Fiona & Scott married 9th November 2013

We were too nervous to do it at the start of the night so we waited until after the stovies break. It went down a storm, Scott's Dad had just given an impromptu speech which we weren't expecting (and was hilarious) so when Scott started wandering round the dance floor everyone thought I didn't know about that either (apparently I did a brilliant bewildered expression!).

We are so grateful to you, you were very patient with us and if we do manage to get someone with some dance footage we will forward it to you asap.

 
Dean & Sonia Married 10th June 2014

Our wedding was a great success and we managed to perform our routine without any mistakes. Thank you very much for your help and patience with us, it was very much appreciated. Over our 6 weeks of lessons, Elma helped us to perfect our first dance as a married couple. Throughout the lessons Elma took us through the basic steps of our dance before going on to perfect the movements. Elma was patient, reliable and enthusiastic throughout the whole process making it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

I'll send through a photo once I get them back from the photographer.

 

Kind Regards, Dean & Sonia

 
Kay and Andy married March 2014

When researching online for dancing instructors and choreographers, we came across Elma Robertson at Elma Events.  She has a section on her website dedicated to First Dances.  This was exactly what we were looking for!  We definitely did not want to look silly and bore our wedding guests doing our speciality ‘the foot shuffling sway’.  From the moment we got engaged we knew that having dancing lessons for our first dance was a requirement.  Neither of us are gifted dancers, uncoordinated and clumsy best described us before we had our dancing lessons with Elma.   

During the lessons Elma was so encouraging and reassuring that our nerves soon dwindled as did our sway.  Before we knew it we were actually dancing, and really well! Elma was so enthusiastic and her ideas were perfect with our first dance song.  She really made our first dance experience an enjoyable and memorable one, and our guests are still complementing our dance routine!

Kind Regards

Karen and Steve married 28th February 2014

I first saw Elma on LinkedIn and as we really wanted to be able to do more than just move around the dance floor for our first dance, Elma seemed the ideal choice for us. We met with Elma and after our first lesson we were dancing!! Elma recorded us dancing our routine and we went home and practiced, we had another two lessons with Elma and we were delighted with the final choreographed routine. Then came the big day, the first dance was a resounding success with lots of whooping and cheering from our guests, it got our wedding evening off to a great start.  Thanks Elma we hope we did you proud!!

Kind regards
Karen

Line Dancing Social Weekend

Hi Elma - Just to say how much I enjoyed my first line dancing social week-end - and of course, so did my sister! She also asked me to pass on her thanks to you, Jackie and the 'girls! for making her feel so very welcome. It was a great week-end - thank you!

Jive Classes 2013


I really enjoyed our Jive classes at the Holburn bar. They were fun and educational . Our granddaughter also loved them and can now jive with her Granda when we are all out together. Can't wait until January 2014 until you start your next block of dances. I am hoping it is the Waltz and the Cha Cha.

Thank you again Elma,

Charles and Irene.

Jive Classes

Dear Elma Thanks a lot for your jive classes.

It started like as the challenge for me as I never danced jive before but then become a great fun! Thanks a lot for your help in teaching us, you were very positive and yet hard-driving, you shared your love to dances with us and now I am confident I want to continue classes with you.

If you have jive classes please let me know I am definitely in. Your energy, glint in your eyes and passiveness are definitely from the life style you have: dances, music and very enjoyable exercises.

Thanks again Your friend Gulvira

The mood is contagious

 
Carmelite Bar and Grill, Aberdeen

“We have been using Elma & the team for various events we host over the past 18 months. Our 1920’s Prohibition Christmas Parties were a huge success with the dancers just adding that little extra to our evening. Elma was great at getting the audience to participate and we are already coming up with some ideas for this year’s theme!”

Amy & Stephen 27 Sept 2013

Hi Elma

In that short space of time we had, you was able to teach us a few core steps to which we can use in our 1st dance together. Stephen and myself are not dancers but we feel confident with a lot of practice this week we will be able to pull something off. One lesson was really beneficial, because the steps you gave us will enable us to use the whole dance floor and we will definitely not be swaying back and forward! We would highly recommend you our friends and family who are looking for dance lessons, you put us both at ease from the very start. Thank you so much, just wish we had more time with yourself but due to work commitments meant hard to meet.

Amy and Stephen

 
First dance from Alasdair and Zara married September 2013

Elma - We nailed it! It was the best version we had done, everyone loved it. We enjoyed doing it so much on the day, we weren't apprehensive in the slightest, it was a beautiful and well thought out routine. We will send the video over to you ASAP. Thank you.

 
First dance from Gavin and Ola married August 2013

Hi Elma

We had a great day and enjoyed every minute. Our first dance amazed our guests and we receive so many compliments! Thank you so much for your teaching, patience and great ideas, we really couldn’t have done it without you. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone and in fact already have, if you can teach me to dance anything is possible ;-)

Thanks you so much

Gavin and Ola

 
Married Saturday the 29th September 2012

Hello Elma

 

Just wanted to say thank you so much for all the help you have given Chris and I towards our first dance! We managed it on Saturday night in front of over 200! Everyone got a shock and loved it! We enjoyed it too and I even managed it in my big dress.

 

A few people asked if we had lessons and I told them all about you.

 

Thank you so much once again, you are fantastic!

Married on 07 July 2012 - Stavanger Norway

I would like to say a big thank you from myself and Gunn Odny for helping us have a wonderful First Dance experience.  We really appreciate your help and most of all your patience.  Neither of us had any clue how to perform a formal dance in front of 90 guests but after a couple of lessons with you we managed to pull it off without any noticeable slip ups.  It was an amazing experience and we would recommend Elma to anyone who needs help with their first dance.


Regards
Scott Walker

Lots of love Lindsey and Graeme xx

 
Frances Hen Party

Hi Elma

I have attached a few photos of the class you took for my sister Frances' Hen Night. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the lesson, we even practiced "Red Solo Cup" and did it again at her wedding! Thanks so much again for doing this for us, especially for tailoring the lesson to Toby Keith songs which are Frances' favourite! She really enjoyed it and I wouldn't have any hesitation about recommending you for any future hen parties as it is something different and fun!

Thanks again

Kind regards
Gemma Hills

 
Gordon & Nadia’s wedding 17th March 2012

Nadia and I would both like to thank you very much for all your efforts in the run up to wedding and on the day itself.  I was very stressed out about learning a choreographed First Dance.  However you made it fun and were always supportive and encouraging to us.  As for the evening of the wedding itself you managed that with consummate ease; coaching everyone and getting people dancing with just the right balance of warmth and order!  In fact I would say that the most successful part of the evening, based on the comments that I have received, was your section which had just the right mix of ballroom, Scottish and North African dancing.  Great to see my 95 year old father and slightly younger mother still able to show us relative youngsters a thing or two!

Best wishes from Mr & Mrs Angus!

 
Scott & Heather

Hello Elma,

Quick e-mail with a big thank you from Heather and I for all of your assistance in teaching us our first wedding dance.  As you can imagine we got a tremendous reception from everyone watching, they all fell for the Ronan Keating “When you say nothing at all” beginning, lots of shouts from my mates for being a big girls blouse and from Heathers mates for picking such a soppy song, but when the Kings of Leon “Sex on fire” kicked in the place went absolutely nuts!!!  We both totally enjoyed ourselves throughout and the dance only added to what was a brilliant day!
