Our Biggest Regret

Our 1999 wedding was beautiful. Everything we imagined. Except for the one thing we forgot. We didn’t know how to dance. Our biggest regret is that for our own wedding all we did was “stand and sway” as if we were still in high school as if we didn’t realize just how long and excruciating the length of a song can be when all your guests are looking at you with that frozen smile on their faces.

Once We Got Married

We wanted a hobby to do together. We decided to take a dance class. That first lesson turned into an obsession that had us studying with master dance teachers far and wide and grew into a passion that turned into a full-time career when we began Got2Lindy Dance Studios in the Hudson Valley New York in 2004.

The Secret of our Success?

We have taught on cruise ships all over the world, but our home base is the Hudson Valley where we have taught hundreds of people the joy of dancing.

We learned as adults, so we understand all the fear of learning something new. That’s why we are so great at working with wedding couples. We get it. We’ve been there. Neither of us knew how to dance until we learned how, and we don’t expect our couples to have anything but a collection of left feet.

Learning to dance should be the fun part of your wedding planning. We want it to be something you both enjoy and treasure…and that you continue to dance together for the rest of your lives.

Who knew that when we took our first steps out on the dance floor, it would change our lives? We have been teaching swing and ballroom dance professionally since 2004 when we opened Got2Lindy Dance Studios. We teach group classes in Kingston, Highland, and Newburgh, NY, specializing in Lindy Hop, Charleston, Blues, and Balboa, as well as hold swing dances, workshops, and special events. We often headline and perform at the Spiegeltent.

Many of our students are wedding couples and parents who first started taking lessons in preparation for the wedding and then, like us, discovered a new hobby they could enjoy for the rest of their lives. If you are interested in group swing dance classes, visit our main site: got2lindy.com
