John Murray Dance Studio specializes in social Ballroom, Latin American and wedding dance choreography. We work with wedding couples on a daily basis and choreograph your opening dance to your special music, making it as easy or fancy as you like with exciting variations to blow your audience away! The opening dance is custom designed to suit each couple. We also cover the important table to dance floor procedures that every wedding couple should know, how to present the bride, as well as father-daughter and mother-son dances or the entire wedding retinue.

Your private lessons can be booked with one of our friendly instructors at a suitable time for you between Monday and Friday 13h00 to 21h00. We recommend starting early, it takes longer than people think. Our 10-hour package is the most popular wedding dance option. We want you to feel comfortable dancing your steps and look awesome on the dance floor, which takes a little time to round off and perfect. We also recommend learning one or two of the other fun social dances to enjoy during the rest of the evening.
Your dance journey with us is a fun and rewarding process, spending quality time together as a couple and building memories to last a lifetime!

The studio is welcoming and modern with friendly teachers and all amenities. There is also a dance shop to purchase wedding dance shoes and dance attire for ladies and gents. Located at Somerset Mall, Somerset West with 24/7 secure parking. Click here to see more.

We went to dance classes for our wedding. A beautiful routine was worked out for us to our song of choice. Our instructor, Charmaine, was very professional yet casual and made us feel relaxed and confident with a 3-minute routine, within 6 lessons. All their instructors are filled with passion and enthusiasm which is visible from the moment you walk in. We even learned a different dancing style to expand our repertoire for our wedding evening. I would highly recommend John Murray Dance Studio for anyone wanting to learn how to dance in general or for a specific event. – Carl du Plessis


They say the cello is the most moving instrument in the world. Following in the footsteps of Prince Harry and Princess Meghan, cello has become a top choice for weddings. South Africa’s leading electric cellist Carol Thorns takes this instrument to new heights. Her worldwide performances include opening for Vanessa Mae, performing for J Lo and sharing a stage with John Legend.

Carol’s solo album Fireflies in The Rain was nominated for a South African Music Award for Best Instrumental Album and her show Red Cello Electrified was awarded a 4 out of 5 star rating at the biggest Arts Festival in the world, The Edinburgh Fringe.

Through her company Red Cello, Carol has created a series of extraordinary electric string concepts and collaborations that are now popular across the globe: The Bubble (Giant Inflatable Sphere), The Galaxy Dress (LED Dress), CODA Africa (Afro-Fusion band) and Rosanthorn Trio (All-girl electric string trio). These magnificent Red Cello acts have featured at international celebrity weddings but are equally fitting for intimate lockdown events (for only 4 people). Click here to see more.

A huge thank you for creating the perfect atmosphere at the beginning of what was a spectacular evening. It is always such a pleasure to work with you – Edith Venter
