First Dance – Special Offer!
The thought of getting on the dance floor in front of your friends and family, can be extremely daunting. If you feel you have
two left feet or don’t like being the centre of attention, then you may find yourself dreading it all day until it is over.
No-one has two left feet, well not that we know of and as long as you can walk, you are able to do a dance. Of course there are all levels of ability so work with what you have. If you choose to use a dance teacher, then after speaking with them, explaining your expectations, ability and apprehension, they can advise you on how many lessons you may need. It could just be a one off lesson, to help you look natural, maybe adding in a few turns and dips or you could go all out and spend some time with a choreographer creating that WOW dance. If one partner in particular is more worried about the dance, then speak to your choreographer about choreographing a routine that has steps where only one of the couple does most of the work. You need to also speak with your choreographer regarding your dress, head piece, train etc. as this can make it difficult to do certain moves. The more information you give, the better your dance will be suited to you, with no surprises on the day.
Another option is to learn from a dance DVD or YouTube tutorial. This can help with basic steps and if you are confident with choosing the appropriate style for your song, then ideally you should choreograph a small section to repeat throughout your dance, so you are not expecting one to lead or second guessing each other.
Song choice is one of the most important decisions of your big day. If the dance aspect of it is important to you, then
it is more about the tempo than the sentimental choice. Slow is not always better, it can sometimes be harder to
fill the counts. Saying that, the benefit of a slower song, is that less steps are required to be learned compared to a
quicker paced song.
On average three to four lessons are required to learn a fully choreographed dance and costs start from around £30.
Of course this varies. Ideally your song should be around 3 – 3 ½ minutes long. If longer, you have the option of
bringing the bridal party in, but after doing all the hard work, it may be worth doing a complete song, so you get the
ending and applause!
