- If possible, try to find out the shape and size of the dance floor in your venue, especially any obstructions such as columns. This way, you can practice as close as possible to the actual dimensions that you will actually dance on during the wedding. Also remember that you will be wearing a tuxedo and the bride will be in a dress. Try to anticipate how your wedding attire will restrict or affect your movement. The groom should do his best to avoid stepping on the bride’s shoes and dress!
- Also, ask your band to practice the song in front of you. This way, on your wedding day you won’t be surprised by a faster/slower tempo or other unexpected variations to your selected wedding song.
- Inform your photographer and videographer to be ready to capture any special moves during your dance- whirls, dips, grand ending, etc.
Dance Reverie offers private wedding dance lessons that can be customized around your wedding plans. We understand you want your first dance to be perfect. These are the first steps you take as a married couple. The best way to prepare for your first dance is the same way you plan for other parts of your wedding – flowers, caterers, music, and attire.
We know you have a lot to plan and want your dance lessons to be as stress-free as possible. Dance Reverie caters wedding lessons to couples of all skill levels and requirements. We want you to feel comfortable and confident while preparing for your wedding dance.
Plan your wedding dance lessons several months before your wedding. This way, you have enough time to pick a special song, dance type, or length. Even if you’re not sure about the dance style you want to perform or even the song, we’re here to help your wedding dance be one less item to worry about.
Dance Reverie’s professional dance instructors are ready to recommend the best dance style/choreography that suits your wedding, dance length, and even assist with picking music. You can ask to learn any ballroom dance, Latin dance, or modern dance for your wedding. Often, the song that you pick determines the dance type.
