If you're getting married this year, why not surprise your guests by learning to dance for the wedding? Charleston, Jive, Salsa, Swing, Disco... you name it, we can help you create a "First Dance" that you'll remember forever.
At East Sussex Dance we've taught those with "two left feet" as well as ex-professional dancers so rest assured that whatever your previous experience, we can get you dancing on your big day.
It doesn't just have to be the Bride and Groom either; Mother and Father of the Bride, Best Man and Bridesmaids could learn with you, and we can even organise a WEDDING FLASH MOB!
Our professional dance teachers work tirelessly to ensure that your dance is unique, taking into account your musical tastes, previous experience (if any!) and any other special requests from you.
When and Where are the Dance Lessons?
Our dance teachers operate mainly at our centres in Brighton, Lewes and Danehill but we can also provide lessons in other venues across East Sussex.
If space allows, we can even provide dancing lessons in your own home.
Wedding dance lessons can be booked at a time to suit you; our dance teachers are available to teach during the day, in the evening and at weekends so we can always find a mutually convenient time.
How Much Does it Cost?
Private lessons start at £24 for 45 minutes, and discounts are available when you buy a block of lessons.
The number of lessons required really depends on how ambitious your dance is, combined with how much time you're able to put aside for practice at home. Some couples find that 3 or 4 lessons is enough, whereas others like to book a block of 10 lessons.
Did you know... you can now buy ESD Gift Vouchers?! A private lesson with one of our professional coaches makes the perfect engagement present and an original gift for anniversaries and birthdays.
"Alex is a fantastic teacher! She choreographed an amazing routine for our wedding dance and taught us it at a pace we were very comfortable with! It all paid off on the big day!" - James & Rachael
"I had a plan from a very young age of my first wedding dance and that was Dirty Dancing “Time of my Life”, unfortunately my husband didn’t have the same ideas as me and actually could not think of anything worse!!! I went to Alex and Marcus at East Sussex Dance and they solved the problem!! Marcus was my dance partner and performed my dream dance with me on the evening of the wedding wearing a mask of my husband!! It was an amazing experience, I could not dance at all and had regular secret lessons at East Sussex Dance and they taught me in a way that was fun and I really enjoyed myself! The dance was spot on to the original (Apart from the lift in which I needed 4 men to carry me!!). My guests loved it and most of all it made my wedding day! They are amazing and I would recommend them to any one looking for an amazing first dance at their wedding." - Steph (married 2013)
"We’d just like to say that we both really enjoyed the lessons with Marcus and found him friendly, encouraging, enthusiastic and patient. We loved the routine he planned for us – the song choice was not easy to choreograph a routine to as it was a little obscure, but Marcus managed to put something together that included it, plus made other suggestions so that we ended up with two songs and lots of dance styles – something we never would have been able to do without his expert help. A huge thank you for helping to make our wedding special for us and a little different." Susannah and Alex, 2013
