Here are a few tips from the dance experts to consider for the big day:
- Don’t Wait Until The Last Minute
Your schedule will likely be very hectic as the wedding day approaches. We recommend starting your wedding dance four-to-six months in advance to allow more time for practice, especially if you are relative newcomers to dancing.
- No Song? No Worries!
During your first lesson, your instructor will introduce you to the most popular dances and songs used at weddings. If you already have a song, bring it with you and your instructor will get you started dancing to it right away!
- Be Patient When Learning
Dancing is a great stress reliever and a fun date night, so don’t put too much pressure on each other. It is important to remember that you both have different learning styles so be patient with each other and yourselves.
- Don’t Try To Teach Your Fiancé(e)
If you let your instructor do the teaching, we guarantee you’ll both have a lot more fun dancing. After all, our instructors are the best in the industry!
- Practice In The Right Shoes
Wear shoes to your lessons that are similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on the big day.
- Be Consistent With Your Appointments
The more frequently you come in, the less time you will spend on review each lesson. Plan for at least one lesson a week to get the most from your program.
- Use The Group Classes & Practice Parties When Possible
Everyone feels more comfortable during a private lesson, but the group classes and parties will be closer to what the rest of your reception will be like and the teachers will be there to help!
Learning to dance for a wedding is a special gift you and your spouse-to-be can give each other. Feeling confident and poised when you dance together will ensure your very first dance together as a married couple will be a memory you will cherish forever!
