‘Tis the season for weddings! We love everything about weddings, especially how creative some couples are nowadays with their decor, dresses, favours and new traditions. What fun and interesting things did you do at your wedding celebration? If you’re getting married this year, you’ve got to check out this rockin’ Fraser Valley company who is bringing a little fun & funk into the local wedding scene. We wish we’d known about Rockin’ Reception when we’d all been married, because it looks like some serious F-U-N!
Rockin’ Reception is run by Chilliwack’s Shelley Wojcik, who offers original wedding dance choreography for your wedding reception. Imagine a soft, romantic melody beginning as the newly hitched couple take to the dance floor… and suddenly the music changes into something wild, fun, crazy! Similar to this internet video sensation, couples create a unique dance to add something memorable to their wedding day. Hip hop, line dancing, ballroom – whatever style suits you, Shelley will accommodate. This is not just for brides and grooms either – Shelley is used to choreographing groups of folks… so get your whole bridal party involved! Dance sessions take place at the CSOPA studio or if you have space for dancing and can provide a sound system, Shelley will come to you (Hope to Vancouver).
FVP’s Editor, Kristi, visited Shelley at CSOPA and had a little lesson… such fun!
Shelley works as a dance instructor and choreographer at the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts (CSOPA). Over the past six years, Shelley has been responsible for choreographing main stage productions such as Willy Wonka, Once Upon a Mattress, Beauty and the Beast, Guys and Dolls and many more. With a Theatre Arts Diploma from UFV, dance training in jazz, ballet, tap, contemporary and ballroom, teaching children and adults, Shelley’s creativity will certainly add a special something to your wedding day!
If you’re planning a wedding, we think you should call Rockin’ Reception. Plan something extraordinary and memorable for yourselves and your guests.
