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!!!

Bud was fun and easy to work with. He took 2 very uncoordinated people and made us look like pros for 1 dance!

Bud was the bomb and so much fun to work with! Both my husband and I enjoyed the lessons for our first dance and would definitely look into doing other ones in the future. He is very easy to understand and makes sure you feel comfortable. We are not good dancers at all and everyone really loved our first dance

We started our lessons not knowing a single thing about dancing! Bud was so patient with us and you could tell his eagerness to help us learn to dance. Within 3 dance lessons we learned it all and our first dance was amazing! Thank you Bud for being so accommodating and making something we dreaded so fun! I highly recommend Bud for dance lessons!

My fiancé and I absolutely LOVED taking dance lessons from Bud! From the moment you walk into his studio, you feel like an old friend. Walking in without any dance experience was intimidating for us, but in no time, we were laughing and having a blast! Besides Bud's entertaining personality, we really enjoyed learning some basic-but-showy dance moves and becoming more comfortable on the dance floor. We are so excited to show our family and friends on our wedding day what we've learned! Hands down, we highly recommend Bud!!

Bud did an outstanding job! When we first talked over the phone, I immediately knew he would be awesome to work with. Friendly, funny, honest! When we arrived for our first lesson I was very nervous, but Bud made me feel at ease and confident. After three lessons, we felt confident that our first dance would be great...and we were right! We had many compliments and lots of "ooohhs" and "aahhhs" during the dance, and a big round of applause after. I felt like a star, and I know Bud had a major part in that. I had so much fun that I want to learn more - now if I only can convince my new husband to continue dance lessons. ;)

We had a wonderful experience with Mr. Walters. He was very accommodating to our schedule, as one of us was only available on weekends, and he tailored his lessons to our two different levels of experience so that we both learned new things but were able to dance together. He also paid attention to details and style after we learned the basic steps of a routine, ensuring we put on a confident, solid presentation at our wedding. We received many compliments after our wedding on how confident we seemed with our dance. We hope to take more lessons from Mr. Walters in the future!
