WEDDING DANCE LESSONS
How far in advance should we book? We suggest about 2 - 3 months before your wedding.
How often should we have lessons? We recommend every 10 days to 2 weeks, depending on your availability but this is not definitive and we will discuss this with you at the time of booking.
How long do lessons last? We suggest 1 or 1.5 hours. Lessons are tailor made for each couple so let us know what fits in best for you (minimum 1 hour).
Can we learn a whole routine in one go? If you have some basic dance experience then you could choose our 'dance in a day' option. This works out cheaper and ideal if you are short on time. A minimum of 3 hours is required.
Our wedding is next week. Can you help us? Of course! We have taught a whole wedding dance routine in a week before so anything is possible. It is always an option for you to start the dance and then invite your friends and family up during the song. That way you won’t have to worry about learning a whole routine in a short space of time. Our teachers will always bear in mind your time constraints when choreographing your routine.
Can I dance in my wedding dress and shoes? Yes. If there is anything that you feel may by restricted by your outfit then let your teacher know. We won’t give anything away to your partner though! We recommend that you both practice in a pair of similar shoes and a skirt for the bride at some point so if there are any changes you will be well prepared. If you have a long train then speak to your bridesmaid about pinning it up for you for the dance.
What do we need to provide? Space, for example a cleared living room is usually sufficient. Also a copy of your chosen song to use during the lessons and an audio machine (eg cd player, ipod with speakers) to play the song on. You may also find it useful to have a pen and paper handy. Some couples like to video parts of the lessons for reference when they are practicing later on!
What dance styles do you teach? Our teachers have experience in all types of dance and teaching. Click here to see their credentials.They will choreograph in the style that suits your chosen song. We also have specialised ballroom teachers if you would prefer to learn to dance a traditional waltz or hip hop teachers if you are after a fun and funky routine. Just let us know and we will arrange your wedding dance choreography for you.
I would like to buy dance lessons for an engagement/wedding present. Please contact us and we will arrange for a gift voucher.
HEN DANCE PARTIES
How far in advance should we book? You can book up to a year in advance or subject to availability, a week before the event!
When and where do they take place? Most hen dance parties take place on a Saturday afternoon but whatever fits in best with you. If we are booking the venue we will confirm that you are happy with it first but it could be a fitness studio, community centre or function room as an example. If you are booking the venue please ensure they are happy for a dance class to take place.
What happens at a hen dance party? Your teacher will introduce herself and get started with a fun warm up or a few dance games. You will then go on to learn a routine to your chosen song which will feature the bride centre stage. You may also get the chance to choreograph some of it yourselves!
How long does the dance party last? We suggest 1.5 hours or 2 hours for you to get the most out of it but if you have other events planned that day you may prefer 1 hour so you can fit everything in.
What should we wear? Something comfortable such as leggings/tracksuit and t-shirt. Please ensure you have appropriate footwear as well. Feel free to bring props such as boas, hats etc along too.
What themes can we chose from? Whether it's the song you always dance to on a night out with the girls or from your favourite film or show, we can teach you a routine you can perform anywhere! No dance experience required. It's totally your choice but have a look at our hen dance party page for ideas.
Do you have a teacher in our area? If you live in the UK then the answer is probably yes! However we will check availability with the teacher in your area before confirming with you.
How do we book? Please use our online booking forms. If you prefer you can contact us and we will e-mail you a booking form and a copy of our Terms and Conditions. A deposit is required at the time of booking which will guarantee your teacher.
How can we pay? Payment can be made by Paypal, BACS or cheque . Full details are in the Terms and Conditions on our booking forms page. To pay online by Paypal please go to booking and payments.
Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.
"Having had no previous ballroom dancing experience, these lessons were fantastic for getting us ready for our first dance at our wedding. The lessons were tailored to our specific requests, and the teaching was excellent. Our friends were really impressed on the day."
