Dance Lessons for Weddings: Making Your First Dance Shine

The cake has been ordered, the officiant has gone over your ceremony with you, and the mother of the bride has agreed to track down the remaining RSVPs.  Planning a wedding can be a stressful event; for many it’s the first time they’ve planned a party of such size and scope which is daunting under the best of circumstances but even more so when you’re also preparing to give your life away to another person.  While the ceremony is certainly the most significant moment of your wedding day, one of the biggest highlights from your reception is going to be your first dance.  Think about it, this will be the first intimate moment you share with your new spouse as a married couple.

 By taking a few lessons, you can step out onto that floor and dazzle your friends and family with an elegant waltz or a romantic rumba.

Some people have known which song they will dance to their entire life, others find themselves changing their mind every hour.  Regardless of which side of the fence you find yourself on you want your first dance to be special in every way and you’re in luck because many studios offer dance lessons for weddings.  

So exactly what are the benefits of receiving lessons before my wedding?

Get Used to Moving With Your Partner

On your wedding day, you’re going to have on a lot of clothing that you’re not used to wearing that may restrict you in ways you’re not prepared for.  To combat this, it is helpful to get used to dancing with your partner as you will on your wedding day and having someone coach you ensures he is confident in leading and she is comfortable following.

Learn a Specific Style

Sure, it’s perfectly acceptable for a newlywed couple to go into their first dance and sway around the dance floor but why not take this time to show off your new spouse a little.  By taking a few lessons, you can step out onto that floor and dazzle your friends and family with an elegant waltz or a romantic rumba.  If you prefer something a little more snappy why not consider learning the sultry tango or some sizzlin’ salsa steps?

Choreography

Do you want your first dance to tell a story?  Maybe how you and your new spouse met?  Many dance teachers make a living choreographing and performing stories through dance and they’d love to help you do the same.  If you’re the type of person who likes to plan things out, this can be a great way to go into the first dance with confidence that you know what you’re going to do.
