Hello! I have 20+ plus years’ dance experience in ballroom, latin, jazz, tap, ballet, and contemporary. I’ve worked professionally throughout Australia, London and Asia performing in everything from corporate floor shows, children’s entertainment (including national tours), musicals, and a range of South Australian arts festivals, including Fringe, Cabaret and Feast. I’ve also worked as a singer and actor in feature films, television commercials and television series.
I’m here to help you create a special and memorable first dance for your wedding. While many will see a first dance as just a traditional part of wedding celebrations, I see it as more than that. A first dance at a wedding is one of the only times during the day when it’s just the two of you, and the wonderful whirlwind slows for a few minutes, giving you both an opportunity to truly be present and enjoy being a married couple.
I understand that many couples aren’t sure where to start when it comes to preparing for a first dance (and many don’t prepare at all). I’m here to not only help you with some dance moves and choreography tailored to your ability, but to help turn any uncertainty, apprehension or outright dread into excitement and fun. I’ll work with you both to create a dance that you can both love and enjoy together.
The photo above is of my husband Owen and I at our wedding. Owen doesn’t have much experience with dancing, so we ended up doing something that was ‘us’ and combined both of our abilities. This is my approach with all couples. I'll tailor your dance to reflect your personal preferences, your various abilities, and, most significantly, your love for one another.
