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.


Have you ever been sat listening to your favourite music and wished you could enjoy it on the dance floor as well?

Then come and join in with my group dance lessons for fun, social dancing.

Taught in a relaxed and informal atmosphere you will learn the most useful of the Ballroom and Latin dances, plus Rock n’ Roll (6 Beat) Jive, smooth Modern Jive and Sequence dancing.

Usually 3-4 weeks are spent on each style of dancing which I have found to be a successful formula for consolidated learning, alternating between the different dance styles. And I’ll often teach a Sequence dance in between (a routine covering 16 bars of music) - these either go brilliantly right or hilariously wrong!

Where possible personal attention is given during the lessons, as I know how frustrating it can be to struggle with a move that often only needs a simple correction by a trained eye.

I’ll also teach you the important skills of Leading, Following and floor-craft – all essential for enjoyable and successful dancing.

Wear whatever you can move freely in, and shoes are preferable to trainers.

Booking/Registration is required, and a partner preferred (spaces for singles are limited).
