Q. My partner and I are useless at dancing and are thinking of hiring a professional to help us create an amazing first dance. What are the benefits and what should we ask before booking?

A. Emma Brewer says: There are lots of options available. One-off lessons will help you get around the dancefloor, or a package of three lessons will ensure you wow your guests. Most companies will be able to help people with all abilities from those that have danced before to couples that have two left feet! Get in touch to discuss your needs. We offer a free consultation in person or on Zoom to see what type of music you're considering and when you should start your lessons. Try and relax and turn it into a fun experience.

Q. It's always been my dream to perform a wow-factor dance that will impress our guests. I want it to be upbeat and modern. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Emma Brewer says: There are lots of different ways you can create an impressive dance. We've created a number of routines where couples have chosen their favourite song and we have organised the choreography. Keep in mind that simple dances are often more effective and crowd-pleasing.

Choose a current song that will appeal to all generations or a medley. If it was me, I would choose something from Bruno Mars or The Chainsmokers. Remember you both have to love the tune as you'll be hearing it a lot in rehearsals.

Q. We want to wow our guests on the big day. Do you have any suggestions on how we can do this?

A. Emma Brewer says: There are lots of ways you can impress your friends and family during your first dance. The majority of couples are happy shuffling around the floor but if you want something a bit different, why not consider a medley? Start with a slow song and transform it into something more crowd-pleasing. Remember in order to pull off a great routine, you'll need to put in the hours and work.

Choose a piece of music that you love and means something special to you both.

Alternatively, you could opt for a specific style such as Latin or ballroom. Find a course or class near you and leave plenty of time to rehearse before the big day.

If you don't have much spare time, then choose a tune you both like and gaze into each other's eyes and smile throughout.
