Testimonials

“Thanks to the excellent coaching of Dennis, our first dance at the wedding reception was fantastic and beyond our expectations. We found Dennis to be creative, helpful, patient, practical and very much accommodating to our wishes and various requests during the lessons. Our wedding dance turned out to be big success thanks to Dennis.”

Sunday & Ramzi Fawaz

“Elizabeth was a fabulous dance coach. My husband and I looked forward to our lessons because it gave us a special break from the craziness of planning a wedding and allowed us some quality time together.  Elizabeth made it so comfortable for us, while we were dancing we would almost forget she was even there. She made dancing easy and shared in the excitement for our wedding! We were so excited to perform in front of our family and friends. Everyone loved it!”

“Our dance coach Maren was instrumental in helping us prepare for our wedding dance. As a couple who previously had never danced together in any formal way, has little rhythm, and generally goes into major situations unprepared, we couldn’t have felt more ready and comfortable dancing together on our wedding day. In only five lessons, Maren taught us the basics of two different dances, and we were able to practice and learn more complex spins and dips that we were somehow able to perform with high heels and a long dress (well, one of us). We recommend Maren with as much enthusiasm as we can, and will hopefully find some time soon to continue our lessons. Thanks!”

Jonathan & Laura

“My husband and I were looking for a wedding dance instructor who had the ability to create a distinctive dance that would reflect the unique nature of our relationship. We had a very small and laid back ceremony and reception with just our closest friends and family. Due to this, we wanted our dance to be fun and romantic, but not showy or cheesy like many of the wedding dances you see online. To make it more of a challenge, we had a small space to work with. From the beginning, Galit was very professional, yet personable and caring. She took the time to get to know us and our relationship history so she could understand how to best represent us stylistically. She also had the forethought to ask about the space we were going to use and took into account where the photographer would be standing. Galit created a dance that not only showcased our relationship, but also spoke to our strengths as dancers and as a couple. We looked forward to our time with her during the lessons and practice sessions. In the end, our friends and family loved watching our touching moment, and my husband and I loved sharing it with them. Thanks, Galit!”

Jim & Rebecca

“We worked with Dennis in the Denver location and it was amazing. We opted to have the dance created for us since my husband does not like to dance, nor be the center of attention. We left the first session and Ben looked at me and said, “that was actually fun!”. Now he’s talking about us taking dance classes again in the future for fun! Dennis made the whole experience so positive for us and the dance was perfect! Our guests still are telling us a month after how much they loved it!”

Jean & Ben

“Elizabeth can Dance! In my past 12 years of planning weddings (over 400 to date) I have never seen a first dance that was more fun, entertaining and an “obvious” that ALL guests were loving every moment. Elizabeth is a class act! She will work with your personal comfort zone to create the moment you want to showcase. I wish I knew her when I planned my wedding, I would have hired her!”

“My husband and I decided to take classes for our first dance after choosing a song that deserved more of a performance than the standard sway back-and-forth. After visiting a few places that were impersonal, pushy about packages, and a “private” lesson that was filled with other couples, we were delighted to find Wedding Dance Coach. Maren was a fantastic instructor and we had a truly private lesson with her. She worked with our desire to not have a fully choreographed dance and instead helped us zero in on moments in our song that could benefit from a little drama and fancy footwork, in additional to teaching us the basics of the waltz. After our wedding, attendees raved that it was the best first dance they had ever seen. We are so grateful to have found such a good coach to make our dance so memorable for us and all of our guests!”

Kate McQuail & Alex

“We worked with Dennis for five dance lessons to help us coordinate our first dance. We wanted to surprise our wedding guests, but we wanted something simple and fun. At our first lesson, Dennis took the time to get to know us and to understand exactly what we wanted. He was able to listen to our song and to come up with a dance routine that fit both the meaning of the song and our personalities perfectly. Our guests were definitely surprised and impressed and we made many good memories thanks to Dennis!”

Sia & Trevor

“Elizabeth was an incredible dance instructor.  My then-fiance and I went to her to prepare for the first dance at our wedding.  My mom also came to practice a groom/mother dance.  None of us are all that great at dancing, so I think we were all a little nervous.  But Elizabeth put us right at ease!  She’s incredibly kind, thoughtful, and understanding of our limited dancing experience.  She kept things simple enough for us, but somehow got us to the point where the dances looked amazing and we had fun doing them.  I highly recommend her!  If you need dance lessons, especially for a wedding, look no further.  You won’t be disappointed!”

