Yes! We took private lessons at Dance Center Chicago up on the North side. We had 5 lessons with Mary (one of the owners) and she taught us the waltz. Totally worth the $300 package price =)

  • Wedding: August 2007 - The Wellington House in Fayetteville, NY

we went to Fred Astaire in the North Loop (somewhere around Michigan and Randolph).

our instructor was Jessica and she was great.  it seemed kind of pricey though, but we really liked her so we kept going.

I highly recommend Julee Mertz and company at Big City Swing. They have a great wedding package.  (Full disclosure: she’s a friend, but I’d recommend her even if she wasn’t!)

I really recommend Misha & Sarah from TangoProject (www.tangoproject.com). They teach tango, but also know all sorts of ballroom dances. I HIGHLY recommend them as teachers, or if you want a particular dance (e.g. waltz, foxtrot, etc), then they can give you excellent recs. 

I took tango classes with them for 3 yrs. My sister and I worked with them to do a tango for a friend’s wedding (Indian wedding, performance portion).

As teachers, they VERY good instructors, and take the time for you to really understand how all the "tricks" etc. I can’t say anything bad about them, except maybe their group classes are in Roscoe Village, which might be inconvenient for some. But it’s RIGHT on the Belmont/Clybourn/Western/Kennedy area.

we’re going with Interclub Dance in Niles. A husband and wife team who were ballroom champs. They have decent wedding packages. they recommend to start in a group lesson and then eventually private lessons if you want a choreographed first dance.

But they structure their studio with about 8 different levels of dance skill. We’re going this wednesday to see if level 3 is better for us than level 1. there’s no charge to see what class works best for you.
