Paul was a fantastic teacher! He was patient, informative, and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy not only the dance itself, but the whole learning process as well. I couldn’t recommend him enough! A great teacher, and a consummate professional. Thanks Paul! More...

My adorable wife and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary in London. My wife is from Vienna and she had the brilliant idea of taking a lesson to finally learn the Viennese Waltz - which we've been butchering for the last 20 years. This would be our first ever dance lesson individually or together. After much searching she found Paul and from the first email exchange we knew we had found the right teacher. When we arrived for our lesson Paul immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable, as if we'd known him all along. As he guided us through our lesson we found that not only was he a gifted dancer, but a gifted teacher and what we learned was far beyond our expectations. It was not just a dance lesson but a deeply moving and emotional experience that reminded us of the deep connection great partners have -not only in dance but in marriage as well. Thank you, Paul- and we're looking forward our rumba lesson next.... More...

Paul really helped us create a memorable wedding dance. The sessions were relaxing and fun, and we were able to add our own touch. We highly recommend Paul to provide with not just the moves but the confidence to perform in front of all your family & friends. More...

Paul was amazing! Iain and I had so much fun learning as well as, obviously, on the night. Simple but impressive. No wedding shuffle for us; just cheers and clapping to our upbeat first dance. Can’t thank Paul enough. Rachel & Iain. More...

Paul was an excellent dance teacher for us and we highly recommend him. We had seven sessions (to put together a Viennese Waltz) in the weeks leading up to our wedding. Paul structured the sessions extremely well for us to learn, practice and gain confidence.Our wedding dance went really well and was actually an absolute pleasure to perform! Paul helped us to create and give us the confidence to perform (without appearing too showy and choreographed) what was one of the highlights of the day for us.Excellent teaching, support and conclusion - thank you Paul!Katarina and PhilipNote: Groom was convinced he had two left feet prior to taking lessons with Paul; yet ended up thoroughly enjoying the whole process and is looking forward to dancing more!

Paul has been the best teacher we could have ever found ! My fiancé and I decided to take dance lessons a year ago to prepare a waltz for our wedding and we have enjoyed every single minute of our 11 sessions. Paul is a charming man and the most flexible teacher for wedding prep couples - you will definitely have a great time! Dear Paul, thank you for your time and your constant joyfulness! More...

With only days left before our wedding, Paul's classes were indispensable in making our first dance a fun and emotional experience. He found the best choreography for us, taking into account our limited experience in dancing and our personal preferences. He was also very flexible so we managed to fit the classes around a busy schedule. More...

We were complete beginners with tight schedule and pre-wedding stress. We were only 1 week away from doing our first wedding dance. We can't believe how in four lessons Paul immediately made us feel at ease and confident with the impressive choreography of our dance routine. We were very glad to have taken the lessons. Paul helped make our first wedding dance perfect. Our family & guests were amazed with the dance routine.We highly recommend Paul to any couple looking to impress their guests as he is patient, inspiring, friendly and an exceptional mentor as a dance instructor. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Paul.Theresa & Rolf More...

Thank you for your time last Saturday Paul. It was a great experience. My friends and I had no idea what to expect in the first place and I must admit we have been positively surprised! The party started off definitely early morning with a very high note! Let's keep in touch after the wedding! Thank you very much! Pauline. More...

Paul is excellent, fun and effective. I rarely give 5 stars but we really couldn't have asked for any better a dance teacher. He made our first dance effortless (and that's how he demonstrates good value of money!). More...

Paul was fun, friendly and easy to work with. He knows his dance of course and pushed us to our capability given the time. He was realistic and practical and understood what a wedding dance needed to be. We created an fantastic foxtrot that we were very proud of and impressed at our wedding. Avoid the wedding shuffle! Thanks Paul, top guy. More...

Paul taught my wife and I a waltz routine for the first dance at our wedding. Paul is a great teacher and a really nice guy. The dance went great, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul or see him for further dance tuition. More...

We waltzed and all thanks to Paul! With no ballroom experience, Paul put together a wonderful routine that we performed to the best of our abilities for our first dance last September. We so highly recommend Paul to couples looking for guidance and lessons for their first dance. So why? Attention to detail making sure everything is covered (e.g. making sure your dress and shoes are taking into consideration); Amazing ability to teach and breakdown complicated routines into bite size pieces; So accommodating with lessons, be it early or late in the day to fit around busy work schedules; Practical advice for the big day; and he genuinely cares and is a great guy! Instead of dreading our first dance, we were looking forward to it! Thank you so much Paul - we did it! Alex & Harvey More...

Paul was a wonderful dance instructor, very easy to get along with and puts you at ease. He takes his dancing seriously but makes sure there is lots of laughter and enjoyment. He tailors his classes to the individual couples dance ability. We felt so prepare for our first dance and everyone at the wedding was very impressed. Highly highly highly recommend Paul. More...