Rob Gartland

“Maren was wonderful to work with! We highly recommend her! My wife and I took dance lessons with Maren, our objective being to dance at our daughter’s wedding. Maren listened carefully to our “dancing goals” and then was able to direct us as to which dances would be most appropriate to learn. She not only taught us the proper steps, but also the aesthetics of the frame, posture and moving across the floor with grace. Maren herself is a beautiful dancer and she wanted us to look and feel like dancers also, not just know the steps. Her patience with novices was endless, and her teaching techniques fun and varied. We now look for every opportunity to dance! Thanks Maren!”

JoAnne & Ron Baumgartner

“Working with Dennis was easy and fun. He is a very talented dancer and choreographer but also listens to what you are interested in doing, the vibe you would like, and will incorporates moves you suggest. It was amazing that he created a dance we could learn in only 4 one-hour lessons – the video recordings really helped us when we practiced at home. We were so thrilled with how our dance turned out, and we never thought we would get so many compliments on it! It was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding and we couldn’t be more thankful.”

Ali & Paul Schwabe

“Maren was an absolutely incredible dance coach! She helped us create a memorable first dance that truly suited our personalities. She was very patient and made the lessons a lot of fun. We would highly recommend Maren to anyone!”

Samantha & Michael

“For many months leading up to my wedding day, I searched and spoke with numerous dance instructors in hopes that I would find someone who’s not only talented, but creative, energetic, understanding, and just plain FUN. Elizabeth had all those qualities and more. From beginning to end Dave and I felt so at ease with her. She understood exactly what we wanted, how to teach it, and then–this is just the cherry on top–made it incredibly fun and relaxing at the same time. We did a combination dance of slow and fast–and our wedding crowd was hollering, clapping and whistling the entire time! So many guests came up to us and said that we had the best first dance they’ve seen and my parents came up to me at the end and said that they felt that dance made them want to get married again so that could do the same thing! Elizabeth, thank you so much for everything–it was short period of time that we have known each other, but Dave and I will always remember you forever for the wonderful gift you have given us in making our wedding day so special. Thank you.”

Dave & Aenny

“Thanks to the excellent coaching of Dennis, our first dance at the wedding reception was fantastic and beyond our expectations. Everyone was cheering and was surprised that my husband Bill could dance. Bill had never danced before and he always said that he has no rhythm. Dennis was so patient, creative and helpful in creating choreography that was easy for the both of us. Our wedding dance turned out to be big success thanks to Dennis.”

Ana Tamayo

“Maren, thanks again so much for the wedding dance lessons. My fiancee and I are actually excited now about our dance, not dreading it. You really were great, we appreciate you being able to squeeze us in last minute as well! ”

Sarah A.

“Dennis is top notch! Really cannot say enough good things about him. He accepted us as clients with only a few weeks until our wedding and worked with us to put together a lovely first dance (even though we are not the best dancers) that made us look like we had been dancing together for years. He’s pleasant, prompt and very professional. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn, whether it’s something with a lot of choreography or something simple, he is right guy for the job. He’s extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of dance and happy to personalize your dance for your event. I even saw him helping a couple who were going to do a polka clogging number for their wedding. Hire Dennis.”

Kenny

“My fiance and I took 5 dance lessons with Elizabeth before our wedding. We were hoping to just not look like idiots for our first dance. We knew next to nothing about dancing before walking into her studio, but Elizabeth made us feel like professionals by our wedding day. She figured out a routine for us that was easy to learn (with some practice), and made us look great. We rocked our first dance! Our guests loved it, it made for some wonderful photos, and we had a blast doing it. I would highly recommend Elizabeth for any couple who wants to feel confident and have fun during your first dance!”

Liz & Sam Hewitt

“I’ve been taking private dance lessons with Maren for the past 4 months and my dancing has improved noticeably. When I first started, I didn’t know basic technique, but with her instruction and encouragement, I’ve made tremendous strides. She is very patient about coaching my movements, encouraging me to try again, and giving positive and constructive feedback!”

Julia S.

