It doesn't matter if you know how to dance, your first dance as husband and wife is one of the most iconic moments. It brings joy to the family and friends seeing you together on the dance floor as a couple.
At Latin Soul, we create bespoke choreographies for weddings, based not just on the dance level but your style as a couple. So when you hit the dance floor for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. it just feels right, from the songs you pick to the steps we give you.
After searching on the internet we decided to go with Fredy as his studio is close to where we live and because he is Colombian and we knew naturally that he knows how to dance salsa and he is someone we could trust.
This was definitely the best decision we could make, Fredy is a great teacher, very patient and he really understood what we wanted to transmit with the dance. We not only learnt how to dance with the choreography but we also had a great time, we enjoyed, we laughed and we considered this the best therapy to relax during the wedding preparations.
Our family and friends were really impressed with the dance, it was a surprise for them and it was just awesome to see everyone’s reaction, we were really pleased with the result and we would definitely do it again."
"Gabor knows Fredy 7 years now, I only know him for 3 years. We know him from mainly the salsa lessons. We had few Tango lessons as well with him. When we started to organise our wedding we knew straight away that we will ask Fredy if he would be happy to teach us a routine for our first dance. We wanted to do cha-cha- cha, bachata, tango and salsa.
We chose the music which we liked. Fredy cut the music to the choreography, he really knows what he is doing, the music and the dancing is really born with him. Really amazing!
If we didn't like something or we didn't feel comfortable with it he changed it for us what suited us more. He knew us really well and managed to bring out from us the most of it as he could. He asked us to do it again and again the steps or the routine until he wasn't happy what he wanted to bring out from us. We were so happy he came to our wedding to Budapest with his family. We had an amazing time. The first dance was a huge success everyone loved it on our wedding.
Fredy is an incredibly patient, very talented, knowledgeable, always positive and flexible highly professional teacher. We can not recommend Fredy highly enough.
It is a memory we will treasure always as part of our special day. Big thank you to Fredy and to his hard work we could not have done without him"
'This summer my husband Chris and I asked Fredy and Susy help us choreograph our first dance for our July wedding. Neither of us are dancers but we wanted something fun that our guests would remember rather than a more traditional ‘ballroom’ style slow dance.
The guys didn’t disappoint and worked with us to develop two routines (we had two contrasting tracks to dance to) in record time! We had four 2-hour lessons in total, and felt at ease straight away. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend Latin Soul for help with a personalised and special first dance. We can’t thank Susy enough for her patience with us, and for making the lessons so much fun and so relaxed.
We ended up with two routines we’ll remember for a long while and in particular, we were so impressed that she listened to what we wanted and worked with us to ensure we felt comfortable and confident with the choreography, the routines, timing and moves. Susy helped us with the final recording of the track and even did a mini clip for our bridesmaids to get involved with a mini ‘flash mob’ at the end of the routine. We had lots of fun performing on the night, and had many guests complimenting us on the routine afterwards. Hopefully you can see the guests smiling in some of the pics...!
Thanks so much guys, it was a great experience which we would thoroughly recommend!'
"Fredy choreographed the first dance for our wedding and we completed 10 private lessons to perfect the routine. Fredy was able to adapt the Salsa style to our chosen song and we ended up dancing to something that was very unique, which stands out as one of our favourite memories of the day. It was great to have something up our sleeve on the big day but it was also a really enjoyable experience in the run up to the wedding.
Fredy and Susy were both fantastic teachers - very skilled and patient with us - no matter how many times we forgot our steps! We also appreciated how flexible they were in scheduling lessons around the million other things we had to complete for the wedding.
I would highly recommend Latin Soul private lessons - thanks guys!"
"We had a dream; a highly challenging Tango routine for our wedding day performed by two absolutely inexperienced dancers like us! After more than 10 private classes with a highly recommended city teacher and a few unexpected arguments, we were close to abandoning our once in a lifetime dance.
The universe helped us by sending Fredy. This man is the full package. A 10 out of 10 for service with 360 degree support delivered with ethical, professional, safe and passionate commitment.
My adorable husband is such a conservative and shy Englishman and Fredy transformed him into a warm and capable sexy dance partner.
Thank you so much"
