    In this ballroom dance virtual program, Melanie will teach you the 5 basic components of ballroom dance; and, how to hold your partner, and different rhythms that are popular.  My goal is to work on performing these components until they are comfortable for you.  Ballroom Dance Mentor will teach you to dance the basics in several social dances which will introduce you to different rhythms. Dancing is pure fun! It also builds confidence! If you are past the basics, Melanie will teach you some variations to enhance your dancing skills. One of the most popular patterns is the box step. You will learn the box step, which I will cover in detail in several dances.  Give it a try. See how easy it is to learn with the "Mother of Ballroom Dancing in Raleigh", Melanie Dale!

    1st Dance
    Putting the time in to take a few dance lessons, no matter how basic, can really add a little bit of "spice" to your first dance as a married couple. Looking past your wedding date, you will be able to take these moves out onto the dance floor for date nights, other weddings and parties down the line, and more! Instead of just learning how to not step on each other's toes, you can take this opportunity to bond with one another over a new experience. Not to mention the fact that dance lessons can be a great way to spend more time together and reduce some wedding stress. This pilot course will be taught over 5 weeks, with you as the co-creator, and will emphasize the instructions you need to "Make Your First Dance Memorable".  I am looking for 10 more couples to make this a wonderful experience for everyone involved!  It will never be offered at this price again.  Tell your friends...they may want to do it with you! It would cover things like: 1. How to walk onto the dance floor and transition to the dance as well as dip your partner at the end. 2. The secret to dancing with your partner and not stepping on each other while putting the pieces together 3. You'll also get a checklist for the Bride and Groom and a guideline script for the 1st dance announcement. Each couple will have a comfortable and fun approach to their "Memorable First Dance"! If this sounds interesting to you, send me a private message to ballroomdancementor@gmail.com for more information. I look forward to helping you or someone you know have a "Memorable First Dance".
