Just what we wanted!! Thank you so much. Everyone had the best night.
Five out of five.
I cannot praise Alicia and Felix enough, they were excellent. They danced beautifully and totally engaged with our guests, they got even the most reluctant guests to get dancing! They and the band absolutely made the evening! Thanks very much to them!
Absolutely fantastic - guests loved them and will definitely want you guys back!
They were brilliant, they were a great addition to the night.
Alexis and Michaela were great! I will definitely recommend them. Many thanks, Amanda
Thanks once again, The Vintage Dancers were simply great. From helping me with decorations, getting chairs to teach dance steps and keeping a 12 yr old happy. They involved the kids and all of us had fabulous time - the parents loved it too. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you, Regards Farrukh.
The Vintage Dancers were an extra treat for my 1920s themed party and worked well with the band 52 Skidoo. They arrived promptly and were eager to get going with their routine, encouraging us all to get up and have a go. They have lots of different steps to copy and were willing to help teach us some of the moves throughout the evening. They looked amazing, we're very friendly and easy to talk to, and helped my party go with a real swing. Throughout the whole booking process, starting with Warble Entertainment (thank you Samantha McGowan) it has been easy to make final arrangements directly with the girls prior to the evening via e-mail and mobile phone. We had a brilliant night girls, thank you again, Claire Clubley, Reading
Great energetic performance which certainly got the party started. The group were in touch straight away and put great care into meeting our requirements.
Velody was absolutely fantastic! She had everybody dancing, laughing and enjoying themselves. Everybody commented on how brilliant she was. She really got involved with the whole party. Thank you for a fantastic evening :)
We wanted something a little different for our wedding. A few friends have had bands but I love dancers - the process was easy. Warble Entertainment were very helpful and when emailing with questions came back to me as soon as they could. The dancers were in contact with us a week or so before the wedding and on the day the entertainment they provided was wonderful - they danced for all to watch and then quite a few guests stood up and they taught them some moves. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, and I think it will always be a wonderful memory from our day! So many people have complimented the dancers, and our day - thank you!
Thank you so much for an amazing evening! The Vintage Dancers were fabulous! We had a great Gatsby evening, our guests range from 6 - 65 and they really got everyone up and dancing. I would highly recommend the Vintage dancers!
Fantastic lady really knew her stuff, lovely personality, had everyone up dancing and taught them the moves.
I received fantastic feedback for the vintage dancers, they adapted to the different environments incredibly well and everybody loved them… when it came to securing an act the process was very quick. Many thanks for your help.

Q. What dance styles do you perform and how long are performances?
A. We perform: 1920's Charleston, Vintage Tap (Fred Astaire, Top Hat & Tails style), Plus Swing, Jitterbug, Jive, Rock & Roll. Standard performances are from 1 cabaret number up to 20 minutes including costume change where required. Longer, tailor made shows are available upon request.
Q. How do we know we are getting the same standard of performers if the troupe is made up from different dancers depending on the area?
A. The troupe leader has worked with and hand selected every single troupe member. She only selects the very best dancers in your area, this saves on long transport costs and logistics. Rather than bringing people from London to Aberdeen or from Aberystwyth to Glasgow, she will aim to book you dancers within a maximum of 90 minute commute, making everyone's lives easier.
Q. If we want the dancers featured in the videos, can we still book these given the above?
A. Yes. Subject to covering the additional travel / accommodations costs, you can book the featured dancers of your choice, calendar / schedules permitting.
Q. Can the dancers be available for meet and greet in costume to set the vintage era ambiance?
A. Yes, all dancers are available for meet & greet and can even serve trays of drinks and pose for pictures with guests.
Q. We like vintage music & clothes but don't know how to dance - can you help?
A: Yes! We can teach a fun & accessible taster class for you & your guests.You can even book a private class beforehand to brush up your own dancing - to wow your guests even more!
Q. We've booked an awesome swing / rock & roll band for our event, but we're not sure if people will get up and dance - can you help?
Yes! The taster classes are easily accessible. They will give you & your guests the confidence to make the best of the live band/DJ whether 20's, swing or rock & roll.
Q. Our guests already dance so we don't need a dance lesson - what wow factor would you bring?
We can provide show stopping cabaret with 2 - 12 dancers in full authentic showgirl / 'vintage gent' attire.
Q. Do you provide music before / after the band?
All our dancers are professional instructors with large collections of Swing music so you can book them to DJ as an optional addition.

A. We provide standard troupes of a minimum of 2 dancers, maximum of 12.
- 1920's standard package = 2 Flapper girls. Optional Gatsby Gent.

- Additonal 'taxi' dancers are available.
Q. What is a taxi dancer?
A. A taxi dancer is someone who knows how to dance and will dance with your guests, contuinuing to help and show them the ropes throughout the evening - not everyone grasps everything in class so these guys keep the dancefloor busy and super-friendly all night.
- 2 Flapper Girls or 1 Couple perform 2 x 3 minute cabaret routines plus (approx) 30 minute dance taster class plus dancing whilst band plays.
