Wedding Programs

We know how important your Wedding Day is, and we can help you make it even more special! At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, our customized Wedding Dance Instruction Program is created just for you, and will give you the confidence and skill to show off your elegance, style – and maybe a little personality! – on the dance floor, on your special day. For that first dance with your new spouse, or for memorable Father / Daughter and Mother / Son dances, you’ll amaze your family and friends with your new-found skills, and enjoy a magical moment that will be with you for the rest of your lives! In just a short amount of time, our certified Dance Instructors can help you learn a few basic steps or, if you have more time, choreograph the whole dance with you! Whether you want just a few steps to get by, or are looking to create “YouTube-worthy” choreographed dances for the entire wedding party, we’re here for you! This is also a great way to have fun and relax, before and after the Big Day. Enjoying time together while learning how to dance is a great hobby for any couple to share. Your first dance is such an everlasting expression of love and commitment. Contact us today, and give everyone at your wedding a dance to remember.

Dance lessons make it easy to walk out on the floor for your first dance with confidence and grace.  We can create a special dance that is funny, contemporary or a classic waltz or foxtrot.

There are no rules!  Some couples come in for a year or more before their big day, and some come only for a month.  We recommend you schedule at least a month before, to ensure you look and feel comfortable.  Call us today to consult!  We’re open Monday-Friday from 1-10PM.207_Color


My wife and I were given a gift certificate to Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Upper Montclair, NJ as an engagement present. I am usually up for anything but have to admit ballroom dancing was never something I thought I would have to try. I reluctantly went (happy wife-happy life kind of thing). In any event this became one of the best presents we got and one that my wife and I will never forget. Carrie (the owner) is one of a kind. She was super friendly, has a great staff of dancers and knows how to make you feel at home. Don’t let the sign on the door fool you either. Carrie and her staff do a lot more then just Ballroom dancing. We told Carrie that for our first dance the only song we liked was not a slow tune and did not want to just pick something which had no meaning. Carrie instantly said “No Problem!! Give me the song and I will make it work”. She took a fast, upbeat song (September by Earth Wind and Fire) that was special to my wife and me and choreographed a super fun, out of the box dance. Carrie worked with us each time we went for our lesson and after a few short weeks my wife and I learned an amazing wedding dance that friends and family are still talking about today (I’ve been married for 8 years). Thank you to Carrie and everyone at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Upper Montclair for helping to create a special first dance for me and my wife. You took what was once just a favorite song and turned into a memory that will last forever. PH – Cedar Grove NJ…
