WEDDING DANCE LESSONS
Your first dance should be memorable and emotionally touching. Historically, the wedding dance is symbolic of the consummation of a bridal couple's wedding vows and it marks your first cooperative engagement and joint endeavour. When the bride accepts a dance with the groom, she accepts him for the rest of her life. The frame and posture of the groom when he proposes the dance to the bride speak of the source of strength, love, companionship, and guidance he offers his bride.
The bridal dance has continued throughout history as one of the most important facets of the wedding day. It is the moment when the Bride and the Groom put on a show in front of the guests, and everybody's eyes will be on them.
We cater for all types of personalities and styles, and make you look good and shine on the dance floor while dancing to your favourite music. This is the time when you express the love and affection towards each other through art. What's most exciting in this life than being able to put feelings in the form of art?
At Sydney Dance Rhythms, we will customise your bridal dance steps to suit your individual needs and as a couple to help you with your first dance on your wedding day.
Our choreographies range from couple to couple, and we can cater for complex and sophisticated dancers to couples with limited or who have no experience in dance.
We recommend that a minimum of 5 classes are taken in order to familiarise yourselves with a routine and to get a crisp finish just before your big day.
We can teach a range of styles from a bridal waltz to a viennese waltz or a wedding rumba. If you are unsure of the style of dance that you would like to learn, you can leave it up to us. We will structure the lessons and the dancing according to your ability and personality.
We offer affordable quality packages to suit individual needs. Furthermore we encourage couples to have input into their routines, and in this way they work more intimately together and discover joy through dancing, and they also get to know each other better.
We individualize our choreographies to suit each couple depending on their skills and personalities, song choice and type of dance they require, and we work towards achieving a spectacular wedding dance performance.
We have been involved in any event which requires a dance or performance. Not only do we specialize in bridal dancing, but we have also helped parents, friends and relatives to dance at the bridal couple's wedding.
Sydney Dance Rhythms instructors can cater for special dance performances, and we can provide dance instructions for your wedding event.

"We were soooo happy with our first dance – we loved the steps and just had a lot of fun with it on the night! Thanks very much to you and Cristina for putting the routine together – it really suited us!" Amy and James
"Thank you (and Rey) so, SO much for everything, particularly all the extra time you put into our lessons. The routine was AMAZING and everyone's jaws literally dropped! I had a quick look at the video and all the guests had massive smiles on their faces - so our mission to surprise everyone with an upbeat, feel-good wedding dance was definitely accomplished!
Oh, and I danced in my wedding shoes and it was totally fine 😉
It was so wonderful, and most of all relaxing. All the hard work earlier in the week really paid off as we knew everything was done." Zahra and Ijo
"We went to Sydney Dance Rhythms to learn to dance for our first bridal dance. Me being flatfooted on the dance floor I was pretty unhappy to attend any kind of dance class, let alone to create a personalised routine to perform in front of my closest friends and family. However, I was amazed at how much fun Cristina (and Ray) made it for us. She was able to create a custom made routine which consisted of a number of different dance styles. I was always impressed with her enthusiasm and encouragement during the whole process and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone" Tegan and Amay (Wedding in Feb 2013; Dance style - Cha Cha, Samba and Bollywood)
"Cristina is a fantastic dance teacher. In just 3 lessons she taught us a beautiful routine and had us really excited about dancing at our wedding. She catered the routine to our skill level so we would feel comfortable on the day, and was really encouraging throughout the lessons. We would definitely recommend Cristina to anyone who wanted to learn to dance." Jen and Steve (Wedding in May 2010; Dance Style - Slow Waltz)
"Thank you so much for your help with our dance. We would not be able to do it without you. Everything was perfect, or almost perfect. We didn't make it for the last dip because my dress didn't allow it, but it looked natural and beautiful, just as I had it in my dreams. " Oxana and Evan (Wedding in December 2012; Dance Style - Slow Waltz)
"Dear Cristina, Thank you for your patience, creativity and passion in being our Wedding dance teacher. It was delightful working with you and you made the classes a lot of fun! As we had never had dance lessons before, we were initially nervous, but you made all the butterflies go away by tailoring the choreograph to meet our dance experience and explaining dance concepts so we could easily understand them! We received many compliments on our dance and we owe that to you! Thank you once again!! We will not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends! Jodie and Michael (Wedding in March 2013; Dance Style - Foxtrot)
"Our wedding was last year in July. I can say that my husband and I have done a lot of preparation for this big event. One of the priorities for us was the bridal dance. In this area we had the pleasure to work with two wonderful and passionate people, who have taught us lots of things about dancing.
They first let us chose our own song and they worked on that so we can have a beautiful dance. Cristina even had couple of songs ready in case we were finding it hard to decide one of our own. Also she was very patient when we struggled with the routine and believed that we would be able to learn it in time, although she was checking all errors and correct them immediately. Ray and Cristina were always customising the steps for us so we could look better when some of the moves did not allow us to perform accordingly. And I think the most important had to be the support they gave us along the way.
The venue in Summer Hill is really spacious and did allow us to rehearsal exactly the way we would have done it at the reception.
I will recommend to any couple preparing for their big day to contact Sydney Dance Rhythms. For us was unique and we could not have done it without Cristina and Ray's help.
We thank you for this memorable experience." Claudiu and Ramona (Wedding in June 2013; Dance Style - Viennese Waltz)
"Hoping you're well! Kevin and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help with our dance we did it! We had so many compliments and it is all thanks to you!
We will send through some photos when we get back from the honeymoon and see you soon!" Bianca and Kevin (Wedding in October 2013; Dance Style - Foxtrot)
