I wanted to share an example of how The Love Of Dance has helped a wedding couple to meet their first dance dreams. There’s no one size fits all, which is why I tailor the process of teaching the basics of the ballroom styles to every couple, and develop the first dance with them along the way. I’ve been teaching first dance for almost 15 years (and dance for 20 years!), so I now rarely plan anything until I’ve had the first lesson with my couples – and it’s usually a beautiful process!
Real life first wedding dance couple E&J
This superb photo below was sent to me by the absolute superstars E&J along with their 5* feedback. They had a one day intensive dance EXPERIENCE with me. I can’t even call this process a lesson because the 5 hours were completely collaborative. They wanted some moves for their first dance to the dramatic Killer Queen by Queen. They freestyled together and showed me the powerful vibe they wanted to bring to their dance, I took that vibe, rolled with it and – for those of you who have performing arts knowledge of any kind: we ‘workshopped’ their whole routine. I’d prepped some moves for them, then pretty much just helped them order their own moves into a routine they could remember, teaching them some basics of foxtrot too, so they will still have the skill forevermore knowing how to properly lead and follow. Their final rehearsal gave me goosebumps.
Here’s the glorious feedback from E&J
“Absolutely incredible experience. Alison was fun, casual and incredibly talented. She understood our vision, pitched her teaching at the right level for us and we had a fabulous time. Everyone at the wedding said it was the best first dance they’d ever seen!!”E&J
