Wedding Dance Lessons

It's a big decision to get married and for some a scary one! Especially when you are considering a First Dance! But it doesn't need to be. We carefully cater our routines to suit each couple and their abilities and expectations. Whether a slow, romantic number to a more energetic routine we can create that special moment for you and your loved one :)
We approached Sam for dance lessons after a number of attempts by ourselves which consisted purely of a awkward shuffle! On enquiring Sam came across very enthusiastic and helpful and totally put our mind at ease.

On our first lesson Sam had already planned the routine which suited us perfectly. We were total beginners and Sam made us relax and really enjoy ourselves. By the end we left feeling confident. She even filmed it so we could continue practising at home.

Leading up to our wedding Sam kept in touch ensuring we were happy and we booked a last minute refresher. She never pressured us to do more or anything we didn't want.

On the day the dance went better than expected. We made a few mistakes but as Sam had said we could laugh it off and carry on. We can't thank Sam enough!! Highly recommend her

After deciding we wanted to do a choreographed routine for our wedding dance and picking a song we wanted to dance to, we did a quick search online and came across the Rollo Academy. Sam's response after contacting her was very encouraging, so we sent her the song and made our first appointment for a dance lesson.
On taking up our first lesson, Sam had already planned out the start of the dance and we finished the lesson with a video to take home with us so we could practice. We were overwhelmed by Sam's enthusiasm and energy, she is full of positivity and ideas which is just what you need when you are starting out with little confidence or experience. We had 4 lessons with Sam and practiced the routine at home and in the park in between lessons with the help of the video that Sam filmed during the lessons. 
When it came to the wedding day, our guests were blown away by the routine; so much so we were asked to perform it at a Christmas party which had an equally well received response. We couldn't thank Sam enough for her all her help in choreographing our dance, it continues to be the talk of our wedding and is something we would have not been able to do without her. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher to help them create the perfect routine.

Ian and I approached Sam as total dance beginners to help teach and choreograph something respectable for our wedding dance and I had chosen Time of Your Life which probably wasn't the easiest tune to dance to - particularly as I wanted to attempt a lift ! Sam was patient with both of us as we completely forgot the steps from one week to the next and she was funny and encouraging so that in the end we managed to surprise all our wedding guests with an amazing dance. I would thoroughly recommend Sam for a wedding dance and she is now a wonderful friend of is both too .

"Sam was fantastic, my husband has two left feet and Sam made a dance for us that followed the music perfectly, that we could both follow and that matched our personalities. It was a fun routine that had some surprises and humour and we loved it. We were both very nervous before hand but she made us feel at ease straight away. Thank you Sam for all your hard work with us"

"Sam’s patience, skill and ready humour made learning to dance for our wedding effortless and a lot of fun. Due to Sam's thorough preparation Laura and I were relaxed and confident on the day and enjoyed ourselves hugely."
Laura and John Saunders
"Sam really put a lot of effort into getting the music and routine right. It went down a storm at the wedding as no one was expecting it at all. We were very happy. Our routine was to “You’re Timeless to Me” from Hairspray which was an unusual choice I think! Sam wasn't fazed though."