“My husband and I took dance lessons from Dennis to prepare us for our first dance at our wedding. I have to say that Dennis was perfect for us in so many ways. He choreographed a dance that was suited to our skills and matched the style of the song we chose very well. We danced to “You’re Nobody ’til Somebody Loves You” by Dean Martin and we had so much fun during our dance lessons and, of course, during the grand finale of the first dance! Admittedly, my husband, probably like many a groom, was not too fond of the idea of a first dance and is not a fan of dancing in general. But, as the bride I charmed him into it. I can genuinely say that my husband had fun taking lessons with Dennis he was able to get over his fear of formal dancing. To me, that says a lot about Dennis’ abilities. Dennis has a great way with teaching others, understanding their comfort zone, and understanding what they want. We absolutely love Dennis and I would recommend anyone and all of my friends to him if they needed a dance lesson! I must also say that Elizabeth Marberry was an absolute joy to work with. Elizabeth is the owner of Elizabeth Marberry Dance and she got us in touch with Dennis. Dennis and Elizabeth are professional, friendly, fun good people. They love what they do and you can tell. I could not have been any happier from our experiences with both of them. Thanks so much to you both!”

Sabrina Abla

“I am beyond thrilled that we decided to pursue lessons and were blessed with Elizabeth Marberry! One of the last things you think about when you are wedding planning (at least for me) was dance lessons. She literally listened to the first five seconds of our song that she had never heard and she had an entire dance ready to start. She worked with us and made sure that each move was comfortable and what we wanted; she was always focused on us being happy! She was patient and each lesson allowed for as much time as we needed to recap (make sure you do your practice homework!).

I would highly recommend taking lessons with Elizabeth whether or not it’s for a wedding dance. We are planning to go back just for fun! It was such a wonderful experience and we couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Best last second decision we made in our planning process! It is absolutely worth every penny!”

Laine Thomas & Bobby Potrykus

“I purchased several dance lessons for my daughter and her fiance a couple of months prior to there wedding. My girlfriend and I decided to double up with them for the lessons, and I have to say that it was a brilliant decision. We had a tremendous amount of fun meeting up each week for the lessons, I got to see my new son-in-law interact in a whole different way with my daughter and I learned what a great sport he is. The lessons that we took together created a new bond among all of us, and being able to step up and actually dance at the wedding was special for all of us.

Dennis was an incredible instructor! He was patient and encouraging and his talent for making us all feel at ease was a total pleasure. Our confidence level was high and within the first hour he had us moving gracefully across the dance floor. All-in-all the dance lessons were one of the highlights of the entire wedding experience, and for sure they were the best value. My girlfriend and I intend to continue lessons with Dennis for both the fun as well as the physical and mental work out. ”

Mike & Sharon

“Gabriel and I wanted something fun and exciting that all of our guests would enjoy for our first dance. We also included our bridal party of 12 for our surprise dance!!! When we meet Elizabeth she made us feel welcomed and comfortable. Elizabeth is not only an amazing choreographer she is fun, encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, full of great ideas and positive energy. We totally surprised and wowed our guests with our first dance and received many complements from everyone! We loved everything about our dance and wouldn’t change anything at all. This was exactly what we were going for and especially what I wanted. We highly recommend Elizabeth for couples looking to prepare for their first dance or anyone wanting to take dance lessons. Thank you Elizabeth you are awesome!”

Gabriel & Erica Alatorre

“Maren is excellent! She is a great instructor because she challenges you to your level and knows how to point small things out to improve your overall technique and dance.”

Kristen M.

“My fiancé and I were in the final week looking for dance lessons. We tried another instructor and found his teaching didn’t fit with our laid back, casual style. We came upon Dennis with The Wedding Dance Coach and expressed our concerns and what we were looking for in a first dance. Dennis took our requests and put together a perfect dance for us that had enough structure to look nice but casual enough to not look ridged and unauthentic. He got us feeling very comfortable dancing together and in only two lessons (with extra practice at home) we were all set for our first dance. I highly recommend working with Dennis and really appreciate all he did to get our reception started off on the right foot (pun intended).

Thanks again Elizabeth and to Dennis as well!”

John & Malorie Booren

“Maren Waldman was a fantastic dance coach! We scheduled lessons with her before our July wedding to increase the probability of us looking like we knew what we were doing – and it worked! Maren was patient, creative and super fun to work with – she really helped us inject some of our own personalities into the dance as well! We thoroughly enjoyed our dance and so did our guests – thanks Maren!!”

Katie & Jeffery

“This was truly a wonderful experience for my son and I – one we will cherish forever. It doesn’t take Elizabeth long to hear your music and put a dance with your abilities together and make you look smashing! We had so much fun and felt like professional dancers performing in front of all the wedding guests and the guests loved it! So much better than just swinging side to side together and everyone looking bored and talking while your doing your special mother/son dance. Knock their socks off! Elizabeth can help you do that with ease. It will become one of your most cherished memories. Thanks, Elizabeth for making us look so good and for the fun!”

