A hen party just isn’t a hen party without a dance class – it’s tradition. Not only are they perfect for breaking the ice with a group who may not all know each other, but you can perform the moves on the dance floor after several cocktails (and for many more moons to come). Get a head start on your hen party as Lauren from Last Night of Freedom rounds up the perfect dance classes to celebrate in style…
There’s no better time to celebrate the groovy 70s than on your hen do.
This one is for the hens in white go-go boots, eye-wateringly bright mini dresses and huge hoop earrings, performing a rendition of ‘Waterloo’ to the boys in the club (you can’t take them anywhere…). This 70s class is hugely popular with hen groups, and you can do it up and down the country; from bonny Edinburgh, to lively London, to notorious Newcastle. Well, you are the dancing queen (we’ll stop now).
“I’ve had the time of my life…” and I owe it all to this dance class that you can do all over the UK.

The choreographer will take you through it all, and the bride will lead the performance in the starring role.
Everyone wanted to be in a girl band. Fact.
