Everyone we met with there and the lady who gave us our initial tour of the place were very friendly and accommodating. They took their time in showing us the location, the lighting, the sound system, how the tables/chairs will be set up and spaced, the bride's dressing room, the kitchen area for catering, etc. Also, they showed us sample videos of weddings and answered all our questions and said they were open to special requests. We were very satisfied with this place and can't wait to use it on our wedding day.

As two avid Scottish country dancers, we needed to hold our wedding in a place with a good wood floor for the dance reception with space for about 80 dancers to dance at the same time and 125 guests overall. We found that and much more at Monterey Dance, a ballroom dance studio and elegant gem of a hall. Elegant and very tastefully appointed, it has the stateliness of a fancy hotel but is a much more reasonable size for most people and is MUCH more affordable. In addition to the main hall, it has an inviting lobby, a lounge/warming kitchen for the caterer to prepare and store food, and a lovely bridal room. The wedding package includes a DJ or a sound system for a band, and the room has great acoustics. We had both the ceremony and the reception there. The owner, Michell, helped us work out a plan to reset the room from ceremony to reception, working quickly with her crew to move chairs, tables, an arch, etc. She was also very patient with our many questions, changes, and visits to work out logistics. It all worked out beautifully, and both dancing and non-dancing guests loved it!

We had our wedding at Monterey Dance in October of 2015, and we were incredibly disappointed.
Our experience here was nothing but difficult, from start to finish.

The owner, Michell, first refused to honor a groupon we purchased from her company, and only after groupon got involved did she give us a fraction of the value. We agreed to give up the value of our dance lessons if she would let us drop off a few things the day of our ceremony, but instead she turned away my father holding all our centerpieces, at the front door, and locked him out! Our flowers had to wilt in the car for hours because of her, and needless to say we never got any lessons.
The hall itself is beautiful, but it was SO hot during the reception that everyone was retreating outside to the street. We actually ended early because it was unbearably hot, and Michell was pulling tablecloths off tables and trying to shoo us out even before our last dance. And you can forget about getting your security deposit back, she charged us for every tiny thing she found.

Just picture your father getting thrown out of your reception site on your wedding day! Don't make the same mistake we did, get someplace better.

Monterey Dance & Event Center responded with the following comments:

This email was sent to us by the same bride after the reception. Subject: Thank you From: Kristenhall28 Date: Mon, October 12, 2015 9:08 pm To: info@montereydance.com Hi Michell, Just wanted to sincerely thank you for the opportunity to use your beautiful facility for our wedding reception. We had the most perfect day and our guests were all complimenting on the facility at Monterey Dance...all positive things :) When might we find out about the security deposit refund? Our guests were all very respectful and I do not recall any damage to your facility. We would greatly appreciate your response. Thanks so much for the memorable experience! Take care, Kristen & Christine Beck Sent from my iPhone
