“My dad and I were a hit of my wedding because of Jenny! Our dance blew everyone away!! During one of our lessons we decided to make some changes and add a second song, Jenny was flexible and willing to work with us. We loved getting to spend our time with her once a week as it gave my Dad and I an opportunity to have one-on-one time, relax and have fun. We learned some amazing skills and it just made me want to continue to dance more! I highly recommend Jenny and we will miss getting to see her once a week :). “
—Nicole & Dad (Father/Daughter Dance) 2018
“We LOVED Jenny! She was one of the best dance teachers we have ever had! Jenny knows how to make every dance lesson feel personal and genuine. She really tries to get to know you and your personality to tailor the lesson to your knowledge, style, and taste. In fact, we can guarantee you that you will be smiling the whole lesson and won't even realize the 45 minutes has gone by!
Ally and I danced on our first date. For both of us it holds a special place in our heart. It was really important to us to choose the right dance instructor, and we couldn't have made a better choice. Our wedding ended up being a little unorthodox because it was completely flooded. It was a day where we had to abandon our shoes and roll up our pants, but it didn't matter. After all, it was the day we were starting the rest of our lives together.
We know choosing your dance instructor may seem like another task on a wedding list, but she was crucial in making our night one of the best nights of our lives. Jenny came up with a fantastic routine that we danced our heart out to, on a dance floor that was slowly sinking into the mud. We highly recommend choosing her for any of your dancing needs!”

“Annapolis social dance rocks! So, my now wife and I wanted to prepare a dance for our wedding. We contacted Jenn, set up a lesson and provided our song. Upon our arrival Jenn already had a base dance ready for us. On our first lesson I remember being nervous, the nervous feeling didn’t last long! It left about 5 minutes in when my partner and I were smiling and laughing the whole time. We immediately booked recurring lessons and couldn’t wait until the next visit! It was great night out for us during this stressful and tumultuous time of our lives. OK, so fast forward to the big day. We danced so fluid and comfortable it was like we were back in Jenn’s studio. Every move we practiced was landed smooth and precise. We received so much praise and positive feedback it felt great. We will continue to take lessons from Annapolis Social Dance and plan to join a group lesson soon!” — Adam and Kait, (Married 2018)
“Jen was so great to work with! This was the first time my fiancé and I took dance lessons and she made it so comfortable and achievable. She was always prepared with a plan and suggestions, including song suggestions!By the time the big day came, we were so well-practiced having a hundred people watch us was no biggie. If you want to even just brush up on your dance moves, or come up with a plan, make an appointment with Jennifer! She’s super flexible, and will even come to your home to help fine-tune your dance moves. We were so happy we found her and made our first dance as Mr. & Mrs. go perfectly!”
— Andrea & Eric (Married 2017)
"We have had so much fun learning from Jenny. She has been wonderful to work with. Originally we did not know which styles of dance to learn but definitely wanted it to fit in practically with our social lives. We've mostly taken private lessons on social foxtrot and club swing. Both are a lot of fun with many variations of steps. The group lessons are nice too. A great way to meet people and learn from others. Jenny has made us feel comfortable and keeps us coming back for more. We enjoy practicing outside of class and look forward to each lesson. It's rewarding to see we're continuing to improve. Without Annapolis Social Dance we would not have confidently performed our wedding first dance. Can't wait to incorporate more dance styles." - Oona & Andy (Married 2017)
"Working with Jenny at Annapolis Social Dance exceeded our expectations. Jenny made us feel very comfortable right away, she is very personable. After sharing our first dance song, Jenny knew right away that she wanted to teach us a rumba. Our first dance was perfectly choreographed, we received so many compliments at our wedding.
