The Wedding Dance
Your first dance together as man and wife… It is a momentous day and one that you will never forget. That first dance will be one of the most memorable and timeless moments you will spend with one another on your wedding day. All eyes will be on you as you take the floor to dance your first few steps as man and wife.
Learning to dance for your wedding is a special gift that you and your spouse-to-be can give each other. Feeling confident and poised when you dance together will ensure that your very first dance as husband and wife will be a memory you and your family will cherish forever.
It wasn’t so long ago that a couple’s first dance as husband and wife, as special as it was, was only an effervescent memory – a fact that was no small blessing for couples who happened to be poor dancers. With the advent of home video, a couple’s first dance at their wedding is almost always recorded on tape, available down through the years for all of posterity to see.
That’s why prospective brides and grooms who want to give a polished, graceful or comfortable looking performance for their first dance are increasingly opting to take dance lessons to help prepare for what may be the performance of their lifetimes.
Wedding Dance Tips from the Experts:
Don’t wait until the last minute. It is recommended to start 4 – 6 months before hand to prepare your dancing. As you get closer and closer to your wedding date, your schedule will get even more hectic. Many of our wedding couples find that the distraction and discipline of dance lessons helps to carry the stress load and helps the couple to get away for an hour or two amidst the hustle and bustle of busy schedules to reconnect with one another.
If you have a special song picked out, you might want to prepare a special dance just to fit the music. But don’t forget that there will be dancing throughout your wedding. You will want to be prepared for all the music that they might play. No one wants to sit down in their own wedding.
Dancing can be the best way to start and maintain a healthy marriage. Dance lessons often referred to as “Marriage Insurance” and are a wonderful way to tell your spouse how much you value them and want to continue to grow with them as you start your new life together. What could be better than to have a wonderful hobby to look forward to after the honeymoon to enjoy with one another.
