"Recipe for Love" by Harry Connick Jr.
 Fox Trot / Swing


"I wondered if the non traditional song I selected was even possible for a wedding dance.

I sensed creativity and musicality from the first email response I received from Brandis.  She was aware of the melody variations within the music and was able to translate that into the appropriate styles of dance.  She creatively choreographed fun steps that fit our personalities, even incorporating my personal hobby with a touch of belly dance..." 

"...The dance confidence she ignited in Mano spurred a friendly competition between he and my dad.  Next thing I knew my dad was requesting that Brandis choreograph our father daughter dance!..."

"What a memorable surprise on the wedding day when our guests held up “Dancing with the Stars” score paddles following the routines.  I am so grateful to Brandis for making those special moments with my dad and husband so extraordinary."

From Brandis:

Shana and Mano were so much fun to work with.  They chose a great song, and we danced Fox Trot on the verses (with a bit of pantomime - as it told a story) and some great Swing on the very jazzy refrains.  Shana and Mano were ready to try anything I suggested.  The result was the perfect "Recipe for Love".

You remain one of our most memorable couples, and  we so enjoy seeing and hearing from you.  All the best from me and Jorge, and we look forward to seeing you both out on the Dance Floor.
