For most young people, their wedding day is the most important day of their lives. It’s a day of massive celebration, during which the whole world recognizes you and your spouse as a married couple for the very first time. The wedding day is also the day of the wedding dances – the couple’s first dance, the father-daughter dance, the mother-son dance.
The couple’s first dance is of course the most important and you wouldn’t want to mess this one up at any cost. The couple’s first dance is often seen as a sign of how compatible a newly married couple are, and it would be really embarrassing for you and your spouse if either one of you is out of step while doing it.
That’s why both you and your fiancé should register for dance classes at the earliest, to give yourself enough time to practice the first dance lessons.
First dance lessons offered in dance studios like ours in Monterey, Ca to prepare you for the big event and ensure there are no hiccups along the way. Whether you learn your first dance lessons the important thing is to practice regularly and show the right amount of commitment at all times.
The harder you practice, the easier and more fun will your first dance be on D-day, the time of your wedding. So enlist the help of a professional dance teacher.
And it need be just you and your future mate. You may want to invite your parents, siblings and friends as well to join dance classes along with the two of you. Make it a happy family occasion. Remember, family that dances together, stays together.
You think you have two left feet, and don’t think much about your partner’s dancing ability either – well, just go through the paces at your very first dance class and feel the difference. You would be astonished at just how good both you and your partner can be, as long as you have a trained dance teacher coaching you, helping you learn the basic dance moves, while gradually inserting a bit of complexity into your dance.
But there are a few things only you and your soon-to-be spouse should decide. Such as, which opening song would suit your first dance best? You certainly shouldn’t pick a song that you are not comfortable with or one that you clearly don’t like. And you shouldn’t pick a song merely because your fiancé loves it – it should be something loved by both, if that’s not the case, just chuck it. Discuss with your fiancé and try to find common ground.
Another thing to be kept in mind is that you shouldn’t look to impress the audience. You shouldn’t do the couple’s first dance to “wow” the audience, but just to show how graceful both you and your partner can be on your big day. Just keep it simple, don’t stretch yourself too much.
And putting too much pressure on your partner is never a great idea either, he or she might have second thoughts about the wedding if you become too demanding or expect perfection! Never add on to the pressure, your fiancé would anyway be under a lot of stress.
Weddings are a joyful occasion. The goal of the couple’s first dance is to demonstrate your togetherness as a couple and your compatibility, not to impress people with your footwork on the big day. Make your wedding memorable by booking your first dance lessons in our Monterey dance stuido.
