Tell us about your business, what services do you provide for weddings, are these available for other events or occassions?
First Dance Lessons - Whether you are looking for a little guidance to make the moment special for you and your partner, or a spectacle with the full bridal party to entertain your guests we can choreograph a dance you can relax and enjoy. Each dance will be choreographed and tailored to your ability, ideas and preference - every wedding is different and every dance should be too!
Could be for an anniversary, special birthday, or any occasion you want to dance!
What's your favourite part of the job? Is there a part that you really look forward to or enjoy?
It is very rewarding to see the progress from the initial stages of the first lesson to the complete dance. Whether no or little dance experience, to see the confidence grow and the steps flow together makes seeing the final ‘performance’ so special. All the practice is so worthwhile when you can dance into your future together with confidence!