Mother of the Groom, Karen Perry

“My husband and I took two private lessons with Dennis before our wedding. We knew absolutely nothing about dancing – we didn’t even have a song picked out! – but really wanted to feel comfortable during our first dance. Dennis did a wonderful job of providing us with a simple yet beautiful routine. We felt completely confident on our wedding day and nailed the dance perfectly, thanks to Dennis! Not that he’d ever admit it, but I think my husband even enjoyed the lessons!”

Whitney & Ross Johnson

“Elizabeth is a great dance teacher and is fun to work with! She helped us create and learn a unique father-daughter dance for my daughter’s wedding…and she made it fun. Neither my daughter nor I had previously done any dancing or had any dance instruction. As a result we were confident that we were ready and the guests loved it!”

Father of the Bride, John Petrey

“Wedding Dance Coach is absolutely wonderful! My now husband, myself, and both of our parents took a lesson together to prepare for our wedding dances. We were all really nervous about dancing in front of such a large group of people, seeing as none of us are very graceful or coordinated. Maren was so patient and understanding with our untalented group. She taught us all of the basic steps, then added moves to make each dance fun and unique. The best part was that the moves she taught us were moves that we could do….and well! I never thought I would be saying this, but not only did we nail our dances at the wedding, we enjoyed ourselves too! We owe it all to Maren’s wonderful coaching…Thank you Maren!”

Meggie Lawson

“My husband and I took 5 lessons with Dennis in Denver for our first dance and it was wonderful! Dennis was so patient and enthusiastic with us – he choreographed a dance that was classic and fun! He incorporated our personalities perfectly and helped us nail the whole thing. Our first dance was one of our favorite moments of the evening and really got our guests on their feet for the rest of the party! Great Job!”

Reid & Dan

“Elizabeth was fantastic to work with and gave me the confidence I needed on our big day. Having a choreographed dance that was easy to learn allowed my husband and I to enjoy the moment even more than imagined. During the wedding, our dance to Diamond Rio’s Meet in the Middle, entertained our guests and really kicked off the reception on a great note. I looked forward to using the moves Elizabeth created for us, and we had a blast executing her choreography with photos to last a lifetime! My husband I highly recommend using her services, and I wish my Dad lived in Boulder so that we could have created the Father/Daughter dance with her as well!”

Susan Wesley & Chris McReynolds

“As a dance novice, I was quite intimidated by the thought of performing a first dance at our wedding reception, and it actually gave me more anxiety than most other aspects of our wedding planning. Thanks to Dennis, it turned out being the most fun part of our wedding preparations! He’s very easy going, helps you build confidence by starting with the basics then adds on challenges that suit your growing abilities. He put Alana and I at ease from our first steps in the studio together, and helped us develop into very competent performers for our show. Our Sunday dance lesson “dates” gave us many laughs, and strengthened our relationship leading up to the wedding. We had a great time dancing for our guests, but the journey there with Dennis was best part of the experience!”

Alana & Doug

“I never thought a Father/Daughter dance would be so much fun and so special. But it was. Elizabeth was great from beginning to the end: from choreography to teaching to her encouragement, she could not have been better. Having no rhythm and having not ever done a waltz before, I was amazed at how good we really were. Being able to participate with my daughter in the rehearsals and the day of the wedding was very special for me and made the wedding a very warm, wonderful and memorable event. I will never forget it. Thanks Elizabeth. You are awesome.”

Father of the Bride, Mark H.

“My husband and I got married in August 2014, and we met with Dennis on three occasions to improve our moves! Things went so well, my dad and I also took three lessons so that we would feel confident on the dance floor too. Dennis is a great teacher and was extremely patient with us. I highly recommend him!”

Molly

“Pete and I took dance lessons from Elizabeth for our first wedding dance. When we walked into Elizabeth’s studio for the first time, I knew we had scored ourselves a wonderful dance coach. She is truly OUTSTANDING! Even before our first lesson, Elizabeth was extremely helpful and took extra time to help us pick out our song. She truly made our wedding day very special for both of us, as well as our guests. Our guests really got into our dance and many were very surprised that we could pull off such a fun dance. Pete and I have commented several times about how much fun we had with Elizabeth over the 6 lessons. She definitely allowed us to take the wedding stress away during the lessons and while practicing between lessons. This experience allowed my husband and I to connect in a very fun and unique way. She is very talented and we thank her for working with us, and providing us something we will always hold dear to our hearts.”

