Brides and their wedding parties, family members and friends can also celebrate upcoming nuptials with a pre-wedding social dance class and performance.

Please note that when Monica is booked as the dancer for your wedding reception no other events are booked at all that day in order to keep the couple stress free and not worrying about any unforeseeable events that can cause slight delays. This is why there is a slightly higher fee–there is no price for peace of mind on your wedding day!

Additional travel fees may be applied for other parts of the Bay Area and California.
Monica has traveled all over the Western states to perform.

We want to work with you to make your event perfect!
