Do I need any dance experience? You don’t need previous dance experience to take our lessons, as we tailor the lessons to suit you. Whether you’re an absolute beginner or have danced in the past, we can work with your level of skill and natural ability, to ensure yours is the best wedding dance possible. All dance routines are broken down into simple, easy steps, adding any fancy bits or intricate elements where appropriate. You can have a 45 minute Taster Session if you’d like a trial before you book any lessons.

What will our dance be like? We will create a dance routine that’s suitable for you, appropriate to the song you choose, and of course, with the bride’s dress in mind. Informal or formal, simple and straightforward or intricate, it’s up to you.  Your input is essential when choreographing your wedding dance. We work with you to incorporate any ideas you have into a dance that suits you as a couple, suits the song you’ve chosen. It will also be appropriate to your ability and natural style so you won’t have to do anything that you’re uncomfortable with or that’s beyond your skill level, making you look the very best you can during your first dance.

When should we start? The more notice you can give us prior to your wedding the better. The earlier you take your wedding dance lessons, the more time to practice, We recommend you get in touch with us at least 12 weeks before your wedding day.  

How often should we have our wedding dance lessons? We understand that you have a lot to do in the lead up to your big day, so we try to fit the lessons to suit your schedule. Evenings, weekends and day-time lessons are possible.
