    We took lessons with Rachael at The Dancin' Feelin' in Warwick. She was great! She was wiling to choreograph the whole dance, but we just had her teach us the Foxtrot and help us with a beginning and ending.

    They have a great special there - for $95 per couple, you get 3 half-hour private lessons, 2 group lessons, and 1 party. We ended up buying one more private lesson ($50), but even then it was MUCH cheaper than the other places I found.

    I'm not totally sure what they recommend, I'm sure you could call and ask. We weren't sure how good (or bad, really) we were going to be, so we went in for our first lesson about 2 months before the wedding. We had one private lesson a week for 3 weeks, then we just practiced on our own for a few more weeks. We took one more lesson 2 weeks before the wedding to learn the beginning and end and brush up on technique. It worked out really well for us, because it struck a balance between having enough time to practice and having a lesson close to the wedding to polish it.

    IMO:
    be careful w/ dance lessons... if you do'nt have the dance down pact, couples can often look like "idiots" as you can see them counting off steps in their head and not really enjoying it.  i've been to two weddings where couples did this and was not impressed.  it would have been more meaningful had they been concentrating on each other and the moment instead of where the dance floor ended...

    My F and I want to do a surprise first dance thats choreographed (but not ballroom). Anyone know of a dance studio in the Warwick area that can handle our challenge? Oh and not be too too expensive (we do have a wedding to plan after all). lol

    We used Denise Day (google search:)
    http://maps.google.com/maps/place?rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&oe=UTF-8&rlz=1I7_____en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=denise+day+MA&fb=1&gl=us&hq=denise+day&hnear=MA&cid=4851022886694930384

    We had such an awesome time working with Denise.  She is in Shrewbury, MA, so might not be the right area for you, but does great work.  We wish we had more time to rehearse, and even with a lack of practice time, our dance was great and romantic.  Check out our dance!
