The big day you’ve waited for all your life has arrived. Vows have been read, rings have been exchanged and a kiss has sealed your commitment to one another. Now, it’s time for the reception! After the DJ announces the bridal party, a hush comes over the crowd. You are formally introduced to your guests and asked to dance your very first dance as husband and wife. As you walk out onto the floor, you realize all eyes are upon you and it’s time to dance! This moment is often met with trepidation. But it’s your time to shine and one of the easiest ways to alleviate any anxiety is to select a song and dance that is sentimental to you and your spouse.
Learning to dance for your wedding creates one of the most perfect memories. It’s really easy and fun and with a little guidance, it can become a lasting moment that you will remember forever! The first step is to find a song that means something to both of you. Listen to music that speaks to you and select a song that you get excited to hear every time it plays. Whether slow or fast, any song can be choreographed to make it look perfect for photos and videos alike. Some couples prefer to dance a slow and romantic waltz, while others choose the dramatic and sharp moves of a Tango.
Dance lessons are a great way to prepare for your big dance floor debut. They not only make for great dates, but they give you confidence on the dance floor and a chance to learn together as a couple.
If possible, prepare 3 to 6 months in advance of your wedding. This allows your instructor time to help you with your song and choreography for the big day. It also gives you plenty of time to practice and make the dance perfect. Private lessons are the easiest way to prepare for the dance. The instructor will guide you step by step and break down each movement so it will be as “easy as walking!” Soon, after a few lessons, you’ll be gliding over the floor with a sparkle in your eyes while you move together on this first important step as a married couple! And remember - the pictures will look fantastic!
