Why would any couple go for the wedding dance shuffle? You’ve seen it: both bride and groom move their feet and the swing the body aimlessly, and everyone in the room wants the wedding dance over as soon as possible.

There’s only one chance to make a lovely impression with your first dance on the big day; you should grab it with both hands! It’s a magical moment.

Imagine the flow of the wedding gown on the floor as you walk to the sound of your first dance 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 and you should to wow the guests with your wedding dance.

Preparing for the first dance is not that difficult and you can...

  • Learn to dance with ease and confidence
  • Dance to your chosen first dance song no matter how fast or slow
  • Go for a simple routine or a carefully prepared wedding first dancing choreography. It's all about learning the basics
Start your wedding dance lessons anytime you want, and here’s  what you’ll learn to nail your first dance:
  • Prepare to dance for at least two minutes before asking the guests to join you
  • Enjoy the time you walk on the floor as your first song is on, and show the best of your wedding gown
  • Go for a simple yet impressive main wedding dance made of steps and variations that make you look relaxed and at ease (nothing outlandish or complicated)

  • Learn how to slow down your first dance and make it easy for the guests to join in and start dancing

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. What’s more, even a single wedding dance class can make a massive difference.

Couples taking individual wedding first dance lessons in Central London

With our wedding fast approaching there was one thing we over looked… The first dance! We wanted to learn a simple yet beautiful first 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 step, that initially looked complex, then put together a routine that we where 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 first dance, the lessons are so much fun!

Melvyn & Ruth

We wanted to learn a simple first 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 pacakge. 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 first 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 first dance! Our wedding was characterised by our first dance and I’m so glad that we took these lessons. Highly, highly recommended!”

Adam & Kim

Couples who booked first 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 for a huge crowd to gather round for our first dance for us and while danced an embarrassing wedding shuffle so we found Paul after searching around a bit. The first 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 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 first dance. I would recommend him to anyone looking to avoid the awkwardness of the first dance!”

Tom & Jess

We really recommend these first wedding dance lessons. We are not great dancers and I had never danced 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 lessons.
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 dance, type of dress and shoes) so he could adapt better to us in particular.

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