Jenny has a real talent for differentiating her dance instruction to each person. My husband and I had uneven experience in dance, but still she was able to give us both what we needed to be successful. I highly recommend Annapolis Social Dance for all of your wedding dance needs. Also, be sure to check out the other group classes they offer, which are a lot of fun!" --Christina & Ben (Married in 2017)
"I am not a dancer and was afraid of stepping on my son's toes during our mother-son dance at his wedding reception. Jenny is an extremely patient and skilled instructor and gives easy-to-understand instructions. She had invaluable input on the type of dance that would fit the song we had chosen, and made our time together taking lessons from her both fun and rewarding." -- Kay, 2017
"The best part of wedding planning was taking dance lessons from Jenny for our first dance. Neither of us had any experience when it came to dancing, we even joked about how terrible we were so we thought taking lessons may be a good idea. Jenny was so easy to work with and she was so helpful and patient with us. Each lesson was so much fun and was such a great way to escape all the hectic wedding planning. Our dance went to so perfectly and our friends and family were impressed since no one knew we were taking private lessons." --Ashley & Steve (Married in 2016)
"Working with Jenny was amazing! My husband and I are both completely uncoordinated and had no prior dance experience before our lessons with Jenny. She was such a great instructor and helped us put together an amazing first dance for our wedding day. She is extremely personable, professional and informative. It truly was one of my favorite experiences while planning our wedding!" --Julie (Married in 2015)
"Working with Jenny for our first dance was one of the easiest and best decisions my husband and I made leading up to our wedding. Prior to meeting with Jenny, my husband had very little dancing experience and wasn’t very comfortable dancing in public, but Jenny’s enthusiastic, fun and outgoing personality made him (and me!) feel at ease and he greatly enjoyed the lessons. From our first meeting, Jenny helped match our first dance song to the perfect style. As we progressed, Jenny helped us incorporate new moves, but always at a pace with which we were comfortable. On the day of our wedding, we felt so calm and excited to show off our dance moves and it was such an amazing experience stepping out onto that dance floor. With Jenny as your teacher, you will be so pleased with your results, and you’ll want to keep hanging out with her even after your lessons are done!" --Eve (Married 2015)
“We cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Annapolis Social Dance and working with Jenny in preparation for our first dance! When we look back on the wedding planning process, taking dance lessons with Jenny stands out as a highlight! We initially decided to take dance lessons to avoid just swaying back and forth during our first dance and we ended up having a lot of fun learning our first dance in the process! We took approximately 8 lessons and we also each took a lesson with our dad/mom, respectively, for a little help with the parent dances. Jenny is so friendly, accommodating, easy to work with, and she makes learning to dance for people who have NO clue how so much fun! We had a blast taking lessons and most importantly, taking lessons enabled us to have so much fun with our first dance on our wedding day! We would recommend working with Annapolis Social Dance to anyone looking to learn how to dance!”
—Darcy and Rob (Married 2018)
“Taking lessons with Jenny for our first dance was one of the best wedding planning decisions we could have made! We had no prior dancing experience and Jenny knew just what to do with us. From the beginning, we mentioned that we did not want a fully choreographed routine because we didn't want to forget anything. She taught us basic steps and how to do different kinds of turns that we could throw into the dance whenever. Going to the dance lessons was the highlight of our weeks. We enjoyed spending the time together, and with Jenny. She is very personable and cares about her clients. She made it a priority to ensure that we were 100% ready for our wedding night. On our last lesson, Jenny allowed us to bring our parents along so we could get a practice father-daughter and mother-son dance lesson. It worked out perfectly because we all felt comfortable on the dance floor at the wedding. We highly recommend going to see Jenny for lessons!!”
— Alexa & Jordan (Married 2018)
“My husband and I sought out Jenny after we got engaged. We wanted to put together a first dance, and also get some basic skills. Neither of us had ever taken lessons before, but Jenny made us feel comfortable from the start. She is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. She even texted me a video of her and her friend doing our dance in her living room, the day before the wedding when I couldn’t remember some of the moves - what a lifesaver! We had an amazing time dancing at our wedding, and the weeks of practicing in class beforehand were very enjoyable too. We always look forward to showing off our moves whenever we get the chance, now.
We also set my parents up with Jenny and they did so well, my dad was able to guide me through our entire father-daughter dance without us ever having practiced it before. We visited Jenny one year later for a refresher course before our 1st Anniversary Party. She squeezed us in on short notice and was able to get us right back on track! She’s the best!”
— Amanda & Daniel (Married 2017)
"Mike and I are so happy we found Annapolis Social Dance!