Paul is outstanding. As a dance mentor he is second to none. He is an ‘old school’ gentleman - manners, charm and true friendship. I, as a man of two left feet, was very apprehensive for ‘the first dance.’ It’s safe to say I was falling short of my better half! Under Paul’s wing my confidence grew exponentially to the point where the moves and the (music) beat came naturally to me. Moreover, on the ‘Big Day’ - it was something I was looking forward to… and, of course, with Paul’s help we nailed it!
What made Paul’s mentorship even more meaningful - he also supported my new father in law with his ‘father of the bride’ dance. Speaking on his behalf, he too fully supports the above. Our collective guidance to you: don’t debate, deliberate or contemplate - give Paul a call.
With much love - Jon, Rachel, David

We had two lessons before our first dance at our wedding and Paul made us feel very comfortable with the entire experience. He choreographed a beautiful dance and we felt great on our wedding day - all thanks to him explaining how to introduce, execute and finish the dance. I would absolutely recommend a few lessons with Paul. Everyone at the wedding commented on how amazing we looked on the dance floor. More...

The prospect of having dancing lessons before our wedding was one that didn't fill me with joy. My one previous attempt at such lessons ended with a very muddled and badly executed trip around a dance floor, with me forgetting almost every one of the carefully planned moves. Paul's approach was, however, completely different and proved to be really effective. He started to put me at ease from the first lesson, with my confidence increasing each time we saw him. By the 5th and final lesson I was genuinely enjoying it! Over the course of the lessons he taught us basic steps and then added only as many other steps as we could execute. There was no complicated routine to remember, which meant that we could "perform" even if we messed up. The dance itself was then really good fun. We didn't do exactly what we'd planned, but Paul had given us enough confidence and capability to complete the dance to rounds of applause. I really can strongly recommend him and his whole approach!

My husband and I :-) have no hesitation in recommending Paul for preparing for that daunting first dance. Tim had limited dance experience and some embedded fear of it all - but Paul handled this all with great diplomacy and gave practical tips for building confidence. As a dance teacher, he listens first and then advises, taking a coaching approach - checking in regularly with what each of us felt about the dancing. We had 5 lessons in total and benefited from all of them. We ended up so confident that we coped very well on the day and were able to respond to the mood and music on the night in a way that was unimaginable at the start of the learning process!! We were awarded a resounding '10' from the guests on the night. Paul made the whole process enjoyable and set realistic goals which we definitely achieved. Thank you Paul! More...

We had such an amazing and fun dance class, Paul is an excellent dance teacher. We recommend him for all your fun hen party and wedding dancing needs. He was so helpful leading up to the hen party, and helped us organise a dance studio with a kitchen to have food and drinks. He went over and beyond! Thank you Paul! More...

Paul taught us our wedding dance. To begin with he asked us lots of questions about the kind of music we would want, the kind of people we are, etc. , which helped us figure out the dance we wanted to choose. Paul is very good at what he does and understands people very well to provide them feedback, help etc in a great way. We have loved our lessons with Paul and the best thing for us was to actually have that time to ourselves and do the dance whilst potentially having been a little stressed during the wedding planning. It just gets you away from it all for a little bit of time and Paul has been able to create the perfect environment for us and make it very enjoyable. We would certainly recommend Paul!!! More...

Excellent experience, highly recommended! I booked two last minute lessons with Paul to put together a wedding first dance. Paul is extremely professional, friendly and talented. I was very impressed how much my partner and I improved in such a short amount of time. We learned new moves, put it together in a nice way to go with our chosen song and also improved a lot our dancing posture/form. In feel so confident and excited about my first dance, can't wait for the big day! More...

Paul is a fantastic, patient and dedicated teacher! As we weren’t sure what type of dance we should do, Paul helped us explore the various choices and decide on the perfect option for our chosen song. We really enjoyed the classes and were able to fine-tune our first dance within weeks, making progress with every session – which gave us confidence to perform it well on the big day! Paul had plenty of great and useful advice for us, which helped a lot. We would highly recommend Paul for any couple, regardless of their level of experience. More...

We decided to book dance lessons with Paul only two weeks before our wedding. In only two lessons, Paul was able to design a perfectly executable waltz program for us. We especially appreciated the efficiency of Paul's teaching techniques focusing on directly applicable moves. Two weeks later our first dance at our wedding got lots of praises thanks to Paul. He is an amazing teacher! More...

Paul was an amazing teacher. We did expect to reach such a level in only a few lessons. The lessons were very fun and relaxing. Actually we did not think we would be able to deliver our first dance with such confidence. We can only recommend Paul to any other couples! More...

So so so glad we chose Paul to help us create our first dance! He is a true gem! In our first lesson we talked through the song we wanted, the type of dance we wanted and that instantly made us feel at ease. It continued throughout all the lessons we had and it was such a nice escape from the stress of wedding planning! Our wedding was characterised by our first dance and I'm so glad that we took these lessons. Highly highly recommended! More...

