The First Dance (the-first-dance)

The First Dance. Fun, affordable private dance tuition and choreography tailored to your ability and requirements by a patient, experienced wedding dance specialist.


You’ll need to confirm your song choice a week or so before you start your lessons so that I can be fully prepared for you, and the tempo of the music you choose will determine the style of dance I will teach you.

Do have a good listen to the lyrics in the song as some aren’t as romantic as they might seem! 

If you're having difficulty choosing a song for your first dance I am happy to give a 'dance opinion' on anything you’re considering or here are some popular recent choices that might inspire you.
