Hebridean hen and stag parties are being taken to another level, thanks to the launch this week of a new dancing venture – ‘Hitched and Highlands’.
Run by professional dancer Alexandra Jones and Anna Macaulay, Hitched and Highlands offer bespoke dancing packages for clients – so for instance, if a hen party wanted to recreate scenes from ‘Grease’, Alexandra and Anna will provide a tailor-made routine.
Alexandra told www.welovestornoway.com: “Dancing sessions are becoming more and more popular with hen and stag do’s all over the country.
“At Hitched and Highlands, we can offer a one-off dance class, a specific routine, various unique packages.
“The options are endless.”
Clients can choose a song or a theme, and Alexandra and Anna will put them through their paces for what is normally a three-hour session.
Package deals include balloons, bunting, and goodie boxes filled with a huge selection of island-based products – not to mention that staple of the Hebridean hen-do – Prosecco!
And to seal the day for posterity, Hitched and Highlands have teamed up with Wee Studio, who can offer professional footage of the event – from start to finish.
“It’s all about having fun,” said Alexandra.
Hitched and Highlands events are based in Stornoway, but Alexandra and Anna are willing to travel anywhere in Lewis and Harris, if that is what is requested.
And Alexandra is keen to stress that stags are being targeted just as much as hens!
“Nowadays a lot of brides and grooms do dancing lessons before the big day, and then surprise the guests with their moves on the day itself,” she said.
“It’s for both women and men.”
Alexandra will be giving a free taster session at this year’s Cancer Research Ladies Lunch at the Cabarfeidh Hotel on Saturday May 9.
