We hired Derek to help us with our first dance for our wedding. We had an upbeat song and wanted to do a dance that would give people something to remember.  The only problem was that neither of us were born with dancing feet. Derek was fantastic to deal with. Although he could see that we needed a lot of work he never said! He was always patient and encouraging and showed great faith in us. The routine he gave us was fantastic and worked a treat. The first dance was a great success and definitely left out guests with something to talk about! Thanks a million Derek.
