Well done on checking us out. It means you’re thinking seriously about your wedding dance. And that’s really cool – it may well be the talking point of your special day.
The dance is up to you. Whatever you like – traditional, contemporary, classical, jazzy, funky, waltzy, nowhere near waltzy, groovy, rock’n’rolly or even dirty-dancey – we can make you shine on your wedding day!
We usually find couples fit into one of three categories:
A lot of the time, the most reluctant become the most enthusiastic. All it takes is a weekly commitment for 6 months, but it’s a fun 6 months – we’re into making fun.
You want to dance at your wedding?
QuickSteps is Adelaide’s biggest social dance studio. We provide private, personalised lessons for all kinds of dance styles. So, after you’ve walked down the aisle, you can Tango, Rumba, Salsa, Swing (or whatever you have in mind) across the dance floor at the reception.
We are professional, enthusiastic and love what we do. And so will you!
That’s why the first lesson is on us, with absolutely no obligation.

We won’t lie, it’s not easy.
dresses are not designed with dancing in mind. They are for making you look pretty!
Ask your dressmaker to add a bustle to the back so you can lift the excess material off of the ground.
Some students change into another dress, particularly if they’re planning some crazy/special dance.
Ensure you discuss your dress with your QuickSteps dance teacher. They’re experts, and will know how to take different dress types into consideration.
The type of dance style you do is determined by the song you choose.
Many people are surprised to find out that wedding dances these days are not waltzes as typical wedding music is not suited to the waltz.
If you’re looking for something romantic, there’s a good chance that a Rumba will be the dance style best suited for you.
Something upbeat? Swing and Cha Cha are good options too but you will need a few more lessons to ensure it looks smooth and effortless.
The problem can be that there are too many choices! Here are a few tips.
1. Pick a song you both like. You’ll be hearing it a lot before the wedding!
2. Make sure the lyrics are appropriate – have you really listened to the words? Make sure it’s not about a breakup!
3. Think back to significant times in your relationship, like when you met. What music were you listening to then?
4. Have you ever been to a concert together? Perhaps a song from that album would be nice.
But most of all, don’t worry. Our dance teachers are experts. Explain to them what you listen to, and they will give you some options to go home to think about.
Many people these days don’t have ‘their song’ but once you choose one and learn to dance to it, it will quickly become ‘your song’.
It really depends.
What do you want to do? How quickly do you learn?
Most couples have about 15 lessons. Fewer than this and you might look a bit robotic while dancing, and your audience will be able to sense.
If you’re both quick learners, maybe 8-10 lessons will be enough for you to feel comfortable and look smooth.
Some couples come in two years prior – now that’s true love!
See – it really depends!
Make sure you come in at least 6 to 9 months before your wedding.
You don’t have to dance all the way up until your wedding – but you’ll be thankful you started early. Most couples are extremely hectic in the months just prior to their wedding, and having your dance lessons ticked off early is a great relief.
Hear what our students think about us… it’s all good of course
