Wedding Dance Tips
First of all…Don’t panic.
Do you want it to be fairly simple but stylish and intimate? Maybe you want to really stun your guests with the most amazing, jaw-dropping routine that they’ve ever seen? Perhaps you don’t really know what you want yet and need some guidance?
Our instructors have the experience and skills to help you put together a wonderful and unique wedding dance, whatever direction you wish to take.
Depending how ambitious you are feeling, for a 2 – 3 minute choreographed routine for the bride and groom then 5 – 10 lessons will usually take care of it. If you are thinking of something grander or longer, perhaps involving the wedding party or using a few different pieces of music, then you will almost certainly need a bit more time and practice.
What music to use?
You can use practically anything. Our instructors have a good understanding of dancing and are able to make the dance fit the music. The most important thing is that it’s your choice of music, don’t worry about what you think is expected, pick something that you like.
How we can help you.
We are passionate about making dancing simple and honest for everybody to pick up and enjoy. We will teach you how to understand the music, the rhythm and the movement and how they all fit together. Our instructors are able to draw upon the techniques and tools from a wide range of dance styles to help you learn what you need to know for your wedding dance.
The best way to get started is to arrange for a FREE consultation with one of our instructors.

Feedback and photos from some of the great people who have taken lessons for their wedding dance with us here at Phoenix Dance Studio in Richmond.
I just wanted to extend our thank you to Adriano for choreographing and teaching us our wedding dance. Having no dancing experience at all, he looked after us so well, and was so professional. Our dance was simple but beautiful, and we had so much fun doing it on our wedding day. All of our friends and family commented on how wonderful it was!Sally and Daniel
Hi Tom,I was having the marathon 4-day indian wedding and had a very heavy outfit to cater the dance around! Firstly – I just wanted to say thank you 🙂 we had such a memorable moment on the dance floor and I can’t wait to share a snippet from the video (once I get it!).Shar & Maharshi
Hello Tom,We just wanted to let you know that our wedding dance ( we think) went amazingly! Despite the hot weather ( 41 degrees) we had all our friends and family up cheering, especially when we nailed, (yes we nailed it), the lift!Everyone was very impressed with our skills and I’m pretty sure we didn’t miss a step. We managed to keep that we had been doing lesson’s from everyone, which was well worth it, as Shane’s mum was completely surprised and loved it.We wanted to thank you so much for our lessons, you were very patient with us learning the steps (and posture) and we had such a fun time learning how to dance.
Thanks again,Elly & Shane Bennett
