We know how important your Wedding Day is, and we can help make it even more special!  At Fred Astaire Dance Studios, we customize our Wedding Dance Instruction Programs just for you, to give you both the confidence and skills to show off your elegance, style – and maybe even a little personality on the dance floor, on your wedding day. We’ll help you create a special “First Dance” that’s totally “YOU” – be that elegant, contemporary or just plain fun. Amaze your family and friends with your new-found dance skills, and enjoy magical wedding memories that will be yours forever.

Call today, and let’s talk about your dream wedding dance!

  • Your Wedding Day First Dance
    Your First Dance is an everlasting expression of your love and commitment – for you and your new spouse, as well as for the special guests celebrating with you. From a few simple steps to get by to a fully choreographed routine, we can help make your first dance as unique as the rest of your wedding day.
  • Father/Daughter & Mother/Son Dances
    A memorable Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dance is a wonderful complement to your First Dance. Including your parents (or the special friends or family members who will be standing in that traditional role) in your wedding dance is a wonderful way to show your love and appreciation. We’d recommend also scheduling a few wedding dance lessons for them, too.
  • Wedding Party Dance Routines
    Looking for something really memorable? We can choreograph a “YouTube-worthy” wedding dance for the whole wedding party, that’s set to your favorite music! Extend those special wedding day moments with an awesome routine you’ll want to re-live, again and again.

Your Day, YOUR Wedding Dance Experience
In just a short amount of time, our certified Dance Instructors can help you learn a few basic steps, so you’ll feel at ease and confident on your wedding day. Have something bigger in mind? We can choreograph the whole dance with you – even include the wedding party! There are no hard & fast rules – so you decide on the plan. We do recommend scheduling your lessons at least a month before the ceremony (and further in advance, for more involved routines) so give us call today for a consult. Bring along your favorite song, pictures of your venue, wedding dress… everything you’d like to share, to help us make your dream dance a reality.

Have Fun Along the Way To Wedding Day!
Wedding dance lessons are a great way to have fun and relax before the Big Day. With all the decisions, schedules and deadlines involved in wedding planning, enjoying this time together that’s just for you can help you both de-stress and re-energize – and we promise you’ll have lots of fun doing it! 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…
