First Wedding Dances
Dances that will make you feel proud at the end of the night
Whether you’re a pro (after a few drinks) or aware of your two-left-feet syndrome, dancing in front of others can be stressful.
At Wedding Dance Canada, our highly educated instructors will work with you and your partner on a dance that is fun to learn, graceful, and most importantly, special to you as a couple.
Whether you're looking for something playful, or romantic and simple, we're experts at matching the dance to your personality but not necessarily your rhythm (no worries, we’ll work on that).
Get the party started!
We are dedicated to making your special event a remarkable occasion! Incorporating a sassy dance class into your Bachelorette celebrations is a wonderful (and inclusive) way to bond with your bridal party before the big day.
You are welcome to customize your experience to the fullest - you can pick a theme (think Burlesque, 90's, Beyonce jams, etc - the sky is the limit!), length of a party, etc.
With every party booking you will receive a bottle of sparkling wine to ensure during or after the dance class.
Beyond the traditional band and DJ...
Celebrate your union and your friends who have stuck by you through thick and thin — so if they’re having fun on your big day, chances are that you will be too.
From choreographed dances, roaming performers, hosts, singers...we have a diverse roster of local entertainers with years of experience at live events who'll bring an extra touch of glitter to your wedding.
