Cakewalk & Ragtime Dancers

Wedding Survival!

Nervous about your “first dance”?
Surprise your guests with a magical and memorable dance routine. 
Our experience can help you from learning the basics to choreographing a simple (or not so simple!) routine for your first dance!

How many lessons will I need?
That really depends on you!
In one lesson you’ll usually learn at least 3 basic movess and a flashy ending.
In at least 3/4 lessons (which we recommend for most people) you’ll get to look more comfortable on the dance floor plus you will have learnt a skill for life.
In 6/12 or more lessons you can learn a polished choreography.

What people say…

Neither of us have had a one to one lesson before and it was really incredibly insightful and helpful. Simons teaching style is one of encouragement bringing out our strengths and individuality whilst working on our weaknesses to improve our overall dance style and technique.
