Big Occasion Dance Stag Hen first dance

In September 2012 I started my dance degree at Bath Spa University, however, I got a hip injury from day 1. Somewhere along the way when I turned 14 I started building a habit which in turned lead to me having to have an operation where it was discovered that the ligament was detached from the femur head!

12 weeks to the day of my operation I returned to my second year of uni and then began to rethink my dance career. It was now going to be harder to become a performer so I decided to go down the teaching route.

During this 2nd year I gained 1 of 6 International places to dance with Ombetja Yehinga Organisation (OYO) in Namibia, the countries 1st professional dance company, for the month of August 2014. Whilst on the their dance internship I really discovered my love of teaching and helping others with their dance school.

I returned to my 3rd year, based my dissertation on Namibia and gained a Youth Apprenticeship with B&NES Youth Dance Company (BYDC), learning how to run a youth dance company and developing my teaching skills.

Upon graduating with a 2:1 Honours, I returned to Namibia for the same dance internship. From this I then completed a PGCE PCET in Post Compulsory Education and Training. Sadly the government then pulled Dance from the curriculum and so I made the decision to go Self Employed.

When I first became self employed I did a lot of freelance contracts helping couples with their First Dance and also doing various themed Hen Parties. When I then created CDP Dance, my sister company, I started offering these as well.

In January 2019 I decided to make the First Dance and Hen Parties element their own business and so Big Occasion Dance was formed. I love helping couples creating their unique First Dance whether it’s a few simple moves to get them moving and feel less awkward and anxious or a Hen Party dance class to give the girls some moves for later that night. Our hen parties can also be done for stag parties.

I help you create a First Dance to remember all from the comfort of your own home! With the hen/stag parties you learn a routine to a song/theme/era of your choice. It doesn’t matter if you have two left feet, it’s all about having fun and creating memories that will last.

As well as helping you with your First Dance, I can also help you with other services for your wedding and can recommend venues and other suppliers who would suit your day (if you would like me too of course)

Hiring me means you won’t have the stress of struggling to find that perfect ‘something’ to complete your day as I’ve built relationships with them already and you are welcome to tap into my network if you need to.

I also love hot chocolate, steam trains and Disney ? I often get called Simba because of my curly hair ? I’d love to know yours!
