FIRST WEDDING DANCE
“We have thoroughly enjoyed learning how to dance from you. You have been an amazing teacher and in such a short space of time you achieved so much with us. In the lead up to the wedding, you created some amazing memories for us on our journey to getting married. You made it special and we cannot thank you enough for your time and dedication.
Rachel’s dress was beautiful and even though there was some slippage because it was getting under Ben’s feet, our dance went really well and we are thrilled to have done it and are proud of ourselves! Ben also improvised very well – you taught him good!
With all the very best wishes and ginormous thanks
Mr and Mrs Fernandez ….. (Ben and Rachel)

Hazel & Rich
“The Love of Dance choreographed the first dance for our wedding and Alison, our teacher, was absolutely brilliant! Alison, completely understood our vision and bought it to life! She is a great teacher, patient, full of energy and has great ideas. Thank you for making our first dance look and feel so special”
Karina & Theo
“Desperate not to just awkwardly shuffle our way through our first dance, we were so pleased to find Alison at The Love of Dance. Alison immediately put us at ease; helping us put together a routine that was simple enough to execute, but still really effective. Alison was extremely patient and our lessons were always such fun. The routine went down really well & we felt fabulous on the day. Thank you again, Alison! xC & Tx”
Caroline & Tim
“WOW – what an amazing day. Can’t thank you enough for choreographing a perfect routine for the most important dance of our lives. You totally nailed our personality in the routine and the rhythm & flair that you somehow discovered within us means im still getting e-mails weeks later about ‘That Dance’. Keep smiling, we are. We’ll always remember that dance. Thanks coach!”
Nick & Lyndell
“Alison’s confidence in us and most importantly her expert tuition turned me from Night Club Dad dancer to confident ballroom dancer, and as a couple we really started to look very good indeed. […] At our last rehearsal we actually had Alison in tears – she was so happy with our performance and the emotion in our waltz. We realised that this was not just a wonderful part of our wedding but (exchanging vows aside) it had become the most important part, the part where we were going to wow our guests. And of course, we absolutely did. We truly did. Thanks to Alison.”
Martin & Wendy
“She had choreographed a really inventive and fun routine which really captured the relaxed atmosphere we were looking to create and allowed us to just enjoy it on the night. […] we would certainly highly recommend Alison for anyone looking for a creative, professional, high quality teacher.”
Andy & Emma
“Alex and I had so much fun learning our first dance. The sessions were well structured and we felt we made progress quickly as well as having a laugh at the same time. Alison was professional and easy to work with, making the sessions feel quite relaxed. […] Alison choreographed a really lovely routine for us that looked flash but was deceptively simple, which was what we needed being latin dance virgins! On the day, the dance went really well and the crowd loved it! Alison has helped us create memories that will last us a lifetime. Thank you very much!”
Amie & Alex
“We had a wonderful day thank you, the dance went down a treat, we got so many cheers, there were (of course) a couple of hiccups, one being Michael stood on my dress, and he went the wrong way but I think we all knew that was going to happen, ha ha. People asked different questions, did we make it up ourselves (fat chance!), had we had lessons, or rather had I had lessons and tried to teach Michael, but the great thing was everyone was so surprised and loved it so much – thank you for all your hard work.”
Caroline & Michael
“I initially felt overwhelmed with having to perform our wedding 1st dance. However, without Alison, I would never have been able to face it with confidence. She helped me with my dancefloor moves and both of us with a routine that suited my lack of dance ability and which meant I could enjoy it!! Thanks Alison xxx”
Debbie & Bayo
“Alison took us on to choreograph and teach us our first dance for our wedding. We arrived with four left feet and a complete lack of dancing ability. A few weeks later, we were confident, had a great dance perfected and were ready for our big day. Alison was an excellent teacher – she was supportive all the way , listened and helped us overcome our fears. We had an absolute ball and enjoyed every minute of it. She’s a great person and a pleasure to get to know – we would have no hesitations recommending her.”
Jo & Dan
“Thanks Alison for such a fun and inspiring morning. The hen and bridesmaids really enjoyed learning the flashmob routine and had such a laugh learning it. You are a fabulous teacher with a lot of patience for us novices! Thank you!”
Jude, Single Ladies Hen Party Organiser
“Thank you so much Alison for an amazing dance routine! We were so excited when We saw the video – Can’t believe you learned every action! It was great fun and can’t wait to use the moves at the wedding until the next hen do…xx”
Antonia, Single Ladies Hen Party Organiser
“Thank you for a wonderful time on my hen do. Think I can safely say everyone had a ball, even though we were slightly trepidatious to begin with youmanaged to get us engaged in remembering our steps and really enjoying ourselves. […] Much fun, laughter, and feathers were had by all!! Thoroughly recommend you as a great dance teacher.”

CHOREOGRAPHY FOR VIDEO/STAGE/ PERFORMANCE
“Working with a choreographer like Alison on this (The Blockheads music video) was a delight. Not only does she understand the concepts but also makes it a collaborative and enjoyable experience. She is such a great dancer with such great ideas – its not difficult to see how she draws out the best! Its been a pleasure. Hope we can do its again soon.””

EVENT CHOREOGRAPHY & ENTERTAINMENT
“The Trio were magnificent. On a social level they were very courteous, punctual on arrival and were exceptionally accommodating in completing a set on request at very short notice, to allow the tribute speeches from our guests which were often unplanned.
The music was brilliant and well performed, just right for the occasion, and I would say their presence on the day was integral to the success of the event. Our guests have been remarking what an enjoyable, well organised and pleasant day they had which was what we set out to achieve.
Thank you very much for a professional, good value for money service, very well received.”
Chris, Music for a memorial reception.
“Many thanks for your wonderful contribution to the Ball last Friday. What a wonderful night – and all the better for your invaluable input.”
Learning Manager, Design Museum – Waltz Lessons at DM’s Ball
“We needed a choreographer for a group dance for our friend’s 40th birthday party, and found Alison online. She worked with us on the brief, and was very flexible during the lessons incorporating our ideas. The routine was brilliant, prefect for us with 2 left feet, but also challenging enough that none of our friends could believe it was us,It was so much fun, and Alison is so brilliant, I just recommended her to another friend for a dance medley she has to perform at a big event, and she’s roped me in too, so for a second time this year I will be nervously sweating under the spotlights!!If it wasn’t for Alison we wouldn’t have had any of the confidence or moves. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough!”
“As a small group of non dancers, Alison Brewton made us feel totally at ease. She choreographed a short easy to learn, but dramatic on the dance floor routine, for a family party. She was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic to make sure our night was one to remember. At the end of our lessons, I know that there were a good few of us that are looking forward to our next routine! Alison had totally given us the dancing feet we all needed!”
“The dust is still settling over the last two weekends, and at last gives me a chance to thank you properly for the great job you did at my party. I’ve had loads of people giving compliments about your session.”
Mike Edwards, Jive Dance Party.
“I have been thinking long and hard about what sort of testimonial I could give you. There is a well known phrase “You can’t polish a turd!” Well not only did you polish it, but you made it sparkle on the night. You managed to get my 2 left feet looking like Michael Flattley. Thanks so much for everything.”
