Your First Dance as Husband and Wife
Picture it: it’s your wedding day. You’ve spent the last year ironing out every detail to make it the perfect day. Your dress is everything you’ve dreamed of since you were a little girl. The cake is stunning, the decorations are beautiful, and the bridesmaids are beaming. There isn’t a dry eye in the house as the MC announces the first dance of the new couple.
The band starts to play “your” song, and your new husband leads you out on the floor. He takes you in his arms and…sways back and forth, in one spot, for the next three and a half minutes. What happened? Oh, you forgot to take dance lessons! Why would anyone spend that much time, energy and money on planning the perfect day, but leave out this one important detail? We have helped many couples prepare for their first dance as husband & wife and we have assembled a list of frequently asked questions & questions you need to ask.
How many lessons should you take?
This depends on many factors:
How Soon Should We Start Dance Lessons? At a bare minimum, for average learners who only want to learn a few steps, five hours of private lessons are generally sufficient. Allow enough time to practice between your private lessons and remember; the last few days/weeks before the wedding are very busy, so plan to start your dance lessons early enough to practice so you feel comfortable on the dance floor for “your” song.
What Dance Should You Learn?
This depends entirely on the song you pick. Pick a song that is meaningful to you, and then, with the help of your instructor, you can determine the dance.
Rumba & Foxtrot are very common dances & can be danced to many different types of music. You may end up picking a song that is difficult to dance to, but your instructor should be able to help you work it out. It is important that you like the song you pick & that the guests will enjoy it as you are dancing. Don’t be afraid to break from tradition. Some couples will do Swing, ChaCha or even Tango as their first dance!
Is Our Song Too Long?
We recommend that you dance about 2 – 3 minutes. Many people worry that their guests won’t want to watch them dance too long. If your song is longer than 3 minutes, we may be able to burn a CD with a shortened version for your DJ to play.
Pick a song that means something to you
Try to have a song picked by your first lesson so you can get started right away learning to dance to it.