Highly recommended. Paul is an absolute gentleman and a great dancing instructor. He managed to make a great choreography for us for our wedding first dance. He made the class very enjoyable and fun, while walking us through the dance itself. We would happily go back for other classes. More...

Paul is a very inspiring dance teacher and helped make our first wedding dance very special. We weren't confident when we started as we were complete beginners. In just a few lessons we started feeling comfortable moving around the dance floor and enjoyed each moment of it. Our guests were amazed!! Thanks Elena and Mike More...

Paul choreographed a lovely rumba for the first dance at our wedding. He was able to work with our song of choice and helped us break the dance into segments so we could learn it easily. Would definitely recommend him!

Fantastic experience, Paul is very professional, polite and efficient. He explains very well and he is a nice person. I went there forced by my girlfriend and I realised that I really needed them. I do not usually score 5 starts but this time I definitely have to do it. Thank you Paul. More...

Paul is a fantastic dance teacher and just a great individual - made the lessons fun and enjoyable despite the time pressure we faced (we had only 4 weeks before our wedding day when we finally got to the dance studio) and the nerves! My husband and I did not do any form of dancing together previously - occasional moves on a crowded club dance floor aside - Paul took two beginners and made us look like semi-pros by the 4th lesson (at least that's how it looked to us on the video recording of our final practice!). We came to him not know what dance we wanted or even what music we wanted, yet he managed to quickly guide us through to our eventual choice. He was really helpful with many tips from his experience with other couples and instilled enough confidence in us to do our Waltz on the day and actually enjoy it! We would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a dance teacher for their first dance!

To Paul - with many thanks and best wishes.

Paul was absolutely great. I have never done any dance before, and my wife very little. We now have a lovely routine which we put together in just three lessons and it's just perfect, so much more than we thought we'd be able to achieve, and still thoroughly enjoyed learning! He knows when to be fun, when to be patient, when to push you, etc. and tailors all of that to what you want. If you want to be ambitious with your dance, he'll push you hard and make sure you get the absolute maximum improvement from your lessons. If you are stressed enough as it is and just want to learn some basics so that you don't trample each other, he will probably push you just a little more than you want at the time, but you will look back and be glad that he did, he really does know his stuff and his customers!

Paul was a brilliant teacher and we really enjoyed our classes with him! Nick (now my husband) wasn't at all keen to do a first dance - he likes to play rugby / sport and was not keen to learn how to dance but Paul was so patient and has given him so much confidence, he's even keen to keep up dancing! Thank you Paul!! I would 100% recommend dance lessons with Paul - you don't need to look any further for the best dance teacher!!! More...

Paul was incredible from start to finish. In the space of four lessons, he taught us technique in a comfortable but efficient manner whilst keeping the whole experience so fun. Wedding planning can be a stressful time but Paul made sure that our first dance allowed us to enjoy the process and look forward to our special day! Aside from being such a talented dancer and teacher, Paul puts in a lot of effort and passion to help you achieve your dream dance and vision. Nothing but praise for this experience and would recommend highly for all, even if you have left it last minute like we did! More...

Paul is an absolute gem - we started with him about three months before our wedding and we were so thrilled with the final result. Paul is so lovely and clearly very passionate about he does. We cannot recommend him enough. For anyone considering dance lessons to take the dread out of the first dance, do it. It is such fun and Paul is a great teacher. More...

We have had such a special experience learning how to dance our first dance with Paul, the whole process from first phone call to last dance lesson has been totally personalized to us.

We decided a few weeks before our wedding that we wanted to do a Viennese waltz for our first dance as my husband is Austrian. I had never waltzed before so was a little scared about what we had agreed to do. We picked a song and then had no idea where to start!

We contacted Paul having read great reviews. Paul was really wonderful right from the beginning. He was extremely flexible and made time for us on very short notice. He clearly understood that we wanted to learn the basic steps and have a little routine so that we didn’t make complete fools of ourselves. Paul was an amazing teacher who put together a lovely routine for us that was not overly choreographed. We really loved our first dance and our friends and family went wild! We highly recommend Paul.

We had a fantastic experience with Paul. He is an excellent teacher, professional and friendly and obviously passionate about his work. His help was invaluable in giving us the skills and the confidence to go into our first dance. He tailored the teaching to our level so we could handle the steps, but managed to make the whole thing look fantastic even if the steps were simple. He is also very forthcoming and flexible with schedule, which helps a lot if your schedule is hectic. More...

Q&A

Being able to help couples shine on the big day with their wedding first dance.

Wanted to learn to dance and in the process I decided I could make a difference if I showed other people they can dance.

I deliver excellent results, great value in half the requirement time.

Each couple will end up with a unique wedding dance they can treasure forever.
