NBC's "I dO"  WITH bwd director pETER JONES

BWD -  Established in 1994

They studied with Peter: Patina Miller (Tony award winner: Pippin) and David MarsEric Trump and Lara Yunaska; Tom Mendoza (Vice Chairman NetApp) and Tai Rodriguez,  A&E FYI's channel Married At First Sight's  Jamie and Doug

Peter Jones began working with wedding couples more than 20 years ago, realizing couples preparing for their First Dance have unique requirements -- which are unmet and unrecognized by traditional dance studios and their competitive dancing instructors!  All teachers teach what they know and do, and competitive dancing is VERY different from the social style wedding couples need.

In his lessons, Peter and his instructors concentrate on the idea that wedding dances are about clear communication and taking care of each other rather than exact technical precision, perfectly executed steps, and complex choreography for a dance you'll do ONE TIME in your life!

Sharing a life skill in a stress free environment is Peter's goal, embedded in helping you create a wonderful first dance.


Catch Peter, dance instructor on the fascinating A&E/ fyi documentary,   Married at First Sight” with Jamie Otis!
