This venue was ideal for us, lots of parking, close to nearby hotels for out of town guests. Michell was great in the planning process, as well as providing a free dance lesson as part of our contract. Our ceremony and reception were at the center, which was nice for our guests with limited mobility and those unfamiliar with the area. The inside is gorgeous and the lighting can be color coordinated to your theme.Sent on 11/08/2019
Very good value and highly recommend if you are on a budget or want an elegant indoor venue.

I had my wedding here recently and I am so glad I chose Monterey Dance and Event Center! First of all, the space is gorgeous! It has a disco ball on the ceiling that adds nice ambiance along with mirrors, a grand piano (which was tuned if you know how to play or want to hire a pianist), a TV in the lobby where you can do a photo montage (just pop it on a USB and you're good) and a cute lobby/outside area. A few things that I found rare in the Monterey area and super awesome about this space:Sent on 10/04/2018
-They have an adorable bridal room with private bathroom for the bride (look at the photos on their website, so cute! White furniture, beautiful mirror, etc.)
-The venue came with 75 gold chiavari chairs (this is crazy as usually those totally cost to rent)
-They have a gobo they can project on the wall with a little bride and groom that say congratulations
-The rental comes with a dance lesson which was super fun and amazing- I mean obviously they are a dance studio so of course the lesson was first class. Hehe.
-Here's the most unbelievable one I found: THEY DON'T CHARGE CORKAGE!!!! You can bring in your own alcohol and bring in your own caterer, no worries!!!! Other than the beautiful decor, I think for sure that was the thing that sold me on the venue!!
-Beyond the reasons above, I thought they were certainly the most reasonably priced space I found from my research (things get crazy expensive getting married in the Monterey area, I learned very quickly)
Day of, we were blown away. Everything looked perfect and several of the guests raved about the elegance of the space.
Five stars!! Thank you for making our wedding day perfect. I'm so grateful and glad we chose this space!!

Stunning venue! We are head over heels for the Monterey Dance center! Beautiful location and wonderful vibes. Certainly recommend to any bride seeking the best for her special day!
A great place for fun and family.
We have been students of the Monterey Peninsula Dance Studio for five years and we love the private lessons, group lessons, dance parties, and the friendships we have developed with other students. MPDS does an excellent job of helping brides and grooms and also brides and their fathers with choreography for their special wedding dances. I highly recommend this vendor!
