Let us create the First Dance
To Your Happily Ever After
Your wedding dance shouldn't feel like an overthought task. We'll make the dance serve you rather than you serving the dance. Let's make your dance vision come true with a variety of styles. Anything from a classic waltz, to a flirty salsa, or a playful Bollywood choreography. You name it- we make it!
Not only do we create a choreography, but we give you an actual understanding of the dance itself for you to enjoy on other occasions. It's all about YOU feeling comfortable and enjoying your special moment. That's our goal and promise.
And FYI, nobody has two left feet! You'll see.
LOCATION: Homebase for OUD is in San Gabriel/Pasadena CA. We have studio space both inside and outside, but upon special arrangements, we can also come to you. Either to your home or to a nearby dance studio.
Paulina is so incredibly talented and patient! I found Paulina through Yelp and booked 6 sessions with her for our wedding. Despite COVID, she was able to teach us safely, outdoors and with masks, and taught us how to dance in a way where we could use the same knowledge in the future. Instead of going straight into choreography for our wedding song, she taught us some moves that later we would be able to put together into the full song. To be honest I was very hesitant and a bit stressed about learning a dance for the wedding, but she gave us the building blocks and showed through her teaching the confidence I needed to dance on our special day. She knew our level of dance knowledge (which was basically zero) and she knows just what to look out for (ie. smile more, practice with wedding shoes) in order for brides to look their best on the big wedding day. She (and her husband David) are incredibly patient with their students, as they truly care about who they are working with. I truly am so thankful for such great teachers! Definitely recommend for your wedding choreography needs. She will work with you, no matter what type of dance (& difficulty) you're looking for!

"What an amazing experience!
We came with no expectations and no dance experience at all. Paulina was a fantastic teacher. She was always very positive and energetic. Paulina was very patient and she repeatedly showed and explained everything to us until we fully got it. During the covid, they were following covid protocol and we felt very safe. Thanks to David, Paulina's husband as he participated in the teaching. They together make the learning experience so much easier and much more enjoyable.
Paulina put a lot of extra effort and time into making our choreography fit our song and base it on ours need. She really wanted us to look perfect on our wedding day. We really appreciate her making our unique wedding dance and creating a memorable memory. She made the choreography worth it on our wedding day. It was the highlight of our wedding! I would definitely recommend Paulina and David for learning your wedding first dance, or any other dance!"

“Working with Paulina and David on our first dance for our wedding was such a true joy. My now-husband has never taken a dance class in his life, and this was a completely new situation for him. Paulina’s warm and positive demeanor set us both at ease and we both ended up truly having a blast. Our dance was a hit, and we had so much fun working with Paulina and David in the process! 10/10 would recommend them to anyone!”

"It was so nice having Paulina guide us through this process. She was able to accommodate our schedules (and moods!) with patience and a sense of humor. The choreography she created was perfect - it matched the tone of the music while incorporating in elements of our personal skill levels. We felt well taken care of, and would recommend her to anyone!"
Your wedding dance doesn't have to be all serious! Araceli and Otavio are living proof of that! It was so much fun to teach them and witness how well they work together.
"My husband and I met Paulina in 2019. She taught us how to do a rumba for our first dance at our wedding. We can't say enough wonderful things about Paulina. She was skilled and ever-so-patient with us. Plus she was so much fun to be around - her wonderful, can-do attitude actually made us believe we could get out there in front of all of our friends and family and dance!!! And we did!! We loved our experience with Paulina and we highly recommend her! She's the best:)"
