HIMANI & SUFIYAAN

JANUARY 2021

Wedding Dance Song:

"Falling Like The Stars" - James Arthur

Venue:

The Glasshouse Sandringham

"When my sister Deesha (ADC's Media Person) suggested that we learn a choreographed dance for our wedding, my now-husband’s nerves clicked in straight away - but we were able to convince him to come and give it a try.

 

From the moment we met our instructor Kimberley James , right up until we performed our dance on the night of our wedding, we felt so comfortable and calm.

 

Our instructor, Kimberley, took the time to understand who we are as a couple and tailored a dance that completely resonated with us. The song meant a lot to the both of us and she absolutely did it justice, through her choreography.

 

ADC went above and beyond to accommodate us. From having Kimberley rehearse us at various different locations, getting her to meet us at our venue to review and practise, to finally bringing her positive spirit to watch us perform the dance itself,  Kimberley did it all.

 

Thank you so much, Kimberley - this experience will forever hold a very special place in our hearts."

Himani - The Bride

Their Story:

Himani and Souf have braved adversity from their families, being of two different religions. Souf's religion doesn't condone dancing, but they decided they would do a wedding dance in spite of this.

 

Their love has overcome many obstacles, and they have brought peace to each other (and to us) across this stormy year. What a privilege to have taught them both.

DIPIKA & JAISHAN LALA

"Let's Stay Together" - Al Green

Our guests totally weren't expecting it and it was the perfect start to the party part of our night.  We can't thank you enough for everything!

It was just so worth it for us to come to you. When we have the video I'll send it across! xx"

2020

Wedding Dance Song:

"Everywhere" - Fleetwood Mac

"It was so amazing! The atmosphere (during the dance) was through the roof!" 

 

Such a cool dance - seriously cannot thank <our instructor> Kimberley enough!!"

-

Via email:

ADC HQ: James and I would just like to say a massive thank you.

I was so impressed with the speed you (Lisa) replied. We had many emails going back of forth - working with a policemen schedule is not the easiest! It was super easy booking in lessons.

(Our instructor) Kimberley was warm and friendly and put our nervous minds at ease. Our lessons were so much fun. It was like a date night for us! Kimberley was encouraging, fun, enthusiastic and just a happy and positive, beautiful lady. Learning our dance was just as fun as doing it at our wedding!
 

On the night, everyone loved it and were cheering and clapping away. Everyone was amazed and thought it was the coolest dance ever!

We will never ever forget our lessons and our wedding…& we were very lucky to just squeak in before all of this Covid19 madness that has shut down the world!

Thank you so much Kimberley for all your time and effort you put into choreographing our dance.

Love Juliana and James

Their Story:

Juliana and James are essential workers - James working as a police officer, and Juliana an early childhood teacher. They managed to skate in right before the first NZ Lockdown Level 4, and blew the roof off their wedding! Now expecting their first child and celebrating their first wedding anniversary - we're so happy for them!

Keenan (The Groom)

"Our photographer was mind blown and said she got some great pics, and my mum was jumping up and down and saying 'yes, yes, yes!' haha She was crazy! My cousin is getting married in 4 weeks and apparently someone went up to her after our dance and told her to elope because we'd set the bar so high with the dance!"

Song: "Tonight" - John Legend

 

-

"ADC helped us with our wedding dance - and we're so glad they did! Our wedding guests went wild and some were in shock as we had kept it a secret until the day! My sister was in tears as she was so amazed and loved it so much! 

We initially weren't sure whether we wanted a choreographed dance or not, and we asked Kimberley at first to show us a simple wedding waltz just so that we didn't look totally left-footed. She guided us through our song choice, we gradually built up some moves and we ended up with an amazing dance that we had no idea we'd have been capable of just a few weeks prior! 

She is a fantastic teacher, really customized the song and dance to our own personalities and we were laughing and having so much fun every lesson. Even if we didn't have a wedding coming up - it was worth it to try something new and really felt we achieved our goal together."

It was a perfect reminder that our hearts only grow with love".
