A Few Things To Consider To Make Your First Dance As Stress Free, Easy, and Fun As Possible
- We recommend that you and your partner come in approximately three to six months prior to your event, especially if you have never danced before. Dancing cannot be mastered in a single lesson. Keep in mind that your schedule will get more hectic as the wedding day approaches.
- If you have a special song picked out, feel free to bring it in during your first lesson. The instructors will help you develop a dance to fit the song you’ve chosen. If you haven't chosen a song, it's okay. On your very first lesson we will introduce you to a few different dances that match different tempos and styles of music. We can help make suggestions depending on which dance you like and feels best to you.
- Be patient while learning. Dancing is a great stress reliever, and a fun date night, so don’t put too much pressure on each other.
- Don’t try to teach each other. You’ll both have a lot more fun dancing if you let your instructor do the teaching.
- Practice in the right shoes. Wear shoes to your lessons that are similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on the big day.
- Be consistent with your appointments. The more often you come in, the less review there will be on each lesson.
- Plan on coming in for your lessons at least once or twice a week to get the most out of them.
- Use the classes & socials when possible. Everyone feels most comfortable on a personal lesson, but the classes and socials will be closer to what the rest of your reception will be like, and the teachers will be there to help!
- Remember, your first dance is the FIRST STEP into a lifetime together and will be a moment that you will remember forever. So, why not spend your time learning to dance for more than one occasion and learn how to dance for all the other special moments to come!
