Here are some genuine comments we have had from happy couples and hens!
Our teacher immediately put us at our ease and helped us to put a great first dance routine together. It was simple but very effective and was met with huge cheers from our guests. Thank you!

A huge thanks to Dance Solutions. We had so much fun learning the dance and it went down very well on the day. My Aunt, who's a professional dancer, said she loved it, which is good enough for me! It was a great thing to have lessons in the build up to the wedding, a lovely thing to do as a couple as it really makes you focus on the two of you.

I just wanted to write to you and let you know that the dance went really well at the wedding - everyone was really surprised and Alex especially got a lot of compliments (I think people were shocked!) I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to Anna - she was really brilliant and patient with us and we were really pleased to have something special to do on the day.

Just to let you know that we were very impressed with Gwen and we thought she did a great job. She was professional and prepared in advance so she got the most out of us in our lesson, but was also flexible and happy to create, add and adapt ideas to suit our individual needs. Best of all she has given my anti-dancing fiance the confidence and skills to allow us to do the kind of first dance I always hoped for!

Just a quick e-mail to let you know how delighted we are with our first dance lessons. We still have some time before the wedding but feel as if we have made great progress so far. We look forward to our remaining lessons, if we continue to make progress at the rate we have, we will be giving Tom Chambers a run for his money!

After the wedding...
We wanted to write to you to thank you for all your help in preparing us for our first dance. We (and our guests, judging by their cheers) thought you did an excellent job in teaching us our routine that worked for both our skill levels (no need to guess who's was the lower!), but still managed to get the all important lift to wow the guests. Thank you again, you really helped to make the day a special one that we will never forget.
Mr and the now Mrs Williams
We are so grateful we had dancing lessons - Abigail was friendly, helpful and an excellent teacher. She made us both feel relaxed and taught us simple moves that were easy to reproduce on our big day.

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.

I just wanted to let you know that we have now had three lessons with Katy and we are having so much fun. Katy is lovely and the dance is really coming together now. We videoed our lesson on Tuesday to help remember our steps. Thank you for organising all of this!
After the wedding…
It was a great success on the night and everyone clapped and cheered throughout the dance which was really encouraging. We managed to keep it a secret from everyone so it was a big surprise for a lot of people. We justwant to do it all again!! Thank you so much for introducing us to Katy - she was an absolute star!
All the best

Everything went really well on the day; people were impressed with our dancing and enjoyed it all very much. We had some nerves but mainly excitement. The learning experience was fantastic and we highly recommend Dance Solutions. They listened to exactly what it was we were after and delivered it superbly. Thank you!

A big thanks to Dance Solutions for making our first wedding dance a reality! Anna Marie did a great job in convincing Dan to let go of his inhibitions and bust some moves for the finale! The dance was a well kept secret from every single one of our guests. Therefore there was much cheering, laughing and fun had by all which was our intention and the moves Anna Marie taught us were perfect! Our wedding day was truly fabulous and the dance just made it extra memorable for everyone! Thanks again!

Thank you so much Natalie and Dance Solutions! From the first moment we met Natalie we loved her - she was so creative, pushed our confidence, was patient through difficult steps and completely understood the vision we had for our first dance. All our friends and family were really impressed and loved it just as much as we did! Thank you :-)

We had an amazing time in South Africa and the dance went very well, everyone loved it. I think I may have gone a little wrong but no one noticed so it was fine. The big swing around at the end was very impressive. Thank you so much for all your help and encouragement with our dance. You made it look very easy and so natural. Thank you so much again!
LOVED the lesson but boy have we got some practising to do, we were shattered :-). Cant wait till our next lesson on Saturday!
Just wanted to let you know the dance went down so so well! Everyone loved it and we really enjoyed ourselves. People are talking about it all the time, got everyone convinced it was a mistake then they couldnt believe their eyes!

Thank you for all your time and efforts in getting Dave and I prepared for our first dance. We both thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and I secretly hope that Dave will be interested in keeping the dancing going!

Anna was great - the lessons with her were really good. We learnt a lot and had some fun as well. Please let her know that our dance went really well!
Mr and Mrs C, London
We would like to thank you so much for all your help with the dance lessons. We practiced like mad in the days leading up to the wedding and it paid off in the end. The dance went extremely well and elicited lots of cheering during the routine (particularly during the kicks towards the end!) In fact, a couple of people thought it was lovely to see a routine for once and they thought it was one of the best "first dances" they had seen. From our perspective, having a routine actually helped to take our minds off the embarrassment of dancing together in front of so many people so thank you for all your help.

