Make it a moment to remember
I am also a First Dance Choreographer, this means I teach couples how to dance together for special occasions, mainly on their wedding day.
Instead of just shuffling around the floor many couples wish to dance well together, I can help you do this by teaching a few basic steps and putting them together to form a routine.
The dance can be staged and choreographed so it is obvious you have worked on it or it can look as if you have danced together all your lives. It is a lovely added touch to make your day extra special
The lessons are arranged in your own home or venue of your choice, a large space is not needed a living room is fine and I will travel to you. The recommended amount of lessons is about 5 hours but you are able to have less or more depending on your requirements.

Single Ladies - The Bride and her Bridesmaids
Nesreen and her bridesmaids learnt Beyonce's Single Ladies routine to perform as the first dance at her wedding, it was a close to original as possible and looked amazing, I know as I w
I found Sammiedance school through a search on Internet. It was myself and my two bridesmaids and we learnt the single ladies routine for my wedding!
We were all more than pleased with our lessons and they were worth every penny. Sam is really friendly and down to earth and made us all feel comfortable straight away which always helps. If we didn't get a certain move then she was patient and went through it until we did, or found an alternative. The dance was spot on and all the guests loved it! So thanks again for all your hard work it definitely paid off ;).
Vicky and James from Maidstone had just an hour taster session with me to give them a few moves to perform on their wedding day, here are a few comments they made about the lesson.
When asked if they found the session useful Vicky replied:
"Definitely. We didn't use all the moves in the first dance, but used them all as the night went on! We did use the ending that you showed us though! We found that even just the hour lesson gave us enough confidence not to feel like idiots on the day. We practiced the different moves that you showed us until we found a sequence that we felt comfortable with - it's a bit different when you put the shoes on!!"
We found the session very confidence building, and felt very comfortable during the lesson itself. Also I felt at ease having the lesson in my own home - I felt less self conscious. Definitely glad we did it!
I would absolutely recommend Sammie's First Dance lessons. If we had given ourselves more time we would have booked a few sessions and actually learnt to dance! But if, like us, you leave it until the last minute an hour session is still definitely worth doing.
Yes, the session was definitely value for money, an hour’s dance lesson is worth not feeling silly or embarrassed on your wedding day! Our actual First Dance went very well. We were a bit nervous at first, but once we got into it we really enjoyed it. Everyone really liked the ending!
