    I read the reviews and it seems that this has not been very popular at the weddings.

    I mean those who had them said they loved them, but it seems that not so many people have had them or did not post about them.

    I wanted some hired entertainment at the wedding but the firedancers were almost $1000 and that's alot...so Maye quoted me $400 for dancers and lessons for 45-60 min....

    So I think it would be a fun interactive activity but would appreciate everyone else's opinion...

      I think it sounds like fun and festive. Your guests will love it.

      We are having firedancers, but the cost is nowhere near $1K.

          I think that sounds like fun, it will get your guests pumped and everyone will have a great time and take something new with them when they get back home.

            I was hoping this would be something we could do for our welcome event that way guests could use their new moves at the wedding. We only have a private room for dancing for two hours after dinner and didn't want to take up one hour for lessons at the wedding. I'm not sure how much time you will have, but I definitely think it is a great idea.

              That's a good point about time....hmm...I need to go through the timeline again...

                Hey Michelle...I was wondering if you ended up booking the salsa dancers for your reception. My parents want me to inqure about this.

                We were quoted $1k for 4 dancers and a band with music. What were you quoted, if you don't mind me asking?

                  My FI is a proffessional Salsa Instructor he has performed and taught classes at many events oversea and in the states for private events, fund raisers, boat ridres etc...His price is $250 for an 1 hour dance lesson + 1 dance #'r.Optionally they would be able to do additional dance #'rs throughout the whole reception for an additional cost. Lastly Air fare would have to be provided for him and his partner

                    Hi! I photographed a wedding where the bride had a cousin who along with a partner led a salsa demonstration and lesson. It was a HUGE hit, it really got people moving and they actually were all doing the steps by the end! I think it is a great idea if you have a fun crowd. Also it makes for fun candid pictures of guests to have them up and doing something!
