A special evening

Hi Elma

Well - what a fantastic evening last night! We can't tell you enough how much we all enjoyed it. Such a lovely mix of entertainment and dancing and of course Kevin and Karen were just out of this world. That Rhumba was breathtaking. So, on behalf of our friends and us, thank you and well done for organising such a special evening.

Isabel & Edwin xx


Hi Elma,

Brilliant - the best event we've been to. Karen and Kevin were superb, very touching and very personal.

Well Done and Thanks

Alli & Martin - 31st October 2015

Elma helped us with our first dance for our wedding. All I can say is you have the patience of a saint Elma! You came up with some fantastic moves and knew exactly what we wanted & what fitted our music perfectly. Thank you so much. I will definitely recommend you to other couples looking for the same help! xx

Allison & Cameron - 22nd August 2015

Hi Elma,

Our first dance went really well! A few drinks helped keep any nerves at bay.

None of our guests were expecting us to do a proper dance so it was a lovely surprise for them on the night. Everyone seemed very surprised that we had learned that with you in just two lessons and even more surprised that I had managed to get Cameron to go to a lesson in the first place!

We would definitely recommend dance lessons with you to our friends as you were so friendly and very good at what you do, managing to get someone like me who has two left feet to do a choreographed dance is amazing and especially in only two hours of lessons with you! It is also amazing how quickly and easily you can come up with a dance to go with any given song!



Chris & Victoria - Married 15th September 2015

After watching an amazing first dance routine at a friend's wedding, we asked for Elma's contact details in the hope that she could help us prepare a dance for our big day. We had 4 sessions with Elma in total, and thoroughly enjoyed each one. She was extremely patient with us as its fair to say neither of us are natural dancers! We were really pleased with the final dance routine to the Waterboys' version of 'How Long Will I Love You'. It was simple which was exactly what we wanted, as the nerves and the big wedding dress added a bit of a challenge on the day. However the outcome was very effective, and its fair to say the crowd went wild!

A big thanks to Elma, we can't recommend her highly enough.

Chris and Victoria White.

Elaine & Mary - Married 7th February 2015

Myself and Mary would like to say a huge thank you for all your help and support in arranging our first dance with us. We truly both have 2 left feet but with your help we managed to pull off a great performance and even surprised ourselves.You have a lot of patience as we were not the easiest to teach but you helped us not make a total embarrassment of ourselves, so huge thanks from us both.

Carly & Charles - Married May 2015

Hi Elma,

Our wedding was amazing and the best day of our lives! Everything went perfect, including our first dance! We practiced a fair bit leading up to the wedding and felt confident so you will be pleased to know we mastered every move. We remembered all the steps and kept in time, the band were excellent. Everyone could tell we were dancing with some choreography so they left us alone to finish on the dance floor. We felt so good afterwards!

Thank you very much for your assistance and support Elma, your lessons helped us feel confident and master our first dance! We certainly impressed everyone! Your patience and direction were perfect.

Will send through some more 'action shots' separately as they are too big to send all at once!

Many thanks once again and will certainly call on you should we need any more dance steps.

Thainstone Events

Elma’s line dancing lessons were brilliant at the Thainstone Summer Hoedown, she had the dance floor packed and everyone had a great time learning the routines. I have already rebooked her for 2016! Yvette Harrison Event Manager, Thainstone Events

Fiona & Keith April 2015

Hi Elma, The dance went really really well: we had done a lot of practising at home and had it down to a tee, so the actual event went pretty much like a dream. Thank you so much for your input and patience: you gave us a lot of confidence as either of us had done much formal dancing before, and it meant that we weren't at all nervous at the evening reception. We have some photos which I can get Keith to post on your website and if we find that anyone has video footage we will definitely post that too. The wedding day was absolutely perfect: everything went smoothly and Keith and I both relaxed and enjoyed it rather than fretting about silly details! Thank you again for all your help. Please keep us posted when you are next running a social dancing course as we enjoyed it much more than we thought we would, and would be keen to improve our skills. Hope all well with you and the family.

Suzy and Mark married 11th October 2014

Hi Elma.

I hope you are well. Just wanted to say thank you again for all your help with Mark and my first dance. We both really enjoyed learning and doing it for real on our wedding day. I think it went down quite well. I will send the video from one of our guests through messages as it's too long to send via email. Thank you again and hopefully will try and get along to one of your dance lessons soon.

Jess & Alex married May 2014

We found Elma online when looking for a dance instructor to help us with our first dance. Like a lot of couples, we didn't want to be rooted to the spot, swaying back and forth in a dull and lifeless fashion, however, neither of us are particularly confident dancers. This did not make a difference to Elma!! From our initial meeting, right through to the final lesson, Elma remained friendly, approachable and willing to help us create a dance we wanted and felt comfortable with. After we told Elma what song we were wanting, she devised a simple, yet romantic routine for us to perform. Elma remained patient with us throughout all the lessons, and her easy going, likeable approach helped dispel any nerves very quickly. We were allowed an input on the routine and any proposed changes that she wanted to make, but Elma did not try to force any elements onto us that we were not comfortable with - after all , she made it very clear that it was OUR first dance! A true professional to the end, Elma did not try to make us book un-needed lessons in a bid for more money, and only asked to see us for a half lesson as we drew closer to the big day, in order to make sure we were happy with the finished article. She also worked her schedule around to suit us, which was a huge benefit given that we both work shifts, and getting time off together was complicated enough!

Elma, you made our first dance something to cherish, not fear and for that we will be forever grateful.

Rosie & Kevin married 16th May 2014

We would like to thank you so much for your hard work with us during the lessons we had and to make our dance very special and perfect, you did a great job - it just wouldn't have been the same at all if we hadn't gone to lessons with you! It was a big surprise to all of our guests including our parents (they didn't even know we had gone to lessons!) and they all loved it.

One of my friends said the next day that she had a fantastic time at our wedding and her favourite part was our first dance!! We also thoroughly enjoyed doing it and practising it beforehand too. Think it was just the pressure in front of everyone that made us muck up one bit but people said they didn't even notice :)
