  • Wedding couple choreographed or Semi-choreographed First Dance
  • Father and daughter dance

Feel free to contact us by phone or email to discuss your needs, whether you are planning your wedding dance a year in advance, or some months ahead of time, or even if you’ve left it to the last minute. Whatever your needs, we will make sure that your wedding first dance is an unforgettable moment!

Planning a wedding is admin intensive and complicated! So, it was such a relief that our wedding dance lessons were uncomplicated. It was so great to deal with the organized Phoenix Dance Company team, and a great deal of fun! Our instructor, Chantell, choreographed a special dance for us to open our dance floor with at our wedding. She listened to each request, and was so patient with us when we struggled with a particular step. At the end of the dance lessons, we were ready for the dance floor and confident in our new abilities. Our guests also loved our routine! We can definitely recommend the Phoenix Dance Company to any wedding couples to be, or to any couples who merely want to take up a hobby together. Our wedding has now gone by, but we will definitely be back at Phoenix for more dance lessons in the future.

From the perspective of a complete dancing novice, I was surprised to find myself transformed from someone with two left feet to being able to pull off something passable for our wedding in just a couple of short classes. The instructors were friendly, accommodating and patient. Comes highly recommended!

We went to Phoenix Dance Company for our wedding first dance and it was an absolutely amazing experience! I still cannot believe what you made possible in only a few sessions and your way of teaching has got these two people (who couldn’t dance 2 steps together) thinking of continuing dancing for the rest of our lives! Thank you to everyone for all your help and energy and the fun we had!!!
