The big day is just around the corner and you have that all important first dance to plan. Do you and your man have two left feet? Looking to have something different and surprise all your guests? Are you struggling to put together a choreography?
Do you want to have an alternative to shuffling around the dance floor?
Academia de Salsa is based in Glasgow and is run by Shannon Shiel.
Knowing how important and nerve-wracking the first dance is, it gives Shannon immense pleasure to put together a choreography that will wow your unsuspecting guests on the Big Day!
The choreography is reasonably easy to put together using Shannon’s special technique. All you have to do is provide us with a song of your choice, any song that is special to you, and she’ll set to work on it. She can also edit down the song too.
Do we have to have previous dance experience?
Surprisingly NO. We can make it is simple or as complicated as you like. It’s great fun, meeting other wedding couples and having a laugh on the dance floor with them. The team from The Scottish Wedding Suppliers will also join in the fun! Bringing together the suppliers and wedding couples in a relaxed informal atmosphere is a great way to get to know each other.
How many sessions will we need?
Generally 3 to 4 sessions are recommended. 2 sessions to run through the basic moves, a third session to put it all together and video it for you to practice at home, and a final dress rehearsal on the fourth session.
