Dance Studio Leeds is your one-stop shop for wedding dance choreography, tuition and rehearsal space. We’ll even film you practicing so that you can track your progress!

Whether you are a bride and groom-to-be who just need a few tips on how to move more smoothly together during the first dance at your wedding or a bridal party who want to wow your guests with an all-singing, all-dancing group routine or flashmob, our professional, relaxed and fun tuition will make sure everything goes to plan on the big day. Our spacious, welcoming dance studio is the perfect backdrop to get you ‘into the zone’ for performing on the big day.

Preparing for the first dance at your wedding - where to start:
  • Choose your wedding first dance song. Make it something that is meaningful to both of you and that you both enjoy listening to. If you’re unsure, we can help pick the perfect tune.

  • Decide on the dance style. Whether you want to break dance across the floor or glide poetically, the style of your wedding dance needs to suit the music and, more importantly, your personalities. Our tutors get to know you and understand exactly what you’re trying to achieve to choreograph and tailor something that you’ll feel totally comfortable with.

  • Plan ahead. The first dance at your wedding is a big moment, even if you want it to be low-key. All eyes will be on you so make sure you leave plenty of time to practice and feel comfortable with what you’re doing. For a choreographed routine to a three minute song, we recommend three to five lessons. However, some practice is better than none so even if you’re only able to fit in one last minute lesson, you’ll pick up a few invaluable pointers and tips!

  • Document the process. The best way to learn and improve your dancing technique is to watch it back so that you can adjust your posture and steps. We film our wedding dance lessons so that couples can review their progress. It is also a lovely memento that many like to have edited into their wedding video as a reminder of how far they came with just a few short lessons!

  • Practice in your wedding shoes. It can feel very different dancing in heels and smooth soled shoes if you have previously been practicing in trainers or similar. To put you at ease and help bed in your shoes take them along to the lessons.

Our wedding dance was the highlight of the day and the best money we spent. All our guests LOVED it, and we were amazed at our steps. I’m so chuffed with it. Thank you so much for teaching us the routine and being so helpful in the lessons.

We left little time to prepare for our wedding dance; Katie responded to us and choreographed the dance quickly, exactly to our taste! She was very accommodating and so much fun to work with. The dance studio itself felt like something out of a film, very cool and a good location too.

- Amber and Kieran

Katie at the Dance Studio was our saviour when it came to our first wedding dance. Katie put together a fantastic routine for our song choice which not only matched the music perfectly, but really reflected our relaxed and happy personalities. After just three one-hour lessons, we were confident enough to wow our guests. And wow them we did – the dance went down a treat and it was such a happy, loving start to our evening celebrations!

- Carlos & Lisa

We smashed the dance & received the most rapturous of applause from every single guest.  It was a perfect first dance for a perfect wedding & we both thank you greatly for your patience & help. The whole day would not have been as amazing as it was without that dance!!!

- James and Vicki

Katie, You’ve been a complete superstar and we’ve absolutely loved it. Quite apart from you bringing to life for me a childhood (and adulthood dream) you’ve brought us SO much fun. Your patience and kindness has been extraordinary! We really can’t thank you enough and wish YOU all the very best.

- Peter and Caroline

Thank you so much for your enthusiastic, fun yet professional approach to our wedding dance. We just turned up and you had the plan sorted which fit exactly with what we were hoping for. I would certainly recommend you to friends in the future. You’ve inspired us to try out more types of dancing!

- Liz and James

Put simply it was probably the most exciting and fun 3 minutes of the whole day. It kicked the dance floor off to a relentless 3 hours of dancing by all! We had a wonderful day, everyone loved the dance you put together for us and we will certainly be recommending you to anyone in the area who is looking for dance lessons!

- Nick and Charlotte

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and to let you know that it all paid off. We had an absolutely amazing day that was topped off with the wedding dance which went brilliantly. We both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to give us such a magic moment.
