Hi Emma, thank you for all your patience and help with our Wedding Dance ! We were both really nervous and you put us at ease ! Our guests loved it

Laura & Matt - November 2016
Hi Emma, The first dance was fantastic thanks and it went really well!
Louise & Darren - September 2016
Apologies for our delayed thank you email - August flew by with us being away on honeymoon - but we wanted to thank you for teaching us the first dance for our wedding day. We received a lot of compliments on the routine and also on our choice of song. Our guests said how much they'd enjoyed watching us; and the band and the photographer both commented that most of the first dances which they'd seen involved the couple shuffling uncomfortably around the dance floor so it was nice to see a proper dance! We decided to do a run through in the room just before our first dance - to ensure that my dress wouldn't get in the way. Our friends and family seemed impressed and, as we'd rehearsed it so many times and had a chance to run through it just before carrying it out, we felt reasonably confident and were smiling and quite relaxed all the way through!
I've attached a few photos which our friends and our photographer took on the day so you can get an idea of how it looked.
Thank you for helping us to make the first dance something which we enjoyed performing and which we received so many compliments for. We had a wonderful day - and thoroughly enjoyed it all!
Melissa and Neal (Mr and Mrs Hughes!) - August 2016
Hi Emma, Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with our dance. It went exactly to plan on Friday and the guests asked for an encore and we had to do it again later in the evening.
Many thanks for your help.
Dean & Nicola - May 2016
I just want to say thank you Emma for teaching myself and my new husband how to dance, we were complete beginners and you taught us steps I didn't think we would manage! We kept the whole thing a surprise until the big day and the hug and wobble technique to the dance shocked the whole room and had everyone cheering and crying! Your personality was great from the start and you didn't let us give up, you are a fantastic dance teacher with the patience of a saint! "
Emma was a fantastic teacher, very patient and polite. Both of us had never danced before but Emma made us feel like pros. The dance went down a storm at the wedding and made most of the guests cry (good cry not bad). Thank you so much for everything.
Deryn & Sam - May 2016

Sonia & Vincent - January 2016
Hi Emma, We did it! It was all perfect except we obviously started in the wrong corner as when we cam to do the last move of curling in I realised the audience were going to be on the wrong side but quick thinking enabled me to curl in from the left to right instead of right to left and nobody was any the wiser, will send you the video when we have it!
Helen & Nigel - December 2015

Yasmin & Joseph - May 2014
Wow... Thank you so much Emma for all your support and guidance in preparing us with our first dance, 'time of your life' from dirty dancing.
We recently got married on 10th may 2014 and my husband thought it would be a fantastic idea to have dance lessons for our first dance. I found Emma through the internet and we both thought she was amazing. We had a few lessons and Emma was able to guide us through each step and then with the music, adapting the moves and dance to us individually. We both struggled at first but Emma made us feel at ease and also emailed us the steps so we were able to practice at home. Emma was always at the other end of the phone and supported us throughout. I would highly recommend Emma to anybody who is considering lessons for their first dance, as our first dance was amazing and had so many positive comments. Thank you once again Emma, xx
Kerry & Philip - May 2014
Emma's dance class was the highlight of the hen weekend. The bride absolutely loved it and it was a brilliant ice breaker for those in the group who didn't know each other. Emma was fantastic.
We left the venue very merry, as well as excited about our night out - and of course the opportunity to show off our newly acquired dance moves! I would strongly recommend it
Lisa - Hen Party - May 2014
Emma was extremely professional and accommodating throughout She went out of her way to make sure we were fully at ease and confident with each step during every lesson. Nothing was too much trouble and we now have an amazing routine that wouldn't have been possible without Emma's expert help Thank you !!!

Amy & Hugh, June 2013
Dancing was Stephens worst nightmare and he was very reluctant to do a dance on our Wedding day for fear of people laughing and making a fool of himself Once I eventually persuaded him to have First Dance lessons, the rest was history It was amazing ! Within the first 10 minutes of our first lesson, as promised, Emma made us feel very relaxed and before we knew it, we were dancing together and it felt so good I actually cried because the joy on Stephens face was priceless !!! Words just can't express what you have given to us Emma Thank you !
Rebecca & Stephen, June 2013
We wanted to learn a simple and stylish routine to start our Married life in style on the dance floor Emma was the perfect choice to help us to do this Within the first few minutes of our first lesson, we felt relaxed and were already dancing together! I had always wanted to learn to dance but was too self conscious We cannot thank Emma enough for her Professionalism and kind nature which made it possible for us to learn a really lovely dance for our Wedding

Lynsey & John, Oct 2012

Thank you very much
Deena & Asaad, Sept 2012
Thanks so much for all of your support and encouragement during each and every lesson. You made the sessions fun and engaging and I can now say that our two left feet have been converted! The routines were well planned and really designed around our personalities! It's been a great experience Thanks :)
Gary & Aron, Aug 2012
We were very anxious about doing our First Dance and didn't want to bore our guests with a shuffle. Emma was highly recommended to us by some friends of ours so we asked her for some help. Both Darren and I were amazed how much Emma successfully taught us and in such a short time too! She made us feel so relaxed and it was just perfect for us with two young children as Emma came to us!!
Clare & Darren, July 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our dance lessons! Emma choreographed a really lovely dance that was well explained We are very much looking forward to showing the dance off at our Wedding.

