Getting Married ? Want to do something different for your first dance or Hen / Stag night ? Here at East Devon Dance we have devised two different packages for you.

The Wedding Dance Package - This consists of two 1 hour lessons and one 1/2hour rehearsal prior to the big day. We will make your first dance one to remember, whether its traditional or a bit more unusual, we are happy to work with your specific requirements.

Hen/Stag Parties - This is a session of anything over one hour for groups of up to ten people. Based on your theme for the night, we will teach you a routine to help get the evening started. This can then be used to perform at the reception if required (and if you can remember it after the night out to follow!!). If you would like further information on prices and ask any specific questions, then please complete the contact form.
