Do I need any dance experience?
Not at all! The aim is to teach you simple and easy moves that will have your bridal dance looking great, ready for the wedding day.
We have never danced before. Are we going to struggle or will we be able to pick it up?
We will guide you through every step and at a pace that’s comfortable for you. With years of experience teaching bridal dances, we will make it an easy and stress free activity you both can enjoy.
When should we start our bridal lessons?
Depending on what wedding package you choose, we recommend you start your lessons 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding date. This gives you time to practice before the wedding day, without feeling stressed or rushed. If your wedding is much closer, don’t worry! We also have a Just The Basics wedding dance package that will have you dancing confidently even after just one lesson.
What happens during the bridal dance lessons?
Firstly, you will learn how to lead and follow your partner and the roles each individual plays. Secondly, you’ll be taught how to dance on the beat to your wedding song. Thirdly, you’ll be shown a couple of popular basic moves and how to join them together.
Your wedding song will be introduced, so that the speed of the movement matches the song of your choice. Now you’re dancing! These moves can be used continuously throughout your first song and can be developed into a mini choreography to suit you and your partner.
I’m not sure I can do this – can I pay for 1 trial lesson?
Of course you can! If you’re just not sure about it or your wedding day is in less that a week, the Just The Basics wedding dance package will have you grinning from ear to ear, with an awesome set of base moves that can be danced with ease to any wedding song.
Do I need to book in advance? How do I make payment?
Yes, prepayment for wedding dance lessons are essential. PayPal services are provided online. After consulting with Amanda to select the wedding dance package that’s right for you, make payment via the PayPal prompts and a confirmation email will be sent out to you confirming all details.
What if I miss a lesson?
We have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy which is non-refundable. If you’re unable to make it or change your mind, we cannot issue you with a refund. If sickness or injury prevents you from attending the lesson, please advise Amanda within 24 hours and present a medical certificate so we can determine if you may receive a refund. We can however, reschedule to an alternative date depending on the availability of the venue.
Think of it this way, if you purchase a ticket to an event and for whatever reason you can’t attend, you wouldn’t get a refund.
What do I wear?
Something that allows you to move, stretch and feel comfortable in. Shoes which are similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on the day, so you can wear them in and get comfortable and balanced. You’ll be spinning and turning, so shoes without rubber soles is preferable; avoid sneakers. For wedding dress preparation, a similar flow and style of dress or skirt is preferable.
Do I need to bring anything?
Bring a water bottle and video camera to film the moves you learn that lesson. Bring both the bride & groom’s shoes that are either the ones you’ll be wearing on the day or similar, so you can practice what it is going to feel like for both of you when you dance your first dance.
Can we have more than one lesson in a week?
Yes, of course! Often in the last two weeks before the wedding day, bridal couples like to have a lesson or two to calm the nerves. This helps them to feel confident in remembering the moves so they can relax and enjoy the day.
What do we do about the music?
We will always have your chosen song ready for the lesson so you don’t have to worry about a thing. If you haven’t decided on your wedding song, we can help provide multiple fabulous options to help you choose the best one.
What style of dance do you teach?
Do you sell gift vouchers?
Yes we do! The perfect gift for engagement parties, birthdays, Valentine’s Day or for family and friends who are getting married.
