Bud has been absolutely wonderful! I was extremely nervous about the first dance (read shaking like a leaf) as I am so woefully uncoordinated that I thought there was absolutely no way that I could dance and not look like an octopus in ice skates. In just two lessons (so far-the final one is next week), I feel like this is totally do-able and that we will actually look like we know what we are doing. Bud has been a pleasure to work with, he's so patient and has lots of different teaching techniques so he will find one that works with you. If you are on the fence about dance lessons-do it. Bud is a genuinely nice guy who clearly cares about dancing and his students. You won't regret it!

Michelle & Chris,
I know it was difficult for you to get over the I can't dance blues. Well i feel we are on our way to success. You have worked so hard and Chris is very patient as well. It has been a pleasure and I can't wait to see the progress you have made and the new confidence you have. Congratulations on a job well done.

Bud helped us feel comfortable the minute we walked into his studio. He's fun, lighthearted, and loves to help people learn to dance! He simplified the lingo and gave us a wonderful first experience. We can't wait for our next lesson in preparation for our very special first dance as husband and wife.

Bud was fantastic to work with, especially on short notice! I called him within two weeks of the wedding asking for his help in making sure my fiance and I did not embarrass ourselves when it came to our opening dance. Bud made it fun and low stress, while being extremely patient with someone that has never danced before! I'd definitely recommend him!

Samara & Daniel,
I always say you can learn enough to look great even at the last minute. One or two lessons is alwasys better than none. It takes that edge off of getting in front of friends in a spotlight dance. If you are going to spotlight... give your guests something to watch. Thanks for letting me be part of your wedding.

This man can turn a penguin into an A1 dancer. I was actually more nervous than my husband. Bud is sassy and helps you step into your confidence. The experience of learning to dance together was actually better than the experience of our first dance. We still practice our steps while the pasta is boiling. Go see him!!

Thanks for the review. Penguin NO MORE. It was a delight to work with you and Justin. I had more fun than you did. You made my job so easy. Once you got over the jitters and the desire to lead, Chelsea, you were wonderful. Happy to hear all went well.

We think this is the perfect approach to getting ready for your first dance at your wedding. Bud gave us great instruction, simplifying things, building our dance over the course of three lessons. Bud's warm personality and quirky sense of humor make it a pleasure to spend time with him. We were quite confident with Bud's instructions and our practicing that we would be able to pull off a confident looking first dance. And we did it! Thanks to Bud.

From the Bride: When we first started planning our wedding, we weren't going to have a videographer to capture the day. Well, that changed, and once I knew I was going to be recorded, I figured that dance lessons would make us look like we knew what we were doing. I actually set up two rounds of dance lessons - one with my father (since we had to learn how to waltz) and one with my husband. Bud doesn't sell plans, he has individual lessons. So with my dad, we ended up getting 2, but I got 3 with my husband. I had an absolute blast at the lessons. Each one is one on one (unless you buy a duo lesson with someone you bring) and we loved having the attentiveness focused solely on us. Bud was hysterical to work with and while he did pick at what we did wrong, I never felt like I was being scolded (hey, if I was a perfect dancer, I wouldn't be having lessons). One of the things I loved the most is that Bud taught us moves, but the dance was not choreographed. He taught me how to follow, and my husband how to lead, so once we knew the moves, it was up to my husband to guide me in to them whenever he wanted. The moves really made our 4 and a half minute song fly by and I love that I can actually use some of the moves later. We've gotten a lot of complements on the dance, and I can't wait to see the video of it! We loved Bud so much, we're actually considering going back to learn other dance styles on a date night.

From the groom: Everything my wife said is spot on. Guys, I get it - it sounds lame to go to dance lessons. But after our first experience with Bud, I couldn't wait to go back again. Bud made the experience enjoyable and he never made me feel like I was dumb because I didn't know how to dance. In the end, I felt 100x more comfortable dancing on my wedding day because of Bud, and I can never fully thank him for that.

Your First Dance By Bud Walters responded with the following comments:

Congratulations Anne,David and Dan, I was challenged when your dad(Dan) said you wanted to dance to "The Sleeping Beauty Waltz".
After the first lesson I knew you could accomplish this. The same with David. I am so happy I made your father happy . Doing a waltz to a song he sang to her as a baby. WOW. I hope he will cherish that memory forever. David & Anne... now you can do some new moves at other events. No one expects dancing with the stars from the bride & groom at the wedding but a few well executed steps will do the trick. Thanks!!!
