Dancing at Your Wedding

It wasn’t so long ago that a couple’s first dance as man and wife, as special as it was, was only an effervescent memory – a fact that was no small blessing for couples who happened to be poor dancers.

With the advances in technology it is more common for couples to have a professional videographer record the first dance, and frequently wedding guests have taken it upon themselves to capture the special moment with camera phones. Within a matter of minutes, a wedding dance is shared on social networks like Facebook, and video sharing sites such as YouTube. Prospective brides and grooms who want to give a polished and graceful performance on their big day are increasingly opting to take dance lessons to help prepare for what may be the performance of their lifetimes.

If you are planning to get married, here are a few tips from the experts on learning to dance in preparation for your wedding:

 Wedding programs are designed to help ease the pressure of that “firstdance.”

Tip #1: Don’t wait until the last minute. Remember that your schedule will get very hectic as your wedding day approaches. Dance instructors recommend starting four to six months earlier to allow more time for practice, especially if you are a newcomer to dancing.

Tip #2: Have fun practicing! Planning a wedding can be stressful, but remember that dance lessons can actually be a great stress reliever. Not only is dancing good exercise, but the memories created from learning a new skill are invaluable.

Tip #3: There are no rules. Besides the Waltz and other traditional dances, the Mambo, Salsa, Swing and even the Hustle are all popular at weddings today. Our dance instructors will work with you to create a dance that reflects your personalities.

Tip #4: Make the most of each moment. We want to hear all about your special day (indoors, outdoors, DJ, band, shoes, barefoot, etc.) as these little details will help our wedding dance specialist in creating your dance.

Tip #5: Don’t forget your music! If you have a special song selected for your wedding reception, feel free to bring a recording of it to your dance lessons so you can work on it with your instructor.

Keep your wedding team in the loop! Don’t forget to coordinate with your wedding videographer to the best “coverage” of your special dance.)

Learning to dance for your wedding is a special gift that you and your spouse-to-be can give to each other. Feeling confident and poised when you dance together will ensure that your very first dance as husband and wife will be a memory you will cherish forever.
