Hen Party Dance Teacher - Polly in Bristol & Exeter

Hen Party Dance Teacher - Polly in Bristol & Exeter

What are your top 3 favourite Cheerleading Company hen parties in Bristol & Cardiff?

  1. Charleston hen party – it’s cheeky and cheerful and a great opportunity to dress up! The music makes you want to move and bounce around, it's great
  2. Single ladies hen party – Who doesn’t want to be a dance diva!? Shake it like Beyonce
  3. 80’s hen party – This hen party has a bit of everything Footloose, Fame, Michael Jackson, Flashdance and so much more.

What do you like about teaching Cheerleading Company hen parties?

I love our hen parties because they are great fun and everyone is always so happy and enthusiastic.  There’s never a dull moment and the workshop always gives the group something special to remember. I particularly enjoy the teaching side of it as I get to work with lots of different people and everyone has their own style to add. It’s great when a group leave the party really happy and get in contact with The Cheerleading Company afterwards to say what an excellent time they have had and how they re-created the routines on the dance floor later on! It always makes me feel so proud to think that I have been involved in someone’s hen party and given them an experience that the bride will remember it forever.

What types of dance do you enjoy?
I enjoy all types of dance whether I’m learning a new style or perfecting a routine for a show. I gained my teaching qualification at Dance Academy South West where I specialised in Modern/Jazz and Tap so I always love these. But from a performance point to view, I’m always drawn to doing something a bit different & edgy. I have done lots of Burlesque, show girl & can can performances. I’ve also performed in a Charleston troupe and as a result, the Charleston party is my favourite.

Who are your dance inspirations?
I’ve always loved watching MTV, especially pop music videos that make you want to learn routine.  Icons that inspire me include Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kylie and Britney to name a few.  I particularly like music videos that have a story to such as thriller, smooth criminal, baby one more time.

I also enjoy classical dance shows and musicals, from Swan Lake to Hairspray.  The work Matthew Bourne has done with choreographing modern versions of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella are breathtaking as is some contemporary dance from companies like Rambert.

  • Thriller Hen Party Dance Class in Bristol - Jun 2015

    Dear Elena & Cece,
    Just a little note to say a massive thank you for all your help with Rhian's Hen Do this weekend. We all had the best time, Polly was fantastic, she made us laugh but most of all taught us a set of fabulous MJ moves that we continued to try out as we walked back to the hotel!!
    I'd definitely recommend you and we have all said we'd love to do another class!
    Thanks so much

  • Thriller Hen Party Dance Class in Bristol - Jun 2015

    Just a quick message to say thank you so much for organising our amazing thriller dance class last Saturday (6th June) in Bristol. We all had an amazing time, and Helen (the bride) absolutely loved it. I'm sure Michael Jackson was spinning in his grave watching our efforts but we all had a great laugh so it was well worth it. None of us had done anything like this for a hen party before and I think it worked really well because as most of us didn't know one another it was good to have an activity to do because it acted as a bit of an ice-breaker and allowed us to all make fools of ourselves together!
    I also wanted to say that Polly, was fantastic. She was great at explaining what to do to a bunch of novices in what was a relatively short period of time. She was encouraging and made it do-able for those of us on the larger side! so all my anxiety about looking like a fairy elephant was gone with seconds of starting! I will definitely be recommending you to anyone I know who is having a party and I would be happy to write a testimonial for the website if you should need one! Thanks again for all your efforts and for doing such a great job for us.
    Best wishes, Vicky

  • Cheerleading Hen Party Dance Class in Bath - Apr 2015

    Hi Elena
    Just wanted to say a big thank you for our cheerleading on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed it and the routine was continued until 3am. There is talk of it making an appearance at the wedding.
    The hen was so nervous and made to feel quickly at ease. The poem was brilliant at adding a personal touch and the instructions were so clear but fun.
    We will definitely be recommending to all
    Thanks again

  • Bollywood Hen Party in Cardiff - Aug 2013

    I just wanted to say I recently booked with your company for a short notice hen party. I just wanted to say that we were all extremely impressed with how efficiently the event was organised and how you were able to fit us in. In addition, the young girl that taught the bollywood dancing was fantastic! She handled us all very well and we all had a fabulous time.

    Thank you very much.

  • Dirty Dancing hen party in Blackpool - July 2013

    I just wanted to thank Danni for a brilliant time on Saturday at the Dirty Dancing class in Blackpool. The whole group really enjoyed it, particularly Sarah the hen. It was a great icebreaker for the group as there were 20 of us (but made up of 5 small groups). Hopefully we weren't too rowdy a bunch! During our night out some of the moves were re-enacted luckily without any broken bones (but quite a few bruises and aching bodies)! Thanks again
