5 Things you should know about your wedding dance

Wedding Dance Lessons

First dance bride in a restaurant

Your first dance as a married couple ranks quite high amongst the things that take place on your wedding day. We’d say, just about under the ‘I do’ bit. This is why many couples strive to make that dance as memorable as possible. We, here at Fred Astaire Dance Studio Roodepoort, are going to help you with that.

First things first. Let’s share a few secrets about your wedding dance we feel you should know.

It’s not that difficult

Whether you and your fiancé’s left foot knows nothing of the right, learning a wedding dance routine isn’t that difficult. You just need to take the pressure off, relax and go to a proper dance studio and let a good dance instructor take care of it. By the way, with ‘proper dance studio’ we obviously mean Fred Astaire Roodepoort. Nudge, nudge, winks and all of that.

The song is everything

A song can make or break your wedding dance, no lie. As a couple, you need to choose a song that means something special to both of you. There’s no point in dancing to a song that doesn’t make you feel comfortable or any emotion for that matter. The song sets the mood for your entire dance. That being said, you don’t have to choose a slow song. If you shared your first kiss to a rock n roll song, then hey, our dance instructors will choreograph a routine that suits that vibe.

Be sure to practice your dance in your wedding attire

Ladies, this tip goes out to you. You are going to want to practice your wedding dance in your wedding dress and heels in all its glory at least twice. The last thing you want is you or your husband tripping over your dress. If your dress constricts your movement, our qualified dance instructors will adapt the routine accordingly.

The last dance scene of Dirty Dancing is so 1987

We are certain that this is no secret but we will share the golden tip anyway. Recreating the last dance scene in Dirty Dancing is old-fashioned and tacky and that just about goes for every other existing dance routine. You want your first dance to be original and personal. Let us help you create a unique routine that speaks to who you are as a couple.

Wedding dance lessons is a good investment

Your first dance creates great expectation amongst not only your guests but yourselves as well. This is why investing in wedding dance lessons is every bit as important as spending money on your dress, cake, shoes and venue.