Pete & Tamera Rynshoven

“Let me just start by saying that if there is one thing you do to prepare for your wedding, I think dance lessons should be it! My fiancé and I really did not plan to take dance lessons prior to our August 2014 wedding. We thought it would be one more thing to stress about leading up to the event. Then just a couple months prior to the wedding, we both got really nervous about our first dance, and we contacted the Wedding Dance Coach. Because we wanted to take our lessons in Denver, we worked with Dennis Severnson. Dennis was awesome to work with! He made us both feel so comfortable. We explained to him that we didn’t want strict choreography, just some basic moves we could use. He definitely put a lot of thought into our dances. He was always on time and professional for lessons, and he managed to squeeze in six lessons with us so close to our wedding.

One thing that was totally unexpected for both of us was how much fun we had taking the lessons. Planning a wedding is hard, but my partner and I both found that the dance lessons reconnected us. They took our mind off the planning of the event, and they gave us an excuse to be in each other’s arms for a full hour at a time. Dennis was so helpful to work with, and he took video of us practicing with our ipad. We could then look back at that at home as we practiced. Our first dance went off without a hitch, and when it came time to do it, neither of us was nervous. It was so much fun, and it was great to see the looks of surprise and delight on our guests’ faces as they realized we had taken dance lessons and actually knew how to dance.

I used to think that dance lessons were only for fearless, outgoing couples. My fiancé and I are both relatively shy, and neither of us is very coordinated. The lessons were so fun, our dances at the reception were such a success, and I would highly recommend Dennis for your wedding dance lessons!”

Alyson & Anne

“Greg and I wanted to have a first dance that would set the tone for an awesome evening. We are SO GLAD we enlisted the help of Elizabeth. She created a lively, fun first dance that was so ‘us’ – it even incorporated our signature fist pump dance move (yes we are classy 🙂 ). Our guests are still raving about the dance. Greg and I really had a great time working with Elizabeth – we loved going to our dance lessons so much that we hope to take some more lessons from her in the future!”

Beth & Greg Nikolayevsky

“Dennis was instrumental in making our surprise mother/son dance the highlight of the Wedding Reception, where we got “THE PARTY STARTED”!! Dennis was very helpful from our first contact by email, answering all the questions we had, and throughout all our dance sessions, were he worked with us on choreography. Even taking our suggestions on what felt comfortable to us. Our dance sessions were a lot of fun. Dennis was non threatening, easy going and never judgmental. Jay and I were both nervous when we started our dance that night, but when the crowd started cheering and loving our dance moves it was well worth the time and money we spent!!”

Mother of the Groom, Vicki

“We have Elizabeth and our five dance lessons to thank for such a great reception- what a difference she made for us. While I had years of dance experience, Gary had only been dancing a few times. Initially, he was resistant to even doing a first dance. Elizabeth choreographed our first dance which allowed us to both be comfortable out on the dance floor. Our first dance was wonderful. But, something I am even more grateful for is that during the evening we found ourselves on the dance floor under the stars enjoying the night with our guests. Without Elizabeth I know those moments would have never happened. Thank you for the first dance, the last dance of the evening, and all the dances in between.”

Victoria & Gary Campbell

“My wife and I recently got married and Elizabeth helped us with our wedding dance. In addition to dance lessons, she also helped choreograph our first dance together as a married couple. We received quite a few compliments from wedding guests about what a great dance it was. And as someone who doesn’t really like to dance, I actually enjoyed learning how to dance thanks to Elizabeth.

Elizabeth was always in good spirits and excited to teach. She’s knowledgeable about a wide variety of dance styles, from ballroom to hip hop. If you’re looking for someone to teach you how to dance, we highly recommend Elizabeth. She’s passionate, knowledgeable and fun. She’s exceptional!”

Valentine S.

“On behalf of the wedding party for Erica and Gabriel Alatorre, We want to Thank Elizabeth, for the AMAZING job she did in helping us put a surprise dance for the wedding guests. It was a great turn out! And I must say after watching the video… We were pretty darn good!! The crowd wanted more. Elizabeth was fun to work with. She is patient, fun, professional, on time, and her personality is awesome! I would Definitely hire her again and again. She is spectacular with choreography! Her hourly rate is extremely reasonable. She is highly highly recommended. We loved everything about her!!! Good luck & Thanks for reading.”

