Portland, Oregon 
The mating dance maker provides an enchanting dance-making experience for your wedding. 
Imagine lighting up your reception dance floor with a first dance that is personal & meaningful as well as entertaining. Your guests are cheering whole-heartedly and dabbing tears from the corners of their eyes. You're at the beginning of the best night of your life!
With a focus on connection, expression, and customization ~ 
the mating dance maker is your resource for accessible dance lessons, soul-inspired choreography, and delightfully creative consultation. 


We start with a FaceTime or in-person meeting to get to know each other, and learn all about what you want for your dance. 


You and your sweetheart fill out our fun & romantic intake form.


This delightful questionaire

serves  the dual purpose of establishing your love story as the creative inspiration for your dance, as well as  reminding you what you adore most about

each other. 


Meet with Mari for custom dance lessons and the creation of your dance in a beautiful PDX movement studio, or via Skype if long-distance. 


Your entire dance can be conceived, learned, and rehearsed to perfection in approximately 10 rehearsal hours. You may opt for more or less rehearsal time. 

Wedding Day

You're actually excited about dancing in the spotlight  on your wedding day! 

 Your dance is one of the most meaningful and memorable parts of your wedding day. 


At our first meeting with Mari, she got to know us, asked about our love story, and who we are as a couple. She watched the way we naturally moved together and was able to bring out such sweet and fun dance moves that we actually felt confident doing. She put these moves together into a dance that told the story of our love, which made the whole experience feel so much more meaningful.  She was so natural and easy to connect with. Having her help absolutely transformed the way we felt about our first dance and we were able to feel graceful, happy and confident as we danced at our wedding. I highly encourage everyone getting married to work with her, it was so much fun!! ”
