    this "deal" sounds like the "intro special" i got when i went to another fred astaire in nj.  don't get me wrong - it was fun but the only thing that was accomplished in the 2 private lessons was the instructor selling us additional lessons.  since we were only a few weeks away from our wedding we went for it but in hindsight it was a waste.  they did not teach us a dance for our wedding song - basically just 3 or 4 "steps" (a box step with 2 different turns and a dip for the end).  they did not even teach us how to move around the floor - just stay in place.  then the instructor kept insisting on trying to teach us another dance style because that was the "program" we were supposed to follow.

    just wanted to give a heads up that if you are looking for a choreographed dance for your wedding song - this will not be it.  if you are looking for something fun and relaxing and to get a bit more comfortable with "dancing" you will probably be satisfied
