Full Description
Hello, I'm Beatrice, or Beattie. I love dance and I love working with couples about to get married - it's an honour and a privilege. No matter what your experience or ability, I will choreograph a dance to make you feel comfortable on the dance floor while looking elegant and/or fun. You choose the music and the style of dance, I'll choreograph it and teach you what to do and how to enjoy it. I have choreographed in many styles : Fred & Ginger, Janet Jackson, John Travolta & Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction), Step Up and more. And to music from the Twilight movies to Frank Sinatra's swing albums. Please ask. Make your dream come true!

The Byrne's First Dance
When it comes to wanting a great customised & choreographed wedding dance, I cannot recommend B enough. As a couple with four left feet, B filled us with confidence that we would be able to dance at our wedding, looking like professionals and she wasn't wrong. B taught us in my small lounge a variety of steps, moves and even a big lift! She made a completely custom dance for us and once a week taught us how to do each stage before linking them all together. I was amazed how we remembered all the moves and how smoothly we danced, all under B’s expert instruction. My wife and I could not recommend B enough, as non dancers we had the most amazing professional first dance that our friends and family still talk about to this day.

The Padstow Wedding
My daughter and her fiancé were happy about every other part of the wedding but the dance was finally getting them down. Beattie's humour, patience and love of dance shone through when she started to give them the 'Emergency Dance Package'. The very best part of Beattie's work was hearing my daughter and her fiancé laugh after just 45mins of dancing with her. They giggled all through their dance lessons, they smiled throughout their First Dance and laughed when the dog walked onto the dance floor and joined in! As we met Beattie while walking dogs on the beach, we felt it was poetic justice. Employing Beattie? It's a great idea.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

The Byrne Wedding

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Astaire, Travolta, Micheal!

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that I make couples of any ability feel and look great for their wedding.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As far as dance is concerned, the couple need to know the music and the steps so well that they can dance them in their sleep. On the morning of the wedding I may wake up thinking of the steps of their First Dance, but t hey will have lots else to think of. The dance needs to be as natural as breathing.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Love and smiles of the guests.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We chat about your dance experience, ability, the style of your wedding, your outfits and how they may affect your dance, the music you want, the dancers you want to look like : Fred & Ginger? John Travolta? Step Up? Diversity? You choose and I put it together then teach you.....

What makes a romantic first dance?

A kiss somewhere in the smooth performance.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Too many to choose from.

Jackson 5.

Something from Jill Scott.
