Simply Amazing

Going with Captiv8 was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding process. Oya and Ed are incredibly experienced dancers who will simplify and make it easy for even the most extreme of a novice (like me!). No previous dance experience required as they will take it right from the beginning with you and work with you at a speed you’re comfortable with. Most importantly they understand that wedding planning is stressful and work flexibly with you on your dance to suit your needs. They’re also extremely nice people and put you at ease throughout. Cannot recommend them enough. THANK YOU 🥰

Exceptional Wedding Dance Choreography by Ed and Oya

Ed and Oya provided exceptional wedding dance choreography that exceeded all expectations. Their professionalism and patience were truly remarkable, especially considering we had no prior dancing experience. The 5 weeks of personalised lessons made learning enjoyable, and Ed and Oya's positive encouragement created a comfortable environment. On our wedding day, everyone was astonished by the flawless performance, setting the perfect tone for the evening. We are immensely grateful for Ed and Oya's expertise, making our first dance a cherished memory.

Oya and Ed were a joy to learn from!

We hired Oya and Ed to help us learn to dance/create a choreographed routine for our wedding day. They were so delightful from the start and really passionate about dancing. They're also hilarious and such good fun. My husband and I looked forward to every dance session, even if the idea of the first dance absolutely terrified us!

Oya and Ed constantly checked in with us on how we were feeling about the choreography and made sure we felt comfortable (i.e., no dance moves we felt silly performing in front of our loved ones!). They were also incredibly thorough - they asked about my dress and how I could move in it, whether we were having a live band or playing a recorded version of the song - details we never thought about but it made all the difference on the day.

We received so many compliments on our first dance - everyone loved it. My parents said that it was their second favourite memory of the day (after seeing me dressed as a bride!) - it was all down to Oya and Ed!

Great Teachers. Highly Recommended

Oya and Ed are fantastic teachers who taught us our first dance. They were very patient and created for us a unique choreography that was adjusted to our personal needs and preferences. They are also very flexible in terms of time slots and very easy to communicate. They explain and show everything very clearly. Our guests were absolutely amazed by our dance. Everything went well as we were so well prepared! Highly recommended. The best first dance teachers in the UK!

Fun and talented dance techers

Dance lessons turned out to be our favourite part of wedding planning! And that's largely because Ed & Oya are such great teachers, and they keep it fun the whole time you are learning! We are so happy with the routine they put together for us! We were very useless dancers to begin with, but after five lessons, we had an amazing routine which also included and some dips and 2 lifts!! Something I thought I'd be no chance at!
I can't recommend enough doing some dance lessons for your first wedding dance, and Ed & Oya are without question, the best people to use! Thank you both so much!

We're so good after a few lessons

We are having private classes for our first dance with Oya and Ed. Despite having no rhythm and both of us having 4 left feet, we can honestly say that after the third class we no longer look like drunk robots and can probably hold our own during a social dance. These two are amazing, their lighthearted approch make it so much fun and easy to learn how to dance.

THE best dance teachers!!

I can't praise Oya and Ed enough. Truly a wonderful couple who will make you feel at ease (whatever your dancing ability!) We had 5 classes with them and they choreographed a beautiful dance for our first dance at our wedding. Every lesson was an absolute delight. We had so much fun and it was honestly one of our highlights of planning a wedding. Thank you again Oya & Ed!!! Xx

Professional, fun and personal

Oya and Ed are honestly the best teachers - better than we could have imagined especially since the dances are so personalized and tailored to our preferences and their professional opinions! We’ve learned two different wedding dances with them - different styles as they tailored it while we were listening to the music together. It’s unique to have someone teach you options on the go and make the choreo based on our abilities as well. They’ve managed to turn my husband into a now confident dancer who was super critical and nervous at the start. The fact that they taught technique first and not focused on just learning steps is what changed it all for him/us.

Trusted both so much that Oya also went out of her way to find me the right teachers in her network that helped me create two group dances and a surprise dance for my husband. Loved the fact that they were honest when they felt someone else could do a better job then they could based on the style I wanted (pop-py, feminine etc.) but still offered to teach me if I was more comfortable with them. Oya also came along to my other teaching lesson when she could to ensure my experience was still good and expectations met.

I’m a huge advocate of theirs - and am actually going back this week with my friends to have a private hen do dance lesson to learn salsa.

Highly recommend

Our dream of a western-Indian fusion wedding dance wouldn't have been possible without Oya and Ed! From the moment we stepped into the Soho studio, a hidden gem amidst the bustling streets, we knew they were the perfect match for our unique vision. Their infectious energy and creative genius transformed us from two-left-footers into confident dancers. We learned more than just a routine; we learned the fundamentals of dance, which gave us the tools to shine on our big day. And the best part? We didn't stop there! Oya and Ed became our post-wedding dance mentors, guiding us through salsa and bachata. If you're looking for more than just a wedding dance lesson, if you crave a fun, inspiring, and truly unforgettable experience in the heart of Soho, look no further than these two! Thank you, Oya and Ed, for making our wedding dance (and our dance journey!) an absolute blast!

Wedding dance and salsa classes

Oya and Ed are incredible dancing instructors! We found them just before our wedding and had six sessions that transformed us from beginners to confident dancers. Their teaching style is fun and engaging, so much so that we continued with salsa classes after our wedding. They've created unforgettable memories for us beyond just a wedding dance. Thank you, Oya&Ed, for making our journey so memorable

It was an amazing experience to prepare our first dance with Captiv8 Dance. 💃🏻 We decided to go with tango and our dance was a cherry on the wedding pie that night!
