9 Ways To Calm Your First Dance Nerves, Even if You Have Two Left Feet

Kim's Ballroom Step "Hack"

Kim has found through the years that many of the songs her wedding couples have used for their wedding dances do not fit traditional ballroom dances.  So she “Hacked” a ballroom step pattern and tempo and now "Kim’s Hack" suits many songs, short timelines, gowns, shoes and small dance floors. Creating easy innovative choreography, steps, rhythms and patterns.  Couples often say that learning a choreographed dance with Kim of A Perfect Wedding Dance® made their wedding dance the spotlight of their wedding. They are still receiving compliments years later.
