We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennelle Wax and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jennelle, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I was excited to start Flawless First Dance because I love helping engaged couples get ready for one of the most important moments of their wedding: The First Dance! I saw that no other dance courses or programs catered specifically to wedding couples. A couple getting married isn’t going to be dancing alone in their living rooms or even at a nightclub. They are going to be dancing in front of all of their closest friends and family! It was important to me that I create something special to make sure these couples getting married look and feel amazing on their big day.
What should our readers know about your business?
Flawless First Dance is a course that helps couples getting married prepare for their first dance. One thing I’m most proud of with Flawless First Dance is how the course keeps the focus on the couple’s wedding day above all else. Other courses don’t address the fact that a huge crowd will be putting all their attention on the newlyweds which is so important in the practice and preparation of one’s first dance. Another challenge was finding a way to give engaged couples a video course that is truly designed for beginners. This lead to a unique innovation included with every lesson in the Flawless First Dance course: Multi-Cam videos. These additional videos provides three simultaneous angles (front, side, and top) allowing multiple views of each lesson and making learning easier and fun. It’s only through years of working with countless couples in Southern California that I’m able to finally bring the same level of interactivity and engagement with a one-on-one lesson to a successful online course. In the end, my hope is that Flawless First Dance not only will help serve newly engaged couples around the world, but will also mark the beginning of even more online courses in the future.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Grab some coffee at Coffee Nature in Costa Mesa. Then, head over to the Back Bay Nature Preserve and walk along the trails and enjoy the scenery. Get some lunch at Haute Cakes in Newport Beach and sit outside along the patio. Head down to the Newport Beach Pier for some relaxation and sunshine. And finally enjoy some dinner and sing karaoke at Dirty Nelly’s in Costa Mesa.
