You'll be Glad You Took Wedding Dance Lessons


Why would any couple go for the "wedding dance shuffle"? It happens often: the bride and the groom move their feet and the swing the upper body aimlessly, and everyone in the room wants the wedding dance over as soon as possible.

You have only one chance to make a great impression with your first dance on the big day; grab it with both your hands! Because there's magic in this moment; pure magic. Imagine the flow of the wedding gown on the floor as you walk to the sound of your first dance song.

The first dance is the only time when all eyes are on both of you; each and everyone waiting for you to dance as a married couple. You ought to wow the guests with your wedding dance.

Preparing for the first dance is easy and you can...

  • Learn to dance with ease & confidence
  • Dance to your chosen first dance song no matter how fast or slow it may be
  • Go for a simple dance or a carefully prepared choreography. The secret is simple; it's all about learning the basics
You can start your first dance lessons anytime you want, and here's how to nail your first dance:
  • Prepare to dance for at least two minutes before asking the guests to join you on the floor
  • Start with an introduction, which is the time you walk on the floor as your first song is on, and show the best of your wedding gown
  • Carry on with a simple yet impressive main wedding dance made of steps and variations to help you look relaxed and at ease (nothing outlandish or complicated)
  • Use a finale to make a dramatic finish at the end of the dance. It would give the groom the chance to finish it anytime he feels is the right moment to do so
  • Learn how to slow down your first dance and invite the guests to join in and dance next to you

It doesn't matter if you have danced before or not, or if you have a week, a month or a year before your big day. Wedding dance lessons, even a single one, would help a lot. You can do it; the devil though is in the details...

          1. You make everyone see the right posture, which makes for great photos (look how impressive Sophie's dress is in the photo above)
          2. When to look into one another eyes and when to check where you are on the floor
          3. How to move gracefully on the floor and build up your wedding first dance smoothly. The first 17-20 seconds are crucial as it is when issues, especially with the dress, can happen
          4. Ways to use changes in the music to throw in impressive moves and variations
          5. What to do if something goes wrong
          6. Tips on how to get your guests excited and want to come and join you on the floor

You want your guests dance and have fun. A well-crafted wedding first dance can really get this going, and you can learn this even with one lesson. Here's why...

  • You can make an informed decision as to what works best for your first dance
  • I can give you tailored advice to suit your first dance
  • You'll be able to see for yourself what dance suits you best and shape it to your first song
  • You'll find out what wedding dance package works for you
  • You can start practicing and improve your wedding dance right after your first lesson
