We couldn't be happier with the help with our dance that we received from the Gatsby Girls! You were extremely professional yet relaxed, and not only made it fun during rehearsal but also gave us the tools to perform a lovely dance (in our opinion) while navigating a truly MASSIVE dress! :)

Who is in charge of the hens party?

I was asked to be a bridesmaid at my cousins wedding at the same time two others were asked and one was asked to be the MOH. I have just had messages from the MOH detailing every aspect of the Hens Party, she has planned everything and as far as I can tell not asked for any input from any of the rest of us, is this normal? I feel like, as a Bridesmaid I should also have at least been asked for ideas or opinions and not just been told the details like any other guest?!

The Dancing Hen


Oh it can be very tricky! At the end of the day, as long as it in line with what the bride to be would like (and considerate of other people's budgets too!) that is the main thing. It's very easy to overlook this, but it should be the perfect day for her and of course the aim is for it to be a wonderful day for you all.

Even though traditionally the Maid of Honor ends up being the one booking it all in etc, nowadays there tends to be more of a group discussion leading up to decision making to ensure everyone is considered. It's nice to share the tasks and also as a result share the stress!!! 

If you are feeling uncomfortable about this, I think it is worth mentioning earlier rather than later and discuss it openly. They may have thought they were just being helpful and also potentially just over excited by everything, which can easily happen so approach it as tactfully and 'friendly' as possible! They also may be a natural 'leader' so just approach as best you can. 

At the end of the day you all want it to be special, so as long as that focus is maintained it should all work out!!! 

I hope it all works out for you all!


Is it weird to have my bucks night on a thursday night?

All my mates are shiftworkers. Does anyone offer this?

The Dancing Hen

Good morning!

No it's not strange at all - if it suits you and your friends then that's perfect.

We take bookings for dance hen parties on all days and if you would like to discuss any ideas further do just let us know!

Look forwar to hearing from you!


hello do you by any chance do hens nights on a friday night?

The Dancing Hen


Thank you so much for your enquiry!

Yes, we of course can host your hen party on a Friday night and would love to be involved.  Do you have a date in mind?  We have a very select group of teachers and would just have to ensure we aren't booked out on the same date, but more than happy to discuss details and ideas more to ensure you have the best hen party planned!

Regarding location, we can come to you, or we can assist with organising studio hire in a convenient area. 

Look forward to hearing form you, 


Brooks and Baker
