5 Tips for First Dance Bliss

June 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 150

Planning a wedding can be a very overwhelming experience, but these five tips will allow you to get through, and even enjoy, your first dance during this busy time.

Start early

To make your first dance feel and look natural you want to be able to dance through your routine in your sleep! When your big day rolls around, you want to feel calm and confident about your first dance, whether it's a simple routine or a soon-to-be YouTube sensation. You shouldn't be filled with worries of "Will I remember the steps?" or "I feel so uncomfortable." The best way to achieve a state of first dance zen is to start early with your lessons so you have more than enough time to make your first dance exactly what you want. For a simple first dance, plan on 2 months of regular private dance lessons and group classes. For a show-stopping routine, plan on 4 - 6 months of regular dance lessons and group classes.

Pick your first dance song or a few song options before your lesson

Your first dance should be as unique as you are! Your instructor can suggest a first dance song, but whatever song is special to you as a couple is the best song. Some songs are a bit easier to dance to than others, so if you have a few favorites bring them to your first lesson and your instructor will help you narrow it down to "the one."

Know the size of your floor and layout of the space

To create and practice a first dance that can be executed flawlessly, you should have a sense of the details of the space you will be performing in. Some dances are more suited to larger spaces, so knowing the approximate size of the dance floor is very helpful. Also, practicing with those details in mind will allow you to relax on the big day, knowing that your performance will be just like your practice.

Keep your lessons close together

The fastest way to learn anything is through repetition; this is especially true with dancing! If you take too much time between lessons, most of each lesson will be spent reviewing rather than learning new things. If you are able to take a few lessons a week for the first few weeks you will progress several times faster than if you came in for the same number of lesson but spread it over a longer time frame. Private lessons and group classes in combination can be especially helpful if you are interested in also learning general social dancing skills that you can enjoy throughout the rest of the reception.


This is the most important tip! Whether you take 5 lessons or 50 lessons, the key to dancing with confidence on your big day is practice. Just spending 5 - 10 minutes per day can make a world of difference. Make those minutes your calm, romantic "together" moments and dancing will quickly become your favorite part of the day!

Following these five tips will allow you to create a one-of-a-kind first dance that you can perform effortlessly on your big day.
