"My husband and I wanted to dance choreography for our first wedding dance. We were beginners but loved to dance and wanted to give it a go. We fortunately found Natalie three months prior to our wedding; and she was an absolute gem to work with. Had it not been for her motivation and dedication we probably would not have been able to make such an impact on our big day.
We got married in Castello di Vincigliata in Florence on the 29th September 2013, and one of our wedding highlights was dancing to our wedding song. Leading up to the big day, we did private lessons with Natalie once a week for the first month, and then we scaled it up to 2 lessons per week. Dancing after a busy day at work was a wonderful way to forget all the wedding stress and re-connect with my husband.
Natalie is an absolutely brilliant teacher and inspired us to not only perform on our wedding day but, actually continue to do the dance afterwards. So now every Wednesday my husband I do classes with Natalie. I should also mention that as expecting parents we are now enjoying dancing with a new addition on the way!"

"Discovering Natalie wasn't only one of our wedding day highlights, it was THE highlight of wedding planning. We had absolutely zero clue about our first dance, we couldn't even pick a song. Natalie was amazing at listening, getting to know us and choreographing the most perfect routine to reflect our personalities and style. She's an incredibly dedicated teacher, caring coach and a sensational dancer."
"We had an idea to do a hip hop style dance with some friends for our wedding as an alternative to a traditional first dance. None of us had any experience of dancing but Natalie's enthusiasm and encouragement, as well as her ability to be flexible within our requirements, gave us confidence that we could do it. We learnt the dance over a weekend six weeks before our wedding. We were really impressed with how pragmatic Natalie was in adapting the choreography to make it work for us given our mixed levels of ability. Natalie worked us really hard but we all had great fun making it a weekend to remember. On the day the dance was a great success. It was a complete surprise to our guests and we were showered with compliments. We would definitely recommend Natalie to any couple wanting to try something fun and different for their first dance. Thank you so much Natalie!"

“My husband and I stumbled upon Natalie by chance, and are so very glad we did. We left our wedding dance choreography to the last possible moment - emailing about 10 days before we were due to fly out (eek!). Not only was she accommodating in terms of her schedule, but what she managed to achieve with a couple who have no formal training, in only three lessons was extraordinary.
We were so impressed – she took the time to get to know us such that her choreography was reflective of our personalities and what we wanted to achieve on the night. She is a patient, kind and very talented teacher. We struggled with a few of the steps but she had a knack for breaking them down and taking us through them in a way that finally made sense. Natalie taught my husband how to lift and me how to dip, and she was keen to make sure that we felt comfortable with everything before moving on. Mostly though, we just really enjoyed the whole process – learning the steps, establishing trust, having plenty of laughs, and feeling like we were connecting in a new way was such an unexpected surprise leading up to the wedding that it was one of the highlights for us.
Many have said their dance lessons proved to be a source of relief from the stresses of wedding planning and a fun way to spend time with each other – they’re absolutely right. But you need a good teacher for that, and Natalie is your woman. She was a total joy to work with and we recommend her happily!