Anabel Tellez

“Simon and I signed up for group lessons a few months before our wedding. We have 4 left feet between us so we wanted to learn some “moves”. We had so much fun at the group lessons learning the basic steps for ballroom, swing, salsa, etc that we decided to have Elizabeth choreograph our first dance! We practiced in between each lesson and by the time the wedding was here we were ready! Elizabeth really worked with us to find moves that we were able to do but was still original and fun. She prepared new material but could also make changes on the fly if we needed to. The guests LOVED our dance performance and it really set the tone for the rest of the night! We had so much fun learning our dance and it will always be a special part of our big day to look back on!”

Christine & Simon Buckler

“Elizabeth is an incredible dance coach! I would definitely recommend her for any type of dance you want to learn. My husband and I wanted to create an exciting and unique first dance and Elizabeth came up with amazing ideas to choreograph our vision. Elizabeth is enjoyable to work with and always has a great attitude. Our first dance was truly everything we wanted it to be. Thanks Elizabeth for your help!”

Rob & Miki Jenkins

“Elizabeth was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I knew that we needed dance lessons for our first dance, especially since neither of us are very coordinated. After doing some research, we saw that Elizabeth would also choreograph the dance and we knew that was the perfect choice for us! In just three lessons, she had choreographed a danced for us and made it look wonderful! It was amazing how quickly she listened to the music and came up with easy dance moves that looked great with it! Our dance was a huge hit at the wedding! All our guests loved it, no one could stop talking about it at the wedding! I would definitely recommend using Elizabeth for wedding dance lessons. She was great to work with, she was able to accommodate us last minute when we needed to re-schedule a lesson, and she was always easy to get in touch with. She made us feel comfortable during lessons, gave us great feedback, and choreographed an amazing dance for us!”

Amy & David

“My dad and I took lessons with Elizabeth before my wedding for our father-daughter dance. Neither my dad nor I knew how much excitement our choreographed dance would bring, but we blew it out of the park! The dance was perfect. People talked about it all night and shared videos for weeks after. The lessons were fun and Elizabeth did a great job of tailoring the dance to fit our specific needs. As an instructor, Elizabeth is knowledgeable, energetic, and a blast to work with. Whatever your dance occasion is — Elizabeth is your girl!”

Jordan Etter

“We took some small group lessons from Elizabeth because it sounded like a fun way to practice some traditional dancing before our wedding. She was so much fun with her enthusiastic, spunky spunky style that we decided almost at the last minute to try and get a private lesson to choreograph our first dance with her. She worked with our late plea, and spent an hour with us 3 days before our wedding. With her support and flexibility, we ended up with a great dance that we and our guests loved. Thanks Elizabeth!”

Heather & Jeremy Fobes

“How can we ever express the extent to which Elizabeth’s outstanding talent, guidance, friendship, and expertise made our wedding day so magical? Thank you, Elizabeth, for giving us the gift of the perfect fairytale dance to complete our perfect fairy tale! Now that we have embarked upon the “happily ever after” part, we look back on our wedding night—and particularly on those special moments Elizabeth created for us to share without our dance itself—as a pure expression of our love for one another. Elizabeth truly took the time and the care to understand us as a couple, and she worked diligently to accommodate our vision, style, and ability within the proven framework of her own choreography and solid skills. We had an absolute blast, and our guests are still talking about ‘the best wedding dance they’ve ever seen!”

Michelle & Matthew Watson

“Elizabeth was amazing! With only a few short weeks before our wedding my husband and I decided to take lessons and my dad and I decided to do a surprise dance. She was very flexible with her schedule. Within two lessons, she had my husband and I dancing a great 1st dance and after only five lessons my father and I had a great surprise dance that everyone will be talking about for a very long time. None of us are great dancers, but she made it simple to learn. She was a lot of fun to work with and she definitely helped to make my wedding unforgettable. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to take lessons.”

Hilarie Foster

“My fiance and I decided with a few weeks out to take dance lessons to liven up our first dance for our wedding. After just two lessons, Elizabeth pulled together and taught us a wonderful dance that we are thrilled to surprise our family and friends with! We would highly recommend Elizabeth for any couples looking to make their first dance a memorable one. She was a joy to work with, a wonderful teacher and we are so grateful for all her help.”

