

Your Memorable First Dance.

How do you want to remember your first dance? Many couples want to learn a few moves that take them beyond “hug and rock”. Others want to WOW the crowd with a choreographed dance that will be talked about for years. Whatever you want, my job it to help you get there.

We’ll start by talking about the memory you want to create, your music selections and how much time and budget you want to invest. At our first session we’ll review your music. If you can’t decide the song you like best, we’ll listen, try difference dance steps and see what feels right to you. Then we personalize your dance by adding a little flare – dips, turns, spins – to make it memorable.

Couples usually take between three to five lessons, but depending on your dance and music selection a single lesson may be enough. If you would like a polished choreographed routine, you may need a few more lessons. Dance Easy offers a variety of packages for wedding couples. Private lessons are an ideal way to learn to dance with ease and confidence for your special dance. Group classes and monthly dances are an excellent way to practice and get comfortable in a more public setting.


 

Our private lessons are a full 60 minutes with exclusive use of a private studio and an instructor who will personalize your wedding dance to any level you choose from "Just the Basics" to more polished choreography. You will be able to practice to your special song without the competition and confusion of multiple shared lessons as with most other studios.

Your Questions Answered

Comfortable clothes for your first lessons. It is helpful to wear clothes that are like your wedding attire as your lessons progress.
That's OK. We'll start with some basics until you have your song. When you do, you can bring it to your lesson on your mobile phone, iPod or CD. If you forget, most often I can find it on YouTube, but it takes extra time from your lesson, so try to remember to bring it with you.
That's very subjective. Some people want just a few lessons. For others, they really like lessons and choose to take many more. For most people, taking one of the packages of 3, 5 10 or 15 lessons gives them a pretty good idea of what they want to commit to learning to dance. 
There is a 24-hour cancel/reschedule policy because the space and instructor are booked exclusively for you. In emergencies, we usually make up the lesson by adding to your schedule or by adding time onto your remaining lessons.

What our Students Say.

  • " DanceEasy is a terrific place to learn how to dance…but it’s more than that! Marlene is the charming and talented owner/instructor of DanceEasy and she has a knack for helping those with two left feet find a right foot and gain confidence. She also helps those with more natural dance abilities progress and expand their repertoire, to feel even more comfortable and light on their feet. "

    Amy and Marty, Madison
  • " You're a one-of-a-kind teacher. You inspire, you challenge, you guide, you give, you praise, you listen, you encourage, you care . . . You make a difference in the lives you touch."

    Sheryl & Erik, Madison area
  • " Thank you for making our wedding dance the hit of our wedding celebration. We were pretty proud to have “nailed” a four-minute rumba that had the last three minutes choreographed to the music. By the end we had 120 people on their feet shouting and clapping! "

    Allen Jacobson & Lila Daut
  • " Thanks for taking the time to see my wife and I and give us private lessons for our first dance. Your ability to cater to all levels of skill on the dance floor made it easy for us to learn the basics needed to get through our wedding. Your lessons gave us the confidence we were looking for to have a successful first dance. Thank you so much "

    Ian & Leah Isakson

    Maria-Christina Jackson, Madison
  • " I wanted to dance at my child's wedding! Of course, I did learn to dance for this wedding, many thanks to my instructor. . . Now I look at dancing as a tremendously wonderful investment — Jump in at any age! "

    Jim, , Livingston, WI
  • " I first took dance lessons to be able to dance the basic steps at a few dances. As I slowly progressed, I also developed the confidence I lacked before. Now I look forward to each class to improve and learn new techniques "
