First Dance Weddings

First Dance Ltd provides fun and informal dance lessons for all couples considering their first dance options. Operating since 2002, First Dance Ltd specialises in wedding dance tuition for all couples whatever their age, ability or requirements. All lessons are taught in our private dance studio in Woking, Surrey and we offer all couples a FREE Initial Consultation at the studio or on Zoom.

The studio is now open and First Dances are allowed as there are only three of us being in the studio. Please note that there are COVID-19 guidelines in place. Please get in touch with us on for further information and dates. 

Initial Consultation

Initial Consultation – Free

Our initial consultation is completely free and non-obligatory. We will have a 30-45 min informal chat at the studio so we can discuss your options and get an idea of the type of lessons you would like – choose from our classic package or a one-off lesson.

One-off Lessons

One-off lessons – £55

This comprises of a one hour dance lesson where we will teach you some basic moves and turns to get you round the floor. If you are choosing this option, it’s best to book one about 2-3 weeks before the wedding, just in case you need a follow-up or a refresher closer to the big day.

Classic Package

The classic package – £199

This package consists of three one-hour dance lessons, where we teach you a routine to a song of your choice. The choreography can be as natural or as flamboyant as you like! This is perfect for couples that need a bit of structure and would feel happier learning a routine, rather than just winging it. Ideally you will need to start your lessons around 4-6 weeks before your wedding day however we can accommodate you last minute too.


First Dance studio location: Heather Farm, Horsell, Woking.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday: 9am – 9.30pm and Sat and Sun: 9am – 5.30pm.

    First Dance FAQs

    Got a question about your First Dance? Well, you might find the answer in our FAQs below…

    How soon before the wedding do we need to come in for lessons?

    You should ideally think about starting lessons anywhere around 4-12 weeks before the wedding. If you start any earlier, you could forget everything – or get bored of it.

    What are my options if we live too far away?

    If you’d like to book the package, then we can split the 3 x 1hr lessons into 2 x 1hr 30mins lessons to save on travelling – or if you live even further away, we can teach you the whole thing in one day! We can also do the consultation over the phone to save you coming in to the studio too.

    Can you really teach us to dance in just three lessons?

    Yes! Everyone is always surprised at how quickly they pick it up – even those with two left feet!

    I’m getting married next weekend! Is there any way you can help us?

    Of course! We’ll never turn anyone away! If you’ve left it a bit too late, then you can come in for an hour or more of tuition. We’ll keep it simple and effective – but give you some moves to take away with you!

    How much practise do we have to do at home?

    We’re not expecting much, but obviously the more you practise (especially in the beginning after the first lesson) then the easier it will be in the end. Ideally, you’d want to practise 2-3 times a week for about 10mins each time.

    We don’t really want it to look like we’ve had lessons – what are our options?

    The majority of our couples don’t want anything too staged, and we can choreograph it specifically so it looks nice and natural. Every couple has input into how they want their dance to look.

    What happens if we can’t decide on a song?

    Don’t panic – we give you all the advice you need at our free Initial Consultation or you can always email us and we can help you decide which would be best / give you tips on how to choose the perfect song for your day.

    I’m panicking about the dress / shoes – should I be worried?

    Not at all! We suggest that you bring in similar shoes to practise in on the last lesson – as it makes quite a difference! If you’re worried about the style of your dress / formal wear affecting how you dance, let us know before the lessons begin and we will choreograph your first dance accordingly.

    This sounds like an excellent wedding present idea for someone – can I buy vouchers?

    Yes – and they make great presents for nervous couples! Although, most couples like to keep it a secret, so don’t go round telling too many people! For details on vouchers, contact us on 07966 513981 or email
