Team Building parties are always my favourite! You walk in and see the people still behave as if they are still in the office. But then, it takes 5 minutes and a bit of music to make them feel at cosy and make them having a great fun!
Line Dancing theme is the best one to make sure everyone is involved and interact with each other; there a re a lots of dances you cnachose from: a simpmy and easy coutnry roytine facing the fron, then you can take thsi aourn the room or you cnamake line swapping and partner changing in a cirlce.
The result is a room full of people laughing and having a great time with each other. Everyone will dance with every collegues in the room and this is what TEAM BUILDING is about! MAke teh whole group feel like a small family!
We achieved exactly this after an hour and a half of Line dancing rouintes with the staff at COTY.com comapny!
It has been one of my fav party so far and each of you just made me laugh deeply.....you all very so friendly and easy to teach to!
Great job guys......yiiiiiiah!

When Daniel and I stepped in the dance studio in Covent Garden in London, to find 20 girls all gear up in their best 50s dresses, we knew we would have had anmazing DANCE PARTY SESSION!
Jen, the bride to be, is having a 50s theme Wedding at the end of October so Hannah - one of the bridesmaids- suggested a Jive Dance sessions for them all....what a choice! A long playlist of boogie woogie, Rock nd Roll and Jive music entertained all the ladies on the dance floor.
Half of them had to be leaders, obvioulsy, and that was a great fun! At the beginning no one wnated to experience being a leaders as it is slighlty more difficult but at the end of the sessiosn they all loved it! We had 9 brilliant couples of women dancing an easy version of Jive on teh best 50s music.
They all learnt several steps and variation, and we linked them together in a lovely routine on the MARTHA REVVES "HEATWAVE" song.
They are going to perfom this fantasttic choreo at the Wedding as soon as Jen and her groom have done their first dance; all the girls will jump on the dance floor and 5,6,7 & 8 everyoen will be dancing on this great track.
Well done ladies and bring back the 50s style!!!! What a fun time and thebest msuic made ever ;-)

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!

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!

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!
