How to Plan Your First Wedding Dance
The first dance is one part of the wedding that shows how you and your partner can really move in-sync with one another. You don’t need to be a professional dancer to wow your guests at your first wedding dance, but what’s important is that you can dance with confidence and joy.
Here are some great tips to make your first wedding dance a confident and happy moment to share between you and your partner!
Find The Music For You
Chances are you wouldn’t want to dance with music that’s not your style. Find the type of dancing music that gets the blood flowing for you and your soon-to-be spouse, and make sure it’s one that you both can feel the rhythm. From timeless waltzes, to rumba dances, to even more contemporary pop music, the genre of dance that fits your style will be one that you can easily learn with your partner.
When you need to learn a dance, hiring a professional choreographer who can show you the right moves to practice can do the trick. Depending on your culture or customs you follow, certain dances are preferred over others, but don’t let that stop you from finding the dance you and your partner have always wanted to step on beat together.
Learn To Move With Your Partner
Practice makes better, and practicing with your partner is crucial to getting the dance down just right. You don’t expect someone who never rehearsed a speech to get it right the first time, and the same should be said with dancing.
For anyone not familiar with dancing as a sport or profession, it’s one of the hardest ones out there! Balance, rhythm, and stamina are some of the most important things with dancing, so get the feet tapping and practice your song! It doesn’t have to be perfect (no dance ever is), but what’s important is to learn the key steps and knowing how to step in time with the song.
Spin The Dance Your Way
Don’t forget to have fun with it! It’s your wedding so incorporate any special aspects to your dance to make it truly memorable. Props, mixing up genres, and even adding a little bit of karaoke can make your first dance a real treat for you and your guests.
If you’re looking for a more traditional slow dance, think about incorporating a nice waltz or your favorite slow dancing song to share a wonderful moment that expresses the two of you and your relationship. In expressing yourself through your first dance, you and your partner really can start the marriage off the right foot!
