"We would both like to say thank you very much for your help in preparing an amazing wedding dance for us. You helped make our wedding experience a truly fantastic day and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We couldn't have asked for a better dance teach

"A huge thank you to Jo for teaching us a great routine for our wedding first dance. We really lacked in confidence and had no experience but after a few lessons we felt more confident and were looking forward to our dance on the day. Our friends and family were so surprised when we started to actually dance rather than the usual 'swaying' you normally see with the first wedding dances. They were all very impressed and we had so much fun. We were so pleased that we had the lessons and highly recommend Jo."

'Well what can I say other than a great big THANK YOU from the Mother of the Groom.  Bless my son, who won’t mind me saying that he has always been known to have two left feet and a poor sense of rhythm.  I’m not sure what I expected of his and Laura’s ‘First Dance’ but, safe to say not what we got!!!  Wow!!  We were all just blown away not one dance but two and they not only looked brilliant but Peter was actually enjoying himself.  The reaction from the room speaks for itself – stunned amazement.  What I find even harder to believe is that you achieved that in just 4 lessons in the weeks leading up to the wedding.  Laura’s Bollywood routines with your troupe of dancers just stole my heart.  She looked just amazing, it was so appropriate to the day and there was never a prouder Mother-in-law.  This all  speaks volumes about your skills as a teacher and choreographer and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making such a wonderful day even more memorable.'

'I asked Jo & Danielle to help with a surprise dance for my wedding, and they did not disappoint. Their  dance troupe were amazing in a flashmob routine for our first dance! Everyone loved it. They changed costume mid evening, for a more risqué burlesque dance - even with a fabulous drag queen!!!! Totally fab evening - how do you top that!! Thanks to all involved!!'

After searching endlessly for private wedding dance classes, we found Joze’s School of Dance in Ilkley. As we were both pretty much limited by our dancing abilities, we felt slightly nervous at taking on a choreographed dance routine. However, as soon as we met Jo, we instantly felt at ease, chatting through the types of dance that we might like to do and the type of music we had thought about. Jo is amazingly talented and choreographed us a beautiful routine that was planned for our own abilities and pace, whilst continually giving us the confidence to attempt some more tricky moves. We kept the dance a secret and then performed it perfectly on the day to all our guests who were completely surprised and delighted by our new found dance talent! Jo was an absolute pleasure to work with and we looked forward to our lessons every week, she was flexible on both days and times for the sessions and we weren’t tied into a set number of lessons, so we could just see as the weeks went by, how many more sessions we might need. Jo even edited our song to end perfectly in time with the final move of the dance, then gave it to us by both MP3 and CD (as a backup). I cannot rate Jo highly enough, not just as a qualified professional dancer but as a kind, caring and very patient dance teacher. Thank you so much once again for creating such a fantastic dance for us, you were amazing! 

We had four lessons with Jo for our first dance - it's was so much fun and she was a great teacher! We started with our song choice and explaining what sort of style we wanted and Jo taught us a few basic steps and began to choreograph a routine. Over the course of the remaining lessons we refined everything and worked on a few more difficult bits until everything was perfect! Jo was incredibly patient and had some great ideas. The dance was a huge success and surprise to our guests and really helped kick off the party! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

"Thank you so much Jo for choreographing the most perfect first dance for our wedding. My nana and grandad (keen sequence dancers in their day would have loved it). It was the surprise we wanted for our family and friends. I'm missing the lessons already and cannot stop watching the videos! Delighted with everything and would highly recommend. Many Thanks"

Thank you so much for your expert dance tuition. Our first dance was truly one of our favourite bits of the wedding. We still cannot believe we did it!!! It really made our wedding, so thank you so much for your patience!
