Make you shine

Congratulations on your engagement!

How Does QuickSteps Work?

Been at an event and felt you were sitting and watching everyone else have a good time?

We passionately teach dancing through a combination of private and group lessons – the best way become comfortable and confident.

Partner dancing is what we are all about…but you don’t need a partner! Salsa, rumba, cha cha, tango, waltz, swing, rock ‘n roll, foxtrot and more.

Questions and answers

How can I dance in my dress?

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.

What dance should we learn for our first dance?

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.

Help! How do I choose a song?

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’.

How many lessons will we need?

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!

How much lead time do we need to allow?

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.
