John is AMAZING when it comes to Dance!! We could not have been more satisfied with his guidance 'every step of the way'. Our wedding dance was not your typical routine and John surpassed us in helping us achieve the most GORGEOUS romantic wedding themed dance that we envisioned! John's patience, humor and flexibility really made the difference in achieving all of the various steps, spins, and dance moves involved for us. For father & bride dance, John gladly accommodated my father's busy schedule and went above and beyond to help us when it came ballroom dancing. It is our pleasure to recommend John and his team when it comes to dance. We will treasure the memories captured in the dances for the rest of our lives. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

We used Pivot Ballroom to learn our first dance. We had a wonderful instructor (Marissa) who was flexible and figured out a perfect choreography for us. She made the classes so fun and easy that we would look forward to going. Our first dance was amazing and we felt so confident and relaxed going into it.

We used Pivot Ballroom on the Main Line for our wedding dance lessons. John was a pleasure to work with and worked around our schedules. He helped us learn our first dance. We enjoyed all of our lessons and we did a great job dancing at our wedding. The dance lessons were a fun date for us! I highly recommend dance lessons for your first dance and to use Pivot Ballroom on the main line.

My (now) husband and I aren’t exactly known for our dance moves so we knew we needed some help for our first dance! John was incredible - he was fun, kind, easy to work with and super knowledgeable. We danced to more of a bluegrassy tune for our first dance and he didn’t skip and beat in making sure it flowed and we were well prepared. Overall a great experience over those several weeks that we’ll look back on fondly for years to come!" ~Lindsey

My now husband & I had the most magical experience at Pivot Ballroom! My very best friend paid for us to have lessons before our first dance at our wedding (which she sang for us!). From day one we felt so blessed to have Monika as our teacher! She is such an incredible woman, beautiful on the inside & out! She was so lovely, fun, charismatic & made the whole experience a wonderful memory & a great time! My husband & I had never danced a day in our lives so we were super nervous, but Monika made us feel so comfortable & relaxed! We looked forward to seeing her at our weekly lessons! She made it so much fun! Her choreography for our 5 minute dance was incredible & was a huge hit at our wedding! My guests felt like they were in a movie & said it was the most entertained they had ever been at a wedding!!! I cannot say enough amazing things about Pivot Dance & the amazing Monika!!! I highly recommend!
A few tips we have learned over the years.
Don’t wait until the last minute!
Remember that your schedule will get very hectic as the wedding day approaches. We recommend starting a few months earlier so you have time for practice.
Be consistent with your appointments.
The more often you come in, the less review there will be on each lesson. Plan at least once a week to get the most from your lessons.
It’s OK if you haven’t chosen a song yet.
We understand that sometimes it's hard to pick out the perfect song.
If you can't decide, let us help. We have taught hundred of couples over the years and we have lots of good suggestions.
Be patient when learning.
Learning to dance can be stressful, especially if you have never done anything like this before. Think of your lessons as a fun date night and don’t put too much pressure on each other. We want this is too be a fun experience for everyone.
Don’t try to teach your fiance.
You’ll both have a lot more fun dancing if you let your instructor do the teaching.
Practice in the right shoes.
Wear shoes to your lessons that are similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on the big day. You should wait until you have had a few lessons before you wear your actual wedding shoes so you don't scuff them up.
A few things to know for your first lesson.
What is the size of your dance floor?
Will a DJ or band be playing your song?
Will you have any Mother/Son, Father/Daughter or other bridal party dances?
Will the dress affect your movement?
What kind of music will you have at your wedding?
