So Exciting

In August Dance Company found a great Tauranga venue at Studio162 (at 162 Durham St, Tauranga) for wedding couple lessons.  Aaron and Kelly decided to take up the opportunity to have a wedding dance created especially for them.

They wanted a non traditional wedding dance that would WOW their guests. There were also a couple of logistical issues as they weren’t sure of the amount of space they had to dance in, or what the floor surface was going to be.

Despite the challenges they did an amazing job and I am so delighted to be able to show you their wedding dance to Sugar by Maroon 5.


If you are also looking for something a little different and exciting for your first dance, limited numbers of private lessons for couples are now available after work on a Friday or on Sunday afternoons .

Its the start of Spring

Its that time of the year when couples start planning their spring and summer weddings.

In the 2015-16 “Wedding Season” I had the honor to teach over 90 wedding couples, a Father of the Bride and two wedding parties. The songs that couples used have been as diverse as Flume, Talking Heads and Motley Crue through to Frank Sinatra, Jason Timberlake and Elton John. The inspiration for a wedding dance always comes from the music and any style of music is perfect if it means something to you both.

I have lesson times available in Tauranga during the weekend and some lunchtimes. In Auckland there are also times free during the day as well as the evenings, so if you work shift you can still have a wedding dance choreographed just for you.

From one of my couples:

Chris and Leah

Just wanted to let you know we pulled our dance off brilliantly! The guests were incredibly impressed that we’d been to dance lessons and couldn’t believe Chris picked it up so easily! We had a lot of fun and were so proud we nailed it! Thanks so much for your choreography and positive teaching. I’ve included a picture of our finale! Chris and Leah

Do consider booking your wedding dance lessons in advance – that means one less thing to worry about closer to the actual day. If you are looking for some help, do call or email.
