Private Lessons for First Dance or Special Occasion

Here we choreography a routine to your choice of music and endeavour to ensure that couples are not only confident with their wedding dance but will derive joy from dancing it on the big day. The son you choose should be selected on the basis of your and your partners likes and dislikes.

Frequently asked question is “how many lessons will I need”.

This depends largely on the ability of the individuals and especially on the need to have home practice before each lesson. Practice ensures that even though the steps may not be technically perfect the couple look comfortable delivering them.
