We understand that choreographing and teaching dances for a wedding is a lot different than training students in a classroom or studio. Event choreography requires the instructor to understand a variety of learning styles and paces in a short amount of time and create something that will look good on everyone, regardless of their experience level. As a trainer and choreographer, that’s exactly what we aim to do. Whether it’s a group dance, first dance, slow jam or upbeat number, we tailor our choreography to our clients’ preferences and learning styles to help them create magical moments for themselves as well as their audience.
In this package, choreography and instruction is provided through pre-recorded instructional videos that can be sent to all participating performers. The choreography is crafted and instructed in a way that is easily understandable for beginner level performers or can be made more intricate should you be looking for advanced level choreography. This package is recommended for larger group dances where participants are located in different places and will be coming together for practice only closer to the event, or for those who can pick up choreography easily on their own. This allows everyone to learn at their own pace and time and allows you to add as many performers as you'd like.
Starting price for a Tutorial package with custom choreography is $400.

This package is highly recommended for first dances/couples' dances where instruction is provided via Zoom lessons or in-person. It typically takes 4 lessons to learn a 2-3 minute routine, however, there is no additional charge should a session need to be added. We want to ensure everyone can learn at a comfortable pace. Unlike the Tutorial Package, the Lesson Package allows for more customization and modification of choreography so that it is properly tailored to the performers' comfort and experience level. It is also recommended for those who may need more guidance in learning the choreography.
Starting price for the Lesson Package is $800 for Zoom
and $900 for in-person.

"Without a doubt, one of the best decisions I made regarding our wedding. I reached out to Devika to choreograph a fusion dance for a diverse dance mix that required background in latin, hip hop, and bollywood. She is so multi-talented and KILLED the choreo. I had 12 bridesmaids and yet she handled it like a pro. She was so timely in getting the choreo to me while also having evidently thought out and brilliant choreo. She also created formations that were color-coded and so easy for my girls to follow. They all were so impressed and were constantly asking me how I found Devika. She knows exactly how to guide both non-dancers and experienced dancers to create the best and most energetic production. Lastly, she happened to be driving through the city our wedding was held in around the same time as the sangeet & she stopped by to help us practice. Real dedication and passion!!!! Highly recommend DFD for all choreography needs & if you just need an amazing, energetic person to make everyone laugh and enjoy the process among the chaos of wedding planning."
"We had a three day Indian-Western fusion wedding and by all accounts one of the major highlight was the choreographed dances by Devika! Our couples dance was my absolute favorite thing about the wedding. It was so fun to prepare during our sessions with her. She broke down the dances into easy learnable bites and even provided us with videos so that we could practice! She was so friendly and encouraging. And it came out great, our family and friends were standing and whooping by the end of it! She also choreographed dances for our 8 bridesmaids and our 8 groomsmen that live in various cities around the country! They all easily learned the dances at home through her great instructional videos. Last, my family including older aunts/uncles who are typically shy, went wild during the Bride's Family choreographed dance. The practicing and anticipation of performance brought them such fun and they really felt like a special part of the wedding. Devika is truly talented and wonderful and I can't wait until she choreographs something for our next family event. TEN STARS!"

"Devika Dhawan choreographed two dances for our wedding. She did an outstanding job. We gave her some details about our wedding and she gave us a list of songs to pick from, and then she choreographed the dances based on those songs. First, she was very flexible, and came directly to our place to teach us the moves we needed to know. She quickly re-scheduled with us when we could not meet when other wedding events sprung up. Second, she was really patient with us when it took us awhile to learn the dances. Third, practicing the dances with her was really fun! She has a great personality and sense of humor. In regard to the dances themselves, our guests absolutely loved the performance that we put on, and it really helped cap a special day for us. I mean it when I say the dance was one of my favorite parts of the wedding. We had so much fun with it that we decided to work with Devika again for my wife's friend's wedding, and we're currently practicing with her again now! We're having a great time with it. In summary, I would highly recommend Devika for choreographed dances. She thoughtfully helps you pick dances based on the event, and designs the dance for you and your intended audience, She is a really fun person to help you put together a dance, and a slam dunk addition to any wedding!"

Devika is amazing! We worked with her for our wedding and she helped choreograph our first dance and our groomsmen dance! Her choreography is amazing and tailored to your level of dancing! She was so professional, patient and kind, and met with us multiple times before our wedding to help us practice! Our dances were such a hit with our guests and we truly owe it all to her! Highly recommend her!
