SUE & MARK
"We absolutely loved how our choreographed wedding dance turned out. It fit our personalities and the theme of our wedding perfectly. Neither one of us had danced before but with Kim Sakren's awesome teaching and practice we pulled it off and had a ton of fun in the process."

"Working with Kim of A Perfect Wedding Dance for our May 14, 2011 wedding was an amazing experience. Like every couple who chooses to hire a dance instructor for their first dance, we really wanted to impress our guests with a graceful expression of our wedding celebration. Unfortunately, because my husband and I are not “spring chickens” and I have limited range of motion in my back and hips, I wasn’t sure that I’d be able to do anything special. But, Kim and her expertise choreographed a beautiful dance that was not only easy for me, but also made us look like true dancers! Kim was patient as we stumbled on each other’s feet during our first practices; then as we began to get it, she inspired us to do our very best. On wedding day, we were flawless, and our guests loved every second of our first dance! So, we give Kim of A Perfect Wedding Dance our highest recommendation. Thank you, Kim!"

"We did a 6-lesson package with Kim and it turned out to be among my bride's favorite decisions for the wedding. We did a high-energy dance for our grand entrance/first dance that ended with her flipping up onto my shoulder and it got the entire crowd energized. The bride keeps talking about how fun and amazing the dance was, and I agree. People loved it and we loved it. Kim listened to what we were looking for and adjusted things when they weren't working or if we weren't digging it. She choreographed as we went along, which made sense because she had to adjust to our abilities and interests. She'll work with you if you have no idea what sort of dance you want (like us), but I think you may be even better off if you come in with some ideas of your own to get the ball rolling. She's great at pulling things together. High marks for Kim and A Perfect Wedding Dance."
"I was very concerned about how our first dance was going to turn out....until we met Kim. My husband and I had very different levels of dance experience when we first got to her. I had formerly been a competitive figure skater but my husband could barely sway from side to side. I had never needed to follow a lead and my husband's lack of dance confidence made it difficult to be a strong lead for me to follow. Kim changed all of this for us. My husband now has confidence in being a dance lead. He learned how to hear the music and count the beats. He even learned how to do a couple dance lifts! I finally did learn how to not be the lead and to follow him on the dance floor. Our first dance turned out to be wonderful and I owe it all to Kim. Our guests were amazed with our dance. Many of them were talking about it for months afterwards as a highlight of the reception. We decided to do the 20 lesson package because of what we wanted in our final product. All our lessons were great fun. In fact, I can honestly say those lessons were the best part of wedding planning. It was a way to de-stress while simultaneously working towards something for the "big day". It was also something my husband and I have fond memories of prior to the wedding. We loved our lessons so much that we signed up for more just to learn different ballroom dances after the wedding. Kim is a great teacher and she has a great ability to break down a dance to anyone's skill level. It was definitely the best money we spent on our wedding day."

"Kim was so much fun to work with. She made our first dance a true rock n roll experience! All of our guests absolutely loved it! We're still getting comments on it!"
KIM & SCOTT
"Kim is awesome to work with. She had a HUGE job of getting my groom to feel comfortable with moving his body to our song. I had a pretty big problem—I wanted the Dirty Dancing finale for our first dance, but my groom 1) had zero dance background 2) hates to be the center of attention 3) thinks his high school prom was the single most excruciating moment of his life. And yes, Kim made a dancer out him. It was fabulous! Don’t believe? See for yourself. Kim was able to tailor the choreography just for us. Our guests loved our performance. We loved it. It truly was a perfect wedding dance."
KATE & NICK
"Kim was awesome. We walked in and wanted a swing dance and we sure got one! She's an excellent teacher and was patient as we learned our steps. We felt we walked away with a unique dance that superseded the typical slow dance that is typical for weddings. We kept it as a surprise and our guests were so surprised. If you're interested in doing something different for your wedding check Kim out."
