Course description

Dance classes – wedding dance lessons in Sydney.

No funny home videos here! Make your perfect day “perfecter” when you glide onto the dance floor with confidence. Bring your bride, groom – or whole wedding party – to have some fun and learn how to dance with style, rhythm, and everyone’s toes intact.

Your partner, your bridal party, parents and friends will learn to dance the Bridal Waltz in this easy four week step-by-step course. We even ask you to bring along your music of choice and play it throughout the lessons, along with song choices from the other couples.

All genders welcome!

Other information

Be sure to dress in comfortable clothing and comfortable shoes with smooth soles that enable you to move around the floor without sticking. We ask the ladies to wear flat shoes during classes and to practice in heels at home.

Before the class – please organise:
  • a CD to bring to class with your song choice so that you may practice right away to your own music.

(Note: We shall use several pieces of music including students' song choices during the four week course.)
