Let Monterey Dance & Event Center help you have the knowledge and skill to light up the dance floor throughout the reception and any dance floor for the rest of your lives.

As two avid Scottish country dancers, we needed to hold our wedding in a place with a good wood floor for the dance reception with space for about 80 dancers to dance at the same time and 125 guests overall. We found that and much more at Monterey Dance, a ballroom dance studio and elegant gem of a hall. Elegant and very tastefully appointed, it has the stateliness of a fancy hotel but is a much more reasonable size for most people and is MUCH more affordable. In addition to the main hall, it has an inviting lobby, a lounge/warming kitchen for the caterer to prepare and store food, and a lovely bridal room. The wedding package includes a DJ or a sound system for a band, and the room has great acoustics. We had both the ceremony and the reception there. The owner, Michell, helped us work out a plan to reset the room from ceremony to reception, working quickly with her crew to move chairs, tables, an arch, etc. She was also very patient with our many questions, changes, and visits to work out logistics. It all worked out beautifully, and both dancing and non-dancing guests loved it!

Monterey Dance & Event Center made our wedding first dance a special and enjoyable experience. I had no dance experience before taking their lessons and in 2 months of lessons I felt comfortable dancing to all the songs played at our wedding. I would recommend Monterey Dance to anyone and look forward to more classes in the future.
