Wedding Preparation

We will prepare you for your first dance of your wedding and you both will look fantastic.  We promise that the process will be fun. We hand pick and customize the perfect package of classes for both of you.

Makela has prepared hundreds of very happy couples on their first dance.  These are the packages:

1) 5 private lessons paid in advance: $500 for a 30 second choreography of the music you choose.

2) 10 private lessons $950 paid in advance for 1:15 m choreography of the music you choose. MOST POPULAR ONE.

3) 20 private lessons $$1850 paid in advance it is ok for 2 m choreography. We will have time to use some hours to polish the choreography so it looks perfect! It includes one month of unlimited group classes at Makela Tango for the couple. This helps you to practice your moves and to be more familiar with the dance and who knows, it might end up being a hobby that you could do on your date night forever!

Makela prepares you from the minute you walk to the dance floor until you leave the dance floor. It is a very fun experience. Lessons are held in Culver City in our spacious sprung professional floor. 

Makela Brizuela, she is the gold standard in Los Angeles. Hopefully you want the best. I have previously worked with several other instructors with varying levels of success and frustration, but Makela’s classical dance education and Argentinian background, and passion for her dance make her the best. After a couple years of lessons with her, I had to have her as my wedding tango choreographer. We loved collaborating with her during private lessons so much that we even hired her to teach tango basics at our wedding for our guests and it was a huge hit!!
She is always professional, personable and adorable, if you can take private lessons with her you will really excel! Her group classes are excellent too and you will be so glad you found her.