Lindsey Boxer

“Elizabeth went above and beyond in making sure that we had the perfect first dance! Each move was beautifully choreographed, and she is an excellent teacher who can enable even the most challenged dancers to become confident performers. We were a little nervous about the lessons at first, but Elizabeth’s positive attitude made it a really fun experience! We cannot thank her enough. Through her patient guidance and impressive dancing skills, you can count on her to make your dance truly memorable!”

Brandy & Nick Anderson

“Elizabeth Marberry is a great dance instructor. She helped my husband who hated dancing and refused to dance ever, to get comfortable enough to do it in front of all of our guests at our wedding and he danced all night. She took our wedding song and created a customized dance to match the song and us. Our dance was really easy to learn, but looked like we’d be practicing forever. Thanks Elizabeth, our wedding dance wouldn’t of happened without you!”

Lori & Gary Whitesides

“Elizabeth is a terrific dancer and teacher! We really enjoyed working with her. In just four short group sessions, Elizabeth was able to take us through several dance styles. In our private session, she was able to take these learned dance styles along with several other surprise dance moves to help us create a dance that was memorable and creative. Elizabeth was easy to work with and made two novice dancers feel at ease. She has great energy and enthusiasm, which made us look forward to each of our dance sessions. We highly recommend Elizabeth for couples looking to prepare for their first dance. ”

Valerie & Justin Cole

“Elizabeth is a complete sweetheart and so wonderful to work with. My husband and I were not at all comfortable with dancing and she was able to give us a routine that we were not only relaxed doing but we had a great time on the dance floor! We cannot thank Elizabeth enough for making our first wedding dance unforgetable!”

Caitlin McBrair & Kevin Mayer

“Our first dance set the tone for the evening, with everyone dancing straight through the night until last call! We were amazed by the quality of the dance we learned in only five lessons. Our guests loved it! There were cheers throughout and compliments afterwards that it was one of the best choreographed dances they’d seen! Elizabeth was so much fun to work with and always positive. She challenged us but didn’t give us more than we could handle. Thank you so much!”

Shannon Kishel & Justin Koller

“Elizabeth was wonderful! I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted for our first dance and she really made it come to life. My husband and I are pretty quick learners when it comes to dance and Elizabeth put a couple challenges in there for us which made our first dance look spectacular! She was SO easy to work with, professional, and I felt like she really cared about us and wanted our dance to be perfect, which it was. Thanks Elizabeth!”

Courtney & Robert Pomeroy

“My husband and I highly recommend Elizabeth for any type of dancing you may want to learn. She is a very energetic, outgoing, and knowledgeable dance instructor. She put together our first wedding dance routine and made it so fun and easy to learn! Also, she asks for your input as to what you are looking for and what you want your dance to look like. Our first dance was amazing, we had so many people that were so shocked and everyone loved it! We highly recommend her for couples with upcoming weddings!”

Sarah Einck

“If you need dance lessons, Elizabeth Marberry is the person you should see. She is fun, encouraging, enthusiastic and full of great ideas. My husband and daughter needed to do a father-daughter dance for her wedding, but my husband doesn’t dance, and our daughter was out of the country. We set up two lessons, one for me and my husband so he (and I) could get the general idea of basic waltz steps, and the second for when my daughter came to town and they could “choreograph” a simple dance together. Elizabeth was able to put together a beautiful, creative dance for them to realistically learn only 4 days before the wedding . I cried when they practiced together in the studio, the guests cried at the wedding. Thanks Elizabeth.”

“Congratulations!! Your search is now over as you have just found the best choreographer in the Denver area.
We totally surprised and wowed our guests with our first dance as husband and wife thanks to Elizabeth. This was our first dancing experience and we had no idea what we were doing or what to expect. Elizabeth made us feel very comfortable right away and was easy to work with, plus she is very positive and encouraging!! Elizabeth is a very passionate and talented dancer / teacher which shows in every lesson that she gives. She is also very creative and was able to take our music selections, assess our dancing abilities, and create a custom routine that was fun, fresh, contemporary, and fit our ability level. The looks on peoples faces when the music began to skip, after slow dancing for a bit, then come back in to up tempo 80′s tunes was priceless. Here we are a week and a half later and people are still talking about how awesome our first dance was. We are so pleased and grateful for all the positive help and guidance that we received. Thank You Elizabeth for making our first dance so fun and memorable.”

