My mission is to deliver an incredibly personal service to all my clients, creating something unique and exclusive for everyone I work with in a happy and relaxed environment.  To choreograph a dance that best encapsulates your concept, your personalities and the essence of your vision enabling you to feel confident and excited about your special dance, making it a most memorable shared life event.


I am extremely proud of the feedback I receive from couples I have worked with.  The most common phrases are: 


* “It made our day so much more special”

* “The applause and the cheering was deafening”

* “I’m so glad we did it”

* “Thank you for your patience” 

* “You created the perfect dance for us”

So, the big questions is..........what dance will you choose?


* A romantic dance for the two of you?

* A Father and Daughter dance?

* A Mother and Groom dance?

* The bride or groom and their crew?

* A dance off between the girls and the boys?

* A flash mob?


The choice is yours!

Below is a video of a Flash Mob The Dance Shed produced especially for the Plymouth Pavilions Wedding Show 2016.  It is an example of something you could have at your wedding that involves all age groups, all abilities, some romance, some comedy and a lot of fun.  In fact, it has something for everyone!


"From our first meeting you were truly lovely, kind and listening to our ideas.  You went away to choreograph the most amazing dance routine ever and you worked so well with everyone - it was truly brilliant, all the guests and many who have seen it are astounded at how professional it was.

It was truly the highlight of the wedding!  What an amazing atmosphere to start the evening's entertainment, to have 400 guests clapping and cheering throughout the dance.  We still talk about it today as do everyone we see who were there.  Many thanks for an experience none of us will ever forget"

"Melissa provided an excellent service in choreographing, instructing and rehearsing our first dance at our wedding!  With a rather optimistic plan in mind, we discussed with her how we might go about putting on a fun but polished performance which would have elements simple enough to incorporate some of our friends in a 'Flash Mob'. All this was quite a tall order and I'm pleaesd to say that Melissa's creation ticked all the boxes, plus her gentle and considered tuition took me, particularly, from someone who has never been able to grasp dancing to the delivery of a confident and enjoyable performance....she was brills!

"From the first moment we met Melissa we knew we had chosen the right person to choreograph our wedding dance.

She is professional, very imaginative and great fun to work with.

We had 3 rehearsals with Melissa and then practiced at home on our own resulting in a unique and extremely entertaining and successful performance, which nobody had ever seen before.

We loved every minute of our wedding dance, it was so special.

Thank you so much Melissa xx"

"My husband and I were keen to do a memorable wedding dance to our favourite song, a chart song at the time from when we first met. Neither of us could ever be described as 'dancers' and yet Melissa choreographed a simple yet very impressive routine that we quickly learned and gained confidence in performing due to her clear and helpful direction. Brilliant fun, thoroughly enjoyable and we and our guests loved it! I would highly recommend using Melissa to help add that individual touch to your special day."
