Welcome to Dance Company’s First Dance/Wedding Dance lessons page.

Elly provides original choreography so that no two wedding dances are the same; just as no two couples are the same. She is skilled at dancing both lead and follow so both of you can be taken through the various aspects of your choreography so you really do “get it”.

For a first dance to wow people you will need to put aside a bit of time to both learn some choreography and practice between lessons AND then have some time to finesse the work.

She has taught a lot of wedding couples, and offers:

    1. The music shortened to a manageable length – most songs are too long for the purpose
    2. Original choreography with some romance – no wedding dance is the same as no two couples are the same
    3. To take both of you through the various aspects of your choreography so you really do “get it”
    4. To teach to any style of music and will cope with any style of wedding dress – for either of you
    5. Lots of fun and laughter

Lessons are offered in Tauranga.

Thank you so much for your superb wedding dance lessons. You are an excellent teacher and the fact that you managed to teach us an impressive dance in such a short space of time is a real testament to your ability. On our wedding day, we were nervous but put all that you had taught us into practice and the look on our guests’ faces was priceless! Thank you so much once again

Thank you for teaching us to dance. We had a wonderful time at our wedding. It was nice and sunny day!
We remembered all the moves and enjoyed it thoroughly. Good audience helps too. Attached are some of the photos of us in action! We have a video to remember.

We are married yesterday and the wedding was a great fun. Thanks for your dance choreography. Everyone seems to pretty enjoy it. We have been receiving good feedback yesterday and today saying how amazed we dance. This is going to be a really good memory between the two of us. Thanks a lot for your help.
