2. Belly Dance
Originating hundreds of years ago, this Arabic dance style is perhaps one of the oldest forms in the world and is still going strong today. As seen across TV, film and theatre, it’d be a huge shame if you didn’t give it a go yourselves! This expressionist dance is very distinct, exotic and has you flaunting your bellies in a way no other routine ever could. Master some complex abdomen movements with the assistance of a friendly dance tutor and maybe even dress for the part too by wearing Arabic inspired clothing that reveal your bellies to add that little extra impressiveness to the party.
The powerful, iconic and most certainly colourful Hindi world of cinema always deliver on their dance scenes and that’s why you shouldn’t give it a miss. Straying far away from your usual dancing at the local club, Bollywood introduces powerful and expressive routines that has put Indian cinema on the map in recent times due to its sheer magnificence. From the colourful dresses and jewellery to the drama and footwork, it’s a dance style aimed to impress. You’ll learn everything from mudras and hastas hand movements to the iconic ‘pigeon-head’ neck movements before qualifying as a master of this traditional dance style.
Another iconic dance from a different era and part of the world is the famous Charleston. Delve into the spotlight and show off some cheeky moves inspired by 1920s theatre. It’s mainly characterized with toes-in and heels-out twisting steps accompanied by knee movements, making it all about the legs. Talking of legs, it’s time to get yours out and show them to the world as you dress yourselves as prohibition era ladies with short sparkly dresses and headbands.
5. Rock 'N Roll
If you don’t want to delve into the past as much, then there’s nothing wrong with poking your heels into the world of rock n’ roll! We’re talking about legends such as Queen and Guns N’ Roses who each have their iconic hits that took the 20th century by storm and are just as huge today. There’s nothing as head banging and ‘in-your-face’ as this so if loud guitar riffs and reverbed drums are your thing then look no further than learning a specialised routine to one of the old greats from the 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s. See our Rock n Roll dance party here.
Enter the world of Cuban ballrooms and discover the secrets behind the distinctive Salsa dance for your hen party. This jazz infused 60s style is both lively and exnihilating and is the only dance style on the list to include partners. Take your partner in crime and join hands as you glide up and down the studio learning this exotic Latin-American style. For the best effect, try wearing a long red dress if you have one to really immerse yourselves into this theme. Get set to feel the sexy energy ladies!
7. Spice Girls

For this, it’s a necessity to dress up as your favourite Spice Girl members and go all out striking the Union Flag as you learn all the moves and grooves.
