Elma has many years of experience as an Instructor
"First Dance" came around due to the number of couples looking to learn a dance for their "First Dance" as Husband and Wife. Not wanting to look silly by not knowing how to dance, they needed someone to help them on this very special occasion.
I can take away all the worry behind, what dance, what music, and what steps, so that your first dance is not only memorable but so it will wow your guests.

Why choose First Dance classes
"We had arranged everything for our wedding; the location, the band, the photographer, the minister... but I was terrified because I knew, in front of all our family and friends, we'd have to dance!
Having only ever done the occasional Ceilidh dance (the easy ones) I was rather anxious about the First Dance and spoiling the special occasion with my complete lack of dancing skills. Even worse, I didn't want us to stand and rock side to side like teenagers to their first slow dance.
So we managed to track down Elma and gave her a phone, instantly we were relieved that someone, who we'd never met before, had given us some assurance that they would be able to sort it all out for us.
So we went to our First Dance class and to be honest I was still pretty terrified, but by the end of the night, I knew that I'd be able to get through the dance with the help of Elma. Not only had we learned our first couple of steps, but we'd also changed our music after Elma demonstrated how difficult it would be to dance to, but as we started to think of an alternative Elma put on a song that was perfect.
After several more classes Elma came out to our Wedding venue so we could practice on the actual dancefloor and before we knew it we were standing waiting to enter and do our First Dance as Husband and Wife.
Being able to move around the dance floor felt fantastic and we got plenty of shouts and claps from our guests who, to be honest, were rather surprised I think.
So if you're looking to learn how to dance Elma's the one to get in touch with.