“Elizabeth helped us get ready for our dreaded first dance. I had the “blessing” of being raised by my mother who sent me to cotillion when I was young but my lovely wife was not so lucky. As she put it she “has two left feet and zero coordination”. Elizabeth was able to help us come up with a wonderful and fun routine that both of us felt comfortable with in a very fun environment. Everyone at our wedding LOVED our dance and it’s a memory we will cherish forever. Thanks Elizabeth!”

Mike Walters & Juanita Mestas

“Our first dance was, hands-down, the highlight of our wedding reception and EVERYONE loved it. Complete and total success. We owe it all to Elizabeth! We had two songs edited back-to-back, and the choreography she created was fun, entertaining, and memorable. This was the best decision we made in the entire wedding process, and would recommend Elizabeth to any bride/groom couple who wants to look amazing performing their first dance!”

Hunter & Stephanie Barto

“Thank you for helping to make our Wedding Day a Dream Come true! Our First Dance was the Highlight of the Night. We couldn’t be more blessed that we had you as our Teacher and as our Biggest Fan! We can’t thank you enough for helping us pull off this Surprise 1st Dance! We had the ‘Time of our Lives’ performing it. Thank you for Everything~ We just adore you, your talents, and creativity!”

Lance & Melissa Krisl

“Elizabeth is not only an amazing dancer, she is an amazing teacher and choreographer. She made sure that we would not only learn the dance-perfectly-but that we would have a great time. She choreographed a dance that four amateurs could learn quickly and easily and would look terrific doing.

We had a wonderful time performing and the guests thought we were a professional dance crew. Amazing!

My daughter said it was the highlight of her wedding and the kind of surprise everyone wishes and hopes for. The best gift anyone gave her. Thank you so much.”

Paulette Fire

“My wife and I strongly recommend Elizabeth Marberry as a dance instructor. We worked with Elizabeth the summer before our youngest daughter’s wedding. Our goal was to improve our dancing for our opening dance and my dancing for the father-daughter dance as well as learn some current dance steps and routines for the wedding and parties in general. Elizabeth was very patient with us and made us feel very comfortable and not embarrassed. And most importantly Elizabeth was so enthusiastic and joyful about dance that she made our dancing lessons and our dancing fun.”

Chuck & Mira Perlman

“Our dance was fun, unique, and showed exactly who we are. You took five hours (which was so little time when I actually go back and look at it) and made something for us that we would never have been able to come up with on our own. Not only did you go above and beyond in choreographing, you truly cared about how our wedding and first dance went. I’m very impressed and very happy with how it came out. You are very talented and personable, and I look forward to working with you in the future.”

Kyle & Samantha Fuller

“I have no rhythm and two left feet but Elizabeth was patient and kind and worked with me (and my now husband) to create a beautiful first dance for our wedding that made me feel graceful and sexy. She helped us emphasize moments in the song that were important to us and she created sophisticated (feeling) moves that fit our skill level. Her choreography is captivating and her enthusiasm is contagious. The shock and surprise on the faces of my friends and family when we weren’t doing the “seventh-grade-slow-dance” move was priceless, not to mention the beautiful memory I have of my amazing first dance with the love of my life. Seven years later people who were at our wedding still comment on our dance.”

Alexis Schmitz

“Elizabeth coached us for our wedding and we wowed our guests. Our friends told us they were never so entertained by the bride and groom. Her talent and creativity made our dance a crowd pleaser and most important it pleased us. The best part is she teaches you enough to be a wow but she makes it simple and basic to remember. She’s fun and a pleasure to work with. She will take your wedding dance from typical to oomph!”

Janice Goldman Picker

“Elizabeth did a wonderful job choreographing our first dance! It was just our style – fun, flirty, casual, and above all it was something we could remember! During our classes, Elizabeth made us feel comfortable and she kept a fun environment. And, when we were slackers and hadn’t practiced in a while she gave us a gentle nudge/reminder without reprimanding us like a school teacher!

Having a choreographed first dance is an excellent thing – it’s one of the few things from our wedding that my husband and I can experience the rest of our lives as long as we play the music. Thanks Elizabeth!”

Kaylin Daniels

“Though Elizabeth did not work with my daughter in creating her first “Wedding Dance,” she did work with my daughter in creating a dancer! Elizabeth took a young, impressionable 12 year old with little dance experience and helped her develop dance skills that we never knew she could possess. Her ability to dance though, was only the icing on the cake. It was her increased self esteem and her healthy…more confident attitude that stands out in my mind. It was Elizabeth’s patience and warmth and her understanding of how to “teach” that made all the difference!”
