The Fame hen party really is the chance of a lifetime for all Fame loving brides. Ahem - "Fame! I wanna live forever! I wanna learn how to fly! High!" Now if you were secretly singing along to the Fame song, and we know you were, then the Fame Dance hen party is perfect for your hen do. Imagine the bride wearing flourescent legwarmers, hair in a side ponytail, surrounded by all her lovely hens, dancing away to the Fame sountrack at her own private Fame hen party dance class.
We've created a Fame Dance covering all the best moves and music from the Fame film of the 1980s. We'll drop in at Fame School (as we call it) to perfect our Jazz hands, jazz runs and jazz poses. Then at graduation we'll perform a hen'tastic' group dance routine to 'Fame' which ends with a special finale lift where the bride is the star. It's just you and the girls having a laugh and hopefully by the end of it you'll want to go Dancing on the sidewalk! ; )

Fame Choreographer: Greta
The Fame hen party was one of the first parties we ever created so it's really close to my heart. I love the music from the movie and I love the lycra 80's dancer outfits & I love the dancing and that's what our Fame hen party is all about.
I like to pretend that the hens are the kids from Fame and they have to go to all the different dance classes at the 'New York school of Performing Arts'. We kick off with a a light hearted Ballet class which is hilarious - plies and all. It brings back all those memories of childhood ballet classes - good toes, naughty toes! We then move on to Jazz and have everyone loing lots of Jazz hands and leaping around the room. It always looks great when the hens are in 80's fancy dress and we make sure we take lots of photos at this point. Then it's 'break time' & we reanact the famous 'dancing on the sidewalk' scene from Fame. Expect some comedy retro breakdancing - it's totally rad! I love having little snippets of the different dance styles because it keeps the party moving & makes it more fun. No one wants to spend 2 hours on the same dance so this way we make sure the party doesn't drag. The sections build on each other and there's always something new & exciting to do next.
Then, for the big main routine, a fantastic 80's dance inspired show stopping performance to 'Fame!'. Perfect for the end of term showcase! Everyone knows the song so it makes it much easier to dance to. We use all the moves covered in the first half of the party and put them together to make up the dance. That way, it's not lots of new moves and everyone can pick it up easily & have fun dancing.
And for the grand finale, a spectacular lift on the bride, making her the star of the show! It wouldn't be Fame without a show stopping lift and it's such a great end to the party and a perfect photo opportunity. It's a really nice way to make the bride feel special.

How did you train to become a dancer?
I have always been addicted to dance and attended various dance schools as a child. I had my formal training at MGA Academy of Performing Arts and have qualifications in HND Musical Theatre, RAD Ballet and ISTD Tap and Modern. I specialised in Commercial, Jazz and musical theatre, as well as studying tap and ballet, all of which are perfect for teaching dance hen parties. I have worked with some amazing choreographers including Matt Flint & Wayne Sleep.
Fame Hen Party costume ideas
For a Fame hen party costume I’d go with one of two ideas… Either 80s style so think neon or Fame/Ballet school style and get your tutu out!
For the 80s Fame look the idea really is to throw on as much neon and multi-coloured items as you can. If you have legwarmers, scrunchies, headbands that would be perfect. If you don’t then it’s very easy to find neon items online, in fact ebay is full of them. Of course they are also in places like Claire’s accessories too!
For the Fame Ballet look then be sure to wear a leotard or body. As I mentioned in the Beyonce Costume Ideas, luckily bodies are in high street fashion at the moment so you don't even need to visit a dance shop. High street stores like H&M and TopShop have bodies in right now in a variety of colours and they are not too expensive. I think pale pink or pale blue would be fab! And a pair of dance tights also!
Fame Hair and Make up: I think it’s time for that fuchsia pink lippy! For the Fame hen party costume think bold for your make up. Slap on the bright pink lipstick, pink blusher and go heavy on the eyeliner. Fluorescent colours would be fab as would glitter! Mess your hair up and don’t use the straightners the 80s was about big hair! And, don't forget the side ponytail!
Fame Footwear Ideas: If you have ballet or jazz shoes then they’d be perfect for the fame party! Otherwise bare feet or flat shoes would be absolutely fine.
Hope that helps & can't wait to see your costume photos :)
