The all-important hen do is coming up fast and the ultimate question is what to do that’s fun and fits all age groups attending.
Of course, the main aim of the Hen party is so you can send the Bride off in style! but it is also about having the maximum amount of fun and girly giggles with your friends and family. Increasingly popular is to have two hen parties! One abroad but still a fun UK one for anyone who wasn’t able to attend. Although I’m sure everyone from the holiday hen will still join in the fun of your UK hen party.
Finding an event that fits around everyone can be very tricky. Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, friends and even some Grandmothers attending can mean they all have differing abilities or needs. A full-on boozy night might prove a little too much for Grandmothers or the older ladies of the group but might be more suited to the younger ones. So, finding something right in the middle to fit everyone and involve everyone is key to a successful Hen party.
We all know life is a little different in 2019 so you may have elder children joining the group, or step children, if it’s your second time around. Including even the youngest adds another tricky element to planning. We offer face painting sessions so even if your younger girls are attending you can still have plenty of entertainment for them.
Here at All steps first dance we have found one of the most perfect ideas that hopefully covers every base.
Gather your Hen’s and discuss one of our 1.5hr or 2hr Dancing hen parties. Choose a theme. This can be absolutely anything you like. From Burlesque, Bollywood, Moulin Rouge, Cheerleading to Take That, Saturday Night Fever, Bhangra, Break Dance or Musical Theatre. Why not go more traditional with styles such as Salsa, Ballroom & Latin and Ballet. Or Contemporary, Jazz, Lindyhop and Charleston.
Or Mix it up with some Spice Girls, Little Mix, Michael Jackson, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s. Fame is super popular. Adding some costumes or leg warmers, neon colours will definitely add some extra special fun to these themes. With the festival season just coming to an end and the festival blues firmly setting in then why not have your own mini festival. Bands such as Oasis and Kings of Leon have some real belters to sing and dance to. We have all been there at the end of the night when Sex on fire comes on and you dance and sing in a circle to your friends, shouting the lyrics at the top of your lungs with hands in the air.
Irish dancing, Beyonce, Dirty Dancing and Pole dancing have become increasingly popular and offer that extra fun, sexy hen element.
Belly Dance and Hula Hooping have jumped up on our list in recent months too.
Not into any of the above? No problems what about an all out fun Disney medley themed Hen? Little Mermaid or Aristocrats being one of our favourites.
Drop us an email with your group size, theme and let us do the rest. We come to a venue of your choice.
This can be anything from a village hall, sports hall, studio, hotel or quite recently we have attended lots more glamping sites. Even if you decide to have your hen at home we can attend. Pop up some pretty fairy lights in the garden, grab a few bottles of bubbles and let our experienced teacher take care of the rest. Glamping has become more popular in recent years. It makes camping seem a little less stressful and just that one touch closer to home comforts. Adding in one of our dance parties could be the ideal hen do experience. Dancing barefoot in fields surrounded by all of your friends and family. What more could a girl want? Other than some bubbles, pink gin and cake! It’s also very convenient to have everything in the same location. So, you can have as much of that bubbly as you want without the fear of who is driving to the next location or home.
Have the best time! have fun, enjoy time with family and friends all in one place.
Our experienced teacher will teach you a full routine to your chosen theme. She will make sure that there are plenty of video and photo evidence to show everyone for years to come. Including any embarrassing moments or epic fails. We all have that one friend who is guaranteed to fall over. Dress up, be silly and laugh lots.
If dancing isn’t really your thing, then check out or pamper parties. We have experienced therapists who offer Facials, Hair and Make up, Massages, Reflexology, Eyebrow threading, Nail art and manicures and hand massages. We can come to any venue you like. What about booking into a hotel for the night, full pamper party session from us followed by a night on the town. Let us do all the hard work, creating that extra special hair and make up whilst you enjoy some drinks and catch ups with the girls. All you have to do is chose a knock out dress and heels. Drop us an email and we can tailor any of our packages to suit your group.
