MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CITY DANCE PARTIES!
Our 2017 Highlights….
Merry Christmas from City Dance Parties! After our launch in January, it’s the end of our first year boogieing around the UK, and wow, what a year it’s been. Over this year we’ve had over a thousand dancers boogieing at our dance parties, as far and wide as Inverness, London, and Dublin, and we’ve loved every minute of it! We’re finishing the year with nearly 60 5* reviews on Facebook from some seriously happy dancers, and a 5* rating on google reviews and Trustpilot!
To celebrate the end of the year, we thought we’d compile a few highlights we’ve had in 2017 – we’ve had some fabulous parties, and would love to share some of our favourite things with you!
1. FANCY DRESS FAB:
There’s nothing quite like getting into the spirit of things with a cheeky bit of fancy dress. Whether you fancy embracing a bit of vintage, by getting flapper fantastic on a Roaring 20’s Hen Party, getting into the 80’s vibe with some neon and legwarmers, or even donning a basque, suspenders and a feather boa to get flirty with a Burlesque Masterclass.
Our 2017 Fancy Dress Highlights…..
We LOVE this group in Liverpool back in August, who dressed their bride up in a wig and leather jacket to be the Danny Zucko to their Pink Ladies!
Roaring 20’s is a dreamy class for a bit of fancy dress, and this group absolutely NAILED IT. This snap could be taken straight out of the 20’s!
Our final favourite fancy dress of 2018 has to be this Brighton bride, who’s bridesmaids donned her in full MJ Gear AND wig! #thrillerdance
2 The rise of the ‘Sten’. ‘
Sten’ Parties (where the bride and groom have a joint ‘last night of freedom’), are becoming increasingly popular, and we have to say, we think they’re a ball….bring on some more in 2018!
Our 2018 ‘Sten’ Highlight: We LOVED throwing a surprise Beyonce Dance class for Will back in June, after his female gal pals decided they wanted to throw him a ‘Sten’ so they could join in the fun. We especially love the leotards….excellent touch!
3. Creative Maid Of Honour’s
If you’re in charge of organising your best mate an unforgettable night of freedom, you want it to be something special, and some Maid Of Honours went above and beyond to make sure they gave their ‘bride’ a dance class that was truly individual to them, and one they’d never forget! We are always up for taking some crazy requests, whether it be songs, or styles, and love tailoring a party that’s perfect for the occasion!
Our Creative Highlights: This group of London Dancer’s couldn’t decide which the bride would prefer….Bollywood or Beyonce….so they combined them both for an unforgettable Bolly/Beyonce Megamix class!
In August, Sarah surprised Dee with a line Dancing Class, as they used to Line Dance together, but tailored the class to feature specific songs that Dee loved. Were they Country/Western in the least? NO! Did it matter? Not one bit. We had some Elton John, Cher, Elvis, and even a 1920’s ‘Bunny Hop’ in there. It was a fantastic class, and the look on Dee’s Face was priceless.
4. Spreading our wings:
We’ve loved getting to know others in the ‘Wedding Biz’ throughout 2018, and are thilled to have worked with Stag and Hen Newcastle, Orchid City and Spa, The Stag and Hen Experience, as well as having written articles for Wedding Ideas Magazine, Love Our Wedding, and Worldwide Party Company ‘Party with a Local’.
The final class of 2018 was one of our favourites – a french family of 6 visiting London for the weekend, who fancied learning a bit of Irish Dance on their trip to London! We had an absolute blast running a class at Pineapple Dance Studios for this lovely bunch, and was such a brilliantly different class to end the year on!
We’ve had such a fantastic 2017, and want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that’s boogied down with us this year – especially our fantastic teachers all across the country. From the bottom of our hearts we wish you a very merry Christmas, and a happy new year!
Here’s to 2018…..we can’t wait!
