Wedding Dance

Your first wedding dance is a special moment for you and your loved one, and should give both you and your guests memories to treasure for a lifetime.

But the thought of that first dance in front of all your guests can feel a little scary – which is where we can help. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and confident on the dance floor, whether you want simple steps, classy elegance or a glitzy extravaganza.

Nick’s Dance School has a growing reputation for creating memorable wedding dance choreography, and teaching couples from beginner to advanced how to feel confident when dancing their first dance together as a newly married couple.

Whatever your level of dance experience (even if you’ve never danced before), we can choreograph an eye-catching dance and give you and your partner the confidence to hit the dance floor and WOW your guests!

You can choose to have an Initial Consultation with Terri before choosing whether to book a Wedding Dance Package.
