The First Dance
It is the emotional highlight of the wedding celebration: the first dance of the
newlyweds. Sooner or later, everyone wants to learn to dance. Since all eyes will be on
you when you dance the first dance with your new spouse, why not learn in time for your
wedding! Dancing can be fun if you have the right teacher plus its a great stress
reliever during the hectic weeks before the big day. And great exercise too! But more than
these, it can develop the personal self confidence and carriage youll appreciate
on your wedding day and for the rest of your life. Dancing will give you a greater
appreciation of music. Youll enjoy your evenings out more because youll be
able to dance to nearly every song!
Some studios offer choreography to your first and last songs. Others offer private, group
and wedding party sessions. Make sure you find out exactly what youre getting and
that youre getting what you want, not what the studio wants to sell you.
Perhaps the most important attribute of good dancing is smoothness. It is NOT how many
steps that you (sort of) know! Smoothness adds grace and elegance very appropriate
qualities when you consider the Bride and Grooms attire.
Your lessons should take your physical self into account. It is important that you feel
comfortable doing the dance. Not all steps look good performed by every person. Be sure
that the studio understands your purpose in learning to dance and your timeframe. If the
program isnt progressing to your satisfaction, let them know. Of course, practice
makes perfect so practice, practice, practice.
The first dance is one of the most romantic moments of your wedding reception, and
also the start of your evening celebrations. Perhaps you already have a song that's
your song' and will make a perfect first dance track. If you don't... visit
