What to expect from Wedding Dance Lessons



Let’s face it, there’s a lot of pressure associated with the first dance, but it’s also the moment of a lifetime. It's yours alone to share and it's also the moment when all eyes are on you.

Make your first dance your best dance. Feel awesome, look amazing. Imagine the perfect wedding dance - this is when you’ll be glad that you had planned ahead and scheduled your wedding dance lessons with a dance choreographer.

Your First Consultation

You may feel nervous as you walk in for your first wedding dance lessons, but there’s really no need to! Dancing is a lot like learning a second language, no one expects you to come in with tons of knowledge already.

So take a deep breath and get ready to meet your wedding dance instructor!

During your consultation, your instructor will get to know you and your level of skill. They may ask if you have any previous dance experience, or what you hope to get out of the first dance.

You’ll also discuss the details of your wedding, as well as your interests and musical tastes. If you have a favorite song, for instance, your instructor can work with that.

If your culture has a traditional dance, and it’s something you’d like to incorporate, let your instructor know. This can easily be worked into any first dance!

Once you’ve made it through the initial icebreakers, it’s time for the logistics.

Depending on your wedding venue, your dance floor space will vary.

Accordingly, you’ll need to know the floor’s dimensions so you can work around them.

Even the type of dancefloor can have an impact.

Wedding Dance Lessons Will Help you Grow


Couples should take lessons together, as it’s a great chance to strengthen their bond as a couple. Planning a wedding is stressful, after all, you need time to blow off some steam!

Dancing is a great way to let out some of that stress and tension in a fun, physical fashion. Couples will learn and laugh together as your lessons will turn into a hobby instead of a chore.

Depending on your soon-to-be betrothed’s dance skill, you may also learn to be more patient. Some people are just more coordinated than others.

You should also expect to make a few mistakes.

But that isn’t a bad thing. Remember, you’re here to learn! Making mistakes is part of learning anything, whether it’s dance or mathematics.

If you already are a great dancer, you wouldn’t need lessons, so don’t feel bad and just have fun! Just embrace the experience and enjoy the ride.

By the same token, you should also anticipate plenty of laughs leading to your perfect day.

The History of Wedding Dances


The significance of the first wedding dance dates back to medieval Europe.

Traditionally, the first dance was an event reserved for royalty or special guests and signified the beginning of a ball or event.

North America adopted the tradition and switched it up a bit. While the first dance no longer opens the reception in most cases, it serves an equally important role. It now represents the beginning of the couple’s new lives together.
