We have been running wedding dance workshops for over 3 years now, and have taught hundreds of happy couples their first dance. The wedding dance workshop is a two hour group class, a ‘crash course’. It is perfect for beginners or if you think you have ‘two left feet’, and it is useful for those with some experience. We teach some easy, yet cool moves that will make you look and feel good. The moves we teach in this workshop can be used to almost any song. Oh, and it is fun!

We offer two hour wedding dance workshops which are basically crash courses in designing your first dance. In only two hours, you will learn some basic but elegant and effective steps that will impress your guests. The workshops includes learning basic dance hold and some basic steps, as well as twirls and even a dip, that is designed for those who have never danced before. In just two hours, you will be prepared for your special first dance.
Only 2 more workshops for 2016:
The wedding dance workshops will start again monthly in February 2017. Dates will be posted here shortly.
The workshops are held at Dovercourt House near Bloor / Ossington (pictured above).
1. Decide what you want to do. Do you want something simple and elegant? Do you want something fun and entertaining? Do you have a song in mind? If you are doing a fully choreographed song, start early but not too early because you don’t want to forget your moves before the big day! For a simple dance, you can learn closer to your wedding date.
2. Make time to practice regularly. Avoid large gaps between practices to avoid forgetting what you learn in your lessons.
3. Keep your dress in mind and practice in it if possible. Have your dress bustled up and if your dress is difficult to move around in, keep this in mind when you are designing your first dance.
4. Keep your shoes in mind – practice at least once in the shoes you will be wearing on the day.
5. Keep your dance floor in mind – is it big, is it small? You should choreograph your song according to the space you have. Also, practice on the floor beforehand if possible!
6. Do a quick rehearsal on the day if possible before you dance in front of your guests.
7. Smile and have fun! Remember, noone knows your choreography so if something goes wrong, just go with the flow and don’t show that you made a mistake. Stay connected to each other and just stay in the moment.
