What's your style?


Bridal Dance

Traditionally the bridal dance of choice and fits most music. American Rumba is often referred to as "The Box Step" or "Bridal/Wedding Waltz". Another version also exists known as international Rumba. Check out youtube to compare the differences between these two styles.

You will find that many songs are not actually the correct rhythm for Waltz timing. However, if you do happen to find a song in 3/4 time and have a little extra time to master this beautiful dance, you'll be sure to leave your guests mesmerized by how timeless you both look.

A good match for songs with a slow or fast tempo, 4/4, big band music is most suitable, Frank Sinatra classic's, anything with a swing to it.

American Smooth / New Vogue
A style that allows breaking hold and fluidity between partners. Beautiful turns, lines and choreography, paired with the right music, can be an absolute show stopper!



YouTube / TikTok / Mash-Up
Dirty Dancing, Baby Got Back, Thriller, the list goes on and on…

Hip Hop, Old School, 50's/60's/70's/80's/90's, House, Dance or any other commercial music.
You Can Dance is the only studio in Melbourne that specialises in street based wedding routines. We have some seriously talented instructors who can create youtube-worthy routines!

How about Swing for a first dance?
A popular choice for couples wanting something 'different' other than a Hip Hop or freestyle dance.

"Scent of a Woman", "True Lies" and "Shall We Dance" are just a few movies that demonstrate how dramatic this style
could be for a wedding dance. Many different styles of the Tango exist; English, American and Argentine. If you can master this passionate dance, you'll have your guests hanging on every step you take!

Dirty Dancing has forever been a favourite wedding dance but there's also many other great latin songs which could be used
for a saucy looking routine. Also a great choice for most commercial music.

How many lessons will we need?

The most difficult question to answer without meeting you both first. After the first lesson you will have a better idea of what you can achieve within the time frame before your wedding date.

When should we start?

As soon as possible! Book in your first lesson, get all the information that you need, and meet with your own personal instructor who can help get you organised. We tend to get heavily booked during wedding season avoid booking at the last minute even if only having a few lessons. It's best to be prepared early, rather than rushing to finish your dance the final week of the wedding.

When can we book in?

The studio is open (by appointment) 7 days per week

9am - 11pm

" Thank you for your help in preparing a wedding routine for Susan and I. 
We had a fantastic day and were able to complete the dance with confidence and style!
Thanks for your patience and perseverance, even given the late changes. 
I liked the way you adapted your teaching style as we gained confidence and
the fact you were always extremely patient with both of us.  The homework exercises
were a big help also and helped us get the most from your lessons.
- Susan & Mark "
" Thank you so much for all your patience. We couldn't have asked
for a better dance teacher!! We certainly didn't expect to nail it after
our appalling final rehearsal but lucky that was only a rehearsal!!
- Anna & Andrew "
"We had Paul as our dance instructor and booking a 10 pass with him was probably
the most fun thing we did in our wedding planning. We were in cahoots every class,
and everyone at the wedding reception LOVED the dance he choreographed.
He is an amazing dance talent and such a great, patient teacher.
Thanks for all the fun Paul. We will see you soon.
- Grant & Lien "
" Thank you for all your help in teaching us to dance. One of our friends
(who regularly attends dance lessons) knew exactly what we were doing, although
I wasn't sure what he was calling our moves :). Also, on our honeymoon, we went
to an observation tower and had a dance. It was a truly romantic evening
and together with the wedding, ones we will never forget.
We will defiantly be back soon for some latin dance lessons.
- Louise & York "
"Thank you for helping to make the [wedding] day so special.
- Kira and Dion "
" We would both like to thank you very much for creating the most wonderful wedding dance for us. You helped make our wedding experience a truly amazing one and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We hope to have more lessons with you, so see you soon

"Thank you so much for your patience, support and guidance in helping us learn to waltz!
You were a great teacher and you got the most out of our limited potential!
We were told that our dance was very nice and we have only you to thank!

- Francis & May "
"Thanks again for your help with our last minute dance routine just 3 weeks before our wedding! You did an amazing job with us in such a short space of time. You made our dance lessons fun and enjoyable as you were so relaxed with us and made us feel comfortable that we could do it! On the night we convinced several people we could dance thanks to the start of the routine, despite the fact that our dance floor was on bouncy tropical grass and we felt like we were dancing on a waterbed! We still managed to pull it off and had loads of fun during our dance routine!

Thanks again. We love what you're doing and that your lessons are such good value! I hope to come in and have a go at some beginners hip hop!

- Melissa & David "
"We had such a great time learning the routine and our wedding guests absolutely loved it!
- Joanna & David "

We had a blast. And really enjoyed lessons with you.
- Ling & Lee "

"Dear Paul, thank you for teaching us how to dance for our wedding day. Our guests were very surprised and all said it was very romantic especially with the acoustic live music. Thank you for your invaluable knowledge.
- Hannah & Elliot"
"A very belated 'thank you' for teaching us to dance! What was created in a month was quite incredible... worthy of 10/10 scores on the night! Most couldn't believe it! We had such a great time learning and look forward to more lessons with you once the kids are bigger! Thank you again.
- Pauline & Brendan"
"You know what, I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart... We had so much more fun learning the moves and dancing with you guys then doing the dance on the actual night!
You are such delightful people to be around, we had so many laughs and so many arguments as to who was getting the moves right and wrong, but no.. its all your fault bub!
Are you leading or am I???? Haha! Thanks guys, I can't say enough!
- Kelly & Zen"
"Dear Paul & Vlad, We cannot thank you both enough for the unbelievable patience, effort and creativity when choreographing not one but two! amazing routines!! The crowd went wild and we loved every minute of it. We are so proud to be associated with You Can Dance Studio and our wedding guests will no doubt be lining up at your door very soon!
- Dorienne & Oran"

"Hi Alex!
Just a short note to say thanks from Jess and I for getting us up to speed so quickly.
Everyone joined us on the dancefloor before we even got halfway through our routine,
nevertheless, we didn't sway awkwardly or anything. I think we fooled everyone!
It was a great day. Thanks again for putting a bit of polish on it for us.
- Scot & Jess"
"Hi Nat!
Thanks for whipping us into shape in just 3 short weeks. We we're nervous, but we did it!
- Karina & Jason "