Emma was extremely professional, kind, efficient as well as a very talented Choreographer. We couldn't believe how much Emma taught us in so little time and with such perfection together with attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble for Emma and without her tuition and tailor made choreography we would have been totally lost! Thank you again a million times for helping us start our married life in style xx

As both of us had two left feet and I am partially disabled , we were really nervous to say the least ... Emma was simply amazing as she was so professional , patient and gave that personal touch that you struggle to find these sets. Our routine was easy to learn and our guests thoroughly enjoyed watching us dance Thank you so much xxx
Mr & Mrs Fellows, March 2011
As a non dancing couple, we were rather apprehensive about our First Dance together as husband & wife Emma made us feel at ease from the first instance The dance that Emma has choreographed is fantastic, exactly what we wanted Hopefully we'll do her proud on the day Thank you so much!

Michelle & Martin, May 2009
Many thanks for all your help, it has been amazing working with you. We were nervous at the thought of our First Dance as we didn't have a clue! After just one lesson with you we felt so at ease & confident, it was great :) We really enjoyed our lessons and had so much fun. Would recommend to anyone getting married. Thanks again
Malissa & Chris, January 2008
Emma was such a fantastic teacher and person that we invited her and her husband to our wedding reception, and it was lovely to see them both there and for Emma to see what she had taught us on the night, although we had only known her for a few weeks.
We had great fun learning our first dance routine and Emma put a lot of effort into it, especially as it was a fast song, we danced to Jai Ho by the Pussycat Dolls - we wanted a bit of an Indian theme to our first dance and Emma had a mixture of moves and routines - it was just fantastic.
All our guests were amazed how we'd learnt such a fantastic dance in such a short space of time - they all loved it.
Thank you Emma for making our first dance so special and memorable.
Indi & Russell Smith December 2007
Hi Emma we just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for helping us make our first dance so special. You made us feel so comfortable and we had so much fun in the lesson with you. Our guests loved our first dance and couldn't believe we learnt it in only 2 hours with you.
It helped kick off our married life in style and you are such a fabulous teacher. Thank you again! No words can express how much we appreciate what you did for us."
Dave and Vicki Wright August 2007
Who would I recommend to help me guide me in my quest to improve my dancing ?
Emma Holding, When I first started salsa from the beginners class, I always watched the advance teacher with his lovely looking assistant Emma, It was Emma who invited me into the next class and the next stage of my learning, I have to admit that I was a bundle of nerves and found it very hard indeed, I also felt I was out of my depth. However I also did not expect so much help and encouragement from such a lovely person.
On several occasions I wanted to give up and often thought about walking out or not even coming back to a lesson, but I was not allowed to give up! I did not take into account that this young lady was not going to let me off that easy, she encouraged me, guided me, and made sure I was okay and feeling comfortable through every class regardless of how hard the lessons were. Emma made me feel very special, she made me feel part of something that was new and strange to me.
That was nearly two years ago, today I am still dancing and enjoying it even more so, I have on numerous occasions danced with Emma and actively watched her dance with others she has been and still is an inspiration to me. Over the two years I have got to know Emma and how she interacts with others, consensus of other's needs, giving everyone whom she comes into contact with a feeling of her own personal skills as a dancer. Emma has always from what I have experienced and seen and listen to many others comments as well on how she gives 100 per cent to all those who are in the throes of learning, who need guidance, encouragement, I have also seen a very caring person.
Emma is a very friendly, outgoing person, one who lights up any room with her personality, her humorous wit, her caring words of encouragement and her spirit for life, the love of dance and music. Emma has many friends and you can see why male and female alike, I am very proud to call Emma a friend who I have learnt to respect and trust.
Martin Russell March 2007
I was privileged to have had such a fantastic salsa teacher. When you are being taught by Emma every lesson feels like a private lesson , she caters to everyone's needs and has the patients of a saint.
There could be 20 people in a class and she will always watch each individual on their skills and abillity and make sure you are progressing the way you should be as well as that she makes it fun to do and great to watch, you can ask her for help at anytime.she will sort out any issues or problems that you may be having.
I think anyone who has ever been in her lessons or classes will say exactly the same.
If you are lucky enough to be a student of hers you will learn to be the very best you can be and you will be taught the right way.
We are all very sad that she has left salsawarwick to continue her Wedding Dance career but she will be an asset to whoever gets her next.
