Dance Lesson For Weddings FAQs

Where do lessons take place?

For your convenience, our private wedding dance lessons take place in the comfort of your own home. They are ‘in-person’ not virtual – this is a Zoom free zone! It means you can learn in a relaxed atmosphere without distraction. It also saves you travel time in the hectic lead up to your big day.

How long are lessons?

All wedding dance lessons are 90 minutes, so 1.5 hours.

What if we don’t have a first dance song?

That’s OK! We are very happy to help you choose. It is very useful to make a short list of songs you like. Here are some ideas for First Dance Songs For Weddings and Unusual First Wedding Dance Songs.

How can I pay?

When you are happy with your schedule, we will send you an invoice. You’ll have three days to pay your invoice and once you do, your lessons are confirmed. We are proud to operate in this way as we feel it’s important that the lesson schedule suits you, before you commit financially. There are no hidden costs, we don’t charge extra for travel or VAT and we don’t require deposits.

How much space do we need?

If you both stretch your arms out to the side and turn on the spot without bumping into anything, you are marking out the very minimum that we could work with. So as long as your space is bigger than this, you have enough space! It’s roughly 2 x 3m2. Of course, bigger is better, so we encourage you to push back the furniture to maximise your homemade dance floor!

Are you surprised that you don’t need more room? Here’s an explanation… I’m sure you’ve seen the dancers on Strictly Come Dancing whoosh across the floor? Their costumes are light and the dresses are never longer than ankle length. As wedding dresses are floor length and often heavy, first wedding dances travel much less. This is why you don’t need as much space as you might expect to learn your first wedding dance.

What if we don’t have enough room?

That’s fine, as we can teach you somewhere else. Depending on what is available in your local area, you might like to consider a function room, village hall, leisure centre or work space. If you belong to a gym with a studio, that’s a great place to start.

When hiring space, you will probably be asked if the teacher has Public Liability Insurance and the answer is yes. If you can’t think of anywhere to hire, let us know and we can get some recommendations from your dance teacher.

When will the lessons be?

On the Booking Form, we ask roughly when would be convenient for you. Then, according to your teachers availability, we will make suggestions for you to choose from. The schedule will suit you lifestyle and classes don’t have to be on the same day each week, it’s fine to mix it up to suit your commitments. Weekdays, weekends, daytimes and evenings are all options.

What if we need to reschedule?

That’s fine! All we need it 48 hours’ notice and we can either re-arrange (if possible) or refund. To read more on this, here are the Terms & Conditions.

Do you have wedding dance lessons near me?

Yes! Our team of wedding dance teachers covers the entire UK, so whether you live in a village, town or city, you can take our classes. As well as everywhere else, we offer wedding dance lessons in London, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Belfast, Nottingham, Liverpool, Sheffield, Leeds, Coventry, Leicester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Southampton, Derby, Portsmouth, Brighton, Northampton, Wolverhampton, Aberdeen, Milton Keynes, Oxford and Cambridge plus wedding dance lessons in all the places in between and all around!

How far ahead should we take lessons?

Around six weeks before your wedding day is ideal, although some couples opt to start earlier. It’s a personal choice that will depend on everything else you have going on. We feel that six weeks is long enough to learn and practice, but not so early that you’ll forget the steps! It’s beneficial for the dance to be fresh in your mind, without having learnt so far in advance that you are bored of it by the time your wedding day arrives.

If you have less than 6 weeks to go, don’t worry, we’ll see what we can do. We once organised lessons for a couple 3 days before their wedding!

How much time should there be between lessons?

Ideally 5-10 days, as hopefully that allows time to practise. If there’s a large gap between lessons, the momentum of learning can be a bit slow. However, if this is your only option don’t worry, as there are ways around it. For example, you could film yourself at the end of your previous lesson as a reminder should you forget anything.

We can’t dance, are totally hopeless and have four left feet between us. Can you help?

Yes! We definitely can. Our wedding dance lessons are perfect for you, as we start from scratch with beginners. You will learn and develop one step at a time. Even if you have zero confidence and no rhythm, as long as you have some enthusiasm and the desire to progress, we’ll provide dancing lessons for wedding dance floor success!

The employee of Wedding Day Dance UK will arrange the restriction of the processing. f) Right to data portability Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
