Your wedding will be one of the most memorable days of your life! When you look back at your special day, how do you want to remember it, in particular, your first dance!? Most couples awkwardly sway side to side, hoping their song will end as soon as possible. They want to get the first dance over with quickly and wash it way with a couple of drinks. But a few lessons with us will completely change that story! Every couple who takes lessons with us will walk on the dance floor knowing exactly what to expect. You will be prepared how and where to walk on, when to start the dance, what moves go with your song, and how to pose or dip to get great photos. You will have the confidence to know what to do so you can truly enjoy your first dance! We begin the process by learning your vision. We have taught couples who just want to get by with a few basic steps, some couples want to impress their guests with extra twists and turns, and some learn a full-blown choreography that knocks the socks off of everyone in the room. Whichever vision you have, or song that you choose, we will guide you to a first dance you will look back on and cherish.

Dance Tips

As the wedding day draws near, your schedule usually gets more hectic. We recommend starting the dance at least 3 to 6 months before. That way you have plenty of time to put your dance together without the stress of a deadline. Even if the wedding is around the corner, don’t worry. We will work with whatever time you have and make sure you have a nice dance.
On our first lesson, we will start teaching you to the song that you have chosen. If you don’t have one, check out our Spotify Playlist to see if there are any songs you like. If you don’t find one, then we can give you a few more recommendations.
Dancing is a tradition at weddings. Most people think that they need to dance to the entire song that they have chosen. But being out there for 4 minutes, swaying back and forth can feel like an eternity and you just want it to be done. We recommend dancing 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes. It is long enough to do something nice and memorable, and short enough so it doesn’t leave anyone bored or you stressed.
When learning a new skill, it is best to let your teacher do the instructing. They will see what is happening and can give you best tips/advice on how to improve your dancing. If you have any questions, ask your instructor. That way you both will enjoy the learning experience.
It is a popular saying, “Practice like you play.” We recommend to wear shoes similar to the ones you will wear during your dance. This is important because you will learn what it feels like and how your balance is. Also, your instructor may request you wear your actual shoes for the wedding. This will leave no surprises on the day when it comes to your shoes.
Consistency is the key when learning any new skill. When you keep lessons close together, you will spend less time reviewing material from the previous lesson, and more time adding new moves or perfecting the ones you know.
At some point, your instructor will ask you the size of the dance floor and the layout of the room. This will help them prepare you where to walk on the floor and how to move around in a way the looks the most natura.