Song - 'It had to be you' by Harry Connick Jr
It went really well and everyone loved the lifts! Please pass on our thanks to Anna who choreographed the dance for us - we had such fun with the lessons and the photos are a great memory.
Mr and Mrs, London
Back from honeymoon and just wanted to say thank you again for the fantastic first dance that you choreographed and taught us. We both really enjoyed it and our guests haven't stopped talking about it. It went very well. A few small mistakes, the floor was a little slippery and stepping on the train (only once!) meant that we had to be a bit careful not to fall and a couple of steps were late. But overall it was brilliant! Everyone was amazed and certainly wasn't expecting it. Thank you so much.
Mr and Mrs P, Hampshire
A big thank you to you for being so flexible on Monday to come and teach us so spontaneously and so late that evening. We really enjoyed the class and putting our piece together with you - we shall be practising on the weekend .. It's been a pleasure to work with you and with Dance Solutions - how lucky we were to find you on the internet! Best wishes,
Mr and Mrs R, London
We just wanted to let you know that our first lesson with Sarah on Saturday was great. She is very patient, encouraging and friendly, and we are really looking forward to the next lesson.
Mr and Mrs E, Cardiff
I would just like to say I would highly recommend Lisa to everyone - she was brilliant! Very polite, fun and good at her job. Thank you so much for sending her to us, she did a fab job of our wedding dance.
Mr and Mrs E, Basingstoke
It went really well and everyone loved the lifts! I would also be really grateful if you could pass on our thanks to Anna who choreographed the dance for us - we had such fun with the lessons.
Mr and Mrs S, North London
Just a quick note to say thanks again for your ability to see us and teach us so last minute before our wedding. We felt strangely confident going onto the dance floor with the steps you had taught us and several people commented how well they thought we had done. We even utilised the steps with impromptu dancing on honeymoon!
Ben and Zoe, Winchester
Now that we have returned from our honeymoon we wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your patience when teaching us our First Dance. We'd like to say that we were step perfect on the night but, despite the practice (when we didn't put a step wrong) somewhere in the middle Richard's mind went blank! However we got through it to raptuous applaus and cheering from our guests and set the tone for a fun evening. We had a truly amazing day and that first dance will be a lasting memory of the day.
Once again thank you so much for your brilliant choreography, we would definitely recommend you to others.

Chloe was fantastic. Poor girl had her work cut out but she made it really fun and was great with us! Wish we could dance like her!!! Many thanks to Dance Solutions who are friendly, helpful and well organised!

Just a quick e-mail to thank you and our teacher for an amazing hen afternoon on 18th July - we had a great time and were practicing well into the night at the night club!! We did the dance at the wedding on Friday and it went down brilliantly! I would recommend you to anyone and hope we can think up another reason soon to use you again!
Song - 'The boy does nothing' by Alisha Dixon
Where do I start, we all had a wonderful time. Brilliant class. Eloise was very patient with us all. Her explanations were clear and direct and she also took notice of what we wanted and even changed bits of her routine to oblige. She took on board we were there for fun and a bit of a giggle and she made sure we had this and acted accordingly. Please thank her for our great dance class.

We had a wonderful time for the hen do. Thank you so much for your organisation. From my first contact you have been friendly, professional and very helpful so it was no surprise that our actual dance class ran like a dream. Nic was a brilliant teacher, so glad we booked for 2 hours as had time for a warm up and a few dance games to get everyone in the mood. She had obviously put a lot of effort into thinking about the routine beforehand and pitched it perfectly for us. In all we had a fabulous 2 hours and are looking forward to recreating our moves at the wedding reception!!
I would highly recommend you and your company to anyone looking to book a dance class, at a reasonable price too! Just a great way for a group of girls to spend a few hours! Thanks again and will no doubt be in touch soon for other hen parties I'm involved in organising!
I just wanted to say thank you very much for organising the 80s dance class for my friend's hen party last weekend. We had such a great time and the dance we learnt was great fun. You made it a very easy process. Anna was really lovely and made us feel comfortable. She was very patient as I know I was terrible! Can you please pass on my thanks, she helped it be a very memorable hen party. Several from the party have taken your details and will be booking classes for future events.
