I had the pleasure of teaching a funky street dance hen party this Saturday for the bride to be Imy.

She and 10 of her friends came to The Dance Station in Brighton for a Justin Timberlake themed two hour session hen party,where they learnt a routine to 'Rock Your Body'. Uh sexy ladiesssss! 

The ladies enjoyed it so much that they said they are going to dance it at the wedding!

So we practised it as a flashmob ready for the big day in September!

Good luck Imy and co, hope to see the evidence on YouTube!

Surprising your husband to be!

This is what happens when ZooRiot team up with Katherine to work on a "flashmob suprise" for the future husband to be!

We turned a fantastic and fun dance hen party in a rehearsals space as we wanted to make a special perfomace for the groom at their wedding.

Katherine has chosen LOVE IS EASY as a song to perfom as she knew it was her sister's fav track for this special occasion.

Family and friends gathered together to make this happen and they even brought props to use  (from umbrellas, to LOVE signs etc)

We kidn of re-created the athmosphere of the original video and everyone did brilliantly. It was such a great hen party!

They will perform this on the Big Day and the groom doesn't have a clue of what he is going to experience! Great! 

Looking forward to watching the final video ladies.....well done! 


Lovely lassoing ladies!

A great gaggle of girls arrived at the Charlbury village hall to kick off Gemma's countryside hen weekend with a line dancing party.

We started off with a fun game of flirty cowgirl, switching partners between each dance and causing a lot of confusion but also plenty of laughter. Then we got our grapevine on, learning the Electric slide line dance, which the girls picked up in no time so we added in extra claps, turning grapevines and yee-hahs to give them more of a challenge. A quick break as it was rather warm before learning the Western Barn Dance, first just in pairs, concentrating on the tricky sequence of steps as you tap feet with your partner whilst walking, before attempting the same moves in a circle, swapping partners at the end of each repetition. This worked a treat and we danced to the end of the Shania Twain song with lots of giggles and very few mistakes. Then we cranked it up a notch, spinning each other round and round as we stripped-the-willow to 'Cotton Eye Joe' remembering to give your right elbow to your partner, your left elbow to the dancers down the line - whilst also trying to r emember if you were a man or a woman (determining which line you went down). Another quick break as it was getting rather hot by this time. Then it was time to learn a full routine to 'save a horse, ride a cowboy' incorporating our line dance and stripping the willow moves, channeling Madonna and getting our Gangnam style galloping on. We brought together the whole song complete with intro, instrumental and end pose in no time!

To finish off we added a new dance to my repertoire 'Payaso de rodeo' a Mexican marathon of a line dance which goes from slow steps to quick gallops and was a real workout. Hopefully Gemma didn't quite twig that this was part of her surprise Mexican theme which will be revealed later.

There was just time to film our favourite routine, the Western Barn dance, and lift our hen for a group photo.

The ladies certainly earnt their cold drinks at the beer festival with all that dancing!

When you hear SINGLE LADIES HEN PARTY you know for sure you cannot go wrong.....fun is on your way!

Teaching "Single Ladies" was a LOT of FUN as the girls were all lovely! I had a group of faboulus 5 girls who threw themselves

in the studio and went full on for the whole session. 5,6,7 & 8...put the ring on it!

They were wearing funky super girls leggings and black top....Cool and super DANCE SEXY gear!  ;- )

We did a quick dance warm up, I gave them some basic jazz step to get into the mood and we start doing the original choreo.

I did simplyfied a few moves but they mastered the routine very well!

We took soo many fun pictures and we laughed the whole way through!

I hope they will perform a flashmob Single ladies routine on her wedding day as promised ;)

All the best ladies....and someone is NOT GOING TO BE SINGLE LADY ANY MORE! :-) x

Shake it off...here again!

On Saturday 8th April 2017 the sun was shining brightly in Cambridge for Steph’s Hen Weekend. An incredibly cheerful group of Hens arrived at Bodywork Company Dance Studios ready to strut their stuff for ninety minutes and boy did they boogie!!

I’d already been told that Steph and Si’s favourite song was “Shake it off” by Taylor Swift and couldn’t have been happier to choreograph a routine for the Hen’s! I later found out that the routine would be performed at the wedding and they wanted to include Si in too, what a bonus!!

All of the Hens were so full of energy and really raring to go. The atmosphere was buzzing, everyone got involved and worked so hard on the routine, it looked awesome by the time we’d finished. We even added in the section where Steph would go and grab Si to join in. They planned to freestyle in the middle of the circle formed by the hens at the bridge of the song (My ex-man brought his new girlfriend She's like, “oh my God” etc etc. I could really imagine the two of them having a really good time dancing to the song in the middle of the circle).

The finished product was absolutely brilliant and I’m looking forward to seeing a recording of the routine on the big day itself!

Wishing Steph and Si lots of love, health, wealth and happiness for the future and enjoy the big day in June!
