Many Years Later When Looking At Your Photos You’ll Cherish Your Wedding Dance Lessons


Why would any couple go for the "Wedding Shuffle"? You must have seen it: the bride and the groom move their feet and the swing the body aimlessly and both the couple and the guests want that sort of embarrassing routine over as soon as possible.

There’s only one chance to make a great impression with your opening routine on the big day. You should grab it with both hands because it is a magical moment.

Imagine the flow of the wedding gown on the floor as you walk to the sound of your  favourite romantic song. All eyes are on both of you wanting to see your first dance as a married couple. Though only a few minutes long, nothing beats this moment; so you should wow the guests with your wedding dance.

Staged routines and choreographies never work. You can tell the couple have had a few classes. And if something goes wrong, it all goes pear-shaped. Keep it simple, short and impressive and get the damn thing out of the way. That is all there is to it.

Preparing the opening routine is not difficult and you can...

Start your classes as soon as you possibly can. And here’s what you should do to nail your opening routine:

It doesn't matter if you have danced before or not, or if you have a week, a month or a year before your big day. Even a single class can make a massive difference!


Wedding dance classes can help you a great deal with...

          1. Having the right posture, which makes for great photos (look how impressive Sophie’s wedding dress is in the photo above)
          2. When to look into one another eyes and when to check where you are on the floor
          3. How to move gracefully on the floor and build up your routine  smoothly. The first few seconds are crucial as it is when issues, especially with the wedding dress, can happen
          4. Ways to use changes in the music to throw in impressive twirls and variations
          5. What to do if something goes wrong
          6. Tips on how to get your guests excited and keen to get up and join you

Couples taking individual wedding 1st dance lessons in Central London

With our wedding fast approaching there was one thing we overlooked… The 1st dance! We wanted to learn a simple yet beautiful 1st dance, something that would impress and surprise our guests. In other words, we wanted to avoid the wedding shuffle. Paul was fantastic! He put us at ease straight way so every lesson was relaxed and became something we looked forward to.

We worked on individual steps, that initially looked complex, then put together a routine that we were both comfortable and confident. Most importantly, it made us look great and I am really looking forward to doing it on the big day! I would absolutely recommend Paul put together your 1st dance. The lessons are so much fun!

Melvyn & Ruth

We wanted to learn a simple 1st dance routine but were pressed for time, and though we had a song we knew we'd be hopeless without lessons. After an initial lesson, we went for a wedding dance package. Paul was fantastic! He showed us a number of simple moves that made us look great. We loved dancing the routine on our big day and the video was terrific.

I absolutely recommend Paul put together your 1st dance.

Michelle & Michael

Couples who went for private wedding dance lessons in West London

“So, so, so glad we chose Paul to help us with our 1st dance! Our wedding was characterised by our 1st dance and I’m so glad that we took these lessons. Highly, highly recommended!”

Adam & Kim

Couples who booked 1st dance lessons in North London

“Paul was great fun, dedicated and patient and we recommend him to everyone looking for a wedding dance teacher in London!”

Tim & Sam

“We did not want a huge crowd to gather round us while did an embarrassing "wedding shuffle". So we found Paul after searching around a bit. The 1st dance made a huge impact and people talked about it for ages! If you are thinking of doing something special for your big day then you should really call Paul.”

Mr & Mrs Last

Couples who had wedding dance classes in South West London

“We went for dancing lessons to settle our pre-wedding nerves. Paul put us at ease and taught us a simple and enjoyable routine. I would recommend him to anyone looking to avoid the awkwardness of the 1st dance!”

Tom & Jess

We really recommend these classes. We are not great at dancing and I had never done the Waltz before. As the wedding day was getting closer and we didn't want to look ridiculous, we decided to take a couple of classes. Paul is great. From the first emails he was really interested not only in our own expectations, taste, etc. but also the details (where we were going to be dancing, type of dress and shoes) so he could adapt better to us.

He really makes you feel confident that you are able to do it. He has a huge experience preparing couples and that helps. We very much enjoyed the 2 sessions. it was a special time for us in the hectic weeks just before the wedding. In the second session he recorded our performance and it looked surprisingly nice!

Crisitna & Matthias

Couples who went for individual wedding dancing lessons from North West London

“Paul taught us our wedding dance.To begin with he asked us lots of questions about the kind of music we would want, the kind of people we are and so on, all of which helped us figure out the dance we wanted to go for.
Paul is very good at what he does and tries to understand people very well and provides them feedback and help in a great way.

We loved our lessons with Paul and the best thing for us was to actually have that time to ourselves and do the dance after having been a bit stressed during the wedding planning. It just gets you away from it all for a little bit of time and Paul has been able to create the perfect environment for us and make it very enjoyable. We would certainly recommend Paul !”
