Frequently Asked Questions
When you're planning your big day we know you've got a lot of questions about a lot of things so, as far as your Wedding Dance is concerned, we've tried to answer a few of them here.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE OF MY WEDDING SHOULD I BOOK MY LESSONS?
We recommend booking your lessons 4 months in advance with the aim to start your lessons 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. That way you can be well practised and confident when you get on the dance floor without being over rehearsed.
WHERE DO YOU TEACH?
We're established in Northampton, Milton Keynes and Kettering but we're not tied to any studio or venue. If you have a suitable venue we'll be happy to come to you or instead we've built relationships with a number of venues across Northampton, Kettering and Milton Keynes making it easier to find one that's local to you.
HOW MANY LESSONS WILL I NEED?
Most couples find that our Sapphire Package is perfect for them providing 3 x 1.5 hour lessons however it depends on your ability and the performance you're aiming for. We're happy to chat through your song choice and dance ideas before suggesting which package is best for you.
WHAT SONG STYLE CAN I CHOSE?
This is your dance so feel free to be creative. From Swing, to Classical to Rock and Roll we've created dances to tracks from amazing artists including: Ed Sheeran, AC/DC, Jack Johnson, Adele, Elton John, Dean Martin, The GooGoo Dolls, Ellie Goulding, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Bruno Mars, John Legend, Tres Songz... the list is growing every day and we'd love for you to add to it!
WILL I BE ABLE TO DANCE IN MY WEDDING DRESS?
Of course! Brides have all styles, shapes and length of dress and we will choreograph your dance to suit your dress. If you have any doubts feel free to send us a picture of your dress and have a discussion with your instructor who will adapt the choreography appropriately.
HOW DO I PAY?
Once you've decided on a package we need a deposit at the time of booking to secure your dates. Once confirmed you can simply bring cash on the day or send across the fees by bank transfer - just let us know which you'd prefer. Packages can be paid for in advance or in instalments (at the end of each lesson).
CAN I CHANGE/CANCEL MY BOOKING?
Planning a wedding is a busy time and we understand that things change. We're always happy to make changes to your booking where we can, however we are very busy during peak wedding season so this is not always possible in time for your wedding.
Cancellations are possible however we do have a 5 day cancellation policy after which you may still be charged for that lesson and any optional extras you have requested.
WHO WILL BE TEACHING US?
We have a number of teachers throughout Northampton, Milton Keynes and Kettering so your teacher will depend on where you live but don't worry, you're in safe hands. All our teachers are trained and supported by our Head Choreographer - Nicola Hogg - who has over 14 years teaching experience in Northampton and qualifications which include a Dance degree and PGCE to make sure your wedding dance is a fantastic highlight of your day.
WHAT STYLES OF DANCE DO YOU TEACH?
Wow, that's a big question as there are so many styles but it's your song choice and personalities that will really help to choose the style of dance. Whether it's a classic Foxtrot, firey Tango, fun Salsa or cool Contemporary we can put it to music and have teachers that specialise in Latin & Ballroom, Rock 'n' Roll, Jive, Ballet and even Tap dance so feel free to challenge us with an exciting song choice!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO OUR LESSONS?
You should wear loose, comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict your movement but the most important thing to consider is shoes! As well as your flats we'd recommend bringing your dress shoes and high heels along so you can start to practice in the shoes you'll wear on the day!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE LESSON?
The most important thing is to make sure we have the right version of your music. There are often many versions of songs so make sure you bring the right version along, eMail us a copy before hand or send us the YouTube link (we'd also suggest you make sure the band/DJ also has a copy). You could also bring along a bottle of water.
WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED WHEN WE BOOK THE LESSON?
I'm sorry but I need to answer this with a question. Have you already decided on a song for your first dance? If so, great as this is the first piece of information we will ask you. If not, don't fret, you can still book your lessons and let us know your song nearer the time.
