This simply depends on whether you’re looking at just learning the basics of how to dance, a custom-made routine or something involving your bridal party – the more lessons we have, the more detailed and lengthy your dance can be. 

Lessons are held at Studio Glow in Pukete, where you will be taught at your pace to ensure you feel confident no matter where on the scale you sit, from absolutely amateur – to professional!

What do the packages cover:

  • initial consultation

  • dance lesson/time spent with couple

How do/can we choose the song?

I am here for you and happy to help to ensure that if the right song for your first dance as Mr & Mrs doesn’t seem to present itself, or you have too many to choose from, we can come to a decision that will work for you.

When choosing your music and playing with ideas for your dancetry these tips:

  • Select a song that you both love and can picture yourself dancing to.
  • Aim for a song that you know you won’t easily get sick of as it takes many practices and time playing the music over and over to have your routine looking wonderful! 

If you are interested in creating a routine for your special day, please email abby@studioglow.co.nz today to book your first consultation today!
