Long Island Wedding Dance and Rhythmology have joined forces to become Rhythmology Weddings!
Your wedding day should be everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Let Rhythmology Weddings make your dreams come true.
Rhythmology Weddings provides the best possible instruction in private wedding dances. You supply the music and we will teach you how to dance to it. Whether it be a traditional Ballroom dance (Foxtrot, Waltz…) or you want to do something “out of the box” we have an instructor for you!
Rhythmology Weddings has the ability to instruct your wedding party in addition to Father/Bride and Mother/Groom dances. Make that “last dance” one to remember.
Our talented groups of instructors are all professionals in the dance community with over 20 years of experience teaching wedding couples. All instructors have been trained by Founder Alfred Pena and instructor Simone Ousset Kuranishi.
Simone Ousset Kuranishi is a licensed Yoga RYT200 instructor and holds a Licentiate in Theatre Arts. She has a B.A. in Forensic Psychology from CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice and a M.S. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Hofstra University. Simone is currently pursuing a second Master’s degree in Special Education.
She taught for over ten years in NYC public schools as well as private studios on Long Island. Simone instructs group and individual students in a variety of dance styles, including ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, modern, contemporary, and ballroom and Latin dance. She also teaches yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.
Simone performed for the New York Knicks, Walt Disney World, the Orange Bowl Halftime Show, and the Long Island Symphony Orchestra’s Nutcracker Ballet. She competed professionally in American Rhythm. Simone’s students performed for the Brooklyn Nets, Walt Disney World, and at various competitions in the tri-state area.

“At our wits end, less than a week before our wedding, I called Simone to beg for help. She scheduled us for one intense dance lesson. In the space of one hour, Simone played the role of instructor, dance partner (for each of us), and cheerleader. She made the entire experience fun. By the end of that lesson, my fiancé and I each knew our parts and most importantly, we were looking forward to our first dance. One of my most vivid memories of my wedding is the gasps of surprise and pleasure as my new wife and I took the dance floor and actually danced.”
