About to get married?
What you need to know about preparation for your special dance
Wedding dance is our specialty and we will be happy to create a beautiful and memorable dance for you.
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Picking the song
It can be a traditional slow song, fast swing song or a Latin tune, but definitely something special for the two of you. If you need help with picking a song, we can make a recommendation or you can bring in a few songs you like and we can suggest you one from your playlist.
After you've chosen the song, your instructor will determine which dance is appropriate and begin to choreograph the steps. We will teach you everything you need to know: how the man should lead his bride onto the dance floor, how to find the beat in the music, how to take the dance hold, how to dance the steps with style and grace, how and when to end the dance and how to dip the lady and escort her off the floor.
Give yourself enough time
It usually takes about 5 lessons to choreograph the dance, but it's a good idea to start at least two month prior to the wedding day.
If you've left this for the last minute, we can arrange emergency sessions for you! We realize the many demands that the couple has on their time in the days before a wedding, so we can keep it simple and fun!
Friends and family
Often, parents, family, or friends will want to learn to dance for you special occasion. They are welcome to take either the group classes or private lessons with you or by themselves. We can also arrange semi-private classes for your group as well and doesn't cost you more then our regular Group Classes during the week, yet allows you to schedule classes at your own convenience and learn the dances you are most interested.
