Wedding Dance Lessons to Steal the Show on Your Big Day

Wouldn’t it be fantastic for your first dance to put together a few simple and nice steps, add an introduction and why not a finale and surprise everyone on your big day? 

The wedding dance though it may last only a few minutes it can be a magical moment. but it would feel to last an eternity if you don’t know what you are doing. Have you seen how awkward and hopeless couples who go for the usual “wedding shuffle” come across? They look ridiculous!
You can try to skip the wedding dance, but go on and say this to your bridal party. One of my couples (Ed and Sophie) tried it, and when they told this to their family and friends they nearly lynched them! Ed and Sophie took up lessons and ended up stealing the show on the big day with their first dance (look at their photo above!).

Learning is Easy! 

Learning to dance, especially first dances, is about building confidence and that’s why you don’t need to worry at all if you haven’t danced before. In fact, it’s better this way because the two of you will learn at the same pace. All you need to do is relax, the rest is practice.
Choose the wedding dance package that would suit your needs, the time before the big day and your expectations and you can have a comfortable, relaxed yet impressive first dance. All done in a way you will:
  • look natural
  • be at ease and, above all…
  • enjoy every moment!
Bring along the special song or a selection of songs you want to dance to. If you haven’t decided yet what song to dance to, we will help you choose your first dance song, and then build your from the start to the end.
