Rumba Traditionally the wedding dance of choice and fits to most music - often refered to as "Box Step" or "Bridal Waltz".
Waltz You will find that many songs are not actually the correct rhythm for Waltz timing. However, if you do happen to find a song which is 3/4 timing and have a little extra time to master this beautiful dance, you'll be sure to leave your guests amazed at how graceful you both look!
This will suit faster songs, big band music, Frank Sinatra classic's or anything that has a swing to it. A good option if you'd like
a more sophisticated looking routine with that classic old world charm.
The YouTube Phenomenons Baby Got Back, Dirty Dancing, Michael Jackson Style, Chris Brown 'Forever' …etc…
Freestyle Hip Hop, Old School, 90's, House/dance music or any other commercial music.
You Can Dance is the only studio in Melbourne which specialises in street style wedding routines! We have some seriously talented instructors on board who can create youtube-worthy routines!
Tango "Scent of a Woman", "True Lies" and "Shall We Dance" are just a few movies which demonstrate how dramatic this style
would be for a wedding dance. It's not a style for every couple but if you're able to master this passionate dance you'll have your guests hanging on every second!
50's/Rock 'n' Roll Attention hipsters! How about Swing, Lindy Hop or Jive for a first dance?
This has been the most popular choice for couples wanting something 'different' other than a Hip Hop/Freestyle dance.
Latin/Salsa Dirty Dancing has forever been a favourite wedding dance but there's also many other great latin songs which could be used
for a sexy looking routine. Latin would be a good choice for beach themed weddings or couples heading abroad to get married.

and then end up dancing some really amazing routines!
Try to avoid booking at the last minute even if you're only having a few lessons. It's best to be prepared early than to be rushing to finish your routine on the final week of the wedding..

We look forward to meeting you both!
See you on the dance floor...
" Thank you for your help in preparing a wedding routine for Susan and I.
We had a fantastic day and were able to complete the dance with confidence and style!
Thanks for your patience and perseverance, even given the late changes.
I liked the way you adapted your teaching style as we gained confidence and
the fact you were always extremely patient with both of us. The homework exercises
were a big help also and helped us get the most from your lessons. - Susan & Mark "
" Thank you so much for all your patience. We couldn't have asked
for a better dance teacher!! We certainly didn't expect to nail it after
our appalling final rehearsal but lucky that was only a rehearsal!! - Anna & Andrew "
"We had Paul as our dance instructor and booking a 10 pass with him was probably
the most fun thing we did in our wedding planning. We were in cahoots every class,
and everyone at the wedding reception LOVED the dance he choreographed.
He is an amazing dance talent and such a great, patient teacher.
Thanks for all the fun Paul. We will see you soon. - Grant & Lien "
Thank you for all your help in teaching us to dance. One of our friends
(who regularly attends dance lessons) knew exactly what we were doing, although
I wasn't sure what he was calling our moves :). Also, on our honeymoon, we went
to an observation tower and had a dance. It was a truly romantic evening
and together with the wedding, ones we will never forget.
We will defiantly be back soon for some latin dance lessons. - Louise & York "
"Thank you for helping to make the [wedding] day so special. - Kira and Dion "
" We would both like to thank you very much for creating the most wonderful wedding dance for us. You helped make our wedding experience a truly amazing one and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We hope to have more lessons with you, so see you soon - Nadia and Adrian "
"Thank you so much for your patience, support and guidance in helping us learn to waltz!
You were a great teacher and you got the most out of our limited potential!
We were told that our dance was very nice and we have only you to thank!
- Francis & May "
"Thanks again for your help with our last minute dance routine just 3 weeks before our wedding! You did an amazing job with us in such a short space of time. You made our dance lessons fun and enjoyable as you were so relaxed with us and made us feel comfortable that we could do it! On the night we convinced several people we could dance thanks to the start of the routine, despite the fact that our dance floor was on bouncy tropical grass and we felt like we were dancing on a waterbed! We still managed to pull it off and had loads of fun during our dance routine!
Thanks again. We love what you're doing and that your lessons are such good value!
I hope to come in and have a go at some beginners hip hop!
- Melissa & David "
- Wayne & Fleur
Wayne & Fleur came to us for 'something different' and boy did they get it!!
Mixing traditional rumba box step with hip hop - neither of them had danced before…
Excellent job guys!
"We had such a great time learning the routine and our wedding guests absolutely loved it!
- Joanna & David "
"Just thought we'd update you to say that we don't think we embarrassed ourselves or you during our tango.
We had a blast. And really enjoyed lessons with you.
- Ling & Lee "

"A very belated 'thank you' for teaching us to dance! What was created in a month was quite incredible... worthy of 10/10 scores on the night! Most couldn't believe it! We had such a great time learning and look forward to more lessons with you once the kids are bigger! Thank you again.
- Pauline & Brendan"
"Thank you for giving us the confidence to dance on our wedding night. Your choreography looked so natural and you gave us so many laughs on our lessons. We had an absolute ball and everyone loved it - Richard & Mairead"
"You know what, I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart... We had so much more fun learning the moves and dancing with you guys then doing the dance on the actual night!
You are such delightful people to be around, we had so many laughs and so many arguments as to who was getting the moves right and wrong, but no.. its all your fault bub! Are you leading or am I???? Haha! Thanks guys, I can't say enough!
- Kelly & Zen"
"Dear Paul & Vlad, We cannot thank you both enough for the unbelievable patience, effort and creativity when choreographing not one but two! amazing routines!! The crowd went wild and we loved every minute of it. We are so proud to be associated with You Can Dance Studio and our wedding guests will no doubt be lining up at your door very soon!

- Kelly & Andrew"
"Dear Alex, Thank you so much for all your hard work & kind help in teaching us to dance. We had a really lovely day and the dance was a big hit on the night! We will bring you some more pic's when we return for some more lessons!! Lots of love...
- Lucasz & Johanna"
Just a short note to say thanks from Jess and I for getting us up to speed so quickly.
Everyone joined us on the dancefloor before we even got halfway through our routine,
nevertheless, we didn't sway awkwardly or anything. I think we fooled everyone!
It was a great day. Thanks again for putting a bit of polish on it for us.
- Scot & Jess"
