Wedding First Dance Choreography

Award Winning Teachers

We have been choreographing wedding first dance routines for over 10 years and have helped hundreds of happy couples to feel comfortable for their wedding first dance.

Fun & Friendly Lessons

Getting married is stressful enough without worrying about what you're going to do for your first dance.  Let us help take that stress away with our enjoyable lessons.

Choreography Designed For You

Whether you're just looking for that little bit of confidence with basic steps, or after a fully choreographed routine full of lifts and dips, we've got the moves for you.

With the popularity of Strictly Come Dancing, and the variety of videos on Youtube, many couples now want something more than your average "wedding shuffle".

However people often misunderstand when we talk about wedding dance choreography.  It's not about having a fully-blown performance routine (unless that's what you're after!) But more us helping you by giving you a structured routine that fits your chosen song.

We have choreographed personalised dances to a wide variety of songs.  Most routines are based around simple elegant moves but we can also choreograph a classic waltz, a slow foxtrot, sexy salsa, (or even disco!),

Our passion lies with choreographing that first special dance, to your special song. We create the dance in conjunction with you to ensure that it reflects the two of you and your song.

As the choreography progresses we video the two of you dancing so that you have something to refer to between lessons.

For most people we recommend that couples have at least 6 lessons, and ideally attend at least one of our beginner classes, depending on your abilities and requirements.

We pride ourselves on our ability to choreograph first dances to a wide variety of music styles.

There are a variety of options depending on your budget and time constraints. You can see our packages below. Please note that sessions can be doubled up i.e. you can take a 90 minute appointment which would count as 2 sessions from your 45 minute package.

You're Too Far Away From Me?

That's not a problem!  We're also able to offer wedding first dance lessons via Zoom.

When booking in a session you only need to select the 'Zoom' option rather than a standard lesson.

You can also switch between in-person and virtual lessons within the same package.

In fact we have choreographed wedding dance routines for couples in Scotland, Italy and the US.

For most couples we find the 45 minute lesson option is the one we would recommend.

First Dance Testimonials

Martin and I would like to say a massive thank you to Antony and Emma for choreographing our first dance. It was a brilliant way to start our wedding celebrations, because not only did it give us confidence to dance in front of all our guests, it was great fun too. The surprised reaction we received, and all the cheering will be a lovely, lasting memory for us to look back on.

Not only was it great fun to do on our wedding day, the whole experience of learning the routine was fun too, and a great way to unwind from the stress of planning a wedding.

I would recommend Learn To Dance to any of our friends who are thinking of getting married.

Martin & Nicola

My husband and I apprehensively booked some lessons for our first dance. We both have two left feet and were rather nervous about the whole thing! As soon as we were greeted by Emma and Antony they made us feel at ease and we couldn’t wipe the smile off our face! After the six lessons we had a great routine, a whole lot of laughs and some precious down time in between the chaos of planning a wedding! I would highly recommend Learn To Dance as a highly professional, cost effective, friendly and fun experience. We definitely plan to return for regular lessons!

Hannah & Saul

We just wanted to let you know that our first dance went down brilliantly with the guests. Everybody was clapping along and cheering and we loved every second. We managed the whole thing with no (major!) mess ups and so many people have said it's the best first dance they've seen. 

Thank you so much for all your help, you really did turn something we were dreading into something that ended up being one of the best parts of the day.

Thanks a million.

V and P

Antony’s classes allowed us to go through the first dance ordeal with ease.

We were quite nervous as we had never tried any dancing and with all eyes on you during your Big Day you just want to look great on the dance floor.

The routine put together helped us to show some sophisticated moves other than simple shuffling.

Antony had plenty of patience and is very flexible in his time approach. In 6 classes only we had a great routine which fitted with the words of our song and we even had some pounds left in our pocket 🙂

We would highly recommend Antony to future brides and grooms.

Agata & Liam

Having planned our wedding with military precision the only thing left worrying me was "our first dance".

I scoured the internet and came across Learn To Dance.

From the moment i spoke to Antony on the phone i knew we had made the right decision in booking the dance classes.

To say that we were bad on our first lesson is an understatement but with the help of Antony and Emma we managed to pull off a brilliant first dance.

They were so patient, professional and understanding. They listen to what we wanted and really pulled it out the bag.

We couldn't have done it without them. It was the brilliant ending to the most amazing day of our lives and we can't thank you both enough.

Thanks again!

Laura & Sam


We had a wonderful wedding, and just for a few days, the sun shone.

But one of the most important things was that when it came to the first dance, we walked out confidently, made a small mistake, but loved our dance. Quite a few people were surprised we could do it, and we were both very proud of each other. Our dance added to what was a superb day, and your help was so appeciated by Peyalee & I.

Thank you for helping us enjoy what was such an special day for a lot of people.

(When we messed up slightly during the dance, we covered it so well and smiled, as you taught us!)

Thank You So Much

Peyalee & Chris 


Sorry it's taken so long to write but I'd really like to thank Antony for teaching me and my husband our first dance. It was such a success. Nobody could believe it especially of Barry, as he hates dance floors! Thank you again for your help.

Sharon & Barry

My fiance and I are definitely non-dancers, but needed a first dance for our wedding.  In addition, we are of a certain age and the situation is made worse by disability.  However, after a few lessons and a great deal of patience from Antony we were able to perform a routine which earned us applause and many compliments.  Thank you for enabling us to avoid complete humiliation!

Allan & Sandra G.

I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help with our first dance, we got married on 2nd September and the dance went down a storm!! I'm so glad we decided to get our first dance choreographed, it made the day!

Many Thanks

Claire and Andrew xx

Hi Antony,

Just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for teaching us how to dance. We were so worried about our first dance but you have this magical way of making people believe that they can do it. It was amazing to get a routine in 4 weeks especially as the pair of us have two left feet.
The dance went down really well and everyone loved it. We actually ended up doing it twice as a few people missed it the first time.

Thanks again

Best wishes

Jola and Andy

Just to say "a VERY BIG THANK YOU". Your choreography worked perfectly! We had a cracking time.  Our wedding went so smoothly including the 1st dance. I think we have danced the whole 3 minutes of "Sunrise"...can't remember exactly, not because we drank a lot but because we were so happy. We may have come across quite confident in the end. I also managed not to trip up Gavin with my huge dress.

In general we danced a lot that evening. Were still aching 2 days later 😉 A friend of us shot a short video, awaiting a copy of it ...

Thank you so much for your patience with us beginners ;-))
We loved the whole experience being your students.

Gavin & Sezin

Emma was brilliant, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I wish we had pulled our finger out sooner and booked more lessons. What she did for us in a short space of time was amazing.

We enjoyed it so much we are serious about having lessons after the wedding just for the fun of it.

Thank you again so much - we will let you know how the final dance goes.

Jacci R.

My wife and I we performed the best ever opening dance in Spain for our Wedding day, and this only happened because Antony show us how to do it over 6 months of regular training.

He knows what to do if you ask him what you want.
