Your wedding should be the most beautiful and happy day of your life. Many couples find themselves dealing with umpteen details that come with planning the event. And they may feel stressed about the numerous decisions that they need to make. The months and weeks leading up to the wedding should be a fun and happy time. And taking wedding dance lessons can help in this regard.
Put Your Best Foot Forward
The first dance as a married couple is about the bride and groom, and what makes their relationship special. And this is why most dance studios that offer wedding dance lessons encourage couples to choose a song and a dance form that appeals to them. While for some this may be the traditional and elegant waltz, others may opt for a more fun and unconventional style of dancing like the Rumba.
Choosing the First Song
It is a good idea for the couple to choose a song that is meaningful to them. It should also have a beat that is easy to dance to. They may also choose a song based on their common love for a certain genre of music.
The song, the dance, and the steps it involves should be something the bride and groom are comfortable with. They may want to speak to their instructor about the same. If you are excellent dancers, you may enjoy a complicated routine. If this is not the case, it is important that you choose a dance that you would have fun with, and not worry too much about the steps.
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the first dance. And this is why it is vital for couples to choose a song, and accordingly a dance that they would enjoy. If you will be dancing to music played by a band, it would be a good idea to speak to the musicians about the first song and the beat you have been practicing to.
Most dance studios offer classes for wedding dance, and some also offer in home sessions. Usually such a package would include six to eight classes of one hour each. If you opt for a complex dance routine the number of hours of lessons would increase. It is important that you schedule the classes well before your wedding date. This way you will have enough time to practice in private too, and have fun doing so.
In case you have overlooked the dance lessons completely, do not worry, most dance instructors and studios also offer emergency classes that will help you move confidently and beautifully on the dance floor. Dance lessons can also be gifted to the couple by friends and family.