Jenny is relatable, friendly, and took a genuine interest in getting to know us. She also was careful to keep things in our comfort zone, but also made us step outside of our 'dancing box' a time or two. Our guests were wowed by some of the moves, including a dip to conclude the first dance.
Looking back, this was one of the best decisions we made with respect to the wedding. Not only did it allow us to be at ease going into our first dance, but it also allowed us to share quality time together during a very stressful time.
With Mike being out of state for the six months leading up to our wedding, Jenny was also accommodating and flexible with scheduling our dance lessons.
Mike and I enjoyed our dance lessons so much, that we also signed up our parents to practice our father/daughter and mother/son dances. Jenny was sure to keep them comfortable during the lessons. They loved the whole experience, and told us how much they'll cherish this time spent with us before the wedding." — Alison & Mike (Married 2017)
"My fiance and I had a Groupon for 2 dance lessons at Annapolis Social Dance on just off West St. We went hoping to have a few giggles and learn a step or two. We got both! Jenny, the owner ( along with her husband), is welcoming, warm, low key and a wonderfully fun instructor. She will structure the lessons to meet your objectives and make learning to dance fun and easy. We've had a great time so far and plan to continue with Jenny. We could not recommend her more highly. Maybe we will see you there!" — Doug (2017)
"We LOVE Jenny (and her husband)! She is a GREAT dance teacher... it's such fun to have lessons with her. She is very skilled, she listens to what you want to get of the experience and is very encouraging. The dance studio is awesome. We would definitely recommend you put dance lessons with Jenny on your things to do list!! We just wanted to 'move' better on the dance floor, when we have occasions to dance. Now, we have a dance together most days in our kitchen! :)" --Sheila (2017)
"I am so happy that we took private dance lessons with Jenny at Annapolis Social Dance before our wedding. I am not the type of person who wants to be on the dance floor just swaying back and forth, that's so boring for us and our guests! We told her our song and Jenny knew right away the type of dance we would do. It was easy to learn, and not overly complicated! Jenny is a great teacher! We were a bit nervous but she was clear, patient, and encouraging! She made us feel so comfortable when we were definitely out of our comfort zone. We received so many compliments on our first dance. I would highly recommend Jenny to anyone getting married, or anyone who wants to learn something new just for fun. She is amazing!" -- Katie & Lane (Married in 2016)
"Jenny is such a great teacher! We enjoyed her salsa class.. She made the class fun and easy to learn!!! We will be back for all her classes. We also got to mingle and meet new people!!" --Kimi (2016)
"My husband and I have known Jenny since elementary school because we both happened to be in the same class as her younger brother. She has always been such an outgoing and easy to talk to person. When my husband and I got engaged, we immediately thought of asking Jenny to help us with our first dance since we both had no idea what to do. We had seen how she had choreographed her brother's first dance (he is not a dancer by any means) and were so impressed by the result! We started about 7 months before our wedding date and she met with us once a week at my parent's house. She really knew how to start with the basics with us because we had no prior training at all! She was extremely patient and walked us through each step of our first dance. She even helped us think of a song!
Just about 5 months before the wedding she choreographed and taught my dad and I our Father-Daughter dance, and just a month before she worked with my husband and his mom on their Mother-Son dance. The whole group of us are not dancers by any means. She was patient and didn't push us to do anything we were not comfortable with. By the end, even we were amazed at how far we had come. She would record the steps so we could practice during the week and we wowed our family and friends at our wedding when we stepped onto the dance floor. Thank you so much Jenny for helping us have an unforgettable first dance!" --Michelle (Married in 2015)
"Taking dance lessons from Jenny before our wedding was one of the best decisions we made while planning the day! Jenny is a wonderful, patient teacher who makes the lessons both productive and fun. She explains the dance steps thoroughly and works with you to make sure you understand and master the basics. The hour-long sessions flew by because we were learning so much while also having a good time. Thanks to Jenny's instruction and critiques, we progressed each week and were able to build on the moves we had learned. Our first dance was such a special memory from the wedding. We had a blast and surprised our guests with our rumba. Their reactions were priceless! We are very happy that we invested in the lessons with such a skilled and lovely teacher.
