Wedding First Dance Lessons – Leeds

Fun Wedding Dance Lessons!

I'm Sarah, Director of Sashay Dance and I teach First Dance Lessons where we are based in Leeds.  I think first dances should be enjoyed and are not something to worry about. 

Most couples that book are just looking for some simple moves to go round the floor and avoid that awkward sway in the middle of the room!  If you are wanting something more fancy I can help with that too as have danced Latin and Ballroom style from the age of 6.

I can make a dance to anything so if you're worrying about your song choice, don't.  If you're not sure of songs you can even email me a shortlist of a few of your favourites and I'll help to decide.  I've picked quite a few first dance songs now. 

I understand first dance lessons can be very daunting but I promise to make these lessons fun and in the run up to a wedding they are a lovely activity to do with your other half.

First Dance FAQS

When should we start our wedding dance lesson package?
I always recommend starting your lessons between 6-8 weeks before your wedding, that way there’s enough time to learn it, there’s time to practice in-between lessons and it’s fresh in your mind for your wedding day.
What should I wear to the wedding dance lessons?
Where clothes you are comfortable in and can move around in. Ladies for shoes I’d recommend flats at the start of your lessons (if no previous dance experience) or shoes with a small heel. If you already have your wedding dance shoes you can bring them to trial them out beforehand.
Where will the wedding dance lessons take place?
We book space at either The Carriageworks Theatre on Millennium Square or The Dance Studio Leeds for our wedding dance lessons, both venues are in Leeds city centre.
How do I pay for my wedding dance package?
We will send an invoice for your wedding dance package and this must be paid within 1 month of the start of your classes
I’m nervous about my wedding dance lessons, what will they be like?
I’ve put this question in as a lot of people get nervous trying anything for the first time. Our classes are fun, very friendly, we are patient but still like to push you to do your best too! We can adapt the routine at any point to suit you and will always keep it within your abilities.
We don’t know what dance to do for our wedding dance, can you help us?
Yes, of course we can. Email us your wedding dance song and we’ll tell you which dance will go best to it for free [email protected]
We don’t know what song or dance to do for our wedding dance, what shall we do?
The first wedding dance lesson I taught I picked their first dance song and wedding dance! We can help with all this, don’t worry.
We have no dance experience and 2 left feet, does it matter?
It’s absolutely fine, we will prove you wrong about the 2 left feet belief and have you dancing a beautiful routine for your wedding! Most of our wedding dance couples have no dance experience. We are very experienced dancers though so welcome all dance abilities from complete beginners to advanced dancers.
