About Us

We are here to take the stress out of your first steps together. 

We understand the stresses of planning a wedding. The venue, the dress, the celebrant and the seating arrangements, just to name a few. We want to make your first steps together as easy as pie... or wedding cake. 

No dance studios, no 12 week schedules and no group lessons. Just you and your partner, in the comfort of your own home, listening to your favourite song and learning how to glide across the dance floor.


Looking for something extra special?

We can teach you an elegant waltz, a sultry latin number or even a hiphop to shock and surprise your guests.

About Our Director

Sophie Mckie 

Sophie Mckie

First steps Bridal Lessons has been created by Sophie Mckie, a renowned dance teacher and choreographer who has been working in the industry for more than 15 years.


Sophie's choreography has won prestigious awards and she has been employed for her expertise in a number of different fields including musical theatre shows, council and government run events as well as hundreds of competition routines. 

After helping out a friend who was in a panic about her first dance Sophie saw the need for a relaxed dance environment in the wedding industry. Soon after she began taking bookings from couples all over the Hunter and First Steps Bridal was born. 

Almost 10 years later, more than 200 Hunter couples have glided through their bridal dance, gracefully and without stress, thanks to her. 

Thanks to Sophie's extensive dance background and comprehensive study both here and abroad she continues to make it easy for couples throughout Newcastle to make those first steps together effortless.
