Wedding Lessons For Your First Dance

The Bridal Dance is truly something that you, as well as your guests will remember well after the day. We create unique first dances for couples that are anything but ordinary.

Trusted by many couples in Melbourne, we specialise in lessons for weddings only, so you can be guaranteed of a professional service with an eye for detail when it comes to your first dance. We understand the detailed planning that goes into any wedding, and it is just as important to us to pull off an amazing dance for you.

We travel to you, all around Melbourne making the experience just so simple, and to fit in with your schedule. Lessons can be at home, your wedding venue, or any place that is convenient.

You will have our full support with lesson notes as well as video feedback after each lesson. We will even lock out a time to be there at your wedding rehearsal should you want a last minute guide. If you like, we can even help with the perfect song selection.

We will take the time to get to know you as a couple, what your individual personalities are, and what style dance you want to achieve. No two dances are the same, as we will create something especially for you. This is the place to go if you want to pull off the perfect wedding dance with your partner!

If its just a lesson to get a few steps under your belt, or alternatively a fully choreographed piece to a song of your choice we can do it all. Experienced or no experience at all, we can certainly help you gain confidence and most importantly have fun dancing.

We will have you looking fabulous for the biggest day of your life- Your Wedding!

At the age of three, I took my first dance class. That day, running around pretending I was a fairy was the extent to which I learnt, but I knew I loved to dance. By age 15, I had moved overseas to train full time in many different styles of dance including ballet, jazz, contemporary, character, flamenco, latin american and ballroom. I have danced professionally in NZ and Australia, and hold an Advanced Diploma of Dance from The Australian Ballet School.

When I married, the wedding dance was one of the most important and memorable parts of our special day. My husband to be (a primary school teacher) had never danced publicly, has two left feet, and the thought of dancing in front of his mates was the nail in the coffin. However, in a couple of practices on a local cricket pitch after work he had it nailed. On the night of the wedding he stole the show.

So many couples I meet tell me they have never danced, or cannot dance, but I don't think that should stop any couple from learning. This is exactly why just a few lessons can make all the difference.

I look forward to helping couples around Melbourne create their own dream first dances to remember forever. Even if you've never danced in your life,  we will have you feeling and looking confident on your big day.

All you have to do is pick your favourite song, and we do the rest!




We provide private first dance lessons in your own home. That's right, we come to you! Usually we can find enough space by shifting some furniture out of the way, using the front or back yard, driveway or garage.

At least two weeks prior to your first lesson, we will request your song choice. This will help give us an idea of the style you are after, as well as prepare your dance. We like to have an initial chat to understand your dancing ability (never danced in your life to confident) so we can appropriately design your first dance.

We highly recommend practicing in your actual (or similar style) wedding shoes, as this can feel very different to dancing in sneakers. Especially brides in heels.

We also like to know a little about what you will be wearing on the day. Big skirts/ veils/ heavy jewellery etc. Don't worry brides, we can keep this a secret if you like.

Following your lesson, you will receive lesson notes as well as a video of what you've learnt. This will really help you to remember all the steps and for those who really want to, practice between lessons.

Payment will be required in full prior to the first lesson. 

If you are having a wedding rehearsal at your venue, we highly recommend taking your first dance music, and having a practice run there. By appointment, we can attend with you, and help with those last minute tips from spacing on the dance floor to choosing the best locations for the photographer/ videographer to capture your dance on film.


Take a sneek peek at one of our wedding dances from rehearsal through to Wedding Day. We have spliced the video so you can really see what goes into practicing a bridal dance.
