Anxious about hitting the dance floor on your big day? Panic no more — local dance and social coaching biz, The 8Count, helps you build confidence and look awesome busting a move. Founder Annemarie “Ree” Estess coaches adult dancers through basic moves derived from funk, latin, and social dance forms. Zero dance experience required.
Let’s be honest here, I go to a lot of weddings, I mean ALOT and I’m getting to the point where I can say with some confidence that there isn’t much I haven’t seen. So today we’re going to chat about one of my favorite parts of the day, the first dance and the dances with your parents. This is often the point when I begin to cry for the 4th or 5th of the day, sometimes out of raw emotion, sometimes out of empathy for plethora of emotions parents feel when their children get married but most of the time out of pure joy and laughter for the excitement and happiness pouring out of everyone involved!
The point of this long winded description of the inner workings of my mind, is that to get up in a room full of people you love and be the center of attention while dancing can be super un-nerving when really it should be a blast! I’ve seen some fabulous dances from swing, to the dance from pulp fiction to totally choreographed mash ups and boy do I have some big dreams about what will go down at my wedding! So if you can’t dance, or at least not well or if you can but want to be better or your want to look like you won last seasons “Dancing with the Stars” then you have to know how to get there and I’ve found the perfect person for you!

“Annemarie is the absolute best! She helped my fiancé and I get ready for our wedding day, by getting us comfortable on the dance floor together and preparing us for our first dance. She made us feel at ease from the first minute, and we both genuinely had so much fun with her